Im still here!

my baby (almost 1 yr old)

Boy oh boy does time have a way of slipping by. Were still and doing just fine. We've had a sick baby in the house for the past few days, but he's feeling much better now, thank you Lord. I think it was mostly teething combined with a little bit of a cold. He had a fever for a couple days but today he has been much, much better! So now Im able to get a little bit done that I haven't been able to do with him being so cranky.

We've been back in school for a few weeks and its doing good. I'm loving the Charlotte Mason method. Its so great for our family. Were able to get so much subjects in a day, but it doesn't feel that way and it doesn't take all day either. Were just finding the "learning moments" in life outside of just curriculum. Right now the kids are watching "America-The Story of Us" about the great depression and WWII. We just studied the great depression the last couple weeks and were going to start on WWII this week. So they're really putting a picture in their mind and reinforcing what they learned.

Jeremiah is doing well also, he's learning more letter sounds and starting to do a little copywork. Were going slow but he's making progress and were enjoying it. The boys (Jonathan, Nathan and David) are going to play baseball this spring. So that will defineately make for busy saturdays for us, but they're so excited. So that'll be fun!

This friday Joseph turns one! I cannot believe I am typing those words. Its been hard for me dealing with him turning one. I usually dont get sad about my kids turing one, but maybe I'm getting sensitive with my age or something, but I think this year went way too fast and I dont like it one bit!!! He is my sweet baby though. A cuddler still and starting to say words. He says "bye-bye" and waves, he says, "no-no-no" and "ni-night and he'll lay his head down. He's such a blessing to us , as all of our kids are! Anyway, that was a brief update and I"ll be back with pics of Joseph's birthday party this saturday! Also, I have a picture appt for him this friday. So I'll be updating with pics soon!

Love and Blessings,

Were offically starting school today! Praying for a wonderful start to an exciting school year. I'm very excited to be started the Charlotte Mason method of schooling the kids, so we are all very excited to be getting started. I will have pictures and updates after our day ends and hopefully it'll give me a chance to get back on here and do some house cleaning. It's been way too long again....

Updates however...our dear friends had their first baby on Friday. Gracie Mae came into the world at 1:00 in the afternoon happy and healthy and mama is too. So we are so super excited for them and hope to see them soon. They live in Colorado and we dont get to see them as much as we'd like but pictures are priceless!

Where oh where has the time gone????

Are you kidding me that it's seriously August and I havent been on here since the end of June. Life is busy yes, but seriously, over a month!!! I"m a horrible blogger...lol!

Well lets see its been summer, so days have been blur and turned into weeks. But that's the fun of summer I guess. We've been just really hanging out and not doing anything too exciting, aside from painting! Yes, in my world thats very exciting. Our house when we bought it was painted brown....everywhere....it started feeling like a dungeon. So we decided it was time for a change and went with a very light cream color! What a difference, it feels like a different house! That's been taking up most of my time lately.

The kids and I are taking a break from school and just enjoying the lazy days of summer. I just ordered most of their books for this year, so we'll probably get started the end of the month or early September. I am getting excited to start, and we have such a great group this year with so many activities planned.

My sister is pregnant and having another girl due in January. My sweet neice Kate just turned 1 a couple weeks ago, our dear friends in Colorado are expecting their first little girl anytime so its an exciting time right now.

The kids are doing great, happy and healthy and that's all you can ask for right! Joseph is 10 months old now and crawling all over the place, pulling up on everything he can. He plays peek-a-boo now and says mama and dada and waves bye bye. He's growing up way to fast for me I'll tell ya!

Well we just got home from church and I"m getting tired so I'll sign off for now, and defineately try to make more of an effort to update more often!

They took the plunge!

Hey everyone! Well let me say that this weekend turned out to be awesome! We were so looking forward to seeing family we haven't seen in several years when last minute the plans got cancelled...:-( It was very dissapointing for all of us, but the Lord has ways of turning our mourning into dancing right! So last minute we decide to go to Spring Valley Lake where our church was having a picnic and baptisms. It was so wonderful to fellowship and meet some new people. There was playing in sand and water for the little ones and relaxation for us grown-ups. We also had worship and some teaching and then the baptisms! Thirty-nine were baptized in all, 2 of those were my boys....

(Acts 2:38) - Peter said to them, “Repent, and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

(I Corinthians 12:13) -For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free; and were all given to drink into one Spirit.

(I Peter 3:21) - This is a symbol of baptism, which now saves you—not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
