What a great time in NC we had!
I’m working on a post for the trip but wanted to share this sweet little pic that Aunt Nancy took of us.
I can’t wait to see more!!!
(L to R: Maverick, Me, Harper, Crews, Chris, Warner)
I also have decided to keep on blogging. Not every day in a row, but I am going to keep it up. I seriously did not realize how many people read our blog, but after going home & having so many of you tell me how much you love it – I’m going to keep it up!
Also, just thought i would share my happiness… all 4 babies are sleeping right now and its raining outside. I’m snuggled in a blanket on my bed. I just ordered 2 books that I can’t wait to get. I’ve heard rave reviews from a couple of friends, and thought I would pass the titles along:
* Homeschooling With A Meek and Quiet Spirit
* Managers of Their Homes
both are by Steve and Teri Maxwell
We are thinking/praying about homeschooling our children, but we still have a few years to go before official schooling starts. However, as you all know, teaching and instruction start the second that your children are born! I remember the first night Harper was born, Chris and I were doing this:
Trying to *teach* her to sleep!
And, I don’t know about you, but teaching isn’t always sweet. I want to be sweet and have a gentle and meek spirit, but sometimes I get so frustrated or frazzled that I am anything but meek & gentle! That is when I find myself putting Harper in timeout or giving her a spanking – because i want a quick result. I haven’t spent the quality or quantity time instructing her. So, this book is supposed to be a wonderful guide in teaching moms to have a gentle & meek spirit as they instruct their children.
I can’t wait to get both books in the mail… I’ll let you know how I like them!
Hope you all are having a great end to summer and beginning of the school year. Just the thought makes me want to go buy new pencils and sharpen them!
