Last weekend, my family visited our favorite pumpkin patch. The weather was perfect for parading among the paths to find the perfect pumpkins. My kids get pretty serious about which pumpkins to bring home with us. It was such a joy to see there smiling face and learn their finally determining factors of their chosen gourds.
A few weeks ago, my family and I visited the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival. It was celebrating its 22nd year this Autumn. We’ve visited every year for the last six! It’s always fun to see all the animals, crafts, and happy people when we go.
Homeschooling continues to grow in popularity, as many people have become disenchanted with the school system. Many parents have taken the education of their children into their own hands and personalized the whole experience. Homeschooling has many unique benefits for both the parent and the child. Plus, it takes place in an environment that is safe and non-threatening for the child.
Jesus Always 365 Devotions for Kids by Sarah Young is geared toward boys and girls ages 8-12 years old. This devotion is different than most as it is written in a way as if God is speaking to the reader directly. The author explains her writing style and sticking as close to scripture as possible. So instead of the common use of He, words are used such as I, Me, My, and Mine as Jesus. When speaking to the reader the word you and your are used. It’s very personal and it’s one of my favorite writing styles.
My family and I are huge fans of Label Daddy labels. Their labels have helped prevent many of our important things from getting lost. If our items do become misplaced, we can rest at ease knowing each item near and dear to us are labeled in such a way that they’d likely be returned to us. I favor greatly that with these custom labels I can provide as much or as little return information as I feel comfortable sharing.
Oh, Autumn how I’ve missed you! I adore everything about this season (especially, the cooler temperatures). The leaves around our area are changing colors of red, orange, and yellow. It’s a beautiful and welcome treat for the eyes this season.
