Wii Guitar Hero

Playing Guitar Hero on the Wii is one of my family's favorite things to do.  A couple of Christmas's ago, we bought Jeremy the band kit.  This allows four of us to participate at one time.  As you can see, Luken gets right in there.  The kids love when Dad takes time to be a band with them.

Catching Up

Hello again,
I know I have been gone a long time.  My family is in town and their time with us is dwindling, so I am spending as much time with them as I can.

I have also gotten very behind on reading my email.  I am spending this afternoon catching up and I found some great blog posts on homeschooling.  I am giving you the links and I hope you take time to read them.

I also have not been very good about taking pictures while my family is here, but I am going to get better.  I am hoping to have a lot of fun pictures to show you when they leave.

We are having a fantastic time together.  They are going to missed greatly when they leave.

Simple Mom

I am very impressed with this website. They had a blog post the other day that was short and thoughtful. It was about what we learn from our parents and what we are teaching our children. It was a personal experience Shaun Groves had. Here is the link: Character On Aisle Nine. Go, go, go.


This kitten can really relax and he loves to be by anyway napping/not moving.

My Next Fermenting Adventure

Salsa is my next adventure in the pursuit of healthier, easier prepared food. Again I am getting my information from the Nourishing Days and Simple Bites blogs. I am looking forward to seeing how these turn out. The links are below.

Perry Noble: Seven Things I Believe About You If You Are In Christ!

#1 – That God’s plans for your life are greater than yours…and success is not found in control but rather through surrender!  (Ephesians 3:20!)
#2 – That if God brought you to it then He will lead you through it…He always finishes what He starts!  (Philippians 1:6)
#3 – That there will be times in your life that you are going to have to leave your comfort zone and step into the unknown!  (Hebrews 11:1, Hebrews 11:6)
#4 – That we cannot do life alone…and God places people in our lives to both encourage and challenge us!  (Hebrews 10:24-25)
#5 – That God really does work out ALL THINGS for His glory and our good!  (Romans 8:28)
#6 – That you cannot separate yourself from the love of God…He doesn’t love us based on our performance but rather our position as His children!  (It is an overwhelming thought when we consider that we cannot out sin the grace of God!) (Romans 8:38-39)
#7 – That you CAN DO what you think you CAN’T DO but feel like He keeps telling you that you’ve GOT TO DO!  (Philippians 4:13)

Another Day at the Beach

She is not always as mature as she looks.

Playing in the sand.

The other two love to be at the beach.

Sammy was riding on Bailee's back.

Bailee dug this hole and filled it with water. Luken thought it was his personal swimming pool. He loved it. And yes, he is drinking the water. YUCK!!

We love the beach. I wish we lived closer.
