“Mommy, I wanna wear these shoes,” Brenna declared as we headed outside to play this week. “They fit me,” she insisted.
I’m calling bluff on her sizing calculations.
Here’s a round-up of some of my favorite reads, events and moments in recent weeks!
March was a slow reading month for me, and I only got through one book – though a great one! I finished Undaunted by Christine Caine in March… I got to hear Christine speak at the She Speaks conference last year, and so many of her words were exactly what I needed to read last month.
In April, I poured through The Nesting Place by Myquillin Smith – which I loved so much more than I even expected! It was well-written, poignant and inspired me to see the process of making our new house a home in a very different way. Now I’m finishing up Interrupted by Jen Hatmaker (and eagerly awaiting her next release, For the Love!) and I’m also in the middle of The 5 Love Languages of Children and Hands Free Mama.
The kids are in a Dr. Seuss phase right after after Connor did a unit on Dr. Seuss at school… it’s been fun to select new Dr. Seuss books at the library that I hadn’t read before. There’s a Wocket in My Pocket is a clear favorite with my kids We also found a super cute book called Brontorina that we all really enjoyed… it’s about a dinosaur who wants to be a ballerina, and everyone helps to find solutions to her large size so she can become a dancer.
As a mom to a son who tends to be a “follower,” I really loved this blog post from Kelle Hampton about how to follow well and that not everyone should be a leader, but everyone should be themselves.
This guest blog post on Carly Findlay’s blog from Melissa at Sugar Coat It hit it out of the park. I love her perspectives on being a plus-size fashion blogger and what she has learned by not “fitting the mold” of the typical woman.
I love this post from Michele Cushatt about the things she learned about seeing a dream come true after launching her first book just 3 weeks after undergoing major (and painful) surgery for cancer.
“Connor, will you hold my hand?” And then I melt
We ditched all to-do lists in favor of the 70-degree weather and played outside one evening until the sun dropped…
Both preschool and her brother have sparked a new interest in coloring…
This is what small town voting looks like… wagon ride to the polls!
Maybe I should let you all caption this one
Wacky Wednesday at school! Christmas hat, PJ pants, backwards shirt and book bag, and duck slippers… of course.
Have a lovely Friday and the kind of weekend that is filled with happiness like powdered doughnuts!
