Are You Ready for Thanksgiving?

I am! I am so excited! We will be having a three day celebration! On Thanksgiving day we are celebrating at my mom and dad's, Friday will be at my oldest daughter's fiance's house, and Saturday will be at my mother in law's. I love this time of year! And the best part is that I don't have to cook! :) Although I will probably cook a turkey and small thanksgiving related feast a week or so later. It's one of our favorite meals! I love turkey, dressing, gravy and sweet potatoes with brown sugar, butter and toasted marshmallows. I always put my gravy over my marshmallows. Most people think that is gross but oh my!! MMMmmmm it's delicious! :)

I have been checking in on everyone and continuing to pray. I posted a good post over on Jenileigh's Journey about trusting in the Lord and His plan,even when it makes NO sense to us.

And...I have a new blog up about our homeschooling journey that you can check out at Kingdom Academy. I have someone working on a new blog design for me now and I can't wait to see it!

Much love!

I started on Monday

and I didn't even cry or have a smidgen of regret but boy has it been heavy. I've felt like dookie. Fur real! :) I'm staying busy, schooling our hearts away, cooking, cleaning, painting, church plays, shopping...hardly time to think straight. Tonight it felt so good just to listen to the quiet...well the quiet with the hamster running in her's almost 2 and that's gonna kill me in the morning!

If any of you have ever considered homeschooling you have just got to check out My Father's World take the time to read about them and their incredible ministry of translating the bible into other languages. What a great cause to support. Their curricula is life changing too. God is so good.

I'm still checking on and praying for all of you!!
