Fifteen Years

Today we celebrate 15 years! 

I have been sitting her for too long trying to write something short and sweet
about how wonderful our marriage is.
But there are just too many words.
And all of them put together don't say enough. 
Truly, my cup overflows. 
I love being married to this man.

First Day of School

We started school today! 

Hannah - 5th grade. She's held this sign for 7 years! How can this be?
Will - 3rd grade
Peter - 1st grade

I have been making this First Day of School pencil cake for years (it's actually a brownie). This year I made a mini version. The eating of the pencil cake after the first day of lessons is a highly anticipated event around here. Do not ever make this unless you intend to make it every year. I made cupcakes one year and got a lot of "where's the pencil cake?"

Returning to Homeschooling

Hello, all! I have a bit of news...

After much prayer and thought, we have decided to return to homeschooling starting this fall.

I had considered spelling out all the reasons why, but I think it best to keep this short. Please know that our many reasons were positively and proactively motivated, not negative reactions to our school experience. We are doing what we feel is best and right for us... for educational, philosophical, and familial reasons which are our personal convictions and ones we in no way wish to impress upon others.

All this to simply say, we're back. And we're very excited!

Our summer has been full and I have let this blog sit awhile. I do hope to be back here often and with some frequency again. I've missed it (and so has my far away family).

Grace and peace to you in these last lazy days of summer.
