"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

Snakes Galore......(Yes....*shudder*....I DID say SNAKES!)

There are days I wonder about my parenting…..

I mean, I fail day in & day out.

But, I think I should get MAJOR brownie points for this……

(No, I did NOT touch the nasty thing-but HE did, & HE loves it!)

Yes, there is a story here, too.

Remember a few weeks ago-my encounter with the stinging pests that inhabit our backyard?

Well, we went from stinging pests to snakeS. Yes, that is plural. (I have counted at least 6-7 at a time)

My kids (at least the younger 2) are petrified of them-& Ana & I would prefer that mama had found someone else’s backyard to be perfect for hatching babies.

She still seems to think our backyard is the best, too-& Nat almost stepped on her the other day.

Now, neither one of them want to have ANYTHING to do with the backyard-& quite frankly, I don’t blame them.

BUT, Nat had no qualms whatsoever about picking up a baby snake skin & chasing his sister with it. So like a boy!

Anyway, we had a friend come over & identify them as garter snakes, so at least they aren’t poisonous! (& I just have to say-they look NOTHING like the garter snakes in Kansas-where I grew up! Why can’t they look the same everywhere? I wouldn’t have worried at all. But I still HATE them!)

Now-because I can’t take a post with only those awful pics on it, here’s a cute one of Nat…..into more trouble, for sure…….but at least there’s no nasty reptiles in it!!!
