Eldridge Moonlight Chase 2018

I am totally going to brag on my family!  I am just so proud of each of them!  They rocked this race!  


Titus is holding his medal after running a mile in 7:30!   That is faster than me already- he is only 7 years old!  

This lady right here BEAT her daddy running a four mile race!   This was her third time doing this race.  Three years ago she ran it in 36 minutes, last year 34, and this year 33:09!!!   She is only 10 years old and ran four miles in 33 minutes!!   That is a 8:18 pace!!!  No way can I keep up with this girl and neither can her dad as he came about 45 seconds later.   Selah said she lost her dad about 2.5 miles in the race.   :)  I am so proud of her! 




Cereal Bar Night

Image
Let's be honest and raise our hands and all admit we are too tired every now and again to make dinner and cereal is a go-to on those nights!  
We were out an about and hungry and contemplated going out to eat or what to make at home.   We got this great idea to have a cereal bar night!   We each picked out a cereal and we even got several different milk choices.  
So we got skim, 1%, 2%, strawberry, and Chocolate milk.   Cereal choices were Honey Nut Chex, Dippin Dots, Chocolate Marshmallow Matey's, and Captain Crunch Peanut Butter.  
Selah's creation was a bowl of Dippin Dots (Banana Split) first with chocolate milk and then will strawberry milk.   This seems to sweet to even type out but she liked it.  







Titus asked for a bowl of chocolate Marshmallow Mateys with chocolate milk.  This combo seemed like a natural one and Titus now wants me to keep buying chocolate milk.  Had to explain to him how much sugar was in it and how it is a treat! 


I was a bit more plain and had Honey N…

Book Review: Devotions for Sacred Parenting

Image
Book DescriptionRaising children is a sacred calling—and not for the faint of heart. It shapes the parent every bit as much as parents shape their children. In Devotions for Sacred Parenting, Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Parenting, delves deeper into the conversation and contemplates the soul-transforming journey of being a parent. Many books have been written about how to parent your children effectively, how to become a better parent, and how effective parenting produces better kids. Devotions for Sacred Parenting explores an entirely different reality: how parenting transforms you, the parent. It explores the spiritual dynamics of parenting and why caring for your children is such an effective discipline in shaping your soul and forming the character of Christ within you. With all new material, 52 devotions explore the spiritual dynamics of parenting. These life-related devotions are creative, fresh, and encouraging, inspiring mothers and fathers to look at parenting from a differe…

How To Feel More Confident

It seems as though there are confident people and less confident people. Those who have the confidence are the ones who go through life getting whatever they want because they have the ability to ask for it, or the belief in themselves to go and get it. However, for those with less confidence, or none at all, it can be more difficult. The key thing to remember is that everyone can be confident if you know how to start – confidence is something that grows over time. Here are some tips to begin your new, more confident life. 

Stand Tall 
Stand on a street corner or sit in a coffee shop window and watch the people going by. You’ll be able to spot those who look confident because they will be walking and standing tall with their shoulders straight and their heads up, looking as though they can conquer the world. The way you stand and hold yourself has an impact on how people deceive you, so by standing tall and appearing confidence in your body language is half the battle.

Paul is under the watchful eye of Mauritius (Martinez), the prison's prefect, who seeks to understand how this broken old man can pose such a threat.
