A few weeks ago we went on a field trip to a large science center. I forgot my camera, but my daughter remembered to take hers. So I have a few pictures to share from that day.
Water table fun!
You have to cooperate to play with this.
I hope you enjoyed these pictures. I am trying to blog more often.
Here is a picture of our youngest child doing school with the rest of us.
Hello! In our area, we are having lovely spring weather, of course this is a week after a snow storm in our area. So we spent Saturday cleaning and rearranging bedrooms. For the first time in many years, we do not have a crib set up in our house. Our two youngest ones now have a set of bunkbeds in their room.
And we set up twin beds for the next two older boys in their room. This was not the original plan, but we could not fit the twin beds in the younger boys’ room. So we went with plan B. And all 4 boys are quite happy with the changes.
This also spurred me on to do some decluttering, and I ended up with a van load of items to donate to a local charity. So we, hopefully, blessed someone else in the process of spring cleaning.
Next on the spring cleaning agenda is yard work. We seem to have a lot of pine cones and sticks and assorted stuff that needs to be cleaned up.
FishMama has a neat Mr. Linky set up, and I thought I would participate.
Where am I on life’s road?
My life has had a lot of twists and turns over the past few years. God gave us an opportunity to operate a homeschool business in 2005, and we are still running that business from home. With the economy like it is, my business has been very slow since September. My husband’s job outside the home has also slowed down dramatically. I will say that we do enjoy having him home more, but the change in our budget has been rough at times.
In October, my husband & I discussed the possibilty of me returning to school for more education. And in January, I started attending a class three nights a week. I am enjoying being a student again. Since I homeschool 5 of mu children, I have been continuing my education anyway. But it is different when you have to study for tests and work on projects as an adult.
I love it! And I have decided, Lord willing, to pursue a two-year degree. I have some college credits, and many of them will transfer to what I want to study. So I am in the process of getting some pre-requisite classes out of the way.
I am also continuing with my homeschool business, and I am still homeschooling my children. So my days and evenings are quite full these days. But I am resting in the Lord, and He is getting me through day-by-day.
Hop on over to Life as Mom, and read some more posts.
I am trying to get back into the swing or writing on my blog. It hs been a hard few months, and I have had a hard time writing from the heart. I am going to try to share some memories I have with my grandfather. I thought it would help me as I am still missing him.
This past Thanksgiving Day we were caring for my grandfather in his home. We had only been able to bring him home from the hospital the day before, so we were all excited to not be spending our Thanksgiving at the hospital. It’s just not the same atmosphere, you know.
We spent a good part of day at my grandfather’s house on Thanksgiving, and that night I offered to stay up and be the “night nurse.” My mom really needed a good night’s sleep. My grandfather was an early to bed, early to rise kind of person, but his cancer and the side effects from the cancer made sleep difficult. He dozed off and on, and but he never fell into a deep sleep.
Sometime in the wee hours of the morning, I realized I had not eaten a large dinner, and I was hungry. So I decided to get a snack. I asked him if he was hungry, and he was, too. And by this time, my uncle had gotten up to be there with us. So I fixed snacks for the three of us, and we enjoyed leftover Thanksgiving food at 3:00 in the morning.
That is such a special memory for me, since it was just a nice time of being together and eating a little snack. We also spent some time talking, since his mind was good, we wanted to enjoy all the time we could with him.
Thinking about that night alternately makes me smile and tear up. I would not give anything for the time I had with him.
