I've been gone from this blog for so long.  There is so much to tell you, all in due time, I promise.  One of the biggest game changers is our decision to homeschool.  That is probably why I stopped blogging in July.  As soon as the decision was made I went into full on research mode.  I didn't have a lot of brain space left for blogging I guess.  I've been around long enough to know that the mere mention of that word elicits a myriad of opinions from people.  Believe me when I say this decision is made up of equal parts prayer, and study.  I've already gone through the fear, anxiety, and doubt and I've come out on the other side....pure joy and contentment.  I can't thank some of you enough for your wise words and support through this journey.  There is a million things I could tell you but instead I want to show you something I found at a local museum and garden in August.

Pouring into young lives is what I'm about.  I realized that when I saw this beautiful work of art.  It starts with my children in my home and when I'm faithful to that it extends to other kids and their families.

Both of these children are miracles, one from the loving womb of another faithful woman and one from my own, a totally unexpected blessing.  I am committed to learning and growing with them, and pouring over them a life that is full and rich with things that matter to God and our family and others we live life with.

So there it is.  This blog won't solely be about homeschooling, its randomness will remain intact.  I am glad to be blogging again, life's always changing isn't it, but I will always be looking for that two donut moment in everyday.....and so should you:)

Fall's Fading Light

The only good thing about losing the leaves is the addition of more light in my living room.  This is a lovely afternoon coffee spot now and pretty much throughout the winter, so if you are out and about and need a cup of joe around about 4:30 stop by, I'll leave the sun up for you:)

De-crowned by a Gryffindork

Moments after this shot was taken Myah accidentally knocked off Taryn's crown with the umbrella.  The lovely princess lost her cool and we could hear the yelling half way down the street.  The de-crowned snow princess never really regained her cool the rest of the night.  Later she called her Harry Potter loving older sister a Gryfindork.  Interesting... zero points for yelling and name calling, one point for clever word usage.  Give credit where credit is due I guess.  We've been laughing about it ever since.
