Weekends over back to the Haven!

We have had a super busy weekend here. The 1st one in a while. I'm not so sure I like them....I'm feeling tuckered out today! We started off the weekend early with our favorite "fast food". Thank you Chick-fil-A! We hadn't been in quite a long time and was it yummy!

Going also made for a nice goal! The chickadees knew on Thursday night that weekly household chores needed to be completed before making costumes. What incentive!

Yes here I am. I wasn't going too, but where would have been the fun in that! I had a wonderful yummy lunch.

7/11 Can you believe it! We hit 7/11 too! We haven't had a Slurpee in I can't remember when. Great for our health and the pocket book. But it sure was fun!

P.J. Palooza

Then my oldest and I went to the P.J. Palooza at our church. Every summer our church host an event for all the ladies 13 and over. It's a fun/crazy night of crafting, dance (just girls), sweet and salty food, a movie, and sleeping (if there is time). We didn't hit the hay until 5 a.m.! See why I'm tried!

Look at what my oldest chick made! I was so impressed. It fits her Bible. I think she did a great job!




I thought the Nester might like this one! I now have a funky summer purse.





I made this one for my 2nd chick who wasn't old enough to attend, but was there in thought!

We also tried our hand at anklet making. It was great fun. The theme this year was being a princess. Of course we are all Princess' of our mighty Lord and King. We had crazy girl fun!

So those were the 2 main events. We also had a birthday party , a bar-b-que and a Dave Ramsey reunion class to boot! I need to rest!

But today's plan is:

Pray: Specific direction for our new school year and planning (or over planning).

Laundry

Menus and Fill out Veg Order

Oh I was supposed to get dressed! (sometimes I get my best work done in my Jammies!)

Have little chicks read and swim in pool.

Have a wonderful day!

Thanks for the comment. What is edu-tracks?

We have been working on getting laundry caught up from our trip to Eastern Oregon. Now I am trying to get my menus put togther for the next few weeks.

Do you homeschool all your girls?

okay. I think that sounds awesome. I might look into that.

Homeschool, well, I have homeschooled them all, but took the last two years off. We live in the country, where 95% of the residents are christian, so when we moved out here 3 yrs ago, I looked into the local school, right around the corner. The grade school is AMAZING, it is ran more like a co-op, so the two younger girls will continue going there until 5th grade, as for middle school, different story, I expected it to be the same, but its not. This past yr, oldest daughter decided to be a follower and not a leader, and I told her, I promised the Lord, if I saw, heard or felt anything, I pull her back into homeschooling, so that is what we are doing. She will be an 8th grader, so I am looking for stuff for her. New stress here, making me a little tired, but it weighs on my heart so, what todays 13 yr olds face that we didn't at that age.

She is also somewhat resistant (oh well) but it isn't making it easy. She hopes I'll change my mind the more she whines!!!!good luck baby!

Okay, so what do you do for down time? I scrapbook with a couple of my girls. We also read together, or do some hand stitching, or just a good ole nap!!!!
