We went to pick up our beef. Jeremiah usually goes and gets it himself, but we all went this time. I was hoping for some interesting pictures of the farm or the butcher. I only got this one of Jeremiah inside paying.
Larkin helping me make bread. I tried a new way of putting the cinnamon loaf together.
While Miah and Larkin were busy playing a sight word game printed from adrianbruce.com,
and playing a telling-time game,

"God has unleashed the floodgates for a blessing that you will cherish forever. Keep everything simple and easy so you can enjoy your little ones. If things start pressing and pushing, evaluate what is going on. If it is fear, snuggle up close to God and get His vision. If it is comparison to others, pull back and put your eyes on YOUR CHILD, get to know them, move forward bit-by-bit with what THEY NEED each day, and let the world go by…they WILL get there!" -Cindy Rushton
