This week we are thankful for the toys we have, including this dolly I played with as a child.

Elnathan was very happy to be able to go to playgroup this week, after missing it last week due to a cold. It is sweet the way they both stand at the gate, eager to go out. It is great to have the opportunity to go out and greet and pray for people in our community.

Nate also loved pretending to be an ambulance driver and coming up and asking if I was alright and if I wanted a "arm band" (known by others as a "band aid")! He would rush up to Mercy and say "oh the teeth" and try to stick his fingers in her mouth, imitating me trying to sooth her teething.

Natey's memory verse was "Let your conduct be without covetousness, be content with such things as you have" Hebrews 13: 5.

Mercy was
busy learning new words. At playgroup she went straight for the dolls and said "dolly". Here she is joining in with chalking.

From garden to tummies . . .  

Corn, tomatoes, carrots, basil, chives, parsley, potatoes, beets, beans, capsicum, and more were on the menu this week. It is the time of year when it becomes necessary to cook a lot just to get through all the produce, and we can be grateful for all the variety as we change seasons.

A book we enjoyed together was "Wow City", a picture book about a tiny girl who goes on an aeroplane to a city and says "Wow!" all the time.

Encouragement, ideas and inspiration came from "Homemaking" by J. R. Miller. Quiet reading with Nate was a rich time of inspiration for me as I read about cultivating the right spirit in our home. It was also wonderful to skim read "The Comforts of Home", which really encouraged me in my love for order and beauty.

One funny moment was Nate saying at a meal "Jesus takes our sins away". Mummy basked for a few minutes in having taught him something. Then he said "that's not good. Its not good to take things away". I didn't laugh at the time, but tried to explain that it is good to take away bad things!

Hans has the same difficulty, theologically speaking. He has always struggled with sharing, and the first time I talked about Jesus taking away our sins he was NOT interested. He got the look he always does when he doesn't want to share, and said that Jesus couldn't have his sins, as if they were some treasured prize! Ai, ai, I think he's starting to understand that it's a bit different. Especially when I realized that I could also explain it as double imputation (but not using that term for a 3yo!): Jesus taking away our bad sins that we don't want (he knows what sin is) and then Jesus giving us his good righteousness, so he understood that we got something even better in return!
