What's New

Hello, blog world!  It's been a while. We have been plowing ahead in our homeschooling.  The kids are doing great. 

Along with our bible studies the kids have been memorizing bible verses each week and then presenting them to us at the end of the week.  So far they have had up to 2 verses in a week.  This week and next week they're doing much more and I'm so proud of them!  Jared will be memorizing John 15:1-11 and Jenna is working on 1 Corinthians 13 (the whole chapter).  I love to hear them reciting their verses---it makes my heart smile!

Here is a little glimpse of how Jared is doing (Jenna passed on the offer to let me record her). He has memorized John 15:1-4 so far.

We are so happy with Sonlight's literature.  We've really enjoyed each book that we've read so far and they're learning so much.

I've started a new project for the fall that I'm really excited about.  I'm making my first decorative yo-yo quilt (although it's technically not quilting at all).  I got the idea from my step mother-in-law when I saw hers the last time I visited.  I loved it so much that I knew I just HAD to try it.  Here are the fabrics I picked. I'm gong with a fall theme. 

I have them all cut into circles and I'm now making them into 2 inch yo-yo's.  Here are my first yo-yo's!

Once I'm finished making 42,000,000 of these (kidding) I will join them all together.  Can't wait to see how it turns out!


  1. Please post pics of your finished quilt.

    btw: Monday I am finally going to give that butter chicken recipe a try. I will post and let you know how it turns out.

  2. I will! The yoyo's are done, now I just need to attach them.

    YUM! I love that recipe! Enjoy :)
