Catching Up

The pictures on my computer now seem such a random assortment from the past month. With a significant part of the month including time at home, we've been enjoying a bit more consistency in our schedule. This has also given us time to dig into projects that have been waiting to be completed -- and some fun family moments, too. Such as:

Helping Daddy finish up the cleaning of the shop.

Celebrating Andrew & Kori's wedding with a local reception.

Hours and hours of painting for the NCHEA [and NICHE] Kid's Conferences.

An outdoor scene

Making lots of bean-bags for our preschool time.

And hours and hours of sewing!

Painting tropical palm leaves in the bitter cold...quite the contrast!

Warm enough weather for the first water fun of the season!

And attending the Nebraska Husker Spring Game -- the first time many of us have been in the stadium! Dad's extended family have been long-time Husker fans, so it was a treat to be able to experience this together.


The sweet newlyweds

Let them praise the name of the LORD, For
His name alone is exalted;
His glory is above the earth and heaven.
Psalm 148:13

Waiting for Spring

[Confession: These pictures were taken 5 weeks ago. Yes, its been that long since I've downloaded pictures from my camera. Expect more posts forthcoming! *smile*]

During our previous visit to Florida last month, I walked out of our friend's home to discover a crowd of children in the tree! Dual purpose: school and spring air!

Time to work on school...

...And enjoy the sunshine.
Ah! Spring is a beautiful thing!

Happy tree-climbers.

Out for adventure!

"For His merciful kindness is great toward us,
And the truth of the LORD endures forever.
Praise the LORD!"
Ps 117:2

2011 NCHEA Kid's Conference

It's been a very full and exciting week, climaxing with the opportunity to again share during the Nebraska Homeschool Kid's Conference. This year, the theme was "The Great ADVENTURE! -- A mission to pursue. A message to share."

It was an amazing few days with 345 youth [ages 5-14] and 80 staff. I'd love to share more, but for now, here's a picture re-cap of the weekend. Thank you all for your prayers!

This was the LORD's doing; It is marvelous in our eyes.
Psalm 118:23

Its been a full day. And we're grateful for the Lord's faithfulness. Please continue to pray as the Conference continues tomorrow!

"My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9
