Monday Meanderings - Jun. 13

Summer is busy and flying by and I'm not always on here every week, but I am this week, so here we go...

Bible Study... Genesis-whatever-I'm-at... need to get back to it. Haven't done ANY reading since before our vacations!

Memory Verse... 1 Peter 3:3-4
"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight."

Husband Encouragement...
♥ Be on his side.
♥ Communication.
♥ Stay home more.
♥ Make THE pie.

Train Them Up...
* Reading time with Eli
* Keep to morning routine.
* Finish the last activity for our lapbook.

Personal Goals...
* Run every day, day off on Thursday, and include one 4-mile run in sometime.
* Read {at least} one chapter in marriage book.

New Habit of the Month...  {JUNE} Get up before kids.

MUST Do...
* Schedule appointments for Eli.
* See about painting our bedroom before next week??
* Hem curtains so I can get my sewing machine put AWAY!!
* Install curtain hooks for "tie backs".
* Charge camera for photoshoot Tuesday.
* Browse senior pics for photoshoot ideas, although I already have several poses in mind for each of the kids.
* Ask about desk.
* MOW.
* Get 4th of July invites out.
* Get beach pics available on blog.

Zone(s)... dining room. Need to get sewing stuff all put away so it's not on the table anymore! But otherwise, the entire house needs post-vacation work!

T - grilled pork chops with applesauce, green beans
W - spaghetti, garlic bread
Th - chicken, garlic rice, peaches
S - pizza

* I'm doing a sort-of big photoshoot on Tuesday.  My friend Nikki is having me photograph three, maybe four if time permits, of her children as well as a group shot of all five of them. I already did Olivea's pictures, you can see them HERE. I'm nervous but pretty excited!! Hopefully the weather will be okay???
* Friday my mom is coming and we're going to spend some time exploring our local sites!
* Saturday morning is my first 5K race!  Nervous but I think it will go just fine! Excited to have it over with so I can stop thinking about it!
* Sunday is our town's big BBQ for Father's Day and my parents are going to come for that since Kevin has to work. Should be a fun time--hopefully it's nice weather this year!

3 things I'm thankful for today...
1. A fun mini-vacation with Kevin's family to Amana Colonies, Iowa.
2. A visit with my old college roomie and still great friend, Gina!!!
3. Some good conversations with my hubby over the weekend.

My SIL and I were just talking about doing a 5K. She just started running and is looking to it as a goal to motivate her to stick with it. I have ran several. I used to do it a lot. I love them. Anyway, I think it great that you are going to run one. Have fun.
