toys from nicaraguaThis week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…

I’m so happy my baby sister is finally home! I’ve been so blessed by seeing her love for the gospel increase, and there’s been a heck of a lot of family time this week. I even slept over one night (with the girls), so I can wake up my sister the way I used to in the good ol’ days! She wrote this letter to herself, and again, my heart is deeply encouraged by how my sister has grown in her knowledge of grace and the gospel. There is much to be learned from her.

Last Saturday’s #dancingman party with the Dance Free Movement was so freakin’ fun! I could have danced the whole night away, but we had 4 children to pick up and get to bed, so we called it quits at 10:30pm (we got to bed at 12:30am, so that’s pretty wild in our book).

I’m so excited about this colorful basket bell toys my sister brought home for me from Nicaragua!

Love this jumpsuit, but hate the slit in the back.  Argh!

I’d like to make this burger. It’s a simple recipe, but it seems the addition of fish sauce may add some depth to it.

Ben ordered me Saturate by Jeff Vanderstelt. He’s listening to the audio version, and he knows I still love having the actual book in my hand.

This Instagram post by Jess Connolly really resonated with my heart… “This is it. This is life. One shot. To worship and love and laugh and be poured out for the Kingdom.”

I think vintage 1970’s necklace is pretty.

The two big girls had their second piano recital for the year and they nailed their pieces. They have a theatre performance this week, and we are almost at the end of the school year and ready to chill out for a bit.

Thankful for the reminder that God loves me with no strings attached. I need to remember to respond with grace when my children mess up, just as God does the same with me.

    I bought the jumpsuit on super sale and had enough room to sew a small blue button to hold the slit closed. You can’t tell that it’s not designed that way and I love it so much more 🙂

  • Catherine says:

    I’ve bought things like that jumpsuit before and either added a hook and eye mid way down where my bra sits or a zipper. i really don’t understand that style. is it another one to not wear a bra with? it looks nice but so not practical!

  • Patty says:

    That jumpsuit u mentioned is so your style, why not refashion that slit with some lace, or old doilies, maybe striped seersucker type fabric? LOVE your BLOG. the mom struggle is real. Thank you for being brave enough to share your journey! God Bless.

  • I albo think It is not practical but colourful.
