I see that this week we are to include some bit of encouragement that has helped us this past week. I have not really had anything in the forefront during the week, but the verse that comes to mind as I am typing is "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." - Philippians 4:13
It is hard to fathom that February is about over. I am quite pleased with the progress I have made with 2 of my 3 goals this month.
I have exceeded my goal for the month. I am down 3 pounds this week. That makes it 5.5 pounds that I have lost so far this month. I have done this by making healthy eating choices and exercising 5 days this week.
I have not done near as well with reading to the girls this week. This definitely has not become a habit yet. At this point, I am thinking that I will include this goal as one of my three goals again next month. This week we read Harvey's Hideout by Russell Hoban , Peppe the Lamplighter by Elisa Bartone, and Donkey, Donkey by Roger Duvosin. My oldest girl also reads a lot on her own and they both listen to stories/books on CD. So I am not worried about a lack of hearing or reading good books, but there is just something extra special about reading together. It is a great way to spend quality time together, and it is fun to share the experience of a good book with your child(ren).
I am not finished with my recipe organization yet, but I am happy with my progress. I have put many more recipes in binders this week. I currently have three large binders with recipes. I am thinking I may need a fourth binder before I am done.
Have a wonderful weekend!
