This is the coolest website I’ve seen in a long time. I cannot wait to start reading through the huge library of children’s books with Anna and Dean. Yay and yay! The title below is just one of many the website lets you read for free!
“We Give Books is a free website that enables anyone with access to the Internet to put books in the hands of children who don’t have them, simply by reading online. Simply choose the charity you want to read for and then select the books you want to read. For each book you read online, we donate a book to a leading literacy group on your behalf. The more you read, the more we give.”
My favorite, sweet little heads
Small head with a big body/big body with a small head.
Not afraid to dirty her pretty dress
Because when you are this young, all God’s creatures are a delight.
“Look how strong I am, mommy!”
And big enough to help with the outside chores.
And so very goofy.
With grandpa in her “forest house.”
A little boy who marvels at everything.
Including what wondrous things might be found in the mud!
Not to be out-goofed by older sister.
Joyful, wobbly babies on bedposts.
And a serious bout with pinkeye.
A little sickness doesn’t put a stop to all the monkey business.
Our pint size ball player
So much fun tuckers you out
It’s no wonder he falls asleep before his tired body hits the sack.
Sneaking in this morning during a busy week of preperation for taxes. I’ve just been itching to share some of my favorite websites with you. I hope you might find them as usefull and enjoyable as I do!
- http://www.blueletterbible.org/index.cfm. Oh my! I cannot say enough about this site. It is a one-stop-shop for nearly everything Biblical that you might need. You can read the Bible in nearly every translation here and every scripture and many words are linked with commentaries of all varieties, including audio and video. The site has ministry resources and links to devotionals and important commentators. My only complaint about The Blue Letter Bible is that it often keeps me from actually opening my underlined and cherished, “real” Bible.

Just thought I would share a little mommy tip that really works for me. I’m sure other moms have these too and are way ahead of me in how they organize and do crafts with their kids, but this is how the craft and book corner is set up at our house.
As you can see, Martha Stewart has a lot on me. The books are shoved in and everything looks a little dumped, but it’s an arrangement that works for us.
Puzzles and games are on the top shelf just out of reach because little hands love to dump these.
Books and paper are on the second shelf and are easily and frequently accessed by the little ones. On the bottom shelf is a tub of paint and other craft supplies. Also a basket with scraps, pipe cleaners and other craft supplies. This is also our play dough station.
