Just sitting here and taking a break from the busyness of the day. We have had a productive morning here at the house. Wednesday's are busy days with school because we have lap books to work on for history, and the beginning of writing for the week. The writing takes a few days to complete, so Wednesday is a good day to start and then of course we have our other subjects to complete. We are studying Alexander the Great this week, which has been interesting. I love seeing their little minds in action. And I love when I hear them able to give back to me what they have been taught. It's been a great school year. We have got so much work done, and I feel like they are absorbing so much more. Love homeschooling.
Other than that, the weather has been beautiful. As I sit here, my windows are open...the birds are literally singing in the backyard and the kids are riding bikes outside. I love springtime...it is so refreshing. It's a slow week, which is good. Headed to the local museum on Friday to check it out and to see the planetarium...which will be great for the kids since we have been studying astronomy all year long. I love weeks like this..not too many commitments, good weather and peacefulness. God is so good. Hope your week is going good. What have you been up to?

Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
