Project 366: Week 28

I have been working on preparing for the school year by working on getting a meal plan in place and by getting all the classes I will be teaching for Covenant classes planned out.  These pictures are from the week of July 10 - 16.

Sunday: I didn't take any pictures.  This one of Patrick is from Saturday the 16th.  You will find that Patrick on the table is a recurring theme.  Though it is not always in search of food, Patrick loves to climb on top of anything!  I am thankful for this happy and determined little boy.

Monday: Kyle earned a treat for memorizing all of Ephesian 3.  He wanted to go to Krispy Kreme.  Got to love Krispy Kreme!  I am thankful for my kids ability to memorize and learn.  They put me to shame.  I really should put more effort into memorizing like they have.

Tuesday:  We got a lot of new books from the library.  Mercy immediately picked out one that she thought looked interesting and sat down to "read" it.  I thankful for my kids' love of books and reading!

Wednesday: Patrick on the table!  Yes, his pants are wet.  He just came from spilling his sister's cup all over himself and the floor to eat cheerios on the table.  I am thankful that the crazy antics of a toddler are short lived!  (Though I love his craziness most of the time.)  I look forward to the time I don't have to keep all the chairs to the table in a different room to protect whatever is on my table!

Thursday: Sophia made popsicles for everyone from Trader Joe's Mint Hot Chocolate.  I am thankful for my kids love of cooking!  It is fun to watch them plan, prepare, and make food for everyone to enjoy.

Friday: When Keira and Kyle stopped sucking their thumbs, we told them we would get them a treat.  We hadn't really figured out what that should be, so we delayed.  I finally found a stuffed bear for Kyle and a stuffed Iguana for Keira.  Kyle had asked for a stuffed bear for a while, and Keira loves any kind of reptile!  I am thankful that the kids have stopped sucking their thumbs!  That was such a huge thing for Keira especially! 

Saturday: We decided to help the kids make marshmallow blow guns.  The kids have had a marvellous time shooting marshmallows and small pom poms with the guns.  Kyle and Avalyn also made rubber band guns.  We have instituted a rule that the marshmallow shooters can be used to shoot people, but the rubber band gun is to be treated like a real gun.  The kids must remember the rules of safe gun handling with them.  I am thankful for my kids' love of creative and imaginative play!
