Yesterday was a perfect Labor Day. Swimming. Ribs. Deviled Eggs. And nothing on the agenda. All Labor Days should be like that.

This week, we're going to attempt a sharper focus on Patience, our fruit of the Spirit for the week. While last week - the first week of school - helped us exercise some practice in that area, we didn't focus on the spiritual perspective of it. For this, I'm using the Kids of Integrity (link on Tuesday activities above) website, which is fabulous. Their plan is a little more in-depth than my 2 and 5 year old can go right now, but we'll be at least talking about it, reminding each other to be patient with one another (because that shows love), and completing some the appropriate hands on activities, like the Patience Jar. 

Btw, I thought I'd mention a $5 little book I've been using for making school lunches. I bought it from Kohl's a few years ago but have seen a version of it on Amazon. The recipes are simple to make, keeps lunch exciting, and my daughter likes about 80% of what's been produced from it. I let her go through the book and mark the recipes that sounded good to her, and those are the ones we've been trying first.
