Nellie loved the insides of the pumpkin!Merit and Willem enjoyed the roasted seeds!
It isn't even October and we have already carved two pumpkins and roasted all of the seeds! :)
I have had peaches in the crockpot for the past 48 hours. Right now peach sauce is in the making. A sauce for pancakes, scones, angel food cake...
Last night was curriculum night at the boys' school. I really enjoyed learning about what they are studying and about the goals they are trying to reach. I love listening to Willem read. His decoding is improving each week. Also, his fluency is improving. Now, I need to hit my bookshelves for appropriate reading material for him. Merit still loves sports books and Sports Illustrated for Kids.
On Tuesday mornings, I am in a Bible Study where we are studying the moms of the Bible. This study is so great. I love digging deeper into the Bible and taking a close look at these women; their struggles, blessings and journeys. I also appreciate the time to pray with this group and for this group.
I feel like this past year has been such a year of growth.
I have also been praying over so many situations. Prayers of thanksgiving and prayers of healing. I have prayed a lot for my sister Natasha. I KNOW that worry and fear do not come from God. We need to trust and HOPE. I want to take the time to pray for friends and family.
I love some of the memories we are making right now. Hazel is a kick in the pants. We all giggle at her and with her. :) I LOVE to hear Willem talk about school! I love how Merit is growing and maturing.
The shop is coming together! It is fun to see Vance's anticipation and excitement regarding this. We are considering doing a little deck off of the loft. The kids already love to run around in there! Tonight Merit and I had a few card games in the shop. The concrete for the floor will be poured Friday.
