The art of homemaking is more than shining floors or ironed shirts, it is a way of life for many men and women. Beyond the daily chores routine, many homemakers teach children, volunteer their time, garden, or create a loving environment enriched by dutiful hands. Texas Homemaking seeks to encourage homemakers through crafts, useful tips, goal setting, organizing charts, daily deals, family issues, homeschooling, and more.
This past week was a blur...in fact, had I not taken some photos, I couldn't tell you what occurred! Here's a brief look into my last week (cue the photo montage).
My husband and I working on my newest Pinterest Production...to be posted soon!
Last Monday, I was helping host a wedding shower at our church! I made the cupcake stand in a previous post.
I just loved the ranch dip and veggies in their own bread cups someone brought to the party.
Aren't the centerpieces adorable? Would you believe me if I told you they were made from soda cans?
The South Africans stopped by on Thursday to learn how to shoot guns (well, one knew how, but the rest did not). My husband and his co-worker, Ryan, took them to the shooting range - but in the end, I out shot them all...even the professionals (Thanks Ryan & Jake. I had a ball!)
At our last park day, one of my friend's sweet daughters brought me a special surprise to share with my boys : A Luna moth caterpillar. I taught the boys a little bit about the life stages of caterpillars and moths/butterflies; and then, we watched this one build his cocoon!
I spent the majority of my Saturday setting up and helping with Longview World of Wonder's program, World of Flight, a LEGO competition for ages 4 through 13. We had a great turn-out; and I really enjoyed seeing all the fantastic and unique builds.
This week is looking calmer. I am helping re-create a Purim Celebration at church tomorrow night, so be looking for my What I Did Wednesday post to learn a little more about Purim and what I made to share with the children!
