Although I'd met Iris in person once before, it had been much too long since 2009. So we agreed to meet at Starbucks in Tempe, Arizona. The weather was so beautiful; sunny and in the low 70's. What a welcome relief after our cold spell this past week. I know you Northerners are probably rolling your eyes but remember that we move to the Phoenix area for the weather (the winter weather in particular).
So what do two bloggers talk about? Well, I'm not going to share our conversation with you but I will say that we talked nonstop. What fun and ...such a time of encouragement.
At Home with Kim. She started a Facebook accountability group so we could share recipes, tips and advice with one another. In the process, Kim decided to form another Facebook group so we could stay grounded in the Word of God. That same encouragement has spilled over to our group as we share what we are learning in our morning quiet time. What a blessing to get to know more women with a heart for the Lord.
Pre-K 3 Class
Speaking of blessings, I can't help but write about those little blessings in our Pre-K 3 class.
I found these cuties on Pinterest. I had to laugh because many of the children have these tiny oranges in their lunch boxes. I get to help them with their lunches and whenever a child has them, they lift them up and say "Miss Debbie, look what I have." We always say "Cuties for my cuties". :)
