We attended the 8 o'clock service that day as we usually do every week. All four of the older kids sat and listened intently through the whole service as Mr. Richardson is a very engaging story teller. As we were ready to leave Dawn wanted to go past the book table where he had his books and DVD's. She asked me for one of each! We settled for two since I had one already on my Nook that she could read. She stood asking questions and finding out more from Mr. Richardson as she had him sign the books and introduced herself.
The next week, for her extra reading time at school she brought his book "Eternity in Their Hearts" to have at her desk to read. The week before as a birthday gift, she had used a gift card at JoAnn's and bought some clay to craft with. As the week progressed, I made my way downstairs to see what she was up to. There in a used shoe box she had constructed a jungle village with all kinds of details. I wish it was easier to see all of the detail of her creation in this picture. It is awesome!

Today is moving a little slower and I am excited to get to the cleaning up and organizing done so I can work on some of my afghan. I spent a lot of time on vacation knitting and reading which I love both but don't have a lot of extra time to do while at home in the middle of the rest of our lives! I want to get finished with this afghan because it is a really great pattern. I am never bored because there are so many stitches and seven different colors. There are 152 rows that you repeat three times and for me there are 2 down and 1 more round to go! That means I am 2/3 of the way done. I am excited too because as David says, you make some great things, are WE ever going to keep any of them, or are you going to give them ALL away! This one is a big project that WE are going to keep! Hopefully not too far down the road, I can post pictures and move on to the next great project!
