Monday Meanderings - Oct. 17

Bible Study...  Week 4 lessons of No Other Gods,

Memory Verse...  Philippians 4:8
"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...
♥ Respect his need to do house projects after he gets home from work, and happily take care of kids so he can do so.

Train Them Up...
* AWANA verses.
* Homework for Eli.
* Letter practice with Hannah.
* Sleepover reward.  The kids FINALLY completed their staying-in-bed chart and have earned a sleepover for next weekend.  And I'm HAPPY to say this whole process definitely broke the regular behavior of them constantly getting out of bed every night.  Hopefully it'll stay that way.

Personal Goals...
- Exercise 3x this week
- Be mindful of TV watching (or lack of)
- Limited FB.  Dang, it's so bad again.

New Habit of the Month...  {october} Rise early. 30 minutes is too short but 45 minutes of quiet time is just about perfect.

MUST Do... 
* The boys' clothes are packed away. Now time to tackle some 3T girls stuff.
* Photos to CD and delivered this week
* Photo prep for Thursday and Saturday shoots.
* Purchase baby shower present
* Tidy up house
* Paint tape off in play room

Zone(s)... fridge door (working on decluttering the papers and have a new system in place!)

Menu - TBD
M - shtuff
T - taco soup
W - 
Th - (Bible study night)
F - fair @ school
S - (Paul & Holly here)
Su -

* Early out of school on Wednesday.
* Preschool parent-teacher conferences on Thursday. Excited to hear how Hannah is doing!
* Photoshoot Thursday morning
* Hair cut Friday morning! Chopped!!
* Church baby shower Saturday morning
* Paul and Holly and Claire coming Saturday afternoon, followed by their photoshoot!

3 things I'm thankful for today...
1. Encouraging words from friends.  They are so kind.
2. Hard-working hubby.  Busy getting some house updates in prep for winter coming!
3. Hot chocolate and slippers.
