The News Around Here and a 90 Day Bible Reading Update

The news around our house:

We experienced a cold front yesterday....It only got up to 91*!  It's been a hot summer here, but I'm trying not to complain because all too soon it will be cold, and I'm not a big fan of cold!

The Mr. and I just spent Wednesday night with 14 1st through 6th graders and had a ton of fun!!! It was a lot of work, but we really enjoyed it!

Most of the school books have arrived, and so I am up to my eyeballs in trying to figure out how to teach 2 kindergartners, a 2nd grader and a 4th grader and still have time for keeping the house somewhat clean, the laundry somewhat done, and putting a few meals on the table! :)

I am still slowly but surely working my way through the 90 Day Bible Reading.  I have decided it will probably be more like a 180 Day Bible Reading.  I am on Day 22.  I seem to get only about 1/2 of it completed each week, but I'm going to keep at it!

I was able to peel off some old wall paper border in our bathroom!  It took me a good two hours, but I was glad to finally be able to mark it off of  "The List!"

I can feel the newbie's first little tooth!  This makes me so very sad!  My little man is getting too big too fast!  He has also come up with this new face he makes when he's crying.  It is truly hilarious!  I must confess...the Mr. and I have been guilty of laughing at the poor little guy while he's crying!

We are "Celebrating Summer" every day with a little extra something.  We only have 16 days before we begin school!

I won something!!! I never win anything, but I put a comment on my favorite mommy author's blog so that I could have a chance to win, and I won TWO of her books (which have been on my wishlist for awhile)!  I will say it again ...if you are a mom, you need to visit Sally Clarkson's blog at  She is such an encouraging and inspiring person! (I really need her to just come live with me until my children are grown!)

The only other news I can think of for the day is that Miss M has volunteered me to marry Mr. G when he grows up because Miss E informed him that since he was so rude no little girl will ever want to marry him.  Of course, we have also all been informed by Miss E that this can only happen if Daddy dies first! Obviously, the Mr. and I need to explain the rules of marriage some time in the future! :)

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend looking for the little blessings God is pouring out!  I'm off to go enjoy mine!
