Getting up at 5 in the morning is not nearly as exciting as I wish it were, but it does allow me to capture the sunrise and most importantly, to get a fresh start on my day before my family is up and roaming around. I wanted to share with you a little this morning of what has been on…

Various Ramblings

Tracy / August 30, 2006

Wednesday, already? These weeks do fly by too quickly! We are now on day 3 of our new schedule. So far, this morning, the children are buzzing around from place to place. We’ve had no real problems (This is a first! Normally, we have to re-do our schedule several times before we find something that works!) I don’t think anyone…

Popcorn, Anyone?

Tracy / August 28, 2006

Last week was very long folks! About midweek our van died, again! Paul thinks that this van must have been submerged under water at some point because we have basically had to have almost everything under the car replaced due to rust! This week, we had the fan belt, fan belt pulley, water pump and radiator changed…to the tune of…

II Peter

Tracy / August 23, 2006

Yesterday, I had the privilege of spending some time with two of our Yahoo Groups ladies making T-shirt dresses! It was a wonderful time of fellowship and I enjoyed getting to meet these two women in person! Today, we’re focusing our efforts on finishing the schedule. I thought that we would be finished yesterday, but it’s taking longer than I…

T-shirt Dressmaking…

Tracy / August 22, 2006

Sorry for the delay in posting this morning…our internet has been on and off following the storms that rolled through our area last night. We really needed the rain, I’m so thankful for it. Some of our little plants look like they took a beating last evening. I’m hoping they’ll perk up as the day goes on. Today, I’m going…

Family Schedule

Tracy / August 21, 2006

Good Monday Morning! I hope that this finds you having had a restful and peaceful weekend. We had a very enjoyable weekend. My Mom came for a visit, which we always enjoy. We cooked roast, creamed potatoes, lima beans, carrot slaw, homemade rolls, and brownies for desert. We did have some excitement in that the oven stopped working properly about…

A Boy and His Dog

Tracy / August 18, 2006

Bless his heart, Matthew would love to have a dog. We just can’t have one where we live and I’m not sure how his allergies would react to another animal. That being said, he has built the next best thing. His own dog, built entirely from Legos, is the actual size of some small dogs, doesn’t make a peep, nor…

Today, I’m posting for Mom, because she isn’t feeling very well.It is going to be a short posting, because we have a lot to do. The picture is the picture of the booklet they gave her to explain about her wisdom teeth. This being said, I’m going to write a little on how to be a blessing to others in…

Split Watermelon?

Tracy / August 16, 2006

Good Morning! I’m so glad to be starting this day feeling almost normal again! There for a while, I was beginning to wonder if I would ever feel like myself! Miss Emma, also, is feeling a little better this morning. It’s so hard to see someone so sweet feeling so bad. She has just wanted to sit in my lap.…

Emma Sniffles

Tracy / August 15, 2006

Well, I’m always up to try new things….I consider myself to be rather adventurous. I think it’s safe to say that yesterday’s adventure into colored text and I-Frames for the site did not work. It’s as simple as that. I promise that at midnight, the night before, it really looked great. I guess that goes to show what a good…

On the Mend

Tracy / August 14, 2006

I couldn’t help but snap this photo during a recent down pour! This is the only down side to drying laundry outside. Believe it or not, it was so hot last week, after the laundry came in, the children stayed outside to play in it for a few minutes! We seem to be slowly returning to the world of healthy…

We’re Sick

Tracy / August 11, 2006

It’s official. I have caught the “bug” that has been making the rounds in my home. Now, in addition to the pain that I’m still experiencing from surgery, I now also have what seems to be a pretty bad cold. The good news is that I went to the oral surgeon yesterday…he says no infection and that the pain I’m…
