Crazy times, ‘eh?
Well! My email inboxes are exploding and apparently are incapable of being tamed, but I’m trying! We went on a family vacation to a South Carolina beach and the kiddos all go to be introduced to the ocean and the concept of waves for the first time. That was fun and a good distraction for physical and mental healing.
I have been busy cross stitching and going for lots of distraction these days and honestly, I am getting better. Interestingly, I gained a bit of weight with this last pregnancy, but since it did not take the normal route it did not shed as quickly. So please, pray for me to figure that out. I’m hoping a little more seriousness with Trim Healthy Mama and South Beach Diet will help.

I’m working on some children’s picture book reviews. I just finished an amazing read by Laurie Alice Eakes called Collision of the Heart, it would make a great one for adding on your winter romance list involving a train wreck, espionage, kidnappers, and more. I’m also enjoying Susan Wise Bauer’s re-releases and updated versions of The Well-Educated Mind 2nd edition and soon The Well-Trained Mind 4th edition.
We are also really getting our ducks in a row and collecting all of our school materials for the new year. I still have a few materials to acquire. This year will be a Kindergarten and Third Grade year. At this point, I do not know that I really do an organized tot-school for the newly turned two-year-old, but time will tell. At least with my experience, I know where to find numerous great printables. The 2016-2017 school year will be focusing on The Old Testament, the New Testament, Greece & Rome, the Asian East, Fairy Tales and more.
Oh! and p.s. I will be attending the Christian Fiction Reader’s Retreat in Nashville coming soon. If you will be there, I’d love to meet you in person!
