Encouraging our Children in new interests!

On Memorial Day our family walked up the smaller mountain we have here in Wisconsin.  :)  It was a great family walk and fun picnic at the top of a beautiful view:

As we started the hike back down we turned our walk to a run.  After we got half way down my daughter requested to run with us.  She impressed both my husband and myself.  She ran and ran and her coordination was great!!  :)  I was so thrilled!  She was running in sandals and a dress so I knew a shopping trip was in store for us to find running shoes and outfit for her! 

3 hours of searching for the right shoes this is what we found:

After we got home she immediately put it on.  We waited and waited for daddy to arrive home.  I absolutely enjoyed my husbands enthusiasm when he saw his daughter.  He was so encouraging and full of compliments.  :)  It melted my heart.... I love him so much, and I adore watching him being a daddy.  :) 

Soon after the hubby and I had to change because Selah was anxiously waiting to go for a run in her new shoes.  :) So here is the SHOCKING part we ran... 1.21 miles!  :)  Her first run in her new shoes and she impressed us so so much!!!  :) :)  

I am looking forward to a running partner!  :)  :)  In fact I signed her up for a half mile run in 2 weeks and I will be running a 5K.  :) 

It is a joy to watch my children in new talents.  Running may not seem like much to many but to me I sit back and think if this is a talent that God is blessing my daughter with then how can she use it to Glorify God?  How can I help her in this talent? 

A lot for me to reflect on.  I love it and I LOVE GOD!

YAY! My oldest is a lot like Selah. He ran a .5 mile kids race also. Funny cause he can outrun all his older cousins not by speed but by endurance :) Have fun with your running partner.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
