May Bullet Journal Set Up (+April Recap Part 2)

May Bullet Journal Set Up (+April Recap Part 2)

Hey everybody! I’m finally here with my May Bujo set up. ๐Ÿ˜€

This time I again tried to cut down on pages, even more than last time, to save pages and make my journal last longer. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I did the whole thing in only a few pages! Thus, the whole set up didn’t take me as long as usual to complete, and I like it that way. (Because I don’t have time to spend 5 years working on spreads for one month. Haha!) ๐Ÿคฃ

May’s theme is…..

Butterflys!!!

I’ve been wanted to use this as a theme, well, ever since I bought some really pretty butterfly sticker on amazon. ๐Ÿ˜‚

And yeah, let’s just get into it!! ๐Ÿ˜€

The May cover page is similar to my April cover page. I just liked it so much, I had to do it again! I really love how it turned out – it looks so cheerful and spring-y!! ๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿฆ‹

Next up, are my goals for May, my word of the month (Servant), habit tracker, and mood tracker. I told you guys I was using less pages! Normally, each of those would take a whole page, haha!

Now we have maybe my favorite page (it’s tied with all the other pages), my book tracker, and a Line a Day. (Where I simply write a line about my day, each day.) ๐Ÿ˜€

A few more trackers (Social tracker, Bible Reading, and Goals and Rewards. And yes, I know that I haven’t finished the Goals and Rewards section. Still trying to think of rewards! Any ideas???)

After that, the only spread left to share is my daily spread. Super simple and functional. ๐Ÿ˜€

And that’s it for my bullet journal this month, folks! I hope you guys enjoyed!


And there’s just one more thing I wanted to add in. This has absolutely nothing to do with the topic of this post, but a few days ago when I posted my April Recap, I missed something very important! Some thing that was a lot of fun, and I don’t know how I ever could have ever missed it! Lol. XD

So I’m just going to call this section, April Recap, Part 2. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Around mid-April, our family went with another family up to the mountains to visit another family. (Ok sorry, that was a slightly confusing sentence! Just read it again, until you get it.) ๐Ÿ˜‰ LOL!

We went with the Garcia family, and we visited a man named Juan and his family, who lives a few hours away, far from civilization. (Well, not really far, but it feels far since it takes so long to get there because of the roads, lol!)

We got there for around lunch time, and we brought hot dogs for lunch. We used our special invention to cook them over the fire. (our special invention being chicken wire, which we lay about 20 hot dogs on top of, over the fire, to cook a bunch of them at once and save time!) XD If that didn’t make sense, see the photo below. I’m sorry, I’m bad at explaining things. LOL! ๐Ÿ˜‚

After lunch, we all decided do go on a hike. We drove a little ways to a good starting place, and then off we went!

The Mountains are so pretty!!

Selfie with my water bottle. Why? I don’t know. All I know, is that it was gone in like the next three strides, and I had no more water the rest of the way. LOL!

On the way, we came across this wall/cliff made of white sand. Everyone else probably thought, “oh, a wall of White sand! Cool, and bye.” but Lizzie and I thought, “Oh, a wall of white sand! LET’S CLIMB IT!” So we did.

(And I definitely did not rip my skirt twice in the process…. Don’t worry, it’s fixed now) ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿคฃ

We got stuck half way to the top, and couldn’t go any farther because there were no branches to hang on to. So we did the next logical thing, and slid all the way to the bottom (Filling our shoes with dirt) and into the tiny stream below (thereby filling them with water. THEREBY! We were muddy.) LOL! ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿคฃ

After walking 37 miles (or 1 1/2 I guess maybe), we reached our destination – a small (but large for the area) pool of water. ๐Ÿ˜€

After spending a little while there, talking and wading in the water *trying* to catch the fish, we headed back.

