Currently. {Vol. 02}

I am back again this week to share my 'Currently(s)'
A Mama Collective
Thinking about: Our Vacation time. The mister and I have begun to make a sort-of 'Bucket-list' of things we want to do, or accomplish, while we are on Vacation time. Beach trips, house projects, day trips, time with family, and lots of movie watching - are at the top of that list! 
Reading: I finished reading Red Knife last night, and haven't picked a new book to start. My quick review of Red Knife, is that it is a very interesting book. Definitely kept my attention the whole time, although I hated the Epilogue, and think the book would be far better without it. 

Listening to: Let Her Go by Passenger has quickly become a favorite in this house.  I love that Passenger is a singer/songwriter. There is something special to me when the artist not only sings it, but when it is something that they wrote. 

Watching: Isanon has been downloading some movies for us to watch lately. This past week we watched, Frozen (with the boys),  Captain America 2, Robocop (with the boys), Non-stop (so good), and Pacific Rim (with the boys).  We have been taking the projector into the hallway and projecting a movie on the wall for all the boys, we love it! 
Thankful for: Packages from home. Today I received a box from my Mama, and I cannot begin to describe how happy each thing inside of it made me. Knowing that she took the time and care to go shopping and pick out some of my very favorite things that I am not able to get here, makes my heart swell. I am so thankful for my mom. 
Goals for this week:

  • Give English classes to the boys. (I've been slacking, hardcore)
  • Take Tyson for a walk every single day. 
  • Clean and organize the laundry area. 
  • Figure out what I'm doing for Isanon for (brazilian) Valentine's day. 

Verse of the week: No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us. 1 John 4:12

  2. Thank you for stopping by my blog Janel. So sweet that your Mom sent you a care package :) I have only been to Brazil once on a missions trip, didn't meet my husband there though :)

    1. You missed out, brazilian husbands are the best! ;) lol, thanks for stopping by!

  3. So nice to "meet" you Janel. So fun to get care packages when you are far away from family.
