THE TRAVELLING BEGINS


Well, it has been a while I know. Things have been busy, I have been have problems physically, and schooling, trumpeting and children have taken all the energy I have! Phew. Anyhow, I thought I would share with you the up and coming for the Weldon family. Travelling.....not all together....but travelling. Well, October brings a two week trip to Minnesota for my husband who is attending Bethel Seminary. He goes out to take intensive courses 2 times a year, making for a very....very....looooonnnng two weeks around here. So, to break it up a bit the girls, my mom and I are going for a few days to Kentucky to the creation museum. It is a wonderful museum in my opinion and I'm hoping that my mom enjoys it as well. It should offer a nice break and a great experience for all of us.


That's it for now. School has been going well. I'll try to update on that soon. We have been doing a character study on responsibility and for several weeks we have been doing this through the lives of the early settlers. This week is the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam...we are going to try out making our own homemade cottage cheese as one of the activities...which was apparently a dutch dish....I'll let you know how it goes!

A GOD WHO HEARS.
I am reminded today of this verse and song, as I know that there are many wonderful friends out there who are praying for me.....and I tell you what, God hears them and is a God who answers!
2 Chronicles 7:14 (New International Version)
14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

HOW DO YOU SAVE ON GROCERIES?







I'm sure from the link above you can tell what we do, and I thought I would share it with you in case you haven't tried it before. Every month we order a large portion of our groceries, and basically all of our meat, through Angel Food. It is a nation wide program, so no matter where you are right now, I'm sure you can find somewhere that you could participate in the program as well. The prices are unmatched and the food is of good quality as well. Oh, and NO there are no qualifications to participate in the program. If you eat food, then you qualify. Check it out, or even better maybe try it out. We stock our freezer full and get some other basics like milk, eggs, frozen veggies, cereal, etc. for just under $100 a month. So, there you go! Let me know what you think!
