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!







MERRY CHRISTMAS 2016

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS!!!!



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! ;)
