SUMMER HAIR

Many have asked about Bella’s Summer hair color so here you go…

For multiple years she requests her hair color each Summer when school is out! We’ve tried them all (with caution) seriously so here’s our top favorites that last long enough but, still comes out within a weeks worth of washing! Definitely not a professional job and NO professional for advice but, for a little kid friendly Summer fun it’s worked for us!

TIP** We never leave it in longer than 10/15 minutes to be safe! Most directions say to apply and let sit for 30 minutes but, 1/2 that time is just enough for what we want!

Punky Colour is our favorite and comes in a variety of colors.
Sparks is our second favorite but, we don’t use anything in the box but the color.

Old Towel
Color
Applicator brush
Gloves (will stain clothes and hands)

Paint on hair
Let sit for 10/15 minutes
Wash and condition good
Blow dry

ENJOY SUMMER COLOR! 🙂

DREAM

A few months ago on Easter Sunday, I passed my dream giving key to Bella. As I placed it around her neck, explaining the meaning and purpose of what you do with the key, she began telling me that one of her dreams had already come true with her pet sitting business. We didn’t discuss much more other than to hold on to the key until she gets a bit older because God places dreams in our hearts to dream that are sometimes bigger than what we see today. A big dream or dreams to believe in as He guides us through life.

Skipping forward to today.

12 weeks of Summer bible verse for week two. DREAM proverbs 16:3 “Commit to The Lord whatever you do and He will establish your plans.” Each day we discuss the word and do projects and activities focused towards that word throughout the week. As her Mother I can watch her and know what she truly loves. Actually if you don’t know her and watched her for a day it would be just as obvious. She’s a very strong willed, independent kind of child. You cannot force her to do anything she doesn’t want to. You get what you get kind of girl. It doesn’t make our raising her easy (actually pretty hard 😜) but, what I do know if she wants to chase a dream she will chase it because she knows what she wants. We’ve taken circumstances throughout the week in explaining different aspects of dreams and how sometimes God changes our paths a little, that dreams DO TAKE HARD WORK, dedication and prayer. Most times there is dissapointments in the process of reaching our dreams and even thereafter but you never give up. He often even takes us down a longer path than we might imagine to reach those dreams; because His ways are higher than our own. BUT, in the END… if we put our full faith in Him and focus on where He is leading us we look back and know that everything works out just as He intends. Her dreams may change a few times by the time she’s grown, God will lead her down the path He intends for her future but, my teachings will always be to her (and her brother) to #create your #dreams and DREAM BIG with Him because whatever she loves she truly works at it with all her heart. Colossians 3:23

TODAY, take your dreams and never stop believing! Don’t just sit and expect them to fall in your lap! Work towards that dream with your whole heart! If you don’t have a dream? Dream a dream and give yourself something to work towards as He leads you.

So many things she dreams of wrapped up in one with her pet sitting business on the side!

12 Weeks of Summer

We’re all so excited to have the next 12 weeks for Summer!! Being able to spend the days with my two little people is one of the greatest things! Before school was out Bella and I discussed some fun projects to do together for the Summer to keep them busy! We came up with our top 12 words (one for each week) to research and pour our hearts into. Each word we chose a bible verse or two to go along with that weeks word to memorize. We will do activities each week focusing on that specific word and verse!

Also, we’ve got lots of blogging to do together this Summer! If you follow us on Instagram you should be aware of her love for changing clothes a million times a day for fun since she could dress herself! When she started school, uniforms became her daily routine so as Summers roll around she is thrilled to express herself with her small little fashions. Some “crazy, silly” but most realistic. Keep close for more weeks of Summer projects, kid fashion and our favorite summer musts.
