::Pretty Scribbles & Lemony Pleas::

A few tidbits from my life this week.


We just finished Book One of "Hero Tales" by Dave & Neta Jackson. We all love it. Each day we read a short biography of a godly Hero of the Faith. I am refreshed and amazed by the accounts of God's miraculous provision for men and women who trusted God implicitly while staring death in the face.

The kids have responded so well to this. How better to teach them to live and pray BIG than to read true stories about those who did just that.

This series has three or four books. I can't wait to begin the next one.

::Yummy Crystals::

Cae and I grew some Rock Candy this month. She says they were delicious. I think they looked like a gooey, purple mess. But they are beautiful. We peered at them under the microscope. Breath-taking.

Activity: Grow Crystals
Crystals grow in undisturbed spaces where mineral-filled liquid is present. This means that a sugar-water solution in a glass jar serves well as a make-shift "geode."
These are edible crystals: Rock candy.

Observe & Sketch the growth of your crystals

I have not seen my children since we said "Amen" after family worship this morning. They are out in the white: wet, cold and LOVING it! I, meanwhile, am in by the fire: dry, cozy and LOVING it!

::Lantern for Baby Charlotte::

A few years ago I made THIS.
I adapted it and made a lantern for a friend’s baby.
