Pass The Torch Tuesday - a little early

Vikings are still snoozin' and I was going through photos to bring our 2007 time capsule up to date and found this pic was for Kelly's PTT this week!

Financial Peace University and renewed frugality have hit here like a hurricane, the weekly grocery preparations have become a 1-2 hour thing. Most Monday evenings I spend significant time going through the Sunday ads and our Monday newspaper (in which two of our grocery stores' flyers come out) looking for sales and comparing prices.

Since Flicka was subjected to 6 hours round-trip
of Dave Ramsey radio show mp3's to and from Detroit two weeks ago, she has started randomly, for no apparent reason, screaming "we're debt free!" throughout the house. (If you've never listened to Ramsey's radio show - people will often call in immediately following paying off all their debt at which time Ramsey leads them with a 1-2-3 to scream "we're debt free!")

Not to be outdone, Pojke is now "assisting" with my grocery preparation - naming each item as we go:

At this point, I don't know if Kelly is posting tomorrow due to the holiday. But, stop by her place just in case!

Hello my friend! You've been the busy blogger today! :-) I love the "We're debt free" comments by your sweet girl! She's so smart and will no doubt learn, as well as her brother, what it means to be a good steward of the resources that the Lord has given from the modeling you both have shown them. Way to go!!!

LOVED the post from your church notes! THANK YOU!!!

Happy New Year!!

Out of the mouth of babes (your children) came an incredible truth; they are not only modeling what they hear, but they are "calling forth into existence those things that are not, as though they are" (my paraphrase on one of my fav Scripture verses).

LOVE that you are not only learning this, but you are going to be teaching what you have learned. Isn't this what we are called to do; to not just learn for our own benefit, but that the entire body (of Christ) can benefit? Do you realize the impact this can have on your church??? INCREDIBLE!!
Blessings, heaped upon blessings to you and your church!!!

Keep us posted; this is soooo exciting!

I'm so pleased you're passing the torch even on the days I'm not! You're my hero! Happy New Year!
