7 Quick Takes Friday....I'm calm, I'm cool...I'm collected


1.

or maybe not. 

Actually, I'm all cool and collected on the outside

But, on the inside...I'm all

If you can read that...great...if not..just know that we need prayers for jobs (to find one) and moving (cause we gotta do it and it's gonna be long-distance) and bar exams (cause he gotta pass) and my sanity (because it's going..ha..ha). 

2.

On a good note..cutest-baby-in-the-world-Elsa who is not-quite 11-months old yet, just started walking.  She only takes a few steps at a time, before falling but she's getting there and she could probably get a lot further if there weren't so many obstacles (ie toys/pillows/junk/what-have-you) in her path.

arms out for balance


foiled by the pillows

3.

Have you ever done a Meyer-Briggs Personality test?
I just did one, and came up as ISFJ....which actually explains A LOT about me. 

And, then I did this one and came up with ESFJ which basically goes along with what I thought....I'm a pretty even mix of both extroverted and introverted. 

Or, maybe I just have split personality.

That could explain a lot.

4.

A family member just did IQ tests on the older three kids as part of her work/studies. It was very interesting.  Apparently, my kids are all gifted and I'm not challenging them enough. 
Sigh.  It's good to know though..now I just need to figure out what I may need to change in our homeschooling.

Oh..and did you know I have Facebook Fan page?  Go like it if you're one of those people who like to follow blogs on Facebook.

Rain
by Robert Louis Stevenson

The rain is raining all around.
It falls on field and tree
It rains on the umbrellas here
And, on the ships at sea.

Just thought I would throw a little poetry in...to up intellectual appeal of this blog.  
Plus, as I am writing this, the rain is pouring down.
Anyone want to guess what homeschool curriculum we are using for a certain kindergartner (who according to take number 4 should be in 1st grade or possibly 2nd)?

7.

And, speaking of homeschool curriculum..as part of the kindy curriculum we've been reading this series. 


Which is absolutely charming...but dangnabit, I'm totally jealous of a fictional little boy in a story from the 1930's, because darn it. I've always wanted my own horse.

Now, that you've ready my boring takes, go see Jen for more.

  2. It is all going to work out so beautifully for you and fam! God has such a great plan, and part of that is making us get used to the feeling of free falling until he catches us!

    And we LOVE Billy and Blaze!

  3. Hi Amelia. The first link to the Meyers Briggs test doesn't work, but the second one does. Thanks! I've been looking to take one, tho I wonder how accurate these freebies are. . . . Re: #1: More prayers coming your way!

  4. I don't even want to think about making John Paul take an IQ test... He just met a 9-year-old and said, "Oh! You're 108 months old!" Then he asked her how many teeth she had and when she would die. So... Emotional IQ perhaps not so high?

  5. Hello Amelia! from another Amelia... :) I just wanted to let you know that I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog! Your first take totally made me feel like I know exactly what you're talking about! My husband and I moved to eastern Montana (where he grew up) from South Carolina and it's been a tough adjustment to going from two incomes to one and not knowing what to expect with his job. But, it's all been working out so far, so prayers have been answered! I'm new to the whole blog scene, but it's been nice to have such a nice welcome with young, real, Catholic women blogging! Thanks!

  6. I love sweet baby walks with wide out wide and balance. Even the spills are cute...unless they get they hurt.
