Today it is rainy and cloudy outside. It actually seems like a fall day, which is nice. I love fall and all the sounds (Christmas music starting), smells (baking cookies, pies and bon fires), and sights (fall festivals, pumpkins, and people decorating their houses for Christmas). God has definitely come up with such a beautiful season, not that all His seasons aren't beautiful, but I just love what He did with the fall. I am looking forward to our first real snowfall Image

I finished a really good book this morning titled A Mom Just Like You: The Home Schooling Mom by Vickie Farris and Jayme Farris Metzgar. She focuses her sights on God and training her children to love the Lord and be Godly parents and adults. It is great. She also has a chapter on giving your fertility over to the Lord (she and her husband really struggled with this), menopause, and challenges of a large family. They have 10 living children. This is a book I may have to actually buy so I can have it as a resource. There is so much in it. Her husband is the founder of the HSLDA homeschool legal defense association; I think it's .org if it doesn't work just type in HSLDA into your search browser. There are so many interesting things on this site and I haven't had time to go through it all myself. I really recommend this book if you are on the fence about homeschooling, are already homeschooling or just want to learn more about it. It is good even for more than just homeschooling though, she gives helpful hints on organizing and spending time daily with our Saviour.

Well I have a dr. appt. today and also need to go to the library to pick up some stuff and maybe let my oldest get a Princess movie, she sees fit to bug me for 🙂 she is persisitent. So I am going to pray that you all have a blessed day and may God let His blessings flow into your life and into others.

God bless.

Hello. Bethanne will now kiss us if we ask her for a kiss, as of yesterday!!! I love having her wrap her arms around me and give me a kiss because she wants too, it is awesome.

She is also walking without assistance now!!!

I am trying to patiently wait for the Lord to bless us again but the more she grows the harder it is.

God bless.
