Today Josie was dressed rather...brightly. A funky shirt, denim skirt over wild stripey tights and crazy boots. Robert came home and said "Hey, you look like Punky Brewster!". She came into the adjoining room where I was and said "Mom? What's a punkin rooster?!" lol. We went to the computer and I googled PUNKY BREWSTER and discovered that there are YOUTUBE episodes AND that the first several seasons are available on DVD now!!! WAHOOO!
here are some fun finds I thought I'd share.
Talk about ADORABLE!!! If you have kids- check it out.
My faves... classic stlyed dresses, personalized felt barettes, silky soft cotton knit mod leggings, sweet jumpers...(happy sigh).
How was that for a deep, thought provoking blog entry?!
We went to the Homeschool Swim yesterday afternoon and the kidlets LOVED it. As soon as they got in the water they began recalling what they'd learned in swim lessons this past Summer. They had a LOT of fun and enjoyed playing with friends- racing, jumping, "bolly" flopping (aka belly flops) and many sputters and giggles. It was nice for me also- I got to visit with a few moms and swap ideas and successes/struggles with how school is going for all of us.
Today is the FIFTH day in a row that I've been experiencing the WEIRDEST thing. The muscles underneath my eye- just above my cheekbone- are intermittently twitching. It's happened before- too much coffee and I'll get a little twitchy for an evening- but NEVER 5 full days. I don't know if it's related to caffeine intake in this instance because on several of the 5 days I've had this I haven't had any coffee/soda and other days I've had a cup or two--no days of excess. What the..?!?!? I was joking around with some girlfriends saying "Yes, it's warning me I'm about to stroke out, I'm sure" and honestly, I'm a tiny bit concerned why this IS lasting so long. I hope it's nothing.
Here are a few things I made for Christmas gifts for 2007. Handy dandy purse calendars for 2008. And I made sihlouettes of my nephews and my girlfriends' kids also. They were ALOT of fun and the results were amazing. There's no mistaking what child each one is. I'm toying with adding this as an offering in my Bella Carte designs. I plan on doing a new one each year for my children..they grow and change so quickly- the sihlouettes will be such a precious recollection! I'll share a pic of my kidlets soon.
Have a wonderful weekend!
It's going pretty well...we've had a bumpy road to travel but we're toughing it out.
The first year is the hardest...or so I've been told. Others have stated this and then continued on with "AND the next year. AND sometimes the NEXT year too..."
Hearing this doesn't exactly instill a feeling of confidence that I'm going to make it, but I appreciate the honesty of it. It's a literal LEARNING PROCESS.
Right now, one of my favorite bloggers, scrappers and kindred-spirits..Ms.Kelli Crowe is doing a series of posts on being a homeschool family and how they roll. I'm always excited to get a new perspective, but admittedly- you always relish input from people you find a kinship to. Granted, we've never met-- but everything I've read and seen leads me to believe, if we met, we'd get along swimmingly. I'm thankful she's taken on the persistent pleas of other homeschool moms (along with myself) and decided to grace us with her take on it all.
Tonite is AWANA's and the start of our next session of Wednesday night classes (in lieu of a service). We're beginning WAY OF THE MASTER tonight and I'm looking forward to it! Robert and I worked with our College age group on the series this past Summer and it's one I think every person in church should check out. SUCH an amazing tool to get out there and evangelize-- which, let's face it, is our reason for walking on this Earth! Sharing Jesus with everyone we encounter is imperative but as Christians, we fall short EVERYDAY. Me? Guilty as charged!!!!!
Last thing for today.... I saw this poster in an issue of DOMINO a long time ago and wanted it. I still want it. BADLY. I'd love to have this hanging in my house. Groovy daily reminder, dontcha think??
