Lately In Our Life
Well as usual last week was another busy one. We did shopping for our 4 Operation Christmas Child boxes and spent an afternoon with a bunch of homeschool families packing them. Not only did we pack the shoeboxes but we also spent time learning about a couple of the countries that the shoeboxes will be going to.
It was Gabe’s 7th birthday on Friday, I cannot believe that my baby is actually 7 already. Boy do the years fly by. This kiddo was so excited about his birthday he made sure to tell everyone he seen for the last 2 weeks. We don’t do regular birthday parties in our house anymore. Instead the birthday child gets the day off of their chores, plays extra video game time, chooses dinner, and chooses what we will have for dessert. Gabe choose a homemade cake with sprinkles, it was huge and turned out pretty good for the first layered cake I have made in many years.
Next week Thursday is Thanksgiving and we are spending it at my brother and sister in laws house with a ton of guests. We are doing our big menu planning and shopping, and doing a Thanksgiving unit study in our homeschool. It shall be a fun and busy week once again.
I haven’t had much time to read through this wonderful blogging book, but am still sharing it for you. If you are a blogger looking to make money from your blog, I highly recommend this book, How To Blog For Profit: Without Selling Your Soul. It is such a challenge to make money from your blog without spending way to much time doing it. This book will help you do just that!
