Here’s a bit of my ramblings for this week…no particular theme…no particular order…
*Elias has been learning a little about sentence structure. We’ve also been learning about Ancient Egypt. Therefore, Elias keeps getting confused about that little dot that goes at the end of most sentences. When I ask him what goes at the end of a sentence he wrinkles his nose and says, “A pyramid?” (Yes, we begin a sentence with a capital letter, and always be sure to put a pyramid at the end. Oh, he’s so cute!)
*Yesterday while I was helping Justus with his math, Malachi went into the kitchen to help himself to a chocolate chip orange muffin. He was in there a long time, but I was busy with Justus and forgot to keep tabs on him. When I went into the kitchen later I saw that Malachi had dissected each of the eight muffins that had been leftover…picked out all of the chocolate chips, eaten them and left the rest of the muffins in a nice pile. Little stinker!
*Tuesday night our neighbor brought us over a big cantaloupe from his garden. It is (was) so yummy!
*Last night when we were having our family prayer time, Elias’ prayer was something like this: “Thank you God for this wonderful day. And thank you that my birthday is coming up soon. In Jesus’ name, Amen.” (Elias’ birthday is in January. I guess that means it’s coming up….soon.)
*I made a few pints of salsa yesterday with all those tomatoes and peppers. We haven’t tried it yet, but it sure smelled good! And of my recipes…I will share any and all of them with you…except for this salsa recipe. It was my mama’s and it can’t be shared. :) But I’ll share any of my other recipes I promise.
*We’ve had Fall-like weather here for over a week. It has been absolutely and totally refreshing. Ah, God is good.
*Yes, let’s say it again…God is good. Have a blessed day!
