Last week, when I received my new Holy Simplicity Planner in the mail, I noticed it had an area to list 12 weekly goals in my mother's section. This prompted me to plan for a School Bucket List this year. Have you ever done one?
I've heard the rumbling of thunder in my head and had a few lightening strikes so far...
1.) Dinner Prep. Sally and Ester each will take one night a week to prepare a dinner. (I'm hoping this takes a load off of my busy schedule!)
2.) Religious art class. More of it this year!
3.) Spanish lessons. A "first" for us. I really love this program...
And the girls (recommended for kids in grade 2-8) are catching on easily. The teacher is very engaging and keeps things basic.
4.) A camping we will go!
My husband has been very busy. As he says, "Even though we cannot afford to buy it, I've been blessed with the gifts to build it."
After finishing building his new business display, he finished building his teardrop camper.
Each side has a door. One door has an a.c. unit attached. (It can be taken off to store.) The interior is wired and paneled. There is a bunk in which the baby can sleep. (Padded and gated of course.) There is only enough room for a queen mattress. (One adult and the three older kids will sleep in a tent.)
The galley is finished as well. It sports a kitchen light, a few pull out drawers, an ice chest, a small counter top, and a storage shelf across the top.
He built this completely on his own starting with just two wheels :)
So, God willing, we will be able to take our big family on some short trips across Texas this fall and winter.
Now, it is no party vessel like this one below...
...but I'm still actually excited to camp!
I saw this on Facebook and had a good laugh. Have any of you had a rough week?
Have a wonderful weekend!!
