WORDS TO LIVE BY
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. ~ Ambrose Redmoon
YARD AND GARDEN
The green beans are growing like crazy. I checked them today and they are about twice the size they were Saturday. So it looks like we are going to be picking and canning green beans very soon.
WORKING, LEARNING, AND PLAYING TOGETHER
We had a good day today. It was hot outside so we put down a couple blankets in the shade for the kids to have a place to relax and cool down a little. They liked to look up in the sky and see what shapes they could find in the clouds.
They played band a lot today too.
Michael's stepsister stopped by today with a big teddy bear that he just loves. He calls it Bailey.
I washed and hung out a lot of laundry today and between Amanda and I we got it all folded and put away this evening.
After lunch we worked in workbooks, played a game and read some stories. I also had read aloud time with the older kids this afternoon.
We also read Ephesians 3.
