Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

On the Home Front - August 20

A peek through my window… S – 101 S – 100 M – 95 T – 99 W – 102
I’m hoping October gets here quickly!

What’s going on this week… football and soccer. The boys have drs. appts. on Monday and they will get out of school early. I don’t like to schedule it that way, but with specialists, you take what they give you!

What “the boys” are doing…wow, 7th grade looks like it is going to be “rigorous”, that’s all I can say! We have family math homework this weekend (I sure hope I know how to do it!) M has a scrimmage Sat. morning and L. has one Sunday night.

On my mind… teaching is still on mind. I’m wondering if anything will work out this year or I have to wait til next.

On my bedside table… Wild Things, The Art of Nurturing Boys

I am richly blessed… Both boys have to be at school at the same time so they can ride the bus together or if I take them, it works out perfectly. We’re blessed with a great school system and good first two days for both boys.

I’m praying for… L’s hand is badly bruised from being kicked with a cleat (he was the ball holder). I’m praying it gets better quickly and for an injury free year.

Our home… I still haven’t unpacked my carry-on from vacation. I promise as soon as I post this, I’m going to do it AND clean the bathroom!

Menu planning… I’m going to get an already cooked chicken at Walmart and use it for a casserole tonight and sandwiches tomorrow. It is soooo hot that I’m going to have to change up some menu plans to not use the oven this week (again!)

A photo or two…
