Wow, the last time I posted something on our site was on Jan. 4th. I have been a very distracted momma lately. I would upload pictures to share, but haven't been taking many pictures lately either.
As some of you may know, I am now homeschooling TWO 3rd graders! Which of course, has taken alot of my time. I love this opportunity to be able to teach and sow into my daughters and have them close. Im not gonna lie- its hard! But I know it will all be worth it to have these girls home during these formative years. No telling how long I will continue this path, we are just taking it a year at a time. We are re-evaluating for the next year-who knows!
We are also spending alot of time on remodeling our home. The kids bathroom needed help. Our amazing dad has retiled the tub, and the floor. We are in the middle of painting the walls and sealing the tile. I will post pictures later.
We are also putting up a big rectanglular fence in the back yard for our garden. We are starting to collect all of our gear, and will be tilling the earth soon! The girls are so excited about having our own garden. In science we are studying Creation through Botany. Im learning so much too about Gods design in plants!!
Another project around the corner is to pull up our living room carpet, which has been so abused, and we will be laying down wooden floors. SO EXCITING! The Lord knows the desires of our hearts and He provides!!
We are gearing up for WORLD MANDATE. A huge conference held by our church. I think this is the last year I play a lead role in World Mandate with the childrens department. Sad, but relieving in a way.
We are about to send out the invitations to our daughters 10th birthday party! TEN! My oh my how much she has grown! It will be a "garden party" to help equip Kayla for her first garden.
Emmy is happy to be starting soccer soon. She has been outside practicing and getting ready. We think she is going to be an amazing player.
The boys are doing great. They are really happy to involve with eachother these days. They can also fight too! Whew!
Thats the Strickland update! Hopefully I can find more time soon to post pics and share more of our happenings soon!
