Betty Crocker Fun

We home school, but Box Tops products are still a vital part of our schooling.  Mainly because they are great products that we use to learn a few things. When MyBlogSpark offered me the chance to receive this:

 
I said, "YES!"
When the package arrived, there was a box of Betty Crocker family size milk chocolate brownies, iclips with cute cupcakes, two notepads, Box Top pencils, a neoprene lunch bag and a cupcake bag! 

 
I pulled out my trusty Baker's Edge pan and called in our budding cook.

She's got on her apron and she's ready to do some learning.

Learning to measure ingredients.

Cracking eggs. We crack eggs into a bowl in case any shells might fall in and then we don't have to pick them out of the batter.

Mixing is a very important skill. 

Almost as important as tasting.* 

MMMM brownies!

They get a big thumbs up.  

I do collect Box Tops and pass them along to friends who have children in public schools.  According to the Box Tops Website, the program is available to home school associations with 15 or more students.  

The winner of the Giveaway is Kelly!  Thanks for reading!!

The Bottom of the Pool by Andy Andrews

Y'all know that I'm a big Andy Andrews fan, so I was very excited to read his latest, The Bottom of the Pool. The best way that I can describe this book is like sitting down with your friend and they remind you how it is. It's not like Andy is hawking some secret voodoo send me $5 and you'll get $5000 in the mail next week black magic. He's sharing the truth. And the truth is that if you're dealing with an obstacle in your life, there's a big possibility that you're thinking about it all wrong.

This relatively quick read is jam-packed full of good stuff. There are interesting stories about historical figures but the main story that runs throughout the book is one of a childhood friend. Andy's friend did something extraordinary one summer afternoon that illustrates how we can break out of cycles hold us back from achieving what we are created to do. Without telling you exactly what Andy has to share in this book, it might feel like it's some mag…

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.
