The week that was….


This ‘lil guy got accepted into prep with a distance education school…he is loving “school at home” and has been excitedly learning all about cheetah’s while pretending to be one most of the time.
“Mummy let’s be a Cheetah herd…I’ll be the big boy cheetah, Byron will be the baby cheetah, daddy will be the daddy cheetah and you can be the mummy cheetah.”
I love what Noah said this afternoon in character…”Mummy cheetah, I am going to hunt down an impala (aka pillow) for dinner for us all”. He then preceded to BBQ an impala for us to eat :) So cute!

Byron is ten months old! He is crawling around the place and pulling himself to stand on anything he can!

I received a lovely package in the mail from etsy. Thanks Tamara!

Loving this print and this verse :)
Galatians 5:25 For the fruit of the Holy Spirit living in your life is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.
