The Walnut Acre Daily - Weekend Wrap Up and Monday Fun

Words to Live By

1 John 4:9

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 

Books We Enjoyed Today

I read the first book with Austin and Amanda this evening and we also read Proverbs 14. The second book is the book I am reading.

In the Kitchen

Today was a simple day in the kitchen - toast, fruit and yogurt for breakfast, and sandwiches, fruit and cake for lunch. For dinner this evening Austin fried hamburgers and made a potato casserole. 

Around the House

I had a meeting this morning with one of the kid's social worker and we had more kids here than usual today so I really didn't get a lot of housework done.

Austin ran the reloaded and ran the dishwasher twice, and did the evening cleanup in the living room, playroom and upstairs bathroom. 

Amanda cleaned up the kitchen after dinner, did quite a bit of laundry and did the evening cleanup in the mudroom and downstairs bathroom. 

We Are Going

Doug went with Austin and Michael to their weekly Scout meeting this evening.

Weekend Wrap Up

Here are some pictures of what Doug, Michael and I spent most of Saturday doing. We brought an old playhouse that was being used a storage shed from the rental property over to our back yard to use as a chicken coop. It was a long hard job but so satisfying to see it finished. 

Doug pulled the playhouse away from where it was setting so he could load it better and Michael was afraid it was going to fall over. 

Sunday Doug and I taught Pre-K children's church. They made these pig crafts and then we watched the story of the Prodigal Son and they looked for the pigs in the story. We also talked about how God wants us even when we make mistakes. We just have to say we're sorry and try again. It was a fun morning with a sweet group of kids.

  1. I love the playhouse/coop. It's a fabulous idea. Wow! I also think Michael looks adorable with his hands over his eyes. Poor kid! His smile is even better though.
