This week we have enjoyed our backyard. I find I am much more at peace when I am outside enjoying God's creation. The weather has been so very nice. It's not nearly as hot as it usually is in May in the deep south. It's been wonderful.
And, I love watching my husband play with our little ones and our four legged little ones. Watching them have so much fun playing warms my heart and brings me much joy! I want to hold tight to these precious memories and these days. No matter how my body feels, I find such happiness being with the family God has richly blessed me with. I am so thankful.

Our little blue birds are growing. Unfortunately, two of the five eggs have not hatched.We've never had this happen. It's sad, but it is a part of life in this fallen world. What will it be like when all is restored to perfect? Caraline and I talk about that a lot. I love her heart and the talks we have about Heaven.
|Way to go, Ryan!! Great discovery!|
The end of this week brought my precious mother and father-in-law to our house for a quick visit. I had an EGD scheduled at the hospital, and they came down to stay with our precious ones during the procedure. We enjoyed their two and a half day visit- and it's never, ever long enough.
As far as school, we are enjoying our review items and taking a break from everything else- since our official year is OVER!
- Prima Latina the full kit and caboodle. I can tell you studying Latin would not be as easy if we didn't have the lessons on DVD. The kids are learning so much! I am looking forward to writing this review!
- Birdcage Press' Baby World Animals card game is educational and fun! This has been a wonderful treat for all of us!
- Logo Adventures is fun way to learn computer programing language. Caraline adores this program and I can see her reasoning skills are being challenged and developed in a fabulous way. This is another big hit!
- And we are loving two quality products from Christianity Cove. Bible Science Experiments which are so easy to do and the way the authors tie in the experiment to a Bible truth is absolutely genius. We are also working through Daily Dilemmas-26 True-to-Life Devotions for Kids. I can say that the answers to the problems presented aren't always black and white. Even I have learned a great deal from these devotions. Both are perfect for not only Sunday Schools but home schools and just families in general too.
