I am here but where do I start?
This will just be very random. :)
I still LOVE, LOVE, LOVE My Father's World. We are not as far along as I would like to be. Since starting school the kids took a vacation with my parents to St. Augustine. (I really want to go next time.) They LOVED it! Then we had three or four different revivals, then we took a vacation.....so, I am trying to settle down before the holidays and pick up the pace.
I am so pleased with how Jenna is progressing with her reading. Just out of curiosity I gave her a Bob Book She read it so well and was so excited. She is in week 7 of My Father's World K.
We had a homeschool History event. My crew was Jane Austen, Wyatt Earp, Maid Marian.
Thanks to my Mom, who is so sweet to always make whatever they come up with on a somewhat short notice. She made the girls dresses. She made one for Janie too, just like Jenna's, but the little sweetheart refused to wear it!
Vacation: The Sunday afternoon before my husbands "stay-cation" was to start he said "Let's go to the mountains!" and so just like that 12 hours later we were all packed up and on our way to the Great Smoky Mountains. It is our favorite vacation spot!
Birthdays: Josh turned 11. Janie turned 2 and Dad turned.....uh.....should I say it? 41. :P
|She was caught licking the spoon! :)|
Autumn: My absolute favorite time of year. We had a Fall Fellowship at church. We did a Trunk or Treat and encouraged the kids to dress as bible characters. Here we have my two: Queen Esther and her maid. :)
This was the first time I have ever seen a Trunk or Treat. Here are some pics of the trunks. My idea was taken from a Google search, but since I am the pianist I thought it appropriate to
do a song. "Tis So Sweet To Trust in Jesus."
|Daniel in the den of lions.:) and the Empty Tomb|
|Jonah and the Whale|
|Another version of the empty tomb.|
So, lets see, what else. Well, I have ran out of time and thoughts. I am ready for rest and a regular routine. I'll leave you with a picture of what I think is a perfect glimpse of the little things that reminds me to count my blessings.
