grammar and spelling. It's forced me to be grow in this area. My poor sister is my editor. I send my devotions to her first and sometimes they come back looking very differently. Thank the Lord, He has given her the gift of editing!
shoer and rancher). A dyed-in-the-wool true cowboy. Don't you love that "stach"?
KitchenAid. Let's see, I think I put in 10 to 12 eggs, a quart of milk, maple syrup, raw sugar, pumpkin spice and cinnamon. I poured it over the top of the yucky bread and then let it soak all night. As soon as got up in the morning I threw it in the oven at 350 for about 45 minutes or so. Then I topped it with whipped cream. It wasn't very sweet so I let the kids put a little bit of maple syrup on top of it. They scarfed it!
Today has been really mellow. I had trouble homeschooling. Teaching division is impossible right now for one of my children. I am going to back up and keep focusing on multiplication. It's just not working and even though they are teaching it at his grade level in public school, this kid is just not there! Rules confuse him and math is nothing BUT rules! This is the beauty of homeschooling. I can scale it back until he is ready for it.
Lily is now sitting up! I've got pictures I'll try to post soon. She is such a happy camper most of the time if she gets to sit up. She has always hated being on her back and tummy.
Pay day was today, so hubby shopped with the little ones (besides Lily) so that I could homeschool without all the noise. It was great! He even put all the groceries away while I paid the bills. He then let me go to my little waterfall quiet spot and do my devotions for an hour. It was heavenly! He is now taking the kids to soccer practice so that I can make dinner and then clean up. What a blessed day, so peaceful (except the occasional fight).
I love having my hubby home! It is nice to get a break from the disciplining. I try to let him take care of things.
