After having only one boy, I realized that he was going to need "hands on" activies!
And with the weather changing and not lots of time outdoors,
I quickly remembered what my oldest used to LOVE to do!
One of the favorite things for him to do was
to take apart broken electronics.
We have passed down the torch, so to speak!
We had an old vcr that broke so I cut off the electric cord and they went to town!
For literally HOURS...
they detached every part possible!
Not a wire or squiggly thingy bob was left!
(I am a female and that is my terminology!)
They used screwdrivers and pliers and their own fingers
Until it was no longer recognizable.
They took turns and figured out which tools they would need to desassemble it all!
Then their older brother came home and showed them how to build a little engine out of the tiny motors.
It was an unforgetable experience for all of us!
My 6 year old even carried his in his pocket to church!
I love boys!
I highly recommend it for any busy boys!
They will love it!

When all that you know and are comfortable with, is about to change,
you REALLY begin to start looking at what IS TRULY important!
This Thanksgving was probably one of the most spiritual for me!
We started out going through the story of Thanksgiving with our kids and how God was the center of it! Much reason to celebrate! ( If only that were the way this country was now!)
We talked about how hard it must have been for those pilgrims!
They too, left all that they knew in search of something greater and trusted God for their needs! They went through many trials and suffered much but they continued on! God blessed them and brought them through!
We decided that in the coming weeks, that is what we must do!
Wait and watch and see what God will do! He knows where we are going to live!
In that waiting, we will trust, do the things that God has us do and not get weary.
if we do get weary in the waiting, we know that God will strengthen us!
The outcome for the pilgrims was incredible because they knew who they had on their side!
The ever-present, unfailing, God!
I too, was reminded this Thanksgiving that all that I have is His and I can leave it in His hands because He is the same yesterday, today and forever!
I don't know what the future holds, none of us do!
But my children look to us to show them and they trust us without any doubt!
They run and play without a care in the world knowing that we will feed them, clothe them, and tell them of Jesus love!
That is what we must do!
I have been reminded this past week with all that around me seems to be caving in, that my God CAN be trusted and as a child, I am to leave it my Father's hands! He will provide!
Oh I am so Thankful!
