In my life this week…
Last week we spent five days at our denominational Youth Camp. I said that to say this: We are still recovering. At least I am.
On Monday we did EIGHT loads of laundry. And ran to the grocery store. And made homemade pizza. Oh, and made a fresh blueberry pie, too!
The rest of the week has been a bit of a blur. Every day I vow to get the kitchen work caught up, but I’m thinking the dishes move themselves to the sink in the night. Every single day when I wake up, there are still dirty dishes in the sink! Today I
may MUST get to the bottom of the kitchen sink!
My favorite thing this week was…
Weston has been daydreaming over tractors, balers, fences, and such in a Mennonite catalog that we receive. On Wednesday we stopped at a tractor supply store to take a look at their farm toys. Weston had so much fun looking at all the toy tractors and accessories–actually, I think he must have requested one of everything! We’re still holding out for the better quality toys we found in the catalog, but it made me happy to see his excitement and glowing face.
Things I’m working on…
I’ve been working hard at cleaning and reorganizing this week. And really, I’ve made a lot of progress. Just don’t look at the kitchen sink.
I’m also teaching Kaylee how to sew. Over the last few days, we have worked on four different skirts. None are completely finished yet, but we’re planning to get them done before Sunday.
Questions/thoughts I have…
It is truly a blessing to have a safe, spiritual place for our children to attend Youth Camp. I find camp season to be almost overwhelming at times, but it is worth every effort to get our family there.

“Discipling our children is not about teaching them to behave in a way that won’t embarrass us. We’re working toward something much more important than that. We’re actually raising our children with a view toward leading them to trust and to follow Christ.”
