Life has been quite eventful lately.
Last Thursday I was able to attend our state's
homeschool conference with two ladies from church.
It was a blessing that Daddy took a few days off
so I could go (though we do love going together, too!).
It was a very busy few days
of getting up early, staying up late,
attending workshops, and lots of shopping down
aisles and aisles of homeschool materials!
What a delight it was!
We were, also, blessed with a cozy room
at a nearby bed and breakfast.
After a long day at the conference,
it was a joy to return to a place
that was so welcoming!

While I was away, Daddy enjoyed the children
and the children enjoyed Daddy!
They even blessed Mama with a
really clean house (Marine Corps style). ;o)
What a blessing that was!
While I was gone, Ally made a cake
for my friend's sister's college graduation
reception that was at our church last night.
She did such a lovely job on the cake!
Today, the children and I took it easy,
as I am not feeling too well
and my voice has escaped me.
We enjoyed lounging around the house.
I have been working on uploading photos
and ordering prints for Ally's photo books
that will be displayed at her graduation
(in only two weeks!).
There are SO many photos!
But what a bittersweet joy it has been
as I've looked through them all.
Life will continue to be somewhat busy
the next few weeks as we prepare
for upcoming activities at church,
family coming in from out-of-state (yea!),
Ally's graduation and fellowship,
and much else that life entails. ;o)
"Blessed be the Lord,
who daily loadeth us with benefits,
even the God of our salvation. Selah."
