Out and About






Nature walks around here are kinda like going to Disney World.

Minus spending money and travel time.

The excitement about what may be discovered is thrilling for me to witness.

You should take a walk today to see what discoveries are waiting!!

Monday


But as for you,
Be strong and do not give up
for your work will be rewarded.

2 Chronicles 15:7

Sometimes this parenting thing is hard and you feel like giving up.

Trust is difficult at times

but...



Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see!!
(not my words but the Lord's!)

Carlie


As I was blow drying my hair, I saw this in the mirror!!
Kinda creepy, huh?

Carlie has been with us for about a month now!
I guess he's here to stay.
He now pecks on the children's bedroom window in the morning.
A somewhat annoying wake-up call.

Have a great day!


God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into its nest.

Happy Monday


We saw many cool creatures over the weekend.
Since we are studying creep crawlies, being able to search, photograph and then learn interesting facts about our find has been fun!

Hope your Monday is filled with great things.
Learn something new today!

Big Hair is Back

(Sophie enjoys her bath time!!)


As this week begins, so does school.
I'll admit I'm not ready to start teaching again.
We REALLY enjoyed our week off!!

But I know that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

Be strong and take heart, all YOU who HOPE in the Lord.
Psalm31:24
