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

I spent time today with someone that refreshed my heart. I actually met her briefly at our neighborhood pool at the beginning of the summer. Her husband and my husband went to school together and we just happened to run into each other at our neighborhood pool...they actually do not live in our neighborhood:) Anyway at the time she was pregnant and had two kids that are within four months of the age of each of my kids. It took a while to hang out since she was due soon. She is homeschooling her children.
We finally got to hang out today. We planned to talk some about a potential co-op for the fall. Today was one of those times where the time seemed to fly. It was time for her to leave and it felt like she had just gotten here. We never did get a chance to really talk about a co-op as we were discussing so many other things. It was encouraging to feel so understood and supported! Rarely do you find someone whom you just met and it feels like you have known each other forever.
I look forward to getting to know my new friend better. It is always amazing how God brings the exact people we need at the exact time in our lives when we need them.
“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.
