I love spring! I especially love Easter, I love that even the unsaved will take this time to go to church, it may be out of tradition but at least they come and hear the Gospel. It's the perfect time to invite those (who would not normally go) to go to church with you.

I love watching all the flowers bloom, I love the drive to my parents in the country with all the rolling hills, blooming trees and baby animals.  But with all that comes the desire to go out and play rather than do school work, more for me rather than the children! :-} Fortunatly we have a three week break. That helps!!!

Well, it's time to go and enjoy my evening.

YAHOO!!! I finally found a math program for my ds#3 and for dd#5 (when she's ready). It's called Teaching Textbooks and it's perfect for my audio/visual learner's. Ds #4 and dd #6 will stick with Math-U-See as they are my visual learners and need to stick with a program that teaches one thing at a time. I'm still trying to decide exactly how to do history next year for #3 I'ce narrowed it down to a cople of idea's, just have to decide. Money (or lack of it) is a deciding factor because I have to hs on an extremly tight budget this upcoming year. Oh well, God knows and is in totall control.

Time to go outside and enjoy the sunshine with the children.

We are getting into the homestretch for ds#2. He will be graduating in 2 months, AAGH! He has finished his English (Anylitical Grammar), British Literature (ABEKA), he has a few more subjects to go and then..that's it! :(  This is always a bittersweet time for me, I'm so excited to see what God has for them in their adult life, on the other hand I will (and do) miss the sweetness of their baby years, the rowdiness of their elementary and early teen years, and the blossoming into adulthood of their older teen years.  We are so proud of the young men our boys have become. They have such a heart for the things of the Lord, their desire to be in His perfect will is so amazing to both my dh and myself.

I still have four more youngins' to homeschool, Grace is still in preschool so I will be at home, schooling the children for quite some time!:-} 

The other day I was sitting at the table watching the girls do school in their princess dresses, #4 was dressed in his cowboy garb (holsters, guns, and knife included) doing math, #3 was on his bed reading and #2 was working on his presentation for his graduation, what a wonderful life I have been allowed to give my children. The Lord has been so gracious and kind to us, I am constantly amazed at His goodness and mercy!!!
