A little bit of what we have been up to.


I am here but where do I start?

This will just be very random. :)

First: School
  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, 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 Bob Books, Set 1: Beginning Readers 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!

One of the most important things we did was to visit the Titanic Museum, for my Titanic crazy daughter.


Birthdays: Josh turned 11. Janie turned 2 and Dad turned.....uh.....should I say it? 41. :P

She was caught licking the spoon! :)
Jessie baked the cake for Janie and Dad. She is looking forward to taking the cake decorating classes at Micheal's real soon. She is also a budding photographer. Look at these pictures she did of Janie just yesterday.


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.


Looking through my door as the sun streams through the trees on a crisp autumn morning. Bliss :)

Lamentations 3:22-24 (King James Version) 

It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.

Sweet Brother.

Oh no! I just realized....

that I have been such a terrible blogger that I forgot to put a "Happy Birthday, Janie" post.

My little precious, feisty,smart,loving little girl turned two on Sept. 25th. Here is a picture I just snapped of her, dirty face and all. I love those cheeks!

I'm gonna make it a goal to get a decent blog post up real soon, like within the next week. :)

We have had vacations, revivals, school and I have just not felt like I had a moment for any kind of writing that might have a thought that might make sense.

Miss Manners ~ Little Janie

Miss Janie has learned to say "welcome." I know she learned it from her big sister Jenna. Jenna is always so polite and if she says "thank you" to  me  and I don't say "your welcome" she will say, "Mom, I said thank you....."

Janie will look for things to bring me so that I can say "thank you, Janie" so she can then say "welcome" to me. I chuckle every time because it is so cute! I just had to record it.
