Catchy title, eh? I glanced through it and it looks good and thought
Lindsay saw a book - well, I pointed it out to her - about the music of the Lord Of The Rings. It was a hardback book and was $60. She did not buy it. My girls are of the modern age to look up things on Amazon.com, which she did and found it for much less, though she decided to not purchase it yet. She did purchase a Mandolin though! It had great reviews and was an amazing price!
I was amazed! It has already shipped and will be here next week!
While we were out, we also went to the fabric store where she purchased new material for a new medieval era dress. It is going to look really good. It is a light weight cotton, green on green small floral - looks woodsy and is just right for her. She plans to work on that today.
It is fun to go out one on one with my kids. I find they talk my ears off and we get to know each other in deeper ways, and have so much fun! My daughters are amazing young women!
Emily held down the fort for us, after working the afternoon. She has been reading a book called "Radical - Taking Back Your Faith From The American Dream." by David Platt.
She was reading some of it aloud to me the other evening while I was sewing. It was interesting and we had some great discussion. She wanted to buy this book, so Lindsay and I picked it up for her. I am interested in finishing it, too.
The younger kids were playing in the rain when we got home! It was nearly dark and they were soaked and happy. After they got dry and had a snack I read two chapters to them in "The Long Winter" by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Last night Laura and Carrie were almost lost in a blizzard - if Laura hadn't run into the corner of the hotel their whole group from school including their teacher would have been lost out on the endless prairie. It was good to see God's hand in their protection.
After they went to bed, the older girls including Kayleigh piled into my bedroom and onto my bed and we watched two episodes of "My Fair Wedding". It is amazing what this guy does to make weddings beautiful. The girls were still giggling and carrying on at 1:00 when Tim got home, I was sooo tired, and would have been asleep long before this time, but I wouldn't have missed this fun for anything!
Well, I need to run. It is my day to be like the Merchant Ships and bring home the things we need from a far...well, a few of the places are about 30 minutes away! Emily is going with me.
I am so delighted to have these relationships with my daughters. I am blessed.
