Ecclesiastes 5:18

"...Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8

This is my place to come to help me to 'think on these' wonderful things in my life!

"Even so, I have noticed one thing, at least, that is good. It is good for people to eat, drink, and enjoy their work under the sun during the short life God has given them, and to accept their lot in life." Ecclesiastes 5:18

I am so thankful that I can enjoy the life God has given us with my husband and our children!

Nothing like a trip to the ER to make your weekend unforgettable

She was a trooper once her arm was reduced!
She got nursemaid's elbow from doing a 'drop and twist'
while mommy had her by the hand before bed.
It actually reduced itself on drive there,
and she was fully functional by the time we
were seen at all! But of course had already been instructed
by the Ped, so we followed through. It was very painful until it was fixed!

Fun at Doug's work!

'Shopping' at one of the branches Doug re-did
and kept up for a couple of years

Christa and Doug behind the counter


This is how we do homeschool science...
using a mirror on a stick to see behind yourself,
and using a long metal stick to feel her way as she walked
