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!

Scissors have been an interesting part of our life this year. One evening in October I found Emma still in her bed awake. I went to figure out what was wrong and found that she had gotten the scissors and was cutting up her sheets. Of course she was punished for that and the scissors were taken away for good. The following day, I thought her hair looked a bit funny but wasn't sure. Later in the day, the more I looked at her hair, the more I realized something wasn't quite right....she had cut her hair. I couldn't find it anywhere. We left to go out of town. While we were gone, I thought of another place to look, inbetween the bed and the wall. I also had Emma looking to.

So...from under her bed she first pulled this hair net out and told me it was her hair. (It came off of her clown wig.) She then pulled out this green hair that had fallen out of the clown wig. Well her hair isn't green so I knew that couldn't be! ;)

Then she pulled out this little girl...it looked similar to her hair but now quite her hair plus more of her hair was gone. This was her dolls hair...so when she was cutting up the sheets and her hair she also cut the dolls hair. When I looked between the bed and the wall I found ALL THIS HAIR! I added the bow for effect...my child cut all her beautiful curls off. :( My parents were here so my mom evened up E's hair. It is growing more but there are still no curls. :( I miss all that hair that was there.
