week 8

Odin is studying Jonathan Goforth, Chinese emperors, the elements in Science and reading The last American Man which he loves.

Jonah is studying about Knights, and the moons that surround Jupiter.

Olivia is learning about snakes and the reptile family, David and Goliath, and she also made a 20 squares board game from 195BC.

Jeremiah is reading about King Phillip and learning to get done quicker with school.

Thank you for the blessings this week.  We greatly appreciate all the goodies.


Gabe, Jeremiah and Olivia's pumpkins

We had another great week.  Dave and Olivia had to run a practice 5K Thursday and they did great and had a lot of fun!  That's what it's all about.  The race will be this coming Saturday.  Olivia is super excited!

We have a birthday this week for our little Gabester, and our home school group.  Abraham seems to be still getting up 3-4 times a night still and biting now.  He likes to hug you and bite your shoulder at the same time. He's a happy guy and loves to play with everybody.

Have a marvelous Monday!

Week 7

Odin read about Lottie Moon and finished up Dwight Moody, American Sniper and Fearless.  He's doing great with his Math which he totally dislikes. This kid is on fire for History like his dad.  I'm learning things I've never heard about!

Jonah learned about meteoroids and asteroids, Pope Leo, and learning about famous knights. He bought a garmin vivo fit with his own money and loves it.  I's hilarious watching him meet his goal for the day when the day is almost over. Laps upon laps in the house. 
 We had a whole lotta chocolate chip cookies and shared in some baking love.

Olivia studied Sampson and Delilah(love that song from the Dead...played it for her on my many old Dead cd's), learning about bison, and reading The Wolves of Willoughby Chase. 

She also made this awesome proton pac(pictures to come).  Did it all in one day and loved it!  She also made homemade bath salts for people and gave those away.  This girl is always coming up with ideas.   

I passed out with Abraham on my lap and woke up to this little clay love from Olivia on my leg.  

God calls us to love him and love others.

Jeremiah is learning about plants, flowers, the pilgrims and the Indians still

This little star finally gave up his nuk for nap time and taken up the pastime of rubbing his feet on the wall to get him to sleep now.  Some days it takes an hour to nap others 15.  He still rubs my neck and chin to get to bed and I love it. 
 Now we need to conquer eating!


We had free passes to the Milwaukee Public Museum so we went there on Saturday. Teachers get in free so it's a great deal.  They love it there and always ask for a membership. With Abraham and Gabriel we kind of had to go through swiftly.  Such a beautifiul museum.   

Hope you had a great weekend! 

  When you love the Lord, your home is holy ground.

Happy Tuesday!

Happy late (Oct 21) Birthday David!

Another wonderful year. Marriage takes works.  Good hard work and lots of it. Plain and simply.  You gotta be a good team.   But I can say with humble gratitude to God,  we are both working like crazy to focus on God and Him alone.  Not each other.  Not the kids.  Not the world.  But God alone.  Everyday He is teaching us that He Is Enough.  Nothing more is required or needed. 

(Maybe sleeepppp!)

I am so blessed to be on a  mission with you.  I love to see how God is working in you and moving you. I am thankful for the way  He brought us together and is allowing us to go on this wild adventure with Him. 

 What an honor and a blessing.

I’m thankful to God for your life and your heart is still the hottest thing about you.  You challenge me and make me laugh so flippin’ hard.  

 I love you David.

6th week
Odin started reading Amanda Smith, Albert Tindley, Dwight Moody(who we have a friend named after).
Jonah is learning about craters on Mars, studying a lot of bible verses, and Charlemagne.
 Accidental pen wound to the head...

Jonah's volcano

Olivia is studying all different kinds of horses, the story of Ruth, and had made a philistines helmet which I forgot to take a picture of.  

Jeremiah is reading about William Penn, Thomas Edison, and about infections and viruses and how our cells and bloodstream works.

Thank you so much for loving us with gift cards this week.  The kids took the pictures and forgot a few.  They love the bakery there.  Sometimes they like to save 2 and buy a steak.  We never get steak so I think it's cute.  They put a lot of thought into it and we really appreciate it.

This is how we roll.  Doing Language arts on my left and reading on the right..

Thanks Grandma Mimi for the fun outfit.  He wears it everywhere.  He patrols the outside and sand box quite a bit. 

Hope you are having a great day!

9 things

1. Found this in Olivia's room.  Her life is an adventure. 

2. This little star has some crazy battles going on anywhere anytime.

3.  What are you praying for these dayz?

4. Our old painted skateboard.

5. We put away the summer clothes and got out all of our fall stuff.  So excited.  I'm a fall kind of gal.  50/60 degrees all year is my thing! 
It was sad going through Abrahams clothing knowing we are done with baby clothes now.  For good.  It's a whole new world (insert Little Mermaid) now that he is our last. Makes this momma sad but excited for God's plan ahead.

6. This is how we roll sometimes...scaring the neighbors and just being real folks..

7.  Sunrises

8. This guy has been saving all of his lawn mowing money for this day.  The day Rogue one came out!  We left at 730 and were at the store opening by 8 and he succeeded!  Can you feel his excitement?

9.  time with my girl..

we found these for $5 at a green grocery store.

The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with Joy.  Psalm 126:3
