My dear, eldest daughter called me this afternoon on her lunch hour to let me know that I had a spelling error in my blog last night!!!  Don't bother to look for it, I fixed it while talking to her on the phone!!  If you found it...sorry!  I really did proof read it six times!  Anyway, she seems to be doing well.  She is stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, serving for this GREAT country, in the US Army.  Very proud of her, and all my other Lil' Chicks.  Thank you Dear Daughter #1 for finding my error and for serving our nation!

Today was a busy day just as I expected.  Doctor appointment over and had to wait a little longer than I thought we would.  I had an errand to run after the appointment also, so that left Hubby in charge of school all day.  He did a great job!  He got laundry caught up and even all the grading finished for school!  

We had a good time at  youth meeting this evening.  The number of teens were low...fall break.  Our second daughter, 6th child in birth order, did not go because she has the flu!  Hubby and I helped our youth pastor's wife make cookies for the teen chili supper we are having on Sunday evening after church.  The teen department is raising money for winter camp.  Can you believe I even said "winter"!

Tomorrow will be another early day, we have church visitation in the morning.  I believe they are going door to door.  I am thankful we have leaders in the church that make time to take the teens and some of the younger ones out to reach the community for Christ.

"So teach us to number our days,that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!



Life on the Homestead

Life is keeping us busy.  We have had grans over, a couple family dinners, running teens to friends homes or a church activity. We are helping out a family friend who fell and broke a wrist. Now summer is in full swing and warm and humid!  The air conditioner has been doing its best to keep the home comfortable.

Next week our school age kiddos will be leaving for church camp.   That leaves us with the three adult children who still live at home.  This will be a first for us!

This week we have welcomed two, new to us, vehicles and next week two new licensed drivers....

Well.....I have been trying to get some pictures to upload but am not succeeding! Eeerrrrrr!  I will try again later, when I am not so frustrated!  I will try to keep calm and carry on! ;)
