Sweet Moments, Spring Plans and The Aprons & Pearls Linkup

Spring fever has hit our house, big time. The children are itching to get outside and play more, though it is cool enough out that they do not stay long.

Pollen is also in the air…our youngest, D, and I are really feeling it. I have been diffusing lemon, lavender, and rosalina oils to help.

I have shared before about how the children initiating us reminds me of how we are to imitate our Heavenly Father, and the sense of responsibility that it brings because we are setting the example for them.

Yesterday I had another of those moments.

D came to me bringing pretend food to feed me. He set it down, folded his hands, and tried to say pray. Hormonal pregnant mama might have cried some tears of joy/pride…

They are watching, I think more than we realize. Faith at home is so important!

L, our girlie, is loving the flowers blooming (okay, mostly dandelions, but they are still flowers!). She loves picking them for people. “Picking flowers for people is my way to say ‘I love you'”.  I have several smaller flowers pressing in my Bible now.

Last week I shared our Spring Bucket List. Just some ways that I want to be intentional about making memories, and opening the door for teachable moments.

I also shared about our Intentional Easter Traditions.

The seeds that we started last week are sprouting, so thoughts are turning to our garden once again. Hubby is going to redo our raised beds soon. The children are enjoying watching our plants grow.

Still working on a few posts, some research heavy pieces that are not moving as fast as I would like! The last two weeks I have managed to get out more posts than usual, but sleep has suffered…the children being sinus-y with allergies has not helped either.

All of that to say I am slowing down just a bit, focusing on trying to get to bed earlier instead of staying up late to blog.

On to the linkup!

  1. What a wonderful and terrifying responsibility God has given us when it comes to discipling our children and others! Or, at least, it would be terrifying if we didn’t know that the One who called us is also faithful to help us and work in their hearts! Easter blessings!

  2. Eucalyptus is awesome for allergies. You can diffuse it or pop it on hankie or something. Do you get it over there?

    1. We do, but I can’t use it around the kids under 6. I think it’s also one that I am supposed to avoid while pregnant. Peppermint oil is also useful, but I can’t use it around the kids.
