I decided to sit down and see if I could update the ol’ blog! I haven’t been around in a while! I’ve got a few minutes, literally a few so let’s see what I can share!

(The boys riding their Jeep at Easter)

We’re winding down our school year. Can you believe I did it!? My very first year of homeschool! I am so encouraged and just thrilled that God helped me through this year! It was fun! We still have a few weeks left and we’ll still keep up the reading during the summer! Luke has done fantastic and we’ve just had a great year! I pray we have many, many more! Maybe I can get around to sharing what we loved and didn’t love about our homeschool curriculum and what I learned along the way. I really wanted to blog more about our journey throughout the year but well, I was a little busy! There are so many moms that make the time to blog and though I love it, I just have a hard time fitting it in. It’s one of the things that sometimes falls to the wayside! Maybe next year!

Speaking of Luke, he will be SIX in just a little over a month. He is currently obsessed with both Lego’s and Star Wars. So you can imagine what kind of birthday party he wants! He’s such a smart boy! He enjoys doing most school work. Reading is a little bit of a struggle, so we take it slow. He really loves all things science and math! He’s very strong willed and while we’ve had some rough times in the area of discipline, I’m beginning to see some fruit there. Praising God for that!

Eli is a mess. He loves to play with his brother and he also loves Star Wars! He is pretty much his brother’s shadow. He’s still not potty trained and we’re very much still struggling with that. In fact this afternoon I found him outside with nothing on from the waist down. He had taken off his pull up in attempts to ‘get rid of the evidence’. Oh, that kid.

The Hubs is working hard at work and school. He is getting closer and closer to being finished and I am so proud. We’re also involved in planting a church and it is so exciting! We’ve been meeting twice a month and getting to know everyone in the church plant and praying over and discussing things like what we want the church to be about, how we plan to get involved in the community and more practical things like where are we going to meet (we’re currently meeting in a home). The plant consists of families from two local churches. We are so excited to be a part of this and to see what God does! The Hubs and I really feel that God has prepared us for this over the last few years and we are just thankful for His faithfulness to us. It’s really amazing how God has put us where we are and brought along side people who are so dear to us and at the same time given us great new friends, all of which we get to serve with! He is just so good! When I have more time I hope to share more! 🙂

Well, it’s bedtime for the boys so I’ve got a few stories to go read!
