Monday Meanderings - Sept 8

A day late!! But still here! =)

Bible Study... just starting A Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George and Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl by Lysa TerKeurst. Plus I've been praying thru the Psalms each morning with the A.C.T.S. format and it's so fulfilling.

Memory Verse...  Philippians 4:8
"Finally, brothers and sisters, 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...
♥ It's a busy work week so be a helper and let him relax when home
♥ Organize and tidy the house. 

Train Them Up...
* Homework routine--math and spelling each night, without interruption-ha!
* Evening reading time--loving what we're reading right now and the kids are really into it. (a biography about missionary Amy Carmichael) 
* Hannah--we're dealing with selfishness right now
* Eli--quality time and conversation with him. 
* Carter--obedience and respecting other people's space
* Schedules -- continually choosing what to be involved in and what to pass. We're trying something new with gymnastics this year... picked the same day as AWANA and gonna try out having multiple things in one night vs having things multiple nights every week. We like to be home and stay home once kids are out of school for the day. 

Personal Goals...
* start a new book  =)

New Habit of the Month...  {september}
daytime routine and tackling household projects!

MUST Do... 
* possibly another tire repair
* purchase Bible study book

Zone(s)... playroom and living room

Menu - lots of new recipes this week!

M - chicken broccoli quinoa bake
T - meatless spinach lasagna (trying to incorporate at least 1 meatless meal each week)
W - sandwiches 
Th - one-skillet beans and rice
F - homecoming grillout
S - appetizer night - pimento dip, chicken fingers

* Bible study x2 this week!
* Helping at Eli's classroom Thursday afternoon -- his teacher was so EXCITED when I offered this
* Gymnastics starts on Wednesday
* Dinner with friends Wednesday night 
* Homecoming on Friday! Which means the ONE football game we attend for the year. (hehe) And other fun activities

3 things I'm thankful for today...
1. The calm after a storm. Figuratively speaking.
2. Relaxed days. Even with the kids gone at school, there is still much to get done during the day, and I'm so thankful that I can do this unhurried and stress-free.
3. Walking partners. I walk with friends a couple mornings a week, and it's multipurposeful and enjoyable. =)
