just another manic monday...

25 August 2008

well, sort of.
today was the first day of school for the kids!

i am doing only part time right now, so i got done about noon, which i must admit was kind of nice! haha. :) i am teaching little 1st and 2nd graders, and they are CUTE! i had fun getting to know them and doing some fun activities with them today.

this weekend we continued our crafty streak by making more frames, and helping amindia make this awesomely cute french memo board! here, take a look...
this weekend's crafty project...
(for those of you that don't know what a french memo board is, you can hang notes or pictures from it. we made it by covering a cheap bulletin board with batting, fabric, ribbon and buttons.) :)

here are the frames kelly and i made. (mine's the one that's black and pink).
frames, take 2

we've really enjoyed making them. if anyone is interested in ordering one, shoot me an email and we'd be happy to make one for you! :)

nothing much new besides that here. ben is still gone, and we are hoping the next few days go quickly so he can be home again! although it won't be for very long.... :/ i am also hoping to start doing a bible study with these girls, so you can pray about all of that if you think about it. thank you, friends! hope y'all had a nice weekend! :)

Hey Kristi -

Your frames look great! I'm glad that you are back at work again -first and second graders are the sweetest. It will help the time to pass by quickly. I will be thinking about you and praying for you guys!

Cute stuff, Kristi! As far as a Bible study goes, I'm a huge fan of Beth Moore. Definitely a little more involved, but so good! I'm in a group starting her new "Steppin' Up" series through the Psalms. Another good one we looked at was called "No Other Gods" by Kelly Minter. Hope something works out for you girls!
