|Hailey is the last one up.|
|Oatmeal is one of her favorites.|
|The fireplace keeps the whole house warm, so I brave the cold |
outdoors to keep it fed.
|Lydia helps to empty the dish washer.|
|Little boots wait by the front door- just in case. These boots really love puddles |
and want very much to go back outside.
|This is the table where Mama eats humble pie. No, I never, ever win...|
|The dining room. To honor Pa we framed some of the things we love best-|
he is our protector, he plays with us and he spends time talking things out with us.
|Those shelves really need dusting. Shhh... I will get to it someday. :)|
|We seem to have books in every nook and cranny. We have several stored in |
those white IKEA magazine holders on the bottom shelf.
|Hailey "organized" the trains while waiting for her breakfast.|
|Isn't the morning a wonderful time to start a simple stew (or a pot of beans or soup)? |
The smell is delightful and it really takes the worry out of dinner time.
|We all must spend time in the Word each morning. Because we just can't draw|
water from an empty well.
|Everyone finishes up their chores before school. Sarah is responsible for cleaning |
the girl's bedroom.
|Faith tidies up the kitchen and the girls take turns leading the singing|
during chores. Hymns and praise songs.
I guess rainy days and Mondays just don't get them down...
You may notice a new item in our sidebar. It is the DVD cover for a wonderful documentary made by our very dear friends, the Wintons. We were so very excited to hear that their important film made it into this year's semi-finals for the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival (SAICFF)! That's right, their first film effort and they made it to the semi-finals. So very like them. Check it out here.
