What I'm thinking: That I am behind on a blog post! Nutsy celebrated her 5th birthday on Friday; usually I do a blog post for each child on their birthday but missed it because we were at the State Fair. I am also approaching my 100th blog post and I have something fun planned...I think that post will make it into this week so watch for it. :-)
What I'm reading: This last week I don't think I picked up a book, except once while in the bathroom. I am planning to change that this week.
What I'm listening to: Bookworm humming, Nutsy and Dasher having a silly conversation and the microwave beeping.
What we're learning: We learned so much about rabbits and State Fair last week. One day the two older kids got to participate in a rabbit demo in front of an audience. I am very happy with what they have learned all this last year in 4-H.
What I'm watching: Over the weekend we watched one of my favorite war movies, The Guns of Navarone. I love the story line and we get a kick out of the models they use when they blow things up.
What's cooking: This week I am going to try PW's Grilled Chicken & Pineapple Quesadillas.
What I'm buying: I finished my menu plan for the month and so I am out to get our shopping done the next two days. We are also doing a remodel of the rabbitry so I am pricing different things.
What I'm thankful for: I am SO thankful that there are people out there that want to buy our rabbits! We were under a bit of pressure because as of last Friday, the 11 babies out there were old enough to mate. I don't have the space to separate all of them so I desperately needed buyers. And then Lord provided some very nice people who took 7 of them. We are still selling the rest though...
What I'm creating: ...since it looks like we can sell these rabbits, it looks like we will continue this project in 4-H so we need to upgrade the rabbitry. So I'm exploring plastic vs. metal pans, metal guards and fly spray options.
What I'm praying: That I would not discipline from a merely moral perspective, but show my children the gospel, and how much their sin shows their need for the Savior.
What I'm planning: We have a couple of trips coming up in the next month so I need to start thinking about those. One is a family reunion and the other is our church camping trip.
What we did this last weekend: Oh my word, we were at the State Fair every day last week except Monday and Thursday. State Fair is incredibly competitive and we were the little guys. But it was a great learning experience....like I'll make sure next time that their tattoos are readable, and make sure the kids really ARE registered for Showmanship. I had some panic moments but God is good and everything worked out fine.
What I'm looking forward to: I am meeting a friend for lunch today, we have play practice on Wednesday and I am planning to do all the cleaning and laundry that got neglected last week.
A picture to share:
~It was 105 degrees this day at the fair; so we spent a fair amount of time in front of the mister fans.