(And I most certainly was not so thirsty on the way back that I drank some of the stream water.) Hey, it was (mostly) clear!!! LOL! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

When we got back to Juan’s house, we had a little bit of Bible reading and singing time which was great. ๐Ÿ˜€

Philip and Me

And there y’all have it, folks! ๐Ÿ˜€ It was a great time, and believe me, we got home tired, lol! XD I hope you guys enjoyed the photos, and I’ll see you in my next post! I hope everyone is having a great day. ๐Ÿ’•

I’m off to make some cheese! ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿง€

Life as a Missionary Kid in Mexico

Standard

Hey guys! Hattush from Daughter of the Light interviewed me for a guest post on her blog. ๐Ÿ˜€ She asked a lot of great questions, especially about our family’s life and ministry here in Mexico. ๐Ÿ™‚ Even though this was originally written for her blog, I thought I’d share it with you as well! ๐Ÿ˜€


 

  • Why did your family decide to go into missions?

 

Well, my momโ€™s parents were missionaries in Mexico when she was a girl, and my dad worked with my grandpa before he was married. My parents married in Mexico, and when I was 2 we moved to the States. My Dad wanted to get more training and church experience before going back to plant a church. And 4 and a half years ago, we did! ๐Ÿ™‚ย

Marr family, January 2019

 

  • Whatโ€™s one of the funniest things that happened to you in Mexico?

 

I honestly have no idea about this question.ย  Ok, one funny/embarrassing thing that happened to meโ€ฆ Once when we first moved here, I was buying tortillas and asked for โ€œflourโ€ tortillas, but instead of using the word for flour, I accidentally used the word for umโ€ฆ.. Urine. XD The lady was laughing and laughing, and I never knew until I told Dad about it!

 

 

  • What was the hardest to adjust to?

 

  1. The lack of Christian fellowship. This is something I really took for granted when we lived in the US.ย 
  2. Language! Moving to a country where you know almost nothing of the language was pretty rough. Almost 5 years later, Iโ€™m not as fluent as I would have hoped, but at least I can communicate some.ย 

 

 

  • Do you miss the US?

 

Yes, I do, very much. However, it has gotten easier as the years have gone by. Iโ€™m really learning to trust God with where He has placed me. I still miss my friends a lot, but the Lord is teaching me to be content.ย 

 

 

  • Whatโ€™s the hardest thing about being a missionary kid?

 

Maybe the fact that most of my relationships are online-based since most of my friends live in the US, or other parts of Mexico.ย 

Rosy (17)

 

  • What is the most rewarding?

 

Just being right where God has placed us. Also, I love seeing God working in other peopleโ€™s lives.ย 

 

 

  • What are your favorite things to do when you want to relax? ๐Ÿ˜›

 

Definitely doing art! Thereโ€™s almost never a time when I donโ€™t have some project or another going on! Next to that, it would be reading.

 

  • What is your favorite time of year?

 

Thatโ€™s a hard one. XD There are pros and cons to every time of year. I love the summer. However in the summer electricity and internet are out almost more than theyโ€™re on, because of the rainy season. In the winter, at least we have electricity, but itโ€™s SO cold, and I canโ€™t say I really love the cold. All in all, I guess Iโ€™d have to say Summer because I love rain and thunder, even with the lack of internet. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

 

 

  • What is the climate like?

 

Well, I sort of touched on this in the last question. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Spring is actually the hottest time of year, though it rarely even hits 100 degrees which is super nice, especially after living in Phoenix, Arizona! (Where it gets to 120…) XD Summer is fun because it rains a lot and everything gets super green, which I totally love.ย  Fall is just fall, and then in Winter it gets SUPER cold (at least for us, after living in AZ). It snows, although not much, and one of the sad things about Winter is that I always have to wear shoesโ€ฆ XDย 

 

 

  • What is something you want to say to other missionary kids?

 

I know it may be hard, but donโ€™t get discouraged! It will get easier. When I accepted living here and surrendered to God, I was a lot happier with my life. Even though itโ€™s still hard sometimes, and I miss my friends, Iโ€™m happy.ย 

 

  • Whatโ€™s a fun fact that not many people know about you? ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

ย ย ย My sister Gracie and I are less than a year apart, and we are the same age for 12 days! ๐Ÿ˜€ย
