How’s It Going?

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

It’s going pretty well. Other than James having a million ideas to do with Dad and James’ 2 parents being very tired from all this, we’re doing fine. Fishing started bright and early today. They had a blast. Lee taught James a better way to cast and we all exclaimed over the big fish jumping […]

The Simple Stencil~Review and Giveaway

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

I received the opportunity to try an stencil from The Simple Stencil. I had a list of quotes I was considering ordering in one of these stencils. Of course I couldn’t find the list when I received this opportunity! I chose a beautiful version of 1 Corinthians 4:13. I can do all things through Christ […]

Thank you for praying for us and being excited with us. Lee and I went to the appointment this morning. I sat waiting for the other shoe to drop. Then he said, “Well, I think you should go see your boy right now.” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We agreed. Lee and I went to get James at our […]

Well, today is the day. I appreciate all your prayers. I feel like a kid on Christmas morning and at the same time, I feel a little sick to my stomach! We were able to change the appointment to 2 hours earlier so if all goes well Lee and James will get to see each […]

Is anyone blessed this week? I am blessed to be going to an appointment tomorrow that should change our lives. Please keep praying because I still feel very wary.

Today James and I went to a Civil War encampment in a nearby community. Perfect timing since we’re all about the Civil War this year. We had a really fun time! We got to see 2 battles today and watch all the other things that go on around the encampment. It was hosted at a […]

Flashback Friday

Friday, September 24th, 2010

I haven’t participated in this before. I always see it at Barbara’s but this week’s questions grabbed me. Did you like to read when you were a child? Oh yes! My mother always said, “When I call you put your book down!” I used to come when she called but I walked through the house […]

An Update

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

So many times this spring and summer people have asked me if I’m getting excited that it’s just another year. I can’t get excited. So many things can change at a moment’s notice. Lee said that the prison rule is you don’t count the days. As soon as you count the days something gets messed […]

Good Literature

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

One major component of Ambleside/Charlotte Mason is the use of excellent living books. Since I first read about this, I’ve read books with James that would appear to be beyond his level. James was 2 when I first started reading about Charlotte Mason. We skipped over the little books suggested for 2 year old children […]
