Monday randoms

Hope you all had a great weekend. Just thought I would get down some completely random things for this Monday morning. Linking up with Carissa...

**As you know I am doing a bible study on a book called, The  Power of  Positive Mom. It has been a wonderful study filled with good information. This past week's study was on the Power of Your Example. This is the line that stood out the most to me as I was reading...
"The lessons we deliver to our children verbally may be wise and good, but lasting lessons are caught not taught." 

That is powerful stuff!

**This weekend after the football game, Cody headed to the deer lease and only Cooper wanted to go. He had lots of quality time with Cody and got to shoot two animals. (Sorry if this is too much for some of you)

He was so excited that he was able to shoot them all by himself!

**Last Wednesday, Carter and I met my Dad for a lunch date. It was so nice to eat and chat-just the three of us. Carter wasn't completely himself, he was a little tired but he sure loves his Papa! I think the feeling is mutual! =)

**I am looking so forward to the conference Cody and I are attending at our church this weekend, "Raising Truly Great Kids" lead by author Dr.Tim Kimmel. Here is what Tim Kimmel says on his website.."With God’s help and a plan, you can raise truly great kids. This conference is a grace-based, character-driven model to nurture confident and cooperative kids-and have a great time in the process.  Parenting is the biggest job you will ever do. Give it your best. Make your kids the priority. Get a clear job description, practical tools, and an effective model to parent your kids the same way God parents His - with grace." Sounds good to me! 

**This is Colton's last week of Fall Ball. His last practice is Wednesday and the last game is Saturday. He has had a great season and learned a lot but I am glad we are going to have our Monday, Wednesday and Saturday evenings free again. Especially since this is the time of year where there is so much going on. So proud of my big boy for being such a devoted and hard working Blackhawk! We love watching him play! 

Hope you all have a great week!!!
