Keeping Up

Keeping up with the blogging lately has been a bit of a chore.  Not because I don't want to, but life gets in the way! 

The days are getting warmer, though the nights are still a bit chilly.  It makes me want to spring clean.  School will be finished in one month and I will be able to tackle some of the things then.  Right now I am doing good to keep up on the day to day. 

It has been hard to keep the younger scholars interest in school with the sun is shining.  They are ready to be out and about.  Our poor yard has suffered with the drought we had last summer.  And the dog we adopted that our second son found has not helped the matter any!  Then add the little feet on it!  I keep telling myself, "it's only grass", but that has not brought any comfort! :)  Actually it looks more like islands of grass in a sea of dirt!  {I miss my grass}

Well, Hubby is home from work.  I have 7 out of 9 children in bed.  I going to spend a few minutes with him before turning in myself.  (I am up just a few minutes after 6 a.m., and 3 scholars are up by 6:15, starting school by 6:30 after having devotions.)  I love getting up early and getting my day started.

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!

Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!

They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
