I know that I am really far behind in these Project 366 posts. I have been taking pictures, though not every day. But as with many hobbies, there have been much more important things happening in life. We have been preparing for our home school year. And I have been working on small projects that wouldn't get much attention once we start school. This post is for the week of July 24 - 30.
Sunday: As is typical for the Lord's Day, I did not take a picture. This picture of Patrick was taken at the church when we were there for a violin lesson later in the week. I am thankful for Kyle's violin teacher. She has been teaching Kyle since he started at 4 years old and since she was 15!
Monday: I started working on the Mighty Luck quilt challenge again. I really enjoyed the color contrast exercise and the simplicity of the block I chose for it. I am thankful that I have some time to be able to enjoy sewing.
Tuesday: We were sad to have to end our therapy time at Kids Creek. I followed Keira and her therapist through their last session to get some ideas of what to work on at home. I am SO thankful for Keira's therapist. When we first met her, I had trouble understanding her as English is not her first language. But we quickly learned that she loved us and that she loves God. I am thankful for her kind and encouraging words and her humble and Godly attitude. Keira and I will miss her.
Wednesday: I didn't take a picture on Wednesday. Therapist gave Keira and Sophia paints. So they got to enjoy using them on Saturday. I love how you can see the pink starting to drip out of it's lid. I am thankful for color and creativity.
Thursday: A glorious downpour afforded the kids the opportunity to play in the rain. They love getting out their bikes and scooters and riding through the puddle near the bottom of the driveway. I am thankful for summer rain and thunderstorms. (Though the kids don't play in thunderstorms.)
Friday: Another child earned a donut! I am thankful for little ways to reward the kids for accomplishments.
Saturday: We decided to rearrange most of the furniture downstairs as a result of being given a piano. I really LOVE the new arrangement. This is the family room after we moved in the couches from the living room and changed the arrangement of the black chairs. I really enjoy this set up especially for when we do our reading during our school day. I am thankful for the ability to change and the excitement change can bring.
