Memorizing Scripture

Tracy / October 21, 2011

Paul and I have been trying to add more Scripture memory to our daily, family routine. I’ve prayed over how to begin- and came up with a few fun ideas focused mostly on our younger children. One, was to make flashcards of a Bible verse for each letter of the alphabet. The Lord really blessed me when last week, rather…

I’m glad to be on to a new day. Jacob, is feeling much better today. He ended up with 8 stitches…though we’re not positive. The stitches on one end of his finger are so close together, it’s hard to tell exactly. We’ve already opened his bandage and cleaned it today. He’s not in too much pain (I’m so glad….). I’m…

Tracy / October 13, 2011

We’ve had a pretty interesting day. On this evening, we’re glad Jacob still has all ten fingers. Boys. I think that’s all I have to say on this subject.

To tell the truth, we’ve not felt so well the last week. I hate to see them not feeling well, but I think it’s just part of life this time of year. I’m always glad to see everyone on the mend, but this does give us a chance to pause and see them all back to health. Please keep my…

Glow Bath

Tracy / October 4, 2011

Tonight’s fun….glow bath– we like to shake things up just a little from time to time. *smile* So, the ingredients for this night of fun…..a bathtub, a handful of glow sticks from the dollar store and a bunch of littles: This little person didn’t want to come out of the tub!

Where’s Josh?

Tracy / September 24, 2011

I believe God does big things. Some times, they seem unbelievable. We couldn’t in our best plans imagine the things that HE determines to be our path. So, I’ve been asked a lot, “where is Josh?”. It’s a long story…and one that weaves it’s way through the last several months. Some time ago, Joshua’s employer took a new job. At…

Updating

Tracy / September 24, 2011

It seems so long since I’ve updated this site. Dial-up is another world when you are used to high-speed internet. I can’t tell you how difficult it is do accomplish simple tasks…things like banking, using the library or just checking store hours. Websites just aren’t being made to use dial-up anymore. If you are trying to blog, or use fb,…

Horseback Riding

Tracy / September 24, 2011

Matthew and Jess had quite the adventure yesterday! They were invited to go horseback riding with some sweet friends: Matt had a little more fun than most…an experience he’ll surely never forget. He fell off of his horse, Bama: Today, he’s really sore, but overall fine. They both had a great time and have been chattering through the morning about…

This has been a long, long week. As we are preparing and starting our new school year, I’m always tweaking this and changing that….it can be a challenge, but honestly, it’s something I look forward to each and every year. We’re working with the littles using Five In A Row. It’s a long-time favorite in our home with our young…

Summer brings such simple pleasures. Amongst all the business of growing food, planning for a new school year, home projects, and in our case, bringing home a new baby, there is still time for simple things…. Meredith received a new bottle of bubbles (her first, ever!), for her birthday…. it’s amazing how such a simple thing can be such fun:…

While We Were Away….

Saturday afternoon, a quick “little” storm blew through. The children called to tell us the power was off and they were going to the basement. We had suffered minor tree damage during the recent tornado activity in our state. Time had not yet allowed us to clean up those trees…looks like we’ll be making time. Saturday’s storms left us with…

A Very Thoughtful Great Aunt….

I’m blessed to call one of the kindest women, my Great-Aunt! The house erupts with excitement when her letters arrive…and from time to time we see her. Everyone is charmed by her smile and her words. She is a gem!! Anyway, I was so surprised when she showed up at the hospital (she lives out of town), to see the…
