First of all, even for a mama who cooks many nights a week, this has been an unusual time.
A little off my normal topics and I have been woefully absent on this site in quite some time, but here is a little something this busy mama has been working on. Here it is! My kids Summer Passport! Summer is always a tricky time for routines, chores, and overall family happiness. I am trying this out this year to see if maybe it will help us all stay on track and survive the summer as a mostly happy family! Feel free to print and adapt. No need to credit. Just a project for my own kids I thought might be helpful. Instructions are on the last page of the document. I apologize that I could not get the PDF to format to a 4×6 size. If anyone would like me to make a send a version Summer Passport PDF Summer Passport Word Document Summer blessings to all my fellow crazy mamas and daddies out there!

My cup of tea is where I find myself and center Jesus more fully in my heart.
It wasn’t fancy or expensive. It wasn’t extra work. It was the thought and appreciation of the other. It was a pure willing of the good of another – it was agapic – love like only God can love.
You can’t beat this for an easy, satisfying comfort food on a cold day. I consider this an acceptable meal for anyone, anytime!
