By NWA Day Trips I mean anywhere you can travel round-trip on one tank of gas from Northwest Arkansas. There are so many family fun activities available to us! And although NWA is growing at record speed, we don’t have everything. Fortunately, the things we do lack are usually within a few hours and a tank of gas from us. Sometimes we skip over to our neighboring states of Oklahoma or Missouri. I have already shared a couple adventures in Oklahoma, and today I am sharing another Tulsa adventure.
The one word prompt this week: Change
Five minutes on the clock…ready…set…Go.
“Time is the measurement of change.” That was the definition that Dr. Manor stated during my Survey of the Old Testament class seventeen years ago this Fall. We were discussing Moses and YWHW.
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12
Last summer my daughter turned down every opportunity to go down a water slide. She allowed the fear of the unknown to hold her back. I was so shocked and proud when she had her first chance to try this summer. She boldly marched up the two flights of stairs and made her decent on the winding slide. I have never seen such bridled triumph true to her stoic personality. She repeatedly traveled down that slide with confidence!
It was Kid’s night at Flying Burrito. Two free kids meals with the purchase of one adult entrée. My family of four can eat for less than $10! Naturally the restaurant was bursting at the seams with young families. Really…how can you pass up such a great deal?
My sweet friend, Jamie Smith, is guest posting today. I met Jamie years ago at a scrapbooking crop night before I even knew what a blog was. We have became friends through our local bloggers’ meet-ups. She is truly a fascinating person!
Ah, Friend, I have missed you dearly! I have been on a hiatus for most of July. Being a teacher, I function best on the school calendar. I NEED MY SUMMER BREAKS! But I have to tell you, this break has just about killed me. To withhold myself from getting behind this screen and letting my fingers dance, is like trying to breathe under water.
I met Jennifer Kostick of A Girl on the Doorstep online through the Psalms Series that I participated in on Deep Breaths. At the end of the series, as part of the celebration, each of the contributors shared something in our own lives that we were celebrating. I learned that Jennifer’s first book was being released. What an accomplishment indeed! Jennifer offered to host a giveaway on my blog. How generous!
