recommended by friends and other quick takes

1. Thank you Laura for the recommendation. My canvases came and I LOVE how they turned out. I ordered 11 x 14 prints of the older 4 and another one of hubs and me from our 10 year anniv photos. Easy Canvas Prints is having a major sale right now.  With eBates, you can get 1.5% cashback.

I love the products so much that I ordered scripture printables  and all saints printable and had them printed on 8 x 10 canvases.

2. I don't want to keep watching BONES. why? Because I am down to the last 2 episodes of the series. I always feel like this specially when reading a good book. When I am at the very last chapter, I dread reading the last page because then I know I am done with the book... I am sure I am not the only one who feels this way when reading or enjoying a good book or TV series. Who's with me?

3.  I am impressed with my children's progress at swim classes. Daniel is at Level 3 now. He is working on his kicks. He passed glides and floats. He is officially a better swimmer than his mother. Isabel is a level below. She finally figured out the bobs with full exhalation when under water. By watching them take lessons, I am learning techniques myself. I did not take classes. I only float for 5 seconds before I freak out. I want to be a good, strong swimmer. My children will have to teach their mother.

4. I am reading the letter of St. Paul to the Romans... One morning, I just had the inspiration to start reading it. I have never done a study on that epistle. Then I saw the current study on She Reads Truth. My, my! what good timing right?

5. I started doing yoga, thanks to yogi inspo Erika {I hope she starts blogging again!} She is absolutely right. I enjoy the classes taught by Fiji. I did two separate 20 minute classes today. I was not sure if the children will let me do a full 40-50 minute class... I did this in the morning... Then this practice in the afternoon. {totally failed on the back bend!} any recommendations, friends to be able to do that back bend? of course, practice everyday and getting stronger. Anything else?

6. 4th of July weekend and the obligatory outfit post
So great to spend time with family who don't live close. We are lucky that both sets of grandparents live in the same city. But our sibs (and their children) do not. It's a treat when I see my nephews and nieces. It was a laid-back weekend. Children played in the yard and sprinklers and inflatable pool. We also went to the actual pool (my first time this summer).

7. I have less than a week till I go back to work. Will you please pray for me and my family?
