In my life this week…we started the week by having all the kids cousins spend the night Saturday night. We had 7 kids!
|L-R: L age 4, Z age 6, YDD age 8, ODD age 11, DS age 17, and A age almost 5|
|Nothing like a collection of Legos to keep kids occupied!|
|DS and O age 1 are watching a ZuZu Pet Hamster driving around. O was fascinated!|
|More Lego Playing|
|O and ODD - so serious!|
|O and Uncle DH lounging|
|O and Aunt Becca I loved having a little one to snug for a bit|

Favorite resource this week... Homeschool Share. I am now in charge of our older kids book club, and we did not get our book finished until Wednesday. No worries because Homeschool Share had great stuff for me. Saved my bacon!
My and My kids' favorite thing this week was… our trip to Northern Lights Pub to have dinner and see Wreck It Ralph. We did it on Valentines Day and we all loved the movie.
Things I’m working on… preparing for state required testing at the end of this school year for both girls. A couple things we need to cover, but it's mostly getting YDD accustomed to the idea and keeping her relaxed enough to show herself well. I know she knows that material, but she's got great test anxiety.
|I got this for Christmas and I LOVE IT. I recommend you start reading this as soon as possible even if your girl is 1. It's a great book with ideas for raising your girl before she's a tween.|
|I recently got to hear Heidi speak and loved her. I have been enjoying this book. While in person, she is HILARIOUS, the book is not so much, but it is excellent.|
|My fluff this week. I am thinking with it being NFL off-season, I may start spending my Sundays reading.|
|ODD read this one and loved it and informed her sister that she MUST read it.|
|ODD finished this as well. She gave it only 4.5/5 stars because she said the ending was depressing|
|YDD finished this and said it was depressing as well. We apparently need some uplifting books around here!|
I’m thankful for… for the chance to start anew every morning. I am thankful for all the changes that He's made in me. I am thankful for the opportunity to be real each week right here. Life is not perfect. I am not perfect. But life is good and we're appreciating God's many blessings for us.
