Monday Meanderings

Bible Study:
Memory Verse

Reviewing the kids memory verses with them....

Husband Encouragement

He has alot of trips to make this week.....I am going to try to be up when he leaves in the mornings and try not to be yelling (er....raising my voice just a little bit.... :) ) at the kids when he gets home...and I am going to make his favorite chocolate chip cookies this week. 

Train Them Up

* Work on getting back into routines....vacations are so bad on this

* Work on praising them for their good works......The have been such good helpers and I dont tell them enough how good they are....Still working on this....

* Keep on doing our Bible reading in the morning and at night.  (When I sit down to read my bible at night before bed, they get their bibles and sit quietly and read....then just before they go to bed, we read from the bible and answer questions they have. They have started really enjoying this..)

Must Do
* Get garden ready to plant.....should have been done already.  But lacking good weather and time...

* Start seeds for garden..so they will be ready to go in the ground in a month...

* Finish girls aprons (no I still havent gotten this done..)

* Finish Alainas dress (havent gotten this done either)

* Two possibly three play days this week....

Garden.....yes this is a zone....and the rest of my house is pretty much okay. 


Monday- Lunch--Salad
                Supper-- Tostadas
                Supper--Seasoned Baked Chicken Breast and Veggies
Wednesday--Lunch--Sausage Egg Toaster Sandwiches
                     Supper-- Bible Study--Crockpot beef enchiladas
Thursday--Lunch--Cereal (homemade granola) Fruit
                 Supper--Steaks, Salad, Baked potatoes
             Supper--Hamburgers  oven fries veggies
Saturday-- Lunch-- Spaghetti
                 Supper--Out to eat with Paul
Sunday--Lunch--Leftover Spaghetti Salad
              Supper--Cereal (homemade granola)  We like to keep it simple on Sundays...

Like I said, Paul will be gone several days this week and the kids are really getting in to cooking...so alot of it is stuff they can either make on their own (with supervision of course) or that they can really help alot with. 

Fun Things

* Playdays (as mentioned above)
* Getting to help get the garden ready
* And redoing our flower beds
* And outside alot!!!!!!!!

For more Monday Meanderings, visit Sarah!!!
