Well, school has started back again for us, and as we kick off another year of our home studies, I am reminded of just how blessed we are. God has been so amazingly Loving to us. He has such nice, tiny ways of showing me His love for me, if I am willing to take the time to look.

Each morning we start our day off with breakfast, and as we sit together, we bible study and have a science discussion. Right now we are studying the days of creation, and later on in the year we will break it down and study, in order of the days of creation, the things God has made, but the most wonderful thing is actually being so close to the things our Father has made. We are always watching some bird or bug or spider. It is such a blessing to see the kids faces as they bring me some little creature to check out.

We have quite a few spiders around right now, and it has been wonderful to sit in the evenings and watch them make their webs. Every night they make these amazingly intricate webs. If you have not taken the time to watch a spider make it`s web, I urge you to do so. It is an admirable effort that takes place night after night and the result is beautiful.

God is so Good, if you take the time to see Him in His creations, you will be amazed. I pray that each of you will take a little time from your busy lives to honor Him with your attention. Blessings to you all-K

Just a few more pics


Over due post!

Hello All,

We have so much to tell. I will try to keep it as brief as I can. We just happen to be at the library today and I finally found our long lost USB cord, to the camera, so here we are.

The Lord has been doing great things in our lives. As I`m sure most of you know now, that we are expecting baby #5! in Feb. I feel great, the best I`ve ever felt while pregers, actually. Which has been a wonderful blessing. I have felt the baby move several times, and am enjoying being a part of God`s blessing of creation.

There are so many other small things God has done for us. Wade will be starting a new route at work in the next few weeks, which will allow him to be home much more, including Sundays. Which will open up more time for us to find a good church family. That is a real answer to prayer.

All of our neighbors have been so kind to us. A couple down the road has homesteaded and has taken us under their wing, which is so nice. They don`t think we`re crazy or weird. It has been sad to see that often our non-christian friends are much more Christ like than our christian friends, but such is the world, you know?

These pics are just a few I`ve been saving for the blog. There are some of an old water mill run by a spring, FREEZING WATER. Others are just from around the cabin.

The hardest part for me to adjust to is the unhealthy lifestyle of the people. EVERYONE smokes, and most are Very over weight. As most of you know, I love to bake and make most of our meals from scratch, but as of right now we have not been able to make the earthen oven I had hoped to get to before now, so it has been hard to adjust to that, but I Love cooking on an open fire,(we do have a cook top stove, but I don`t prefer it). It gives the food such a nice flavor.

Now I will go through a few of the happenings, quickly. Layla hurt her finger in a freak accident, with a shaving razor. Matilda fell off the porch, but is fine, then a few days later while holding her, I fell down the stairs, we are both fine. The neighbors were very kind and built us a railing on the porch and stairs. We had a mouse problem in the vehicles, got a few kittens, but we ended up having to poision them(the mice), instead.

The kids start school next week. We have been pretty busy just trying to get a few projects done when it`s not too hot. This week has been a welcome break from the heat. ( sorry for all the run-on sentences, trying to get it all in before my session on the PC is up).

OK I think that`s all I can think of at this point. Hope you all are doing well. We love you and think and pray for each of you daily.-K
