Favorite Things

I thought I would share a few of my favorite things that I am using this year to help me study God's word.

The first being the Scripture Reading Plan I am using provided by the Journey church. I like it because if you get behind it is easy to get caught up. :)

The second is what I am using to help me memorize verses. I have always wanted to memorize Philippians and shared that desire with my husband. He directed me to this site which has a VERY helpful guide to memorizing Philippians!

2 1/2 Years Old

Sweet Emma, You are 2 1/2 years old today. I cannot believe it! You have grown so much and continue to amaze me each day. I bought you 3T clothes for the summer but I think you will be in 4T this winter. Can you slow down your growth a little? I plugged all your information in a growth calculator the other day and it said that you would be 5' 9" by the time you are 18. I wonder if that is true? Your temper has started to flare a little more than I would like but you can be so so sweet. Sharing is a bit difficult at times but overall you are so sweet to your friends and you genuinely care about them. Seth of "Sef" is your best little buddy. You talk about him all the time. Owen and Alyssa are your best friends at school. Alyssa likes to share her chocolate pudding with you...or do you take it from her? I'm not really sure but you definitely come home with it on your shirt. You amaze me with how smart you are and how good you are with names. You are definitely going to mommy's best friend at church. I'm so bad with names but I am confident that you will learn everyone's name quickly...I will need you to help me out when you get older. For now if you could stop asking me "Mommy, who is it?" That would be good. It is kind of embarrassing when I can't remember. :) You know where you live, you know where Papa and GG live, you know where Mam and PawPaw live. You remember all of your great aunts, uncles and cousins names even though you rarely see them. The other day we got a picture of Hunter in the mail and you knew immediately who it was when Mommy opened the envelope. You love shoes (like Mommy). You are beginning to get opinions about the clothes that you wear. I bought you two dresses last weekend, one that you picked out and now you won't let me put it on you without a fight. It is so cute...will you please wear it??? I love coming home each day to your little pitter patter running down the hall and you screaming "Mommy, Momm"! You make my bad days so great. I love you sweet girl.! I can't wait to see what God does with your life.
