"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

A COOK is Emerging….. (thank goodness!!! (read previous post linked in this one-you'll understand why I say that!!!)

Readers of my blog for a while may remember some of Ana’s earlier attempts at cooking.


But, a few weeks ago, I am happy to announce……she successfully prepared a plate-full of banana fritters & one of strawberry fritters!!

(Ok, I did help a bit. I think the popping & spitting oil emitting from the frying pan was a bit intimidating!)

Thank-goodness there were no “surprise” ingredients!!!

& yes, I do plan on taking advantage of her new-found ability!

(& by the way……my newly minted cook is going away for her first week at camp without us-next week. She is thrilled to take an 8 hour trip away from her family with my sister & her cousins. I’m not sure how excited I am about it. YIKES!!! My baby is growing up. I’ll keep you posted!)

P.S. If any of my blog readers have any words of encouragement for me & how I’ll be fine without my oldest for a week-I’ll take them! I already miss her!
