Let's Click 365 Days

I cannot believe we are entering March! Anyone else ready for spring?

{Sunday, February 23rd}

The kids took Sundance a bath. They tell me she is getting better at tolerating her baths. MaryEllen wrote a nice paper on how to take a cat a bath for writing this week. If she allows me, I should post it. I enjoy reading her writing.

They gave her treats for being such a good sport and to keep her still so MaryEllen could brush her.

The neighbor girl, we'll call her Alex, had a birthday on Valentines day, so the kids got together a box of goodies for her. MaryEllen's wardrobe consists of mostly t-shirts that she decorates with iron-ons of her drawings. Alex asked if she could make her one, so MaryEllen made one up for her birthday.

When the kids gave her the gift, she was SO excited. She ran home to show her dad and nana (I am guessing as they are the only two there). Later her dad came by to thank the kids. I thought that was nice.

Don was off Monday. He and Donnie took the Marietta trip alone because he had to repair his sister's porch. It was a long day for both of them.

MaryEllen and I stayed home and enjoyed a game of Scrabble. We didn't play for points, just word building. 🙂 It is a game we both enjoy.

We had Alex over for a little while on Tuesday. She was telling us how she wished she had a Bible to take to church with her, so MaryEllen thoughtfully gave her one of hers. For Christmas, the kids got new Bibles. I wanted them to have more of a study Bible. MaryEllen said she had thought about what to do with her old Bible. The Lord opened up the perfect opportunity and I am proud of MaryEllen for blessing Alex. Alex was SO excited. I snapped this picture for MaryEllen so that she will remember to whom she gave her Bible and how happy she made this young girl.

MaryEllen noted that you never know where it will lead. 🙂

I wish I could post Alex's smile as it is a beautiful one as well as a super happy one, but since I didn't get permission from her parents, I cropped the picture.

Bible Gifting

Our family movie for Tuesday night was Thor: The Dark World. We watched this movie when it came out in theaters in December, but it was still like watching it for the first time. I am sure the kids remembered more of it than I did, them being young and all.

The kids were super excited that we purchased this while out running errands on Tuesday. It was an enjoyable movie with lots of action.

The day was drawing to a close and I hadn't snapped a picture yet. Donnie was posing his action figures on the dining table. I was in my room thinking of what I should take a picture of when it hit me. Donnie had just posed his action figures neatly on the dining table...why not? I went to take a picture and I found them all knocked down. He had used his figures as target practice, using one of the shooting thingys from one of the figures arsenal.

I told him I had come to take a picture and so he offered to pose them once again.

He will sometimes drill me on these characters to see if I know them all. I get more confused with the Transformers...they all look alike. One time I told him, I'll name them when you can name the twelve disciples. He can name the twelve disciples, but I still can't name them all. lol!

I entered this giveaway saying, 'If I win it, I win it. If I don't, I don't.' And I won! I was telling my husband that I get a lot of books to encourage me on my motherhood and parenting journey or my growth in Christ, or for my own self-betterment, but I rarely, if ever, get books on marriage. This will be a treat. I'll start it when I finish one of the books I am currently reading. 😉

No bills in this bunch of mail, just good stuff. I like mail days like that!!

I Won This Book!!

MaryEllen is in Algebra 1! I wanted to see if I could still do a little Algebra. The kids find it weird that I enjoy doing math. I did pretty good. A few times I had to research a little by reading a previous lesson...I was doing MaryEllen's current lesson.

Donnie likes it when I race him with his lessons. He is in Saxon Algebra 1/2. I don't do it often, but sometimes I will to motivate him (he's my dawdler). Before, I would have to wait for him, we do one problem at a time, but now sometimes I am still doing a problem and he is waiting for me.

Can I Remember Algebra 1

{Saturday, March 1st}

What to snap today? I was cleaning the laundry had gotten out of hand. My washer and dryer were piled high with folding that needed to be done. I was having a hard time putting the ironing board back. It was time to tidy up. This is when I found a mailing box full of these...vacuum bags and belts. This is the boy scout in my husband...always being prepared. This runs into all aspects of our lives. I have a years worth of laundry detergent too. lol! It is one thing that I love about Don, but it can also drive me nuts because our living space is only 900 sq. feet. I am running out of 'hiding' places.

I don't like the bagless vacuums. I hate emptying them. It doesn't help with my allergies either. So, we searched for a vacuum that uses a bag. I am much happier. 🙂

See ya next week,
