Looking forward to this week:
Our trip to California on Thursday. We're heading to Disneyland and then Los Angeles, Walk of Fame, Madame Tussauds and Queen Mary Ship. Anyone have any ideas on attractions or anything that we SHOULD see while in the area? Would love some ideas.
Tips and Tricks:
Since we're traveling a lot this month, all my tips and tricks are related. We usually print out a map of where we're going and we let the kids color it in as we travel through the cities and States. Also giving your kids their own camera to take pictures from their perspective, is a great idea, they can later make a scrapbook from their travels.
My favorite blog post this week:
No blog reading last week
Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to read anything
No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):
Lesson learned the past few days:
One I've learned before but am constantly reminded of..........to enjoy every precious moment you have with your family. Being in the USA with all my family back in South Africa has not been easy, so having some of them here for a month has been a blessing.
On my mind:
Our trip to California
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
— 2 Peter 3:9
