We are having a great day with school today. It's not that anything out of the ordinary happened. It's just that the kids know what to expect now, and they have gotten to where they can do their worksheets independently. Even though they are working on our roof and it is LOUD, the boys were able to take their worksheets to their room and complete them while Ella helped me fold laundry (meaning she handed me stuff from the basket). Lila sat contentedly nearby and put herself to sleep. I'm not saying every day is (or will be) like this, but it's nice to see them fitting into a routine. I was just happy to accomplish something other than school today!! Yesterday was a bit crazier, I mean just look at this crew!
It's good news for me, because I need all of the "free" time I can get. My sister and I are gearing up for a craft fair in November, and there are crafts to be crafted!
So if you are local (Toledo area), make sure and hit me up for the info, and if you aren't I do mail orders as well. Here's my page! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Baby-Kisses-Bowtique/102517639810231 There will be taggie blankets, baby legs, bows, bow holders, jewelry, and anything else we can dream up in the meantime.
It's good to know that just because we have a crazy day at home, it doesn't mean the next day won't be calm, cool, and involve a clean(er) house and some crafty fun! It could be that encouraging bible study we had last night about building character in the midst of spiritual warfare. Despite all of the things some of the ladies are dealing with right now, they are still able to be an encouragement to others and able to come together and have a very blessed time. Praise the Lord for great fellowship and friends!!
