The Joy of Reading

Our homeschool has been very "off" lately. With Pops having a hernia, multiple night meetings the past few weeks and Autumn up every hour or every other hour at night have compounded our normal chaotic busy weeks.

I've failed in my prayer challenge and have had some "low" moments thinking, "I just can't _____!" And if it had not been for the grace of God, I wouldn't be able to stand. Yes, among other graces, His Word has definitely sustained and held and strenghtened me.

One thing I have done more of this week is read to the kiddos. What a joy! I mean, I'll always read something to them in the course of a day. But this week we've been reading a lot more. And I love it!

And they do too!  See them enjoying books on their own?!

And even Paloma gets excited about it!And if you're interested in books we are enjoying, check out our TWK Book Recs page!

Saraina's New Song

Today our songbird Saraina was singing her own song this afternoon. She does this often. You know, making up the lyrics as she goes but singing really loudly as if it were a real song. I was listening and watching her as I was feeding Autumn and this is a bit of her song:

O Jesus made the waters and the sea.
Jesus made everything in the world.
Jesus created man.
He made them male and email.

Saraina-girl, I love you and your songs!

Prayer Challenge and the New Blog

In case you're wanting to join me in our Whitney Adventures, here's the new blog address. As I mentioned before, this new blog will be more of those random, personal posts that are part of our Whitney adventures (hence the name).

The first entry there is about the challenge to pray for your husband I mentioned in my last post.

And happy February!
