Favorites surprises found in my bed:

Alarm clock hidden under my pillow set to go off at 2 am.

Sweet notes

Fake spiders
(Scared me to death!)

I always smile when I discover these treasures put there by the precious hands of my children!

What treasures await you just as you're ready to retire for the evening?

What better way to spend an evening than watching children perform a play about
Gideon in the Old Testament and
sing praises to God!!!

I am so proud of all the children!

Unwrapping time today!

Raising children,

the most difficult journey at times,

yet the most rewarding in life.

Hope your weekend was fun and your
time was well spent!!

Don't you just love when you have no inspiration for a blog post?

Or energy to think thoughtful thoughts?

I have been so busy with regular life that this blog has taken a back seat.

As soon as summer arrives, I will dedicate a little more time to sharing of our lives.

Have a fabulous day!!

The journey was a little long but worth it once we made it through the briars.

Our turtle friend was resting on the bank and stayed there so we could meet him.

Thanks for the opportunity.
