It has been a loooonnnnggg time since I posted anything! This winter and spring has been crazy busy - mostly good busy, though. Lots of fun stuff with the kids, our science co-op, all kinds of fellowships with friends, and the cabinet shop has been inundated with orders! We also got to host a little guy from Safe Families for almost a month. He is coming back out today for a few days to visit. So excited! In the meantime, though, here is a bit of status, hopefully I can update some reading logs, and maybe get a few pictures in as well.
Stole the questions for the Status Update from Kim at The Upward Call
Sitting: in my big recliner, where I do most of my reading and studying.
Glad: that I got a bunch of cabinets ordered last night so I can chill this morning.
Thankful: to have a beautiful day, since we are driving over an hour each way to pick up our little Safe Families guy for a visit.
Re-evaluating: my plans for school this fall.
Looking ahead to: time on Saturday that I am going to make some jewelry. The guys will all be gone at a Mens' Breakfast at church and I am going to sort my goodies and string some beads. It has been way too long.
Feeling bad: for some of my friends who are going through some really tough times. I know prayer is the most important thing we can do, but I wish there were some physical things I could do as well. Sometimes there are, but most of the time it is too big.
Relieved: that Joe, who was droopy all yesterday and not feeling good last night, is up and back to his normal self today!
Happy: to be working on a new Bible study from Cruciform Press titled "Joy! A Bible Study On Philippians for Women" by Keri Folmer and reading "Ties That Bind" by one of my favorite authors, C.J. Darlington
Curious: about so many things.
Thinking: about how to mesh sports and homeschooling.
Proud: of my husband.
Wondering: if it is too soon to start stressing out about our biology co-op next year.
Praising God: for this gorgeous day that I get to enjoy.
And now, onto some books....I really wish I could just cut and paste my logs from Goodreads...here is a link to my shelf of books I have read so far this year which I have creatively titled "2013 Log". All my current reads are over to the right. I have pretty much gotten away from writing reviews, just doing stars. I know, I know.....
Other than that, not much to tell. But, I will anyway, with just a few from the family album!
|Ben at his 13th birthday party. He had a dodgeball party. The cake is Rubik's Cube themed. He does not like having his picture taken, can you tell?|
|Joe, performing a science experiment|
|Henry showing us some Darth Maul moves with the double light saber his dad made for him.|
|Me and my mom at a ladies dinner at her church. Yes, we are wearing paper hats. Don't ask.|
|Group photo from our last airsoft war. We usually do one in the fall and one in the spring.|
Tony's 15th birthday. Me and my four men, plus Tony's buddy Caleb. Caleb seems to show up in a lot of our pictures.
And that is it! Hopefully I won't wait four months to write again. I need to update the pictures on the sidebar as well. But not today. Today I am going to go get the little guy!
