How green is your footprint?

I have fallen behind on cloth diaper usage lately with two and it got me thinking...
What more can I do to leave a greener footprint?

Rock's lil foot

I need to get back to using the diapers, as well as repurposing and recycling items rather than just trashing everything. We even plan on using old amazon and diaper boxes to build a fort and play kitchen in the spare room for the boys. Homemade and small local companies would also be work towards being greener (rather than big box companies!) We have started toward less processed foods... I don't know if that is greener but definitely healthier :)

How do you leave a greener print?

Online sources for Toddler Schooling

Like I mentioned previously, I have become infatuated with Pinterest, I just love it! I have used the interenet to help with my pre homeschooling for Rock and have found several ideas without Pinterest... but now with pinterest I have found so much more. Previously I really liked www.totallytots.blogspot.com and all the blogs associated with them, as well as notimeforflashcards and the activity mom (see my left sidebar for more). Through Pinterest I jsut found two others that I have started to turn to: filthywizadry.com and mydeliciousambiguity.com - both have great crafts i want to try

Alos for bible crafts I love ministry-to-children.com

Just a quick post.. i feel like i have abandoned my blog for pinterest lol

Come, my children, and listen to me,
and I will teach you to fear the Lord.

Pinterest Monday: Toys for my Boys

I must confess...

I have a new addiction. Sure it seemed harmless at first but now I am hooked. I was just wanting a few more ideas for crafts and things for my boys. But Pinterest came with so much more!

I am often looking for crafts and cute things for my boys. Sewing, crochet, paper craft, you name it.... if I think I can manage it then I pin it.

Here are some of my recent finds that I want to try...

Fairy Tales at your Finger Tips


Cardboard Play Dome

Tiny Turtles Amigurumi

And, of course, pillow fight necessities:

Pillow Fight Shield


Pillow-Fight Weapons

Pinterest Monday From Musings From A Stay At Home Mom


You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross.
Col. 2:13-15 (NLT)
