Week 6 in Review

Well after Day 10 of our Eco-system experiment we had a couple losses. Our two original fish have died but the 3 babies are still living and the snail is still living. We studied a bit more on Ancient China and We are reading about Persia.

In art Angel has been working on still lifes and she seems to really be good at it. We are working on Algebra more, and the week after Fall break we will be adding in some craft type of stuff. So we can both have the opportunity to be creative.

In my personal life I have returned to the gym. I’m sore but it’s all good. I have also picked up some more sales through my Paparazzi business and praying about my other job. I feel like I’m working hard and I’m wearing myself thin with not much to show.

But I keep plugging away. My hubby has been so helpful and supportive and God has given him favor with those he works with. We try to squeeze in as much family time as possible anymore. Which I love. I enjoy being with my kids and my hubby. I know some people can’t say that but God has blessed me so much in the area of family.

My creative side is burning to be set free and I’ve not had much opportunity to do it. But I’m going to make some time. I think Angel will enjoy it just as much as I will.

This week is fall break for us so no official “school” stuff will be going on but I’m looking forward to some creative fun time.

Have a great week.

Peppermint: My Go To Oil

If I could only pick one oil with which to live I would have to choose Peppermint. Why? Well there are so many reasons. Peppermint is used for so many different things. We use peppermint on a daily basis in our home. Topically, diffused and internally as well.

It’s a very versatile oil with so many benefits.

Our biggest reason for using the Peppermint Vitality in Young Living is because of seasonal allergies. My oldest daughter and I have cut back quite a bit on the amount of allergy medication we have taken in the past because of using Peppermint regularly. I diffuse it for the benefit of respiratory issues and we apply topically for headaches. The vitality can also be taken internally. You can add it to your baked goods or even some of your warm drinks to add just a bit of peppermint flavor. It doesn’t take much to do it either. Just a couple drops.

Here is a video about how to use it:
