Today our oldest turns six! I cannot believe it has gone by so fast. It seems like just yesterday we were on our way to the hospital to have him.
It has been a busy week.
I did not accomplish all the I wanted to last week, but I did get a lot done while my mom and sister were up.
This past weekend a stomach bug hit our house. The youngest puked in the am, which is not at all like him. Our oldest, B, could not seem to keep anything down most of the day. Then girlie got it. I ran out for some grape juice because I have heard it keeps others from getting sick and helps recovery with stomach bugs. I gave everyone a big cup and it seems to have worked. No one puked after we had it. I have been giving everyone a big glass of it just to make sure we are all good. I went with white grape because it is one that does not lead to other stomach issues that too much of other juices can cause.
Some extra laundry and cleaning up. We stayed in from church Sunday since it was within 24 hours of them being sick.
Last week brought some nice weather that allowed me to hang clothes out on the line. I got six loads of laundry done Friday. Today is supposed to be nice so I washed up several loads to hang on the line.
It is looking like we will not get any snow this year, which makes me sad. I love snow, and our oldest really enjoyed it last year. It was nice to finally have someone to play in the snow with.
I am looking forward to March. Hubby will be belt testing to move to the advanced class, so I will be able to rejoin the beginner krav maga class. Much is changed from what hubby has told me, so I am glad to still be a white belt.
We will be dedicating our two youngest boys to the Lord in church Sunday. We did our oldest two children at our former church, and we were in between churches when we had our third. I am trying to pick verses for them to use during the dedication.
Then, after church, at the usual Sunday potluck we will have a party for our oldest since everyone will be up anyway.
There will be some party prep going on this week. I think I am taking taco stuff for the potluck/party.
Today is the last official storytime for our oldest! This session actually ends on his birthday.
Last week I shared about the Love Nudge App. It has really been good to see what hubby’s love languages are, and how he is feeling. I would highly recommend it.
There have been some wonderful, teachable moments with the children lately that I hope to write about soon.
What is going on in your world? Is spring just around the corner?
On to the linkup!
The Aprons & Pearls Link-up
“If you want to experience consistent victory and see it played out in the atmosphere of your home, continually look for areas in which the Holy Spirit is leading to greater obedience, and ask God what your part is in making that a reality.
This is a Christ-based weekly link-up to encourage others in their walks, and help Christian bloggers get their work out there.
Leave links to posts that are:
Homemaking/natural living/parenting/Christian walk related.
This could be natural living posts, recipes, cleaning, parenting, devotions, lessons, homeschool, Christian living, mentoring, modesty, gardening, homemade, diy, marriage, relationships, frugality, etc.
- Link directly to your post (not to your homepage).
- Please, no marketing posts (Plexus, Jamberry, MLM Oils or the like). Affiliate links to relevant items okay.
- While I personally do not see anything wrong with a glass of wine every once in a while, please do not include alcoholic beverage recipes. It is a stumbling block to many, and I am not comfortable including them. They will be deleted.
- Feel free to include old posts that need some love, relevant link ups and giveaways.
- Leave as many as you like.
- Link back to the Aprons & Pearls Linkup, either using the button below or a text link on either your post, sidebar, or link party page.

The link-up will run Tuesday at 6am-Sunday at 5pm. Please come back through Sunday and check out some of the posts!
I have made a Pinterest Board for the posts that you link-up, feel free to send me a message over on pinterest to be added. You can click here to check out the board.
