Still in the process of getting things in order around the Rodgers household. . . it's neat how God gently lays things on our hearts that need improvement in our lives. Whenever it's from God, I can tell because He is kind and loving, not accusing or mean. He graciously leads me in the direction He wants me to go. He's laid it on mine and Brian's hearts to get our home, our schedules, and our finances in order in ways that glorify Him and help our children thrive. And He always provides the means to do it! Toys were taking over the playroom, and I had heard this neat idea years ago to put toys in boxes that you get out at different times. That way they never get tired of seeing the same toys every day. I did it in our playroom: (if you can't read the labels, they are: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Weekend, Outside Toys, Stuffed Animals, and Dolls). Maggie and Penelope have "box time" every day as part of our schedule. They get an hour in the playroom with that day's box. I tried to mix it up and put things in each box that each of them would like. Yesterday they both wanted to play with the Jack and the Box though. :)
And here's a picture of Maggie first thing this morning. I think she's missing her big sister Allie! I sure am! Allie is at her dad's. We all can't wait for her to be home.
