Follow Friday: This Week’s Favorite Finds

I spent a lot of time searching through the Swedish church records this past week, but not as much time as I would have liked.  There just aren’t enough hours in the day, are there?

I guess I need some better time management skills or something.  Between parenting and teaching 5 kids at home, keeping the house semi-clean and everyone fed (usually – cereal can be dinner, right?), doing genealogy, helping out with ESL class, attending Bible study, blogging, taking a lot of pictures, and walking 40 miles a week, I don’t have much time left to sleep.:)

I’m going to continue focusing on my Swedish roots this next week as I have free time.  I’ve been really excited about what I’ve found so far.  Now if only I could actually read Swedish.  I can decipher enough to figure out it’s my ancestor, but I know that I’m missing out on a lot of great clues since I can’t figure out what some of it says.  Maybe it’s time to start studying Swedish.  I’ll add it to my list of things to accomplish….

This past week has been a busy one.  I really wish that I wasn’t such a night owl, but if I didn’t stay up late, then I wouldn’t get anything done.  Of course, I could probably do those same things in the morning, but that would require me getting out of bed early – which I have a hard time doing (7:30 is my norm). Are you an early bird or a night owl?

Well, I’ve probably rambled enough. Here are some of my favorite finds from this past week:

And a few pictures to share:

Yes, you guessed it.  We made ANOTHER trip to the zoo.  It’s close by and FREE since we have a membership.  We’re there a lot.I love watching the monkeys.:)This guy was watching US.My daughter Ellie drew this picture.  It cracks me up.

I took some pictures for a fellow military family this past week.  A father, his son and his son’s wife all serving.  His son was on leave from Afghanistan.I hope you all have a great week!!
