Back to the budget...

So the first month of the all cash no credit budget is going pretty well. At least for me. However one small glitch is that I keep forgetting to give the husband his share of cash. Oops. Then he is forced to use the plastic.
So actually, I'm not really sure how this budget is going. I know that I have cut back on spending. Which is good. But I also am realizing that staying inside the parameters of a budget is REALLY REALLY HARD! Especially when Husband's expensive work boots lose their sole after only six months! (Thanks to F/F for working with us on that.)
Money is probably the hardest area to give over to God. But I'm gonna keep trying to give it all back to Him because it doesn't belong to me anyway. And besides, I know that God is good all the time. Even when I feel like life is tough. But the reality is, I have it so good, and I know that. A husband that loves me, a roof over my head, food to eat, a healthy family, my husband has a full time job, cars that run, clothes, and the list goes on. I'm spoiled really and I need to remember that.
Thanks God. Pin It

end of summer blues

So who has time for blogging when summer is almost over! We have been trying to live it up before it's gone.
We have been camping with friends, I even slept in a tent! Haven't done that in awhile.
We have been to the beach a couple of more times. ( Lost 2 pairs of goggles of course).
We have had company after company, it seems the house has been full for awhile now. So fun to share our home.
My sister and kids even managed to come for a visit. I love watching the little boys play, Ian and Wyat. They are very cute together.
And we also got to see my Dad and Mom.
Plus we had a sleep over with Tracy and Caden.
Most fun of all was the cute diaper/wipes case my sister and I worked on together that I need to take a pic of and post. I think Amanda (our cousin) will love using it for her new bambino.
I can't believe summer is almost over . . .
It has been so much fun!
I've got the end of summer blues.
I don't want to see it end!

My middle son is six today! My little sixlet! How the time has flown, how his life has changed. It is so amazing to think back on the day he was born, a helpless infant, so small and cute. Downy soft cheeks, a tuft of brown hair on top of his head. Fast forward to today: sparkling hazel eyes, full of mischief, boundless energy, knees and elbows and sweaty hugs. All of the growing, all of the changes. It is amazing to see the young man inside of him. Six. It's a good age.
