So this was a bad week for pictures! I didn't even take my first picture for this week until Thursday, though I did take several different types of pictures on Saturday. This post is for the week of August 14 - 20, but will be extra short.
Tuesday: Taken of Saturday, this is Avalyn's water kefir! Look at all those bubbles! I am thankful that Avalyn is excited to help take care of our kitchen experiments!
Wednesday: Taken on Saturday, this could be any day this week. The kids, and especially Keira, have taken to making things from duct tape. Check out Keira's set up! I am thankful for duct tape and the amazing things that it can do! I am also thankful that it is cheap and that the kids haven't gotten permanently stuck to my carpet! :)
Thursday: I finished working on my niece's tshirt quilt. Her grandmother had made it for her. She had never made a quilt before, so even though she did many things right, there were some problems with it. Madison gave it to me to fix. It took me much to long to get to it, but I finally got it all back into good shape! I am pleased with how it turned out, and it gives me a strong desire to make my own from concert shirts that I collected in high school and college. I am thankful for the opportunity to work on this quilt. As I work on quilts (especially ones for others) I take the time to pray for them and I am glad to have the extended time (and reminder) to pray for my niece.
Friday: Adrian brought home flowers a couple of days earlier, but not being really interested in taking pictures, it took me several days to get to photographing them. I love yellow! I am thankful for the variety in this world and so much beauty that God created.
Saturday: Keira begs to put Patrick down for quiet time. She loves to sing to him. But the only problem is, he weighs about half as much as she does! I love seeing her carry that chunk! I made her stop so I could take a couple of pictures. I am thankful for Keira and her love for her brother. She is often caring and very thoughtful of his needs.
