Oh how I have missed the mental escape that comes with tapping my fingers on a keyboard to share the mundaneness of our simple life, but I hope to be back. We had some computer glitches to which I could post for the last 6 months but I am hopeful.
Hopeful for a new start.
Hopeful to share the silliness of home and the richness of what my Father continues to teach me. So instead of rehashing the last 6 months, I will share our 2012 highlights:
1- Chad has completed his D Min class work
2- Owen played his first soccer season this past fall and loved it
3- Griffin and Tate shared the soccer field with each other on the same team
4- I have continued to homeschool a now 4th, 2nd, and Kinder
5- Tate's eye sight has strengthened enough to go without a patch, hence putting "pirate Tate to rest"
6- Griffin has celebrated Christmas toothless again! Last year it was his bottom teeth, this year he only wanted his "2 front teeth" -after swallowing one while playing football
7- we visited family in NC, at Hilton Head, and also in Gatlinburg, TN
8- Chad has also finished chapters 1 & 2 of his dissertation!! Woot-woot (3 more to go)
9- most afternoons our yard is the neighborhood hangout where trampoline dodgeball or football take center stage.
10- We spent a wonderful day with Great Grandma Emmie celebrating her birthday- just weeks before her death..
a Carolina girl by heart, a broken but beautiful vessel in the eyes of her Father, a devoted wife learning to serve her beloved in new ways, a momma to four children; three with us and one waiting in Heaven, and a grateful girl that enjoys everything from writing in a quiet nook to the swirling buzz of life in my home.
