I feel blessed

For the last two days I've been completely spoiled. This year, our church was one of the host sites for the above mentioned summit. Mike and I were able to attend and let me tell you - it was AWESOME! We sat and listened to amazing speakers who inspired and challenged us. If you have the opportunity to go next year . . . GO! It was great to get away from the every day routine and listen to some incredible leaders.

On top of that, I got to hang out with my hubby - lunch dates two days in a row. Our kids were in the very capable hands of Grandma Carmody. It wouldn't have been possible without her - thank you Peggy, we appreciate you!

Anyway, I'm feeling very blessed. I'm so thankful that there are wise men and women willing to share their insight, experience and humour (there were a lot of laughs) with the rest of the world. I'm so glad I got to be part of it. I learned a lot.

We just finished reading Mr. Popper's Penguins together and when I saw this craft online, I thought it would be the perfect activity to wrap it up. I forgot to take pictures of the kids actually doing the craft. They used potatoes for the penguins and the tip of a small make-up sponge for the beaks and feet. The background was also done using a sponge. I think they turned out pretty cute and the kids had a lot of fun making them.

(By the way, I have no idea why blogger flipped my first two pictures. I tried multiple times to repost them but I couldn't get them the right way. If anyone knows what to do about it, please let me know. In the meantime, you'll just have to turn your head sideways!)
