"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

And Time Marches On.......

Another year of Homeschooling begins….

ABEKA, Math U See, & Sonlight. (All great curriculum)

Organized & ready to go…….

But, am I ready to face the fact I have a Second Grader?

Where does the time go?

“So teach us to number our days,
That we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
Psalm 90:12

These kind of milestones often turn my gaze inward.

~Have I grown as a parent to my three precious gifts?

~Have I grown to be a better wife?

~How do I show love to my family & those around me?

~Can my family see what is important to me by how I order my days?

I wonder…..do days like today do this to you, too?
Celebratory breakfast-"Special of the house"-pancakes!
Celebratory Dinner-w/ one 4th grader, 2 2nd Graders & one Kindergartener.......(& one cutie, patoootie, who, thank goodness, isn't old enough for homeschooling yet!!!!! Whew!!)

Just realised-the only pics we have of school starting are all centered around FOOD.
What does that say about us, huh? (wink)
