"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

Catch Up!

Sorry it's been a while since I posted......but life has been INSANELY busy.  End of the year school b-day party, dance class party, last soccer game, & lots & lots of yard work.....

Here are a few pics of our activities the last week or so:

 Ruthie, w/ her WONDERFUL kindergarten teacher-she had her "birthday treat time" at school last week, since she has a summer b-day.
Ana's dance class met at the park for a pizza party yesterday.

Nat w/ his soccer coach....after his last game.

My most favorite yard project from the last few days.
One of my friends that lives out in the country gave me several pieces of old wood to use as garden decor.....
& this one had a hole just begging for some ground-cover!

Ballet Recital!!!

One of my favorite weekends of the year-Dance Recital weekend!

Yes, it's a CRAZY busy weekend-but there is nothing quite like seeings your daughters SHINE on that stage (unless it's seeing your son score his first soccer goal......)

 Ana is on the left.
 After Ruthie's morning recital.
 After Ana's evening recital
 Ruthie w/ her teacher, Miss Jennifer
Ana w/ her teacher, Ms. Tina.

P.S.  & one more pic-completely unrelated to dance......but showing off Ana's creativity.  She made this swing for the the "littles" to swing their stuffed animals in.  They have played w/ it for hours!

The 12 Hour Challenge.....

Trying something new......I am on information over-load, so I will be turning OFF my computer tomorrow (& every day after that) from 7 AM-7 PM. 

I found a blog post at Biblical Homemaking that really cleared up what I think some of my issue is these past few weeks. 

I am curious to see if this helps my mental attitude. 

EDITED:  I did ok w/ this challenge today.  I ended up being on more than I wanted to, but over all, my day went much better. 

Get it Done
