Home educating in progress. First day of 5th grade, 3rd grade and Preschool


The kids left a card table on the back porch after using it with the telescope. Pepper approves.


Jude: Mom, why is Jonah in the corner?
Me: Jonah, did you steal a cookie?
Jonah: MMMMMMMMmmmmm, good!


Foyer before (left) and after (right). So long ugly $10 table I bought 8 years ago to use temporarily. Got my monies worth but am very happy to see it go. Love our new one, more storage for hats, gloves, etc.


Jonah crashed in the Tula today while antique shopping. It reminded me of that song Just be Held by Casting Crowns. So trusting of his father. I want to trust God exactly like this. Complete trust that I can let go and let Him carry me……”when you’re on your knees and answers seem so far away
You’re not alone, stop holding on and just be held. Your worlds not falling apart, its falling into place. I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held.”


Very important dog meeting.


I asked this guy out on a date to a mommy / son dance and he said yes. So we bought him a suit and he stalked UPS all day long. He tried it on for me. It reminded me of the day that Ty got his suit for our wedding in the mail and he tried it on. He was Jude’s age here.


Memory cames with daddy before dinner.



Book worm.


He refused to sleep under a blanket. I keep the heater on so he will sleep and be warm during naptime.


Those freckles though.  Crochet all the time. She’s now mastered the granny square.
