Just little bits of
These nerds are keeping me on my toes.
Our days fly by.
And totally awesome, actually.
We played a board game to learn about the states this week.
Under the sun.
Which Philly interrupted by smooshing his gross, dirty, summer bare feet into Niamh's face.
But, he also knows where Colorado is on a map.
And wants to move there someday.
Our house is plenty of mess.
And books and papers.
But, at the end of the day, it is filled with a sweet goodness.
But it is that good, we-filled-up-the-day-to-the-fullest tired that I love.
Niamh has bangs as of this morning.
Which gave her a splitting headache this afternoon~ but also,
She looks like a cartoon...and is so cute, I could squeeze her silly.
Philly is filling the end of his summer with outfits that would make Billy Ray Cyrus proud.
And he stops everyone to show them this:
Which is pretty weird.awesome.ballet-esque.
*Just a note, we do feed Mr. Bones.
I love doing our own Bible thing in the mornings.
We totally Ann Voscamp it out, people.
Kids have their own 1000 Gifts notebooks.
It is slow moving, the gift-writing.
Philly is on #9.
His #2 was "the shortest banana."
And his #6 was" the longest banana."
He ate two bananas this week and was thankful for both:).
I did not realize it would work~ this intentionally thankful thing...
But they BOTH will see something tiny.missable. inconsequential (before)
And now excitedly tell me they can't wait to write it in their notebook.
Sending out an air high five to AV.
You --->rock<--- in your sweet, gentle-worded way.
I made an activity to accompany a talk about Ephesians 6.
The Armor of God.
We've been talking a lot about spiritual warfare.
Entering into it.
Like a warrior.
You can print it out for your own little peoples if you want.
(Stampers can buy the stand-alone stamp for cheap-o in my shop;)
I will share our Bible activities as we go along...
in case you want to print them out, too.
Hope your weekend is lovely in every way, friends.
