Homeschooling, Out and About, and More


The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, And in the night His song shall be with me.
Psalm 42:8


What a wonderful life I've had. I only wish I had realized it sooner. ~ Collette


I do not want to find myself looking back regretting my lack of appreciation for the beauty of my life now. Instead I want to savor each moment, soaking in the joy and blessing that is mine now, and making the most of the many opportunities I have before me. 

And really, knowing God is directing His loving kindness toward me, and singing over me, how can it be any other way.


Amanda brought her large fish tank from her room to the living room yesterday and I really like it out here. 

Link, our newest little chicken was brought in (by Amanda of course) for a visit today. He/She seems to be healthy and happy and growing quickly.


We officially started our new school year yesterday but things didn't go as planned and we didn't get much done. Today went much better! These big GED study books are going to be the  main guide for the the year for Austin and Amanda. We're also doing our daily read aloud time. Our Bible portion for today was Psalm 119:161-168.

Michael started his schoolwork today. We were going to start this morning but his day did not start well. He woke up, dressed, ate his breakfast, had several meltdowns, put himself
back to bed by about 8:30 and slept until after 11:00. But he woke up in a much better mood and we did his work this afternoon.



We haven't been out much today but were busy over the weekend.

Friday the kids and I went out for pizza for lunch.

Saturday evening we went to a church that was having an anniversary celebration. There were activities for the kids, food and fireworks.

Sunday after church we had the Sunday School picnic. After we ate each kids class went on a Bible scavenger hunt with their teachers for this Sunday School year. 

Later Sunday evening we went with family to McCormick's Farm. The kids live going there and watching the geese and ducks, checking the pond for fish and turtles and just enjoying the grounds.

  1. We started school this week also (on Tuesday) but just math and just the 3 youngest for this week. The boys read constantly and are helping with canning and cooking. Between that and exploring in the woods I figure their education is currently pretty well rounded. :) The 2 oldest are still helping Thomas with construction. So will Austin & Amanda graduate if they pass the GED test? Love the pics of your dad!
