Monday Meanderings

I think this is the first I've done this again since Carter was born 3 weeks ago. Now it's to get back to routine!

Bible Study

Fruit of the Spirit with Beth Moore

Memory Verse
Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things."

Husband Encouragement
* Leave little treats and notes for Kevin to find throughout the day on Valentine's Day.

Train Them Up
* Continue working on new habits with responsibility chart.
* I know it may seem a little ambitious right now with a new baby, but I want to try to get back to doing school time again. They love it and have actually been asking for it lately.
* We've never done this before but I want to take Eli to the store sometime this week to pick out a small birthday present for Hannah. I think he'll enjoy this.
* me-- calm voice

Must Do
* call Grandma
* mail letters
* write thank-you notes
* catch up on laundry!!!
* clean dining room
* submit info for MOPS newsletter

everything really since we're having everyone here this weekend for Hannah's birthday

Menu - Kevin's working nights M-Th so that means I won't really be cooking anything big those days

Monday - loaded potato
Tuesday - chicken chow mein
Wednesday - chicken nuggets, cheesy vegetables, peaches
Thursday - spaghetti
Friday - Valentine's banquet at church
Saturday - taco pizza
Sunday - BBQ chicken wings

* MOPS on Tuesday
* V-Day banquet at church Friday night
* Hannah's birthday party with family on Saturday
* Hannah's birthday/Valentine's Day on Sunday

3 things I'm thankful for today:
* All the big-boy things Eli's been helping with lately: not just getting my water bottle for me but filling it for me all by himself, helping rinse the dishes, and taking pot loads of dirty laundry upstairs to the laundry shoot
* Somewhat decent sleep the last two nights!
* 3 delicious smelling babies after having baths last night =)

Join me with your weekly plans!
