Weekends are for forts, friends, food, and fur (among other things that don’t start with F)

The weekend began with some dragon slaying!  The boys have been learning what it means to slay dragons (distractions, poor behavior choices, and difficult events) in our everyday life.  This particular night dad helped them to create a game around the dragons that they have learned about so far.

Saturday began with a variety of tasks, chores, and church and schoolwork.  Science experiments are always more fun that reading, writing, and working math problems….at least for this crew.

Then it was time for friends and fort building!!  Even better than science experiments!

We are so blessed and thankful for such a wonderful view in our backyard!  Every day I am grateful for how God brought us here to such a beautiful riverfront right in the city limits (rather a small city).

The weekend was also filled with yummy food.

I have re-established a relationship with a tool that I often disparaged and swore I would never use again.  Thanks to my wonderful girlfriends who gifted me a crockpot on my birthday.  I had so many failures years and years ago with crockpot meals that when mine broke (8 years ago) I never wanted to replace it.  I have tried new recipes and have been pleasantly surprised.  This past week I used it four days in a row with wonderful and pleasing results!  That is chicken taco filling  in there…Yum!!

We are still working hard in introducing our two bunnies who share your home.  We are determined to get them through this and become friends.  From my reading it will take work and time.  Dedication and perseverance…..now that’s a lesson we could all use.

They look like they are being friends here, but it was just a the little guy enjoying some petting from his people that relaxed him. 100_4899

I also made a quick trip and scored a couple of finds for 75% off!  Yay!

We had a fun and productive weekend.

I hope yours was too!
