Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Hmmm….what’s been going on here? Well, I’m still plugging away. I’ve been getting a little tired of losing weight. I’m not tired of the results. I’m not tired of the compliments. I’m not tired of the smaller clothes. I’m just TIRED OF THE WORK! 🙂 That’s okay though. I’m still working. Right now I’m on […]

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Tropical Traditions sent me their shredded coconut to try. Unsweetened coconut has become one of my very favorite treats on my diet! I love stirring it into plain yogurt with some almonds.

Works of God~Share a Blessing

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

Sorry, I’ve not posted as much lately! I had a photo shoot last week early Friday morning and I didn’t have much for “outside the frame” anyway! We had a busy weekend too so I’m just sitting down now. Here are some blessings from the past week. 1. We were able to get a used […]

Hamlet~A Tragedy~James’s Narration

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

We read Shakespeare in our homeschool. Sometimes I forget to keep up with it. We’re behind where we should be but then I think about the fact that I only had to read 1 Shakespeare play in my entire education. I figure he’s way ahead of where I ever was so I don’t worry about […]

Weld Test

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

Lee said he feels the weld test went well. He knew all the things he was asked to do. He had to read blueprints and assemble some parts. He said that his booth didn’t have a square (not 100% sure what that is) so he went to the man administering the test and asked for […]

1,000 Gifts Chapters 1 & 2

Monday, February 21st, 2011

Here are my notes from Ann Voskamp’s book 1,000 Gifts. I was blessed to receive a copy of it for free from the generous Dayspring Incourage community and I’m very thankful. If any of you donated for that cause, please know that it’s very appreciated. I’ve watched the video for chapters 1 and 2 but […]

I haven’t posted on our adjustment process. I think that we needed to actually adjust before I could blog about it. At first it was very surreal and exciting. We were so thankful and spent a LOT of time together. We canceled almost everything planned and just stayed home together. Sometimes the realization that we […]

Nature Journal

Friday, February 18th, 2011

We’ve worked in our nature journals since before James started school. It’s fun to look back and remember the things we observed. I will admit that we are not as faithful as we should be and I’m trying to do better. It’s not that we don’t have tons of opportunities and ideas! It’s just that […]
