Homeschool Photos...

Each year we try to get annual photos of the children
that represent their current age and "grade"
(what many of us grew up calling "school pictures").
We enjoy these precious keepsakes
and delight in sharing them with friends and family.

Last week, when we were awaiting Daddy's plane,
we found a park to enjoy.
In that park was a tree that had a stump next to it,
which we, conveniently, used as a photo prop. ;o)
Though no one was really 'prepared' for photos,
we were glad they turned out pretty well.

This year I, also, put them together as collages...

Carolynne ~ age 4 ("preschool")

Beth ~ age 5 ("kindergarten")

Will ~ age 9 ("4th grade")

Ally ~ age 15 ("11th grade")

"That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth;
that our daughters may be as corner stones,
polished after the similitude of a palace:"

~ Psalm 144:12

What a beautiful bunch. All four of them are just beautiful.

As I keep up with your blog, I also have to comment about Ally. As a youth pastor's wife I'm close to a lot of teenage girls from all walks of life. Ally is so amazing. What a glory to her Saviour.

I happened upon your blog a few weeks ago by a series of links (isn't that funny how that happens!) And I just wanted to say how beautiful your girls always look, and what a sweet inspiration your blog is.

Hello, your children are so very sweet!
I have 3 of them myself, 2-boys and 1-girl
when I look at your girls In there lil dresses I just well up with tears, I wished my mother would of dressed me In modest lil dresses and kept me from the bad things of this world...I feel like my childhood has been torn from me, but god Is good!
and I still can teach my children the right way to live!
you are such a blessing to me!

Tabby ~ Thank you for visiting me and for leaving your comment.
I, too, was not raised in dresses only or in a home that was serving God, and there are many sins/mistakes in my past that I have had to deal with, as well, though wearing dresses, etc... would not have necessarily kept me from sin. But what a blessing and encouragement to know that we have a Heavenly Father that is All-Forgiving and that when we love Him, He can use those things, those sins from the past, for His good! What a blessing it is when we are able to be completely forgiven and restored to our Heavenly Father. Though, overall, I would love to have NOT sinned in my past, I am SO thankful that I have been forgiven, have been able to learn from my sins and move on, aiming to serve Him, walk in righteousness and raise our children for Him.
There is great freedom in His forgiveness. Praise the Lord for that.
Prayed for you, friend, and hope to hear from you, again.
