If you are visiting from the Ultimate Blog Party, welcome! Hope you enjoy your visit and come again soon. And, for my regular readers old and new, hopefully you will enjoy a glimpse at the family and a summary of why and what I do here (or hope to accomplish).
I like using my little cubicle of the blog world to share about God's working in my life as a homeschooling mother of five. Married to an amazing man for 15 1/2 years I look forward to cultivating that relationship for another 40, 50, or so years.
Our adventures include Blake (almost 12) who doesn't like his picture taken, but has an amazing ability to come up with his own science project almost everyday. Typical boy, loves baseball and wrestling on the floor with his siblings.
Paige (9) is my sweet mother in the making. She has a sweet gentle spirit, a passion for the Lord, and powerful observation skills that keep narration conversations lively.
Our cowgirl comes next, Faith (7). Animal lover, goal motivated, generous, and somewhat shy, which surprises me because she was the biggest show off as a toddler and preschooler.
One more princess completes the feminine side of our family at this point . . . Brooke (5). Enjoys anything that her older siblings have found to work on and really loves to work. She tackles ballet with a precision I have never seen in a young girl, and loves folding laundry. Hey, we all have our idiosyncrasies, hers just happen to be useful.
Last, but not least, Nathan (3) keeps us hopping with his energy and giggles. He loves rough and tumble activities, but also has the most snuggles to share and has a long attention span for a good book.
I blog mostly about my faith in Jesus Christ which is the cornerstone of everything else that I do. Each week I post a verse that God has impressed on me and some of the thoughts and challenges that come along with it.
Most of my day I spend homeschooling, so that comes up a lot here as well. I like to share resources, articles, projects, and tips I have found that have worked for us in the hopes that I will inspire and encourage someone else in their journey. Whether you homeschool or not many of these ideas provide the framework for great memory builders with your kids.
Recently I started a series on motherhood and the footprints we share with our children each day.
God has blessed me amazingly and walked with me gently through some trying days as well. I look forward to continuing to share how He is at work in our home and school.
