daybook & links!!...

I have done a few of these before and really enjoyed doing them! I actually try to do a variation of this almost every single day and print out to keep in my homemaking binder.I often just don't have the time to post it on the blog!  I wanted to blog today and didn't really know what to blog about. This just came to my mind. :)

Bible verse:  "Love your neighbor"  Matthew 5:43(Our memory verse this week)


recipe: chicken tortilla soup & High Fiber Nutritious Oatmeal Cookies(recipe tomorrow!)


activity with kids: making cookies & homemade whole-wheat bread & pizza dough

today's target cleaning areas: laundry put away (only 2 loads today, Praise the Lord!!), bedrooms(everything in it's place)

Something Charlie needs for me to do: He's been home for 2 days...not much for me to do for him!

Something special for my husband: Making his favorite cookies.

Something special for my children: We are reading "Little House in the Big Woods" before naptime...they love it!! We read the chapter about the "Dance at Grandpa's (the sugar snow) today"..such fun!

project: working on the chicken coop! Tons of homeschooling computer work (aka research and planning) to do!!

on my bedside table: Traveling Light by Max Lucado and Crazy Love by Francis Chan...also, always, Sally Clarkson (right now, it's Ministry of Motherhood).. :)

In our schoolhouse: Oh boy, I have a bunch of links for you today!! 

*This chore chart...love it!! We made Claire & Lily's this morning and I am just waiting on a chance to laminate them so we can get started! I will post pictures once we get that done. Here's a photo of the one on the provided.  




*this blog is really cool! I found sooo many neat ideas here! 1+1=1 blog 


*Making a Peace Place: (This is something I really really want to do in our home..peace is something I CRAVE with all my soul. I strive every day to make our home a peaceful haven and can always feel the negative effects when I don't give my 110% of my efforts.) I thought this was wonderful and started working immediately to put this into effect. Please read these links and use them to make your home a more peaceful environment for your family! We could always use more peace! :)
