This week, I am thankful for being able to stay home and homeschool my children.
I am also thankful that I am going to be reviewing again for the Schoolhouse Review Crew in 2016.
I am thankful for the children I care for each Wednesday evening in the church nursery.
I am thankful for having the ability to read the Bible each evening with my family.
I am thankful for everything!
Time for another menu plan. The week before Thanksgiving. And another bonus, it is getting cooler and I love to make soups and chilis.
Monday ~ Homemade chicken pot pie (the crust is not homemade)
Tuesday ~ Chili
Wednesday ~ Lentil tacos
Thursday ~ Lasagna
Friday ~ Probably leftovers
Saturday ~ It's going to be cool, so I will probably make chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese.

We wanted to walk on the little nature trail at the park (around 3,200 feet). We started, but around the 2,200 foot marker, we encountered a big puddle. We managed to hike up our pants and wade through the puddle and make it through, but that is where we encountered an army of mosquitoes. So, as I was sitting at the park watching my children play and have fun, I was still angry about the mosquitoes and wondering why God would create something like that.
I've thought about it and I realize God would not create something unless it serves a purpose. So, today, I am thankful for the mosquitoes that God created.
I do have more to be thankful for and I'll list those below:
I am thankful for this week. Even though it rained Monday, the rest of the week was beautiful.
I am thankful for all of my children the Lord has given to me. Even though they may fight at times, I love them all.
I am thankful for all of God's creatures. Even though some are pests (mosquitoes), I am thankful God has the wisdom to know what the earth needs.
I am thankful for good health for my family and me. My husband was in the hospital in June for two weeks, but praise to God for healing him.
I am thankful that I am able to stay home and take care of and school my children. Although there have been many "bad" days and I would have loved to just sent them to school for the day, the "good" days make it worth it in the end.
I am thankful for a roof over our heads and food on the table. Not everyone is able to have these two things that some of us take for granted every day.
I am thankful for my Lord. He is always there when I need Him. He has never left me, even when everyone else has left me, He is always there for me. He loves me and I love Him!
My plan for this week:
Monday ~ Cube steak with gravy and onions, mashed potatoes, other veggies
Tuesday~ Copycat Chick Fil A chicken nuggets, waffle fries, veggie
Wednesday ~ Spaghetti and salad
Thursday ~ Breakfast for supper (eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, pancakes)
Friday ~ Boys will be camping, girls will probably eat pizza
Saturday ~ ????
