Our new adventure in Iowa

I think you all are aware that we sold our house in Wisconsin and moved this week to Iowa where my husband is the new head pastor of a church here.  It is a fun new adventure but this mom is exhausted and ready for a nice day of rest.  

Here are a couple pictures to showcase our new town.  

We live in the same town as American Pickers, how cool is that!  :)

This is the view from my deck!  Good morning sun and hello Mississippi River!  Or should I say Mississippi's river like my daughter says.  ;)

I hope to show you more pictures once we get more settled.  It has been a lot more work then just unpacking as we are still doing some home improvements on the house. 

My kids are adjusting well but my dog is being a big baby.  She is so confused and is showing some signs of depression.  Time for a long walk for her and some doggy treats.  

I am of to catch some zzz's.   I also have two job interviews on Monday so keep me in your prayers.  I am eager to find out the plans that God has in store for me and my family here in Iowa.  :) 

God bless you!

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!
