Kelli is hosting this "New Year Fun"
and I thought it would be fun to participate.
Post the first sentence
of your first blog post of each month.
You can also add a favorite picture from each month.
It sure was difficult to choose the photos!
Here are mine:
~ January ~
Yesterday we saw my beloved off to Iraq.
(receiving Daddy Dolls from Daddy before he goes)
~ February ~
Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks,
and to look well to thy herd."~ Proverbs 27:23
I love relating this Scripture to my role as a mother!
(photo from Daddy holding a picture that Will drew)
~ March ~
A few weeks ago we ordered a pattern
from Common Sense Patterns for a new dress for Ally.

~ April ~
When your child has been too weak
to play much piano but she has a good day
and decides to play around with a few pieces,
what's a mama to do??
Record it (without her knowing, of course)!
(enjoying our visit from Gramma)
~ May ~
Okay, I guess that should be the other way around...
A new hair cut and a new blog look.
(reading names on Memorial Day)
~ June ~
I am taking a somewhat unexpected
bloggie break for the next day or so.
(Ally baiting her own fishing hook for the 1st time)

Below is the song that Ally and I sang this morning
for our Independence Sunday service...
Bring Back the Glory...
(the younger ones found sleeping in my bed)
~ August ~
The years truly do fly by!
(Gotta share 2 pics for this month!)
(the children welcoming Daddy home for a visit)
~ September ~
Oh, for Okri...
Where I grew up, in the south and in the countryside,
my grandparents had a decent size garden.
(visit to the ocean during a tropical storm)
~ October ~
I recently received an email from a mama
that was distraught over difficulties
she is having at home,
particularly with a young, school age child.

I hope y'all are having a good week.
