Last week was an incredibly busy week with band, gymnastics, Daddy daughter dance, baking/cooking, soap making, and gardening. Our garden was somewhat of a disappointment this summer since many days were 100 degrees or more. However, we had a pretty decent harvest of potatoes and jalapenos just last week. Surprising since we had already had 2 freezes. The kids had a ton of fun digging in the dirt and getting all the potatoes out.
Last week, also being the first week of Advent, we started some new traditions, which I mentioned in our last blog. We have had fun bringing out one item at a time and saying prayers and singing around the Advent wreath.
We are wrapping up our last 2 weeks of school and are looking forward to a little vacation time. We have learned so much this 1st semester and are continuing to trust in God that we are doing the right thing for our kids.
Have a good week and God bless.
