Praise: Thank you for praying for Landon’s hand. This was the first day that he did not moan in pain at some point during the day.

Penny-pinching: There is a Value World coupon out this week in the sale papers that come in the mail! Great for back to school shopping. =) My kids report that Burger King’s iced coffees for $1 are very good (see below).

Playfulness: Pictures of today’s Munchy Monday.

While pulling ivy off of our fence, Owen decided to decorate himself.

After the kids finished all the chores on their lists, we went to Burger King for the $1 summer drinks. Landon and Auburn really enjoyed the iced coffees. If you are an iced tea drinker, I do not recommend their tea. =(


We thoroughly enjoyed our church’s Summerfest and Fireworks last night. I took my camera, but failed to get many pictures. Of the ones I did take, this was the only decent one.
