"Our Daddy may have only had a third grade education, but he could read the King James Bible, " says Helen Ashe. He taught us three things: 1. There is but one race-- the human race. 2. There is but one Father--the Heavenly Father. 3. Never take the last piece of bread from the table. (Helen Ashe co-founder of the Love Kitchen)"

Random Pics and Misc Things~
Awhile ago my friend Kay asked me to post pics of our two eldest next to me to see how they have grown. Our 15 yo has totally passed me up! It still is a little shocking to look up to HIM ...Our Sweet 13 yo dd is just short of me.
This is a totally random post. We are finishing up our second week of Homeschooling. It has kept me a little busier than our laid back summer where my deepest thoughts were whether to head to the pool or the beach.
I often think of Blog Posts I would like to do but by the time I sit down at night my mind is mush.
We have had a really great two weeks. I am doing something I swore I would never do in our homeschool and that is... UNIT STUDIES. We are all loving them! Well, our 2 eldest are doing something different, but I have noticed when they are done with their school they are hanging in the kitchen with us ;o) We are all learning so much and having fun together.
My main motivation in using them this year was to create a love of learning in our older children who came to us through adoption. I could do a whole post on the blessings and challenges that encompasses and maybe I will.
Sometimes I feel badly that my Blog is not totally focused.. I wander from Big Family Issues to Adoption Issues to Homeschooling and so on..
However, that is our life. :o)
Is everyone Back to school?
I hope you are having a Blessed Day!
