Goodness, time sure flies by quickly when school starts. Five day a week schedule again is just flying by. Homeschooling is a blessing in so many ways for our family. We don't have to worry when we get a colds. We are busy with regular chores and activities during the normal school year. My family is looking forward to our vacation next month though to Disneyland. Our passes do not expire until the day we leave to come home from our trip.
Well, after 8 months of waiting for a car, we found one last week. A super nice used 2011 Kia Soul with lots of upgrades. My kids love this car and so do I. It's nice to be driving a really safe car (tons of safety features). I don't have to worry about the car breaking down. Used is the best way to go. The motor is already broken in and if there were going to be any problems it would have happened when there were few miles on it. My car only has about 21,365 miles on it.
The thing that is really great is the blue tooth program on the car. The car answers the phone via speakers in the car. No ear piece. I praise God for showing us which car to purchase. Here are a few photos on my NEW car. Enjoy!
With my nice new sewing machine, I have made a nice Bible bag for my son. It actually is a Christmas present. I think he will enjoy having a place to keep his bible in one place. Sometimes he has to search the house for where he left it last.
All the material that I sew with is found at my local thrift store. Why pay full price when you can find it for less. Using the money that God gives my family wisely is very important.
Hope you like the idea of this little bag. It was simple to make. Surf the internet for FREE patterns. That is where I found this one.
Well, today is back to school for our family. One thing different we are going is walking three times a week. My daughter is in 6th grade and we need to continue walking. We homeschool and it is started on the right foot. Hoping your Labor Day is a great one.
