This and That

Image result for queen elizabeth meets baby sussex

I love this photo of the Queen and Prince Philip meeting their new great grandson, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Archie - I never saw that coming, but apparently its very popular in the UK. Harrison seems like an American thing (Harry's son).  I'm pleased that they are all so happy.

Thank you all for your enthusiasm for my projects.  The key thing is making a plan that Tim feels comfortable with and a realistic budget and timetable.

We've already talked with our son in law's brother Daniel about a small project of replacing a door frame for the kitchen door.  Daniel runs Musser Carpentry, a company started by his grandfather.  

This girl has finished her academic work required by the state to graduate. She's handled working, and finishing school very well.  She's going to be working full time, and saving money for Bible school.   

Kyle has finished as well, and has testing today and tomorrow, then we have our evaluations on Monday and are on a break for summer!

When we start again in August, I'll have one student, and he'll be starting high school!  I'll also be starting my 25th year of home educating my kids. What a full career that has been!


  1. archie .. as said in a british accent .. is darling.
    so happy for the sussex family. ♥

  2. Congrats to your graduate! Will there be parties and proms?

    Tim will appreciate your doing the groundwork, I am sure. Then he can okay or nay.

    Nice to know a few good carpenters/contractors.☺️

  3. Congrats on the graduation! I know you are proud. Not really found of that name for the new baby but nobody asked me:) Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  4. "Archie - I never saw that coming" is exactly what I said when I heard the news, Deanna! I mean, popular or not, one expects family names for the royal babies. Oh well …

  5. Congratulations to your graduate! Exciting times ahead. Archie is a name I certainly couldn't have imagined. Not very royal, in my opinion. But he will be loved and that's what's important.

  6. 25 years! That's amazing! To God be the glory. Congratulations on your graduate and as you begin your last four years of homeschooling. You could teach some young moms a lot!

Friday Five: Garden Edition

My garden is in need of weeding, mulch, and deadheading.  However, there is still beauty to see and I am going to share it with you today. 1...
