Pancakes tomorrow……..

Yep, I will be the pancake tomorrow!!! I go for my annual mammogram tomorrow morning! Why oh why does that machine always feel so cold, and why do I feel like I have been smashed into a pancake. Isn’t there an easier way? Advertisements

My son………

Since I had a nice long post about training Godly girls, I thought I would give some blog time to SportTman. He just auditioned and got a “gig” playing drums for a children’s ministry worship team at our church. He will play 1-2 times a month. I think it will be a great experience for…

GWIT= Godly Women in Training Part 4

I have noticed by far the biggest search engine term that brings people to my blog is “Godly girls” or “teaching Godly girls.” That shows me that there are many moms out there looking for information on training their daughters to be Godly Girls!! I have written several posts on this subject and will continue…

Crazy, Fun times – Wordless Wednesday

At our house we believe in having fun together….so my sweet, dear husband gladly volunteered to sacrifice his body for some good, clean fun. He even wanted to be duct tapped upside down, but I wouldn’t let him. 🙂 So the kids gathered outside, got all our duct tape, and plastered hubby to a tree….

Returning to the work force……

The lazy days of summer will soon be ending, although for us it’s not until after Labor Day. And this year I am thankful for that. Sept 4th marks my return to teaching full-time after 9 years. I was a happy SAHM for 5 years and have worked part time for the last 4 years….

Fresh Air Fun!!

We are having a great time with Isaac (our Fresh Air kid from the Bronx). We took him on an Amish buggy ride yesterday, and went for a visit to the heart of farm country! The man driving the buggy even let Isaac steer (Um, I am a city girl, what do you call someone…

Meme – 5 Things I Dig about Jesus

I am a bit of a slacker here, I was tagged by Angie at Proverbs 31 Wannabe for this meme awhile back and I am just now getting to it. However don’t take my lackadaisical attitude as confirmation that this isn’t a good meme. It’s one of the best, it causes me to think about…

It was less then 24 hours, but it was worth it!

“Honey are you ready to go, we really should get going, remember we need to let the dog out?” my hubby asked me, this morning, as I relaxed poolside, having just emerged from the jacuzzi feeling so relaxed I did not want to move! “Go?” I meekly protested, I just want to take a nap…

Why do I get so nervous?

Yesterday SportTman had a try-out for an elite AAU travel baseball team. It started at 8:00am and went to almost 4:00. If he was the one trying out, I am wondering WHY was I so nervous??? This is only for a 13 u team, it’s not like the Olympics or Major League Baseball. 🙂 He…

Had to take hubby to the ER

This past Thurs. night I had to take my dear husband to the ER. Around 5:30 he started complaining of a headache. And over the next hour it went from bad to horrible. He laid down on the couch, ( which he never does, he always goes up to our bed to lay down when…
