So pretty. Getting ready to have a birthday!

Well, we have moved, gotten all settled in, figured out how to take care of the pool, the well, and the septic system, and now spring has sprung!  Well, at least the weeds of spring….they are popping up all over my 1.1 acre, and that’s A LOT of ground to cover with weed killer!!  Makes me think of God trying to weed stuff out of my life.  As I am squirting the weeds down, I am being ever so careful to not hit actual plants.  I notice also that good stuff and bad stuff can grow out of the same place.  Hmmmm..

Ok, so we are thinking that next year we will consider putting the kids into a 2 day a week co-op type program.  I am thinking about one that is just down the road, that I have never heard of, and where Sydney would be the highest grade they have.  I am also considering one that I have heard of that has lots of experienced people teaching and is a bit further away.  And so here are the complexities that come along with homeschooling….knowing when to give away some of the reins to someone else, and how to do it.  Praying to see God’s best for my children in all of this…..

Movin’ to the Country…

1-2012

Hello all!  Well, since I last blogged, we have moved to the country!  Well, sort of.  We have an acre out west of the DFW area, where the doggie can roam and the kiddos can swim (well, come summer, they can).  We are looking forward to a new lifestyle and one that fits in nicely with our homeschool lifestyle as well.  As soon as I can, I will post pics of our new homeschool room.  It seems to be more….um…how do I say it….more quiet than it was when we were sharing an office with Steve.

Here are a few shots of the statue in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in the book of Daniel.  We made a cookie out of it, then crushed the feet of the cookie with a rock from outside.  Then we ate it.  That part is NOT in the book of Daniel, but did I mention it was a cookie???

Cookie Statue of Neb…Doesn’t he look delicious?

Sydney looks so cute, even early in the morning.
