The Last Few

The last few weeks have flown by in a flash. In school, we have been learning alot...
about magnets...
the gold rush, many trails that lead west, Abraham Lincoln, the Civil War, and many unique facts about some of our great states. In the pics of the kids under the tree, they are playing Civil War. The cars that went down our street were the enemy. They had play rifles, light sabers, masks, and pretend grenades. Some cars would kind of slow down to wave at the kids. Instead of waving back the kids would point their play guns at them. I wanted to stand with a sign that said "they are playing war and we are not teaching violence around here". I know, I know, HOMESCHOOLERS!
We have managed to squeeze in alot of preschool too. Luke is learning to read!
And lastly, we have been watching this robin's nest on our porch.

Instant Gratification

Now that sewing Easter frocks is complete, and the baby is trying to get herself on some sort of normal schedule, I found myself in the mood to sew something quick. So here it is.... So happy with how the dress turned out. The dress is M6347. It is made of a dark turquoise knit. Super Comfy:) The bag is Simplicity 2685.

I just had to add this pic because this is my sewing entertainment.

Happy Easter!

Luke 20:36
"Neither can they die any more for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the Resurrection." Thank you Lord for sending your perfect Son to die a death that he didn't deserve. Giving us a home in Heaven that without Christ's blood we aren't worthy of. His grace knows no bounds and is AMAZING.

Your Daddy
and I
love you
very much!

Oh the joy to be able to sew for my kiddos on Easter. I started the girl's dresses in January. A little smock here and a little there and finally they were completed a few days before Easter!

Knocking the Dust Off the Keyboard

Life has been a little crazy in the last few months. Ms. E joined our family on Dec. 22nd. She has been such a blessing to all of us in so many ways. I feel like we have spent the last few months trying to figure out what our new normal is going to look like. This post will hopefully hit the highlights....
Our sweet gift just in time for Christmas! I had to make matching pj's:)
Our big man turned 7! He is so smart and has developed his daddy's sense of humor..Watch-out!
Princess K turned 3! She is so funny and growing more independent by the day.

Ms. E:)
