iSonto #38

This week we are thankful for the box of dress ups being put to good use. Here is Elnathan dressed up as, he informed me, a lady ready to go to work for the day at the church. I have been popping unused clothing and shoes in there for years with children in view.

We can also be thankful for some sunny winter days, Mercy learning to say her own name and "yes", cubbies being created all over the house, time in the garden before Dave went away for two weeks, and a visit we were able to make to see people in an aged care home.

Elnathan was still busy with all those bits of cloth from my scrap bag! You can also see a blue painted box which serves as a house. It seems to fill Nate's "love tank" to make things like this with him.

Natey's memory verse was still Psalm 1, which we say most nights at dinner.

Mercy was thrilled to paint with a sponge, thanks to Grandma.

From garden to tummies . . . we had broccoli steamed. It is a source of calcium, Vitamin C and A, and folate. 

A book we enjoyed together was The Natural History Book.

We often turn to this book to look up a plant or animal we have seen but cannot name. This week Nate asked me to read it to him and to talk about all the names of the rocks!

Encouragement, ideas and inspiration came from One Human Family by Carl Weiland, which presents the truth that how we view origins affects the way we view human beings from other cultures and "races".

they are growing so quickly! hm...sounds like Natey's love language might be quality time since he likes working on those projects with you! Enjoy every minute. Glad you are having a good winter...we are in the midst of a glorious HOT summer!! but we do need rain here in eastern New York state. Have a restful Sabbath.
