My little ones are so full of life, love and laughter! They crack me up with their mispronounced words and literalness (is that a word?). They bring Steve and I such joy. It is worth all the bickering and such that comes with lots of siblings.
Homeschooling is going well. I have been more consistent this year and I am seeing the fruit of it. Josh is reading better and Marcus is really starting to enjoy math. Jessica seems to enjoy math as well. I have been more relaxed as a teacher and less fretful that I am missing out on something or that there will be holes in their education. I am just one tool in God's tool box!
We have gone an lots of field trips this year. The above picture is our most recent one at the Discovery Center. It's a great way to go on a rainy day. We get a membership every year, which saves our family a ton of money. We are sitting on a giant carved sturgeon.
We are all very healthy right now. What a blessing that is. Except for the occasional cold, or strep, we have been sick-free.
We are also thankful for all the wonderful friends and family that God has blessed us with (you know who you are!). It is wonderful to be loved and to love others that God has placed in our lives for different times and seasons.
We also have a loving church family. Our pastor is going through a battle with cancer and it has been very difficult for him. He knows time might be short and it helps me to look at life and maybe let go of some of things that might have otherwise stressed me out. Things that don't matter, that aren't truly important.
Again, can I just say that life is good right now?
