Our first Artist Study


These are pics from our first artist study. I had the boys do Michelangelo, and while the background part was not as pleasant as I'd hoped the project was great. My kids are very much hands on, we tried "ceiling painting" and Fresco. Since I hadn't really planned ahead our trial school days are a bit scattered and improvised. We need to find a structure and hopefully this will smooth the rough spots. I am going to try using Charlotte Mason as our method when we get serious about school this fall. For now it is about seeing what the kids tend to enjoy.

Just a short Hello

I know I have been MIA lately but I have been in so much pain from this prenancy. I hope to rest a lot tomorrow and hopeful be up to more than this. The hubby and I are actually making plans to homeschool the kiddos in the fall and he is getting so very involved with it. I also want to mention that he has expressed some interest in going to seminary. Praise God! This is a man who until the last few years was iffy on whether he even believed. He has expressed interest in going to church as a family and even though these are small steps (I am certainly not pushing, just letting him find his own way)I am so thankful. I continue to pray for God to change our hearts and I am amazed at what He has done.

I have been having such a hard time with this precious gift of being pregnant so I appreciate any tips or reminders. I keep trying to take it all to His feet when it all gets too much. I have been emotional and very much a slacker. I need to be able to get out of bed before 3 pm and stay out. Any ideas on how to stay sane while keeping pelvic pain at bay? I feel like all I do is lie in one place or another and if I do exert any effort it takes at least 3 days of bedrest to recoup. I could really use some prayers girls. I could even use some sample prayers for myself to use in the course of my days.

I think I will try to get to sleep now and do some bible study in the AM.
