May You have a Blessed Passover

I just wanted to wish your family and most blessed Passover and Unleavened Bread Holy week! We are blessed that Christ became our Passover lamb so that we could have a relationship with God and future life with God and Christ in His Kingdom!

My boys are excited for the upcoming week as we enjoy our special Unleavened Bread treats--especially our breakfasts of Dutch Babies, the fantastic oven pancake. I bought 18 boxes of Triscuits this week--hey there were on sale and we adore them! All different flavors too. And I bought me a wedge of my favorite smoked Gouda cheese! Yum!

We look forward to the Spring feasts every year. Such a joy to keep and celebrate our deliverance and freedom from the bondage of sin!

Have a simply wonderful weekend!

The Ship Sank

Remember last Friday? When I told you I felt like my body (the ship) was being attacked? That I could feel the invaders? And that I hoped I would be better after a day of rest?

That would be a big N-O-P-E.

Unfortunately, Friday night was pretty dreadful. I was awake--THE ENTIRE NIGHT--so hot and tossing and turning. Couldn't sleep a wink! I took my temperature, but it wasn't high at all. Barely 99. ONE HOUR. I got maybe ONE hour of sleep that night. I woke and just knew. *BAM* I was down.

Building Vehicles with Super Beads from Zirrly {Product Review}

Are your kids into those fusible bead sets? The ones which almost make you shudder because of all the tiny little beads which then have to be heat set with your iron? Do you have horror stories of a time when you accidentally dropped your child’s creation sending beads everywhere and causing a complete emotional meltdown in your child? Wish there was an easier way? Maybe you should check out the Zirrly Super Beads we have been reviewing!

File Folder Games: Hands-On History and Geography with Home School in the Woods {Product Review}

I love searching for ways to make learning fun. Some of the easiest are games. There are many games which incorporate things like the maths, but there aren't as many things which help teach other subjects. Especially history and geography. Enter File Folder Games. With just a bit of extra time, a file folder game can be created for nearly any subject thanks to the help of Home School in the Woods. Over the last several weeks, we have been reviewing two of their Á La Carte projects-- A Trip to Town and Name that State!--both file folder games.

When the ship is going down...

Tell me I am not the only one who knows when their body has been compromised? When their immune system has suddenly one on high alert and you just FEEL the germs breaching the wall? This is me today. I have a feeling it's gonna happen. I've made it almost through the whole season without catching anything nasty. But I *feel* it. I sense the ship is sinking. I will let you know if I am right or not. Hopefully I am not right. Please oh please let me not be right. I will check back in on Sunday...I am hoping my day of rest (aka my most beautiful blessed Sabbath) will fix what ails me. 💜 Tonight, I am drinking some herbal teas. Taking some extra immune boosting supplements, and hoping for the best!

Adventures in Crochet: Crochet-a-Long and 100% Cotton Yarn

I am just really enjoying exploring crochet. There is something satisfying about finishing a project or exploring new yarn. I think crochet is a giving activity. I rarely desire to keep for myself what is being made. Right now out of all my projects only 2 are actually FOR me. I think that's why I enjoy it even more. In this post, I want to share another Crochet-A-Long update and my newest project in exploring the world of 100% Cotton yarn.

Crochet-A-Long (CAL) Update

Okay, so since my last post, the newest block design has been released. It is a gorgeous block called the Crocodile Dahlia Square. But I won't lie. It intimidates me. In my CAL group, it seems EVERYONE has been having issues with it. It is very different in style in that you do the block

Kids and markers. Now THAT is a potentially hazzardous combination! LOL. If your children are like mine, they love using markers. But if your children are ALSO like mine, they tend to get markers all over THEMSELVES! Or someone leaves the lid off and ruins the fun for everyone. But what if I told you there is a new marker on the block that is non-toxic, washable, AND has a 7 day Cap-Off-Won't-Dry-Out Guarantee? Let me introduce you to Magic Stix Washable Markers from The Pencil Grip, Inc. Over the last several weeks we have been reviewing the 24 pk of these kid friendly markers and are ready to share our thoughts!
