Lunch on the table yesterday - grilled chicken salad, fresh peaches, cantaloupe. Yum! Flowers from my garden - still trying to find out what they are.My friend Bonnie sent a link to see if I thought that Heliopsis Helianthoides might be it, but the flower petals on mine are a bit rounder - though they must be in the same family. They are cheerful in the garden, and tall!
Kyle watching Sarah play Nancy Drew. They have always looked alike and yesterday both in the same color it was striking. My Mom even commented on it!
Beauty on my kitchen window sill...
It was hard to get good photos with my old point and shoot and the morning light streaming in...
We have been having a lot of fun around here lately. Swimming at Camp Geezer, sleepovers with Grandma and Grandpa, ice cream, time with friends....
Soon it will be back to formal learning for us. I bought a workbook for Kyle on Friday and he started it yesterday. He loves it. I don't like to buy a formal curriculum for a 6 year old so we do a bit of workbook, lots of reading and nature study, math....easy peasy and lots of learning takes place. He is eager and ready to go.
I am loving my life...it's not without it's challenges, but God is good and uses the challenges in our life to help us to become more like Him. I have a long way to go, so there will be more challenges ahead! However, I have learned to look at the daily joys that God sends our way...
....Our young adults who are making wise choices and are growing in the Lord.
....The love of reading that is a part of our daily lives.
....Children who love and obey.
....Swimming at Grandma and Grandpa's!
....Late movies on dvd piled up on my bed.
....Little House Books read aloud before bed.
....Family worship. Joy! Last week we were outside several days for family worship since the weather was so fine. This week we are inside as it is scorching hot here! Thanking the Lord for air conditioning.
Well, I must run.
