Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Psalm 126:5-6

Mommy's Going to Plant Some Ribs

The girls have been going to vacation Bible school the last couple of nights and have really been having a great time. Last night our 5 year old came home with a little flower pot that she had painted. I asked her if she would like to plant something in the pot. She was so excited she said," Mommy can we plant some weeds."

Being the mommy who thinks everything has to be in order I told her lets plant some flowers or maybe some herbs that we can use when we cook. She thought that was a great idea. I told her we could maybe plant Basil, or Rosemary or something that would make our food taste really good. She got so excited she ran downstairs and said, " Creighton mommy said we can plant some ribs like we had at that place the other night." When I heard that all I could do was laugh. The only reasoning I could come up with for this was that the other night we had ribs and she just thought since I said we would cook with them it would be something she could eat. I am still pondering how planting herbs could lead to her thinking we would plant ribs. I guess they kind of sound alike. Thanks Brecky for making us all laugh. You are truly a joy to our family.

Long Time no Post

Wow time sure flies. I can't believe how long it has been since I blogged. Really can't figure out a reason why. We have had a pretty lazy summer. Gone to the pool a few times. Had some bar-b-ques nothing real special. Just enjoying the weather and letting the kids play.

Levi is now 9 months old and has 4 teeth. I can't believe these months have gone by so fast. I am beginning to look at school curriculum for this fall and am still in shock that my oldest will be in 7th grade this year. And my 5th born will be starting kindergarten. It should be an interesting school year as I again teach another little one how to read. I so enjoy those first achievements and I really enjoy it when I am the one who gets to hear it first. the Lord has been so gracious in blessing us to be able to home school these children and I know He will continue.

Well everyone out there have a great 4th of July and I hope to not be away from blogging so long this next time.
