Monday Monday

Here we are back to another Monday.  I am thankful that the sun is not out today, because it means that I have the chance to drop by and say "hello!" to all of you. 
Hannah and I have been making our way through the book of Genesis ala FIAR style.  Though it's more of a three in a row, which I should have known as that has been our MO for quite some time.  We have studied the tower of Babel, Noah and most recently the call of Abram, which we continue this week.  I'm super excited to start incorporating the Hands-On Bible with our studies.  It has turned more into a Bible study with object lessons than I had thought it would, but I think it's working well for us.  Hannah is eating up most anything related to sharks lately, books, videos, you name it.  We're also doing the summer reading program at the library, where she has earned lots of trinkets so far and a free bowling game for non-fiction books.  
Still not making any real headway towards reading, but I figure that it will happen when it happens.  Hoping all the reading we're doing this summer will help her out with that.
I'm contemplating offering an early elementary Bible study this fall, if things for CBS don't work out as hoped.  I'm currently looking into a Thursday class on Acts, but their first grade class is full. So, we're on the waiting list.  And the Tuesday one we had planned to go to just did not work into our schedule at this point so I gave up our spots for others to take that will definitely be able to attend.  
That's our homeschool info for the past couple of months.  I'm enjoying doing class in the summer, it helps keep the boredom away and I don't have any stress about needing to get things done in a specific time period, which is definitely a blessing.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#
