our days

celebrating 3 years home

October and November have been busy months for our family.  Homeschooling continues well, the younger three are reading more and more strongly, and E is making strides in grammar.  We've been blessed to have twin foster babies during this time!  The kids and Ira have pitched in graciously and tending them has truly been a family affair :o)  Fall is my most favorite time of year.  I love the cooling temperatures, the glorious colors in the trees, increased reminders of all I have to be grateful for and many family celebrations.  These celebrations include my birthday and that of E, J and S.  We also just celebrated M's 3rd year home.  The girls are enjoying their Keeper's group as am I.  I continue to read voraciously, and am enjoying being a part of a book club.  I am trying to be more intentional about trying new hairstyles on the girls, in an effort to help celebrate their uniqueness as young ladies.  I am also trying to be more intentional about memorizing scripture.  Throughout my life it has brought me immense comfort reciting the Word of God, both in my mind and out loud.  My current focus is Psalm 139.  Our days, right now, are filled with babies, listening to children read, meal planning, coffee drinking, lighting of candles and dreaming.  We are blessed indeed.

Hoping this finds your family well and joyful ~
