It's Harvest Time

We went down to the Steele's to help with a bit of harvest last weekend. Here are some of the pics of the boys. Levi had his first tractor ride and he thought it was pretty cool. I got quite a bit of joy out of seeing him riding with his dad as well! Isaiah helped pretty much all day on Friday and Saturday...ok, well he rode along and offered interesting commentary to Micah. Naomi participated for a little while but mostly stayed at the house and played "parents" with Miriam.

If That Isn't The Cutest Thing Ever!

When I got home from New Beginnings yesterday this note was handed to me by precious Isaiah.  Dad had helped him to write it and he was beaming when he delivered it to me.  We are working on writing and ( as you can see) the difference between D and B. :)  These are precious days.  I would not want to be doing anything else in the whole world than parenting these children!

Poor Kid

While Isaiah and I are doing school work Naomi makes Levi play baby.  He likes her so much that he will do just about anything she says.  This is what he looked like when he came up from the basement this morning.

Seeds Family Worship...Spread The Word!

My kids are learning scripture like crazy.  You guys have to check out www.seedsfamilyworship.net.  If you have little ones or know little ones you need to get these CD's for them.  I stood in my kitchen crying listening to my 4 year old singing her little heart out to words straight from the bible.  They liked one song in particular and we looked up and read the scripture.  It lead to some awesome discussion about faith.  I could not find that song online but this is an example and it is one of Isaiah's favorites.  Some friends came over today and he said "hey, guess what I learned today?  Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young.  But set an example for the believers". (1 Timothy 4:12)

We Love You John!

My Step-dad, John, was baptized recently.  We are so excited about his faith journey.  This is the super cool video of that special day.  We love you John!!

First Day of School!

Isaiah started kindergarten this year and we have decided to teach him at home. Our first day was Tuesday. These are some pictures of us at the park after getting schoolwork done in the morning. Isaiah is such an easy student because he is so eager! That makes his teacher happy! Naomi and Levi are wonderful playmates which makes for a plenty of quiet time for Isaiah and I to work together. It should be an exciting year!

Steele/Hill Lake Weekend

Our dear friends the Hills came and spent the weekend at the lake with us. We had a blast! We remarked that the first time we met about 8 years ago that we only had one child between the four of us. Now we have 7! What a blessing it was to enjoy each others company and reflect on all that the Lord has blessed us with in just 8 short years!
