School Days!

I can't help it.  I am LOVING being back to homeschooling our children.  True, I don't like paperwork, which I am hitting a lot of right now because of having the twins graduate, but that is okay.  We'll get through that.  Then is the plans for the Graduation ceremony and party to hammer out, but it will get done.  It is an exciting time for the girls!  I cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for them.

In the meantime, I have been trying to allow myself to "stop and smell the roses" in our daily lives.  So many precious moments and memories!

Elizabeth is making this quilt for competition in April.  This is an "old" picture.  She has since added borders, and has it sandwiched and basted.  She is hand quilting it beautifully.

Here's a pic with the borders, sample backing fabric, and our newest quilt inspector. 

I think my favorite thing about schooling, or even non-schooling times, is the read alouds.  You can see here what we are currently working on. 

Snippets from a DITY: Bible, faith journal, Isaac's clock craft, some print-ups for Jerusha's research paper on China and some note cards for her report.   

Isaac finishing up his 1st grade language book from Abeka!  It will be time to start him in the 2nd grade level after his testing is finished.

Jerusha getting some math help from her big brother, Josiah. No, they aren't counting fingers and toes. Hehehehehehe!

Have a blessed day,

I love the quilt! She's doing a wonderful job! :) What are their plans after high school? Heidi is planning to work for a year and then decide. She doesn't see herself going to college at this point, though.

It's so good to "see" you more on here! At least I can see you on here even though we're over 900 miles away now. Miss ya all!
