Flagyl Price, After giving birth to three children, writing a college 20-page final paper 5 hours before it was officially due because I was a retard and didn't go to class consistently and so completely missed the memo (I ended up with an A-... amazingly.

The chalkboard and pasta beading were big hits:

Along with the handful of scheduled (academic) activities Calvin and Charissa do each day (tracked with the awesome sticker chart), I've been helping them memorize Bible verses, Diflucan overnight. Diflucan duration, I decided that the Romans Road to Salvation would be a good starting point (Romans 3:23, 6:23, Diflucan images, 5:8, 10:9-10). The theology is a bit too deep for them to completely comprehend, but as it says in Psalm 119:11
"I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you."
...which prompted me to make this heart pocket pillow to literally "hide" their verses inside. A sort of "hands on" literal reinforcement of the importance of knowing God's word, Diflucan Dosage.
The process of making the heart pocket pillow is similar to making a lined tote bag. And the uses for something like this extends beyond memory verses: encouraging or thoughtful notes for someone special or small toys for infants. Or substitute the heart with a tooth for a tooth fairy pillow. Click here to download the PDF tutorial. Diflucan Dosage, This past weekend, we brought the kids to a local farm to play:
