At The Parsonage – Spring is Here

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

So it’s Spring. Which because we’ve had such an incredibly warm Winter, I have to say, is kind of like “oh yeah, it’s official now.” I have come to appreciate this season more, living where Winter is actually hard, harsh and long. Spring is welcomed and long for in the way I long for Fall after a hot Summer. In Texas Winter is cool then suddenly it’s hot and that’s Spring. I always thought this one just blended into Summer, like you have really warm Sp-ummer then third level of hades hot Summer.

Anyway, you’re welcome for all that. It’s Spring here. It made me happy when I opened the Easter box my mom sends every year filled with Springy things and those beautiful WHITE Easter dresses and handsome new spiffs for the boys.

I’ve even taken a few minutes to pretty the house for Spring. Aren’t tulips lovely?

The kids home in the morning have been wanting  to do more crafts lately. I dug up some for Spring. Brown chicks because I couldn’t find the yellow paint.

Perfectly Spring.

Esther saw the Robin foot print one and has been begging to do this for a week now. The thought of painting feet gave me serious pause but I relented and was organized enough for it to go quickly and easily enough.

So far, Spring here has been cool and rainy with the occasional warm and sunny day. Nice but keeps you on your toes. Don’t put the coats away just yet kiddies!

A Book and a Craft

I really like the idea of a Book and a Craft.  Last Fall we decorated our front window with this mural so I thought it would fit very nicely with this new book we got for Fall and love. It’s been on my Wish List (as Fletcher and the Falling Leaves) for a couple years so when I saw it in Clara’s Scholastic book order form for way cheap I jumped on it.

Jesus Tree Lessons I

Sunday, February 24th, 2013

 

“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that comes from God.”

Through Lent I’m using a Jesus Tree with the kiddos for daily lessons. I haven’t had much to go on except the daily reading and some coloring sheets which some days is enough, but since Lily loves doing crafts I’ve been coming up with those as well to accompany each lesson.

Our Feast of St. Valentine

Sunday, February 17th, 2013

No one is surprised that I’m just getting around to Valentine’s Day I’m sure! I wanted to get this here to help me remember what we did and so I’d know what not to do next year. We made cards for our Grandparents, something I want to do every year, but run out of time and energy and since they’ve already gotten them (I hope!) I can show and tell them.

Cute and easy!
