Trick or treat

Just a few pics of this years adorable costumes :)

Hurricaine's and Home-studies

Tomorrow will be our last home-study visit. Kinda embarrassing to post, since this should have happened a while ago. But it is what it is. And God has the timing worked out perfectly. It was actually going to be today, but thanks to hurricane Sandy our social worker called and asked if we can do it tomorrow instead. So here we go! Last visit!

As for the was a loooong night last night. The wind was incredible! It seriously felt like the whole house might splat..the walls and rafters were making cracking and creaking sounds. It was crazy. But we  just made a bed in the living room with the kids, watched movies, listened to the radio and prayed. And He kept us. Millions without power, yet we still have ours. We are safe and sound and warm. God is good to us.

Orphan Sunday Nov 4th

Let's spread the word about Orphan Sunday!!

On November 4th, as well as the surrounding Sundays, thousands of events will echo across America and around the globe, all sharing a single goal: that God's steadfast love for the orphan will also stir in our hearts.  From many sources, one voice.

Orphan Sunday is an opportunity to excite family, community, church and friends to God's call to care for the orphan.

As Orphan Sunday approaches, we pray you will dedicate time on one Sunday in honor of the fatherless.

Here are a few helpful and practical recourses for how to spend an Orphan Sunday from Christian Alliance for Orphans' Orphan website:

  • The Orphan's Table -­‐ Experiences impact us more deeply than words. On Orphan Sunday, share a meal eaten by orphans around the world.  Gather with family, small group or church for the meal, discussion and prayer.
  • More Resources -­‐ Check out for other church resources such as sermon starters, worship songs, bible studies, bulletin inserts, prayer guides, and much more!
We are hopeful you and your church family will honor orphans by participating in Orphan Sunday

Beyond Acceptance

I know..two posts in one day? It's to make up for the long time of not posting anything. :)
But actually I just wanted to share this movie trailer with you guys. It's about adoption, and I am interested in checking it out. Any of you guys ever see it? Please don't forget to pause my music player at the top of the page.

Beyond Acceptance tells the story of a family's struggle to accept Evans, a ten-year-old foster child, and their journey of loving the unlovable.

Homeschool, what our days are like..

Sorry for the lack of posting lately. It's been busy around here. Rory has strep throat so today is a lazy day. And I decided the perfect time to tell you about our homeschool day.

So many people wonder what goes on in a homeschool house..Here's how our good days go.

On a good day we get out of bed, get  everybody dressed and breakfast. Then we get out our Bible Verse folders. We made a little folder with memory verses inside and each day we write our memory verse or draw a picture to go with it, just some sort of project to do as we practice it. Then we do Alex's Bible Lifepac and Rory listens in as well.

After Bible I let the kids pick their next classes. Rory has Phonics and Math workbooks then we do some spelling words. Alex has Language Arts, Math, Science, and History workbooks. We work on some reading together and have also been adding in a little ASL class. Thought it would be cool to teach my kids sign language. Why? Because I love the TV show Switched At Birth, of course! :)

After that they get to go play and I work on housework. Some days we also take a break and just get out the house for a play date or lunch..or a little field trip. 

Bad days??? This is what goes on... Homeschool Gone Bad

Because we can all use encouragement

Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
