Travel to Mesopotamia
















We are studying Mesopotamia. Today we wrote pictographs and cuneiform. It was fun, but we're glad we don't have to write that way all the time!

Weight Loss Check-In

I've lost one pound since last Monday, at least I think that's right. My scales are broken, so I've got to buy some new ones! Anyway, I have now lost a total of 5 lbs. I sure wish this weight would come off quicker, but, oh, well, at least it's moving in the right direction. LOL

Well, the rain is gone, but the water is still here. And you know what that means...puddles!

Rainy Day Fun
















We're scheduled for four consecutive days of rain. So it's time to break out all those indoor activities! Day One: Making playdough, baking it, and painting it.

My Little Guy Can Blend


Here's my little man reading Green Eggs and Ham. We love Dr. Seuss--he's great for beginning readers and old pros alike!

Weight Loss Check-In

I've lost two more pounds. YIPPEEE!!! That's a total of 4 lbs., so now I only have 26 more to go. Thanks again for your prayers. I know I haven't lost much, but I already feel so much better. I have so much more energy from eating right and exercising and treating my body as the temple it's supposed to be. Please pray that I will continue to keep it going...for some reason I seem to struggle when I get to the third or fourth week of a weight loss plan. I'm determined not to quit this time!

Reading and Snuggling


Two of my favorite things to do with my children are reading and snuggling. My dear, sweet husband actually took this picture secretly. But since I discovered it, I thought I'd share it with you all.

When Your Fat Pants Get Too Small

OK, there's NO pic for this one...I'm not gonna go there! Sorry to disappoint. LOL Seriously, though, I am asking my cyber friends to pray for me. Please pray that I will eat healthy and in moderation and exercise a minimum of 1 hour a day/4 days a week. I am starting tomorrow. I need to lose 30 lbs. I am struggling with this and have been for two years. But today I had to face a hard fact...even my "big" clothes are too small for me now. :( I'm sick of this, so I am going to do something about it. I am going to give my body to the Lord...no more cramming junk food, no more emotional eating, NO MORE!!! I mean it! God is my source of refuge, not the pint of Ben & Jerry's. I will post my weight loss each Monday. If I don't, girls, hold me accountable. PLEASE!

Romans 12:1 "Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God-this is your spiritual act of worship."
