The majority of the Catholic Bibles around this house are pretty plain, so I was excited to find one with a bit of pizzazz:

I'm over at Pam Barnhill's site again today, sharing my It's Never Too Early to Learn a Language post that explains why even preschoolers can start incorporating a new language into their everyday lives! 

Click on over and check it out, then head back over here to learn all about the latest resource our family loves.


Maybe you learned Spanish way back in school, or German is part of your heritage, or you’ve always thought it would be cool to speak Chinese, or you just want to help your brain stay healthy like this book suggested, or you have big plans for an international trip someday, but you don’t ever get beyond the dreaming phase because learning a new language just seems too overwhelming and the thought of spending hours memorizing flash cards and figuring out excruciating grammar rules has you running to hide...


Friends, there is a different way to introduce your family to another language: Talkbox.mom

We're well beyond the board-book stage around here, but I just couldn't resist this adorable title:

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:


Gv had the fun experience of accompanying her cousin on a field trip at the beginning of the month! They went to a local farm where she was able to chase chickens, brush goats, ride a pony, go on a hay ride, and milk a cow!

It was 80's night at Awana and Gv had fun wearing this get-up:



I also managed to dig up my old charm necklace and 5 slinky bracelets, but they all fell apart pretty quickly. I guess cheap plastic doesn't hold up so well after 35-or-so years!

The remainder of the month was spent enjoying Thanksgiving travels. We explored the Southeastern Coast over three days and visited 6 National Park Units, where Gv had fun earning 9 Jr. Ranger badges and earning two more Master Junior Ranger patches to add to her now rather-large collection.


We were the only ones here on the day before Thanksgiving, which meant tons of time talking to the ranger and learning all sorts of interesting facts!

This ranger found she couldn't stump our Gv -- no matter which skulls she quizzed her on from the table, this NPS-crazy gal knew her stuff!
Ft. Frederica's Jr. Ranger booklet and program might have surpassed our previous favorite (at Ft. Scott) because not only did Gv get to explore with a fun-filled haversack, but the Jr. Ranger booklet was 3-D, too!

What were your favorite memories from this past month?  I'd love to hear!  Either leave a comment below or email me at lisahealy (at) outlook (dot) com.

It seems that most kids' Bible storybooks all focus on the same main characters and stories -- which is fine, since we all want our kids to be familiar with them -- but out of all the fifty bajillion kids' Bible books we have, I think only one mentions this gal:

You might remember my post about Bible journaling and coloring just not being my thing, but when I saw these sumptuous journals, I realized I might just change my mind:



Can You Believe It!? by Hillsong Kids

An album that is both a question and a challenge -- a statement of gratitude to a loving God and an invitation to explore the very foundations of faith!

I received a free copy of this DVD in exchange for writing a review.  All opinions are my own.



I'm sure pretty much everyone is familiar with Hillsong worship songs, since many of their classic refrains fill so many churches each week.

And ever since VBS season this past summer, Gv has been playing the CDs she brought home from each week-long camp, belting out the tunes in her room on pretty much a daily basis.

So when this DVD arrived, I knew she would be excited:

Since I am one of only about three people on the planet still walking around with a dumb phone (what I call my non-smart phone), I have yet to enter the world of Instagram and had no clue who @Reagandoodle and Little Buddy were...but apparently these two cuties have quite the fan base and are well-known and loved by many for their photo-biography.

I might not have been aware of this pair before, but when this book arrived, I could see that their story was something truly special:

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:



Gv continues to enjoy her time on the ice each week. It's fun for me to glance over (I'm in the top left corner) and see her zooming along and hear her giggles drift over to my lane of classes!



Her favorite time to skate is probably still with her buddy here. He's a year younger than she is, but his mom and I (also a coach) can just picture them skating as a team some day!



April has continued to settle in to our family -- it's so different adopting a rescue dog with special needs (and one that's so big, too!), but we're so happy to be giving her a home filled with love.


Gv had fun dissecting an owl pellet in Custer State Park on our trip this past summer, so she was super-excited to learn that she'd get to do it again at the monthly science class we attend at our local preserve!


Gv had been busily constructing her robot costume out of boxes for this year's Halloween, but when we started reading 
The Wizard of Oz a few days ago, she hauled those boxes out to the recycling bin and decided to be Dorothy!

She had a hard time deciding whether to wear her red shoes or silver ones (which match the book), but couldn't find the other half of the silver pair, so that made the decision for her and she just matched the movie!
