Watching My Boys

Love watching the boys.

Watching them with new experiences.

Or with old ones, but with renewed confidence.

No need to buy fancy toys
when nature is so abundant and free.

Love watching the boys enjoy each other
in God's creation.

Many blessings.

Dry Homemade Laundry Detergent

Laundry detergent making day.

What recipe do you use?
Liquid or dry?
We use dry.
Playing with combinations, but currently I like:

2 cups of Fels-Naptha finely graded
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup washing soda
1 cup Borax

I use between 1/4 to 1/2 cup per load.
We have hard water so might be adjusting my recipe soon.
Try to put a splash of vinegar in the rinse cycle
when I remember.
Also, love to add essential oils too.
Love the smell of lavender and tea tree oil.

I really do enjoy making my own laundry detergent.
Really I do, promise.

Soccer Love

Many Blessings

Cub Scout Camping

My hubby and oldest son
went on their first camping trip
with the Cub Scouts.
Oh my with all the prep.
We had to buy a tent,
sleeping bag, and of course lots of snacks.
Off they went on a fun filled, packed weekend.



Rock wall climbing.

Sling shots with dog food.

BB gun shooting.

Lots of hiking.
Oh, there was canoeing, camp fires, story telling,
rope tying, Frisbee throwing,
and eating.
Did I mention hiking, lots of hiking?
My hubby's words, smiles.
We heart Cub Scouts.
