Ten and Win

Hey, I wanted to let you all know that you can still enter to win $20,000. You can enter until November 13th at TenandWin.com. You can listen to the story of why Mr. Rundus is giving away $20,000 and what you must do to win it. You have to be able to say the 10 commandments in order from memory within 20 seconds. He also gives some finger motions to help you remember them in order. The original end date for this was October 26th, but his wife had an emergency appendectomy that morning. So learn the Ten Commandments, commit them to memory, enter to win, and good luck God’s blessings on you all!

We enjoy reading. My kids and I read together for a while every day. We read the Bible daily as a family. My husband and I read at night. All that to say, we read a lot! So we decided to make some bookmarks as a craft project that we could all do together. We cut strips of poster board and painted, glued, glittered, and wrapped them up. Then we punched a hole with a hole punch and ran ribbon through the top. Here are some of them.


This week for Bible we are reading about how the Israelites crossed the Red Sea and how the Egyptians didn’t cross the Red Sea…

So we made a little chariot from a half gallon milk carton and some pipe cleaners. I had to remember to buy a half gallon because I don’t have much use for a half gallon normally since we go through 5-6 gallons of milk each week. Baby boy will start drinking milk in a week or so and I am sure we will go through more then. Here is our chariot. Just for the record-I am pretty sure that the Egyptians did NOT have unicorns, but I was the first horse looking thing I found this morning.

Baby boy has learned a new trick- climbing the walls! I know I am going to have to start putting pants on him more often as it is getting cool out, but it is sooooooooooooooooo difficult to get the pants on him. His little thighs and legs are so chunky that I can barely get 18 mos pants on him. Then the 18 mos pants are much too long. I know that the cloth diapers don’t help, but I really do prefer them. And with the health risks of disposables, don’t think I will be switching anytime soon.

And up next is half-pint for her share of the blog time. She colored a beautiful picture of Cinderella and her prince today. Yes, those are the doors to the “rainy day” house  (on the right of the picture) that probably needs to be put back in hiding. The rain is still here, but the girl’s interest in the house is not. I need to go now. Half-pint wants me to read a book to her about Cordur”boy” before her nap time. 🙂

Jesus calms the storm

22One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s go over to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and set out. 23As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger.

 24The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”

   He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. 25“Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples.
      In fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.”

Luke 8:22-25

This is the Bible story we are studying this week. We usually act them out, but this week we made a craft to tell the story. I think that this helps the kids remember the stories much more than just hearing them read.

Here is my little over achiever’s boat. I do not know where she learned to draw the planks on the boat like that cause I would have just colored it brown.

Little half-pint and her boat.

 She had colored about ten people and they all looked the same except for Jesus who was asleep. He is the one on the far left…I think. lol


Baby boy was helping me in the kitchen while the girls were busy playing with boats.
