Fallball- Levi and Mandi are playing baseball and Dick is coaching both teams. We are at the ball field 5 or 6 days a week.
The Maker's Diet- I went on the Maker's Diet. The first three days were miserable. Once I passed that hurdle, I loved the results. Joint pain went away. I had much more energy and positive outlook on life. My skin cleared and no headaches. Now I am on a modified version of the diet and it seems to be a good balance for me.
I love seeing Mandi's toothless grin. She lost her top front tooth two days after she discovered it was loose. She is a determined girl.
Grace has braces. She is doing great for a girl with sensory integration issues.
For the first time since we started homeschooling, I have been writing lesson plans and chore plans for the kids. We have been accomplishing more school and more chores are getting done.
I discovered it is frugal to clean your house. We found the missing library book, several new socks, Mandi's missing favorite skort, shoes, and Olivia's favorite toys under Olivia's bed. Now I don't have to spend money to replace those items.
For the first time in my married life, I handed out candy on Halloween. I have never wanted to celebrate Halloween, but decided to embrace the opportunity to connect with the kids in my neighborhood. We gave out a Christian music cd, The Lads Band, to each family that came and had Christian music playing. It was really fun and I am looking forward to next year.
I walked 4 1/2 miles in one day. I heard my dad say that if you walked 3 miles, any stress you were feeling would go away. I was having some unexplained anxiety, so I thought I would try it. I decided to walk around the baseball field near my house. I walked what I thought was 3 miles, but it was really 4 1/2. I had a wonderful time with the Lord and most of the anxiety was lifted. God gave me these two verses to stand on;
The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me Gal. 2:20
God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love and of power and a sound mind. 2 Tim. 1:17
