Sometimes I let the boys make a mess.
Sometimes I splurge on groceries.
Sometimes I try a new recipe. Recipe here.
All the time, I love my life!

The Morning

O LORD, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress. Isaiah 33:2

Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. Lamentations 3:23

In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.
Psalm 5:3

But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. Psalm 59:16

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Psalm 90:14

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Psalm 143:8

Family Night

At our Co-op family night, the Preschool and K-3rd grade presented the musical, "I Am A Promise". The students dressed up in what they might be when they grow up.
Luke was a mailman.
The boys art work was on display.

Science projects were also on display. I forgot to take a picture of Luke's project that night. Luke did his project on sea turtles. This picture is from the day Luke presented his project to his class. He looks very serious.

Caleb's project was titled, "Lions vs. Cats". Caleb wrote a report on lions and cats and listed their similarities and differences.

Some of Caleb's art work.
We are finished with Co-op for the school year. Goodbye to Kindergarten and 4th grade. At home we are almost done, just some math to complete. We have had a great school year!

Narnia Pictures

Caleb was a leopard in the battle scene. He is on the right.

Aslan advising Peter on battle plans.

Caleb as the Professor with the Pevensie children. Here he is saying the last line of the play, "Once a king or queen of Narnia, always a king or queen of Narnia." This picture is from the last night and he is supposed to be wearing glasses, but someone backstage stepped on them and broke them.

The Narnia play was spectacular! Caleb was amazing as the Professor and the leopard. We are so proud of him. The kids, drama teachers, and Moms worked so hard, and it was all worth it. I am amazed at the talented moms at our co-op that worked together to put this on. We were blessed to be a part of this production.
Long Live King Aslan!

I love my mother as the trees love water and sunshine - she helps me grow, prosper, and reach great heights.
~Terri Guillemets

Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over.
~George Cooper

Happy Mother's Day Mom!

A Few Things

Aslan is on the move!
1. The Chronicles of Narnia is being presented by Co-op's 4th-7th graders. Starring our own Caleb as the Professor and a Leopard in the battle scene. The kids are presenting the Magician's Nephew for Act 1 and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe for Act 2. Caleb and the cast have been working so hard with extensive practices. I can tell you it is going to be amazing! One of the Dads at Co-op and local radio personality, Jeff Roberts, is playing the part of Aslan. The kids love Jeff and he is outstanding as Aslan. Can you tell I am excited about this? We have the White Witch, beavers, a centaur (yes, the drama teacher is amazing and built a centaur costume), a dwarf, Maugrim, the Pevensie children, and a wardrobe, a sledge, the stone table, a lamp post and more. We have three performances this week on Tuesday and Thursday. I am so proud of Caleb for his hard work.

2. The pet rats are back visiting our house. Luke's science class at Co-op has two rats for a class pet. They really are sweet, but I still can not touch them. Thank goodness for dear hubby who will get them out of the cage.  Oh, and my skilled husband was awarded Employee of the Month on Friday and received $50 and a parking space in the parking garage for the next month. He can do anything!

3. Is he not the cutest? Luke picked out this outfit and was ready to play soccer. I love him!

4. My garden is growing. I have tomatoes! Well, green tomatoes. I am so loving my garden!
