Nothing new to report on the job front. We’ve sent the resumes out, but no action so far. After this Friday, we will have no more paychecks. Except for whatever Brian will get from unemployment. So things will start to get interesting very soon.
We shut off the sattelite on Monday. Goodbye Andy Griffith ~sniff sniff~ it’s been real!
The good thing about Brian being home all the time now is that we’ve had plenty of time to spend together as a family. The girls have definitely enjoyed spending more time with their dad.
We’ve played beauty salon.
We’ve practiced our skills at catching popcorn in our mouth. (Look at Buster – he’s all over those pieces that fall to the floor)
And we’ve been entertained with endless amounts of Kung Fu presentations!
And the best part of all is that last night I started a daily family devotion with the girls. My pastor sent me a great link. It’s a website called Wonderzone and it has a daily devotion that is in easy to understand language for kids. It was a huge success. The girls (even Hannah) were really into it and they both participated with lots of questions and comments.
When I told them about what we were going to start doing, Katie was of course thrilled. She got out a notebook and pen so she could take notes. She couldn’t wait.
Hannah’s response? “Do I have to?”
I said “Yes, you have to Hannah. You’ll like it. It will be fun” And it was. And she liked it.
At one point I decided to ask them some questions about what they had learned. The lesson was about God being the creator of everything. For example, he said the words “Let there be light.” and there was the sun…etc.
So, Hannah’s explanation for all of this was “We needed a sun. God said the word. We need candy, God said the word. We need puppies, God said the word.” It was pretty funny. We ended with prayer and Hannah must’ve been saying her own because when I was done praying, she kept her head bowed a few more seconds and then I heard her whisper “Bye, God.”
I think this no TV thing is going to be great for us. If I start to have Andy & Barney withdrawals, I’ll just go get some from the library!
