A Trip to the Store, Minions Cookies, and Vlogging Thoughts (Blessed Seven Vlog)

Hi, guys! In this vlog, I share an update about why I haven’t been vlogging lately plus we take a trip to Family Dollar. Then we come home and make Minions cookies!

At the end of the vlog, I talk about what my plans may be for future vlogs.

10 Goals for the Week

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

So right now my kids are playing with water balloons in the house. :)

I gave them each two balloons and a towel and told them to play and see how long they can make them last before they pop. All this because we have neighbors who like to let their dog run loose outside. It seems we can’t escape these types of neighbors.

Oh well!

On the plus side, the kids are having a lot of fun, they’re using their imaginations, and I crossed off all my goals for last week.

Here’s what I accomplished last week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

1. Continue to work on memorizing two verses of scripture as a family

8. Order journals for the upcoming school year

Business Goals:

5 New Minions Movie Minion Toy Reviews (The Latest YouTube Videos on Fun Playtime Reviews)

Your kids will enjoy these 5 Fun Minions Movie Toy Videos! They include a Minions BOB Play-Doh Surprise Egg and Minions McDonald's Happy Meal toys! #minions #minionsmovie #toysforkids

I have five new Minions movie Minion toy reviews to share today. :)

But before I get to the videos, here are a few YouTube-related things I’ve observed:

  1. There are lots of mom vloggers on YouTube, and I love gleaning tips and ideas from them. This past week, I found out about a great new homeschooling resource for my two youngest boys. And I saw two “homeschool hauls” where I learned about some inexpensive, but smart homeschool tools/supplies to pick up for when we get started again next month.
  2. For days, my computer lost its mind was acting crazy again, so I deleted applications I don’t use often and updated it with every update available. It turns out there were only two or three updates I needed to make. I have an “old” MacBook Pro and had updated it to the (then) new operating system the last time my computer was giving me problems. The current updates I installed seemed to work, and old “Herb” isn’t giving me the blue screen of death anymore.
    That’s great! But with the new updates also came the latest version of iMovie, which I’ve been dreading because I love using the old version. It turns out, though, I like the new version, and I’m actually editing videos faster with it. :)
  3. Teaching your kids how to edit and upload videos to YouTube can be very helpful. I plan on working on these things more with Nathan and Breanna, my two oldest kids, once schools starts back up. Breanna is already helping out with thumbnails, though.

Now, here are 5 New Minions Movie Minion Toy Reviews:

NEW 2015 Minions Movie Minion Surprise Blind Bags
