Just the ramblings of my adventures working on the masterpieces that God has given me.

Life is Learning
It is those spontaneous moments that means so much. This morning, I was moving my scrapbooks downstairs to our new bookshelf. (I won't tell you about how Ari already has 7 and I am only to her 2nd birthday. That is a whole different story! I felt bad because I have only done Ryan's newborn book and haven't made it any further in his scrapbooks yet.)As I was sitting there putting them on the shelf, the kids came and sat around me. We looked through their baby books. We talked about how God had made them exact the way they are. I shared Psalm 139:13 "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb." We talked about each of their special traits. They were so intrigued with their baby pictures and left glowing about how special God made them. Interesting how in school today we were going to talk about what makes us special. This was one of those teachable moments that happen that proves once again that the best "school" is life and making the most of the moments.
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” - Fred Rogers
Live in a way that the preacher doesn't have to lie at your funeral.
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor souls who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." --Theodore Roosevelt
Who am I? That is a difficult question to answer! I am a wife to a loving man! I am a Mom of 2 wonderful children of which I homeschool. I love to scrapbook and take pictures mainly of the kids. I have five dachshund that are as close to kids as they get.
