Simple Woman's Daybook - November 16th, 2009

The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window My neighbors are leaving for work

I am thinking I should be getting off the computer to go ready my Bible!

I am thankful for The spirit of Thanksgiving

I am wearing Still in my pjs

I am remembering Thanksgivings when I was little and my Grandparents would come and celebrate with us. Dad always got a deer and my Grandparents always brought presents because we wouldn't see them at Christmas.

I am going Maybe to Charleston today. Tonight is Cub Scouts

I am hoping for a wonderful week!

On my mind Alot of things.....mostly good this morning....a rarity!

From the learing Rooms Working on memorizing the boys speech for their Davy Crockett projects, Reading, Math, Spelling, and English

Noticing that the sound of my children sleeping is so precious!

Pondering these words Deuteronomy 32:7 "Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; they elders, and they will tell thee."

From the Kitchen breakfast, lunch, and Wild Rice and Chicken for dinner

Around the House Things are scattered from the weekend. Memories of our dinner guest still hang in the air

One of my favorite things is my warm coffee in the morning!

From my picture journal

Summer lunch with the kids from church!

Slow and Steady Get Me Ready...............

I'm Still Here...............

Good Morning Everyone! Thought I would write a quick update. We are busy, busy, busy. Our new homeschool year has started and so far it is going great. I'm still trying to get the kinks out of our schedule, but God has blessed. I need to find some extras to put in. Jacob, Caleb and Peter started piano lessons yesterday. I hope they like playing. I didn't like it that much as a kid, but I love that I can play now.

Liberty is 18 months olds now. She is our little doll baby, but she can hold her own too! She charms everyone she meets. I am so blessed to have my children!

Fall is just around the corner! I LOVE Fall! Our September is packed with Tent Meetings, Homecoming, Chris comes home for R & R, small town festivals, and getting ready for a mini-vacation!

Well, my coffee is getting cold. Hope to see you all soon!

A Video for Chris and Ben....

Mom shot this video of Liberty at her house. Pause the music on the sidebar to hear it. Yes, it is sideways....I know....

A Pillowcase Dress..............

Smores and a Campfire.......

A couple of fridays ago, we went up to my parents for swimming and smores~ I always love going to my parents house. Mom always makes her house feel warm and welcoming. We ate dinner, then got to swim for a while. Next, Dad built us a wonderful fire and we chowed down on smores! Dad had purchased Liberty some camo boots (The picture at the top of the blog....was actually taken by my mother....I didn't realize it was pseudo-copyrighted :)) She loves to wear them. So most of pictures you will see of Liberty will be in her boots! Thanks Mom and Dad for a great evening!

Ten years ago today I married my best friend. He has been my lover, my protector, my support, my world, and the father of my children. He has made me laugh, cry, smile, and wonder in amazement how I could have been so blessed. I am so thankful God created him for me. I could never put in words my love and admiration for him. It has been an awesome 10 years. I can't wait to see what the next 10 years will bring! Thank you Peter for choosing me to be your wife and letting me share your life and vision for our family. I love you!

Homeschool Science Day

Our little homeschool group had a science day. Us moms each came up with an experiment to show the kids. I did somethings with magnets. Miss Angie did an experiement with an egg in vinegar. Miss Cindy did an experiment about taste, and Miss Leigh Anne made a volcano. All the kids had alot of fun, and learned some pretty cool things. The day was ended with hot dogs, chips, and cookies. Can't wait for next month!

Family Game Night

A few weeks ago, Jacob, Caleb, and I attended Family Game Night at our local library. We had a blast! The librarian read a couple of books to the kids, then they did a puppet show. Games were set around the room for the kids to play. They had twister, Hi Ho Cherrios, Chutes and Ladders, a big table to build blocks, and giant floor puzzles for the kids. It was so nice to be able to have fun with the boys and not worry about doing something else. They are having family movie night tomorrow. We are planning to attend. You have to wear your pjs and bring pillows. The library provides snacks. The kids are so excited!

Vacation Bible School 2009

It has been a very busy time at our house. Peter and I were the vbs directors for this year. And finally last week all the preparations came together! We had the theme "Knights and Maidens of Honor". We really wanted to focus on teaching Christian character. We divided the boys and girls in two different classes. It really worked out well, because we could focus the lessons specifically for boys or for girls. We didn't have a large crowd, but we had a great time! We always have a penny march every year, for the boys and girls to bring in money for missions. We have a contest to see who could bring in the most money. The girls lost, so I got a pie in my face. It wasn't too bad, it was a vanilla pudding pie.

Sorry I haven't updated in a while. Life gets busy sometimes! The week before vbs we had a death in our church, and that really took a toll on us before vbs began. I think I'm starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel in regards to catching up on my regular things. Hope it doesn't take too long to catch up.

A Good Read

We have a family friend that is a Talk Radio Host. His show is heard in our Tri-State area. He cited this blog entry this morning and I thought it is pretty poignant. Try to read it if you will get you thinking about the state of our country and our churches. Here

Titus 2:4-5.....

My absolute favorite book besides my Bible is Created to be His Helpmeet by Debi Pearl. I have went through and read it numerous times. I pulled out my copy yesterday to find some answers and realized I had really paid attention to the first half of the book (on how to make your marriage glorious) and not paid much attention to the second part of the book. When I started putting what I learned in this book to practice our marriage completely changed! It helps alot that I have the greatest husband! It is amazing when you receive Biblical truth with all your heart and believe it and put it in to practice, how it transforms your life! There are fifty million books on marriage, but are they filled with biblical truth or man's truth?

The second part of the books deals with Titus 2:4-5. She takes every part of those verses and breaks them down word for word. Titus 2:4 "That they may teach the young women to be sober...." What does that mean?????? The definition of sober is to do one's duty, be moderate, self-controlled, thoughtful, and to learn to make wise decisions and judgements." WOW! That means all our planning, scheduling, organizing actually what we are supposed to be doing? I know from experience once that goes, everything falls apart! My focus this week is to work on being sober. I have my list ready to go, and I will make adjustment accordingly! Lucky for my I have two organization masters at my disposal! Rachel Smith and Jennie Bender are just a click away! What can you do to be sober this week? Isaiah 33:6 "And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure."
