A Free Friday

Today was a "free" Friday.  We spent Tuesday-Thursday this week with some friends at a cabin.  The plan was to school Monday and Friday, but by last night I left the vote up to hubby if we should just take Friday off as well.  The scholars were excited!  This gave us time to get bedrooms back in a semi-order, and test and quizzes planned for next week!  Tonight was also the "off" night for our teen youth night.  It is nice to have a Friday evening at home, but when you are in a routine it can really throw the evening off.  It really has felt more like a Saturday!

It has been a good day and God has blessed us greatly.  He always provides what we need.  I call it our manna.  He doesn't give us more than we need~~I wouldn't want it to "spoil".  What a wonderful God we serve!

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! ;)
