It’s been a little while since I’ve done a ten things post….
it’s time, don’t you think?

2. A group of children willing to try out Mom’s latest concoction! They’re good to me, these kids.
3. My little guy’s persistence in working through this preschool assessment set of worksheets. He’s been asking for more ‘workbooks’ lately since all of his siblings have one. Love his enthusiasm…
4. God’s provision for our high school girl. We’ve been praying and thinking for years about just what her last two years of home education might include. Something more project-based, instead of textbook-based and the weaving in of life experiences, internships, collaborative work with others, and more.
And oh – the most ideal situation literally fell into our laps! Of course, I firmly believe God orchestrated the entire thing. 🙂
This requires we make some changes (seems to be the theme of our homeschooling this year). It will be so good for us, for her. So very, very good.
5. 10 and 11 year-old girls giggling, laughing, joking, and baking away in celebration of our girl’s birthday. Wow, she’s 11 now…and it’s completely cliche, but where did the time go?
6. The blessing of virtual assistants who care for multiple ‘tech tasks’ required for this blog space to run smoothly! Hours have been saved, I’m telling you – not to mention how my brain is now freed to focus more on writing instead.
7. Science with Daddy! Don’t ask about all the above as I don’t know the complete story — something about ecosystems. 🙂 But, we’ve had a nice weekly rhythm going over the last several months…
…a way to balance our ministry responsibilities with family life. Mom and Dad working together to meet the needs of church and home (and homeschooling). A beautiful thing, it is.
8. Grateful for friends who pray, who lift up needs and simple requests to a God who hears, and sees, and knows.
9. Twinings Winter Spice tea – so comforting, so delicious.
10. The music of David Nevue…listened to often, and played by most of the children. Well, and Mom too. His arrangements make for great instrumental background music.
And you, what are you loving these days?
