Haven at Home Happenings... 5-3-11

Phew! It seems life has been such a whirlwind lately...
which isn't, necessarily, a 'bad' thing,
just a reminder at how quickly life happens.

Daddy was gone for a few weeks due to work
and we are always thrilled to welcome him home, again. :)
Also, these past few weeks,
we have been continuing with our learning at home,
including learning more about YHVH's appointed times
(specifically these ones that have been
taking place during these spring months).
It continues to be a delight to learn
so much more about our Creator!

Learning about counting the omer

Reading passages of Scripture
about YHVH's Torah

Copy work


One day, as our youngest was working through her Language Lesson book,
she declared, from the other room,
"Wow! This Richard paints real good!
His bird looks real!

Picture study has many perks. ;o)

She shared one of her masterpieces this week, too...

Our neighbor's dog, who just had puppies

I just love how relationships are formed through learning!


We have had many warm, sunny days
here in southern California
and being outdoors just cannot be resisted...
nor should it be. ;-)

Bike riding down a dirt hill
has been the new favorite thing...

And, of course, it's always more interesting
when Daddy plays...


This past week, we took a walk up the hill,
which was very enjoyable!

Even Suzie enjoyed it
and liked to stop to smell the 'roses'
(well, they weren't roses...
and she didn't really smell them anyway
but it made for a cute photo of her)...

And at the end of April, beginning of May,
the grass here is already turning
from green to golden brown...

Hence, The Golden State :o)

After a few pics,
the children REALLY loved going down the hill.
But we're not sure if they were obeying the speed limit or not. ;o)

Daddy and Will enjoyed some basketball time...

And our youngest learned how to ride a two wheel bike.
*sigh* They sure grow fast...

She was tickled to ride bikes with her sister...

Yes... busy days... a busy life...
but we're busy making memories...
and YHVH's blessings are abundant each day.
May we always be pausing in the busyness of life
to give Him thanks and praise. :)

"Let the people praise thee,
O {Elohim} God;
let all the people praise thee."
Psalm 67:5

I love your photos, very beautiful!

I was wondering, how do you do your school year? Are you traditional, modified-traditional or all year?

Thank you, Ms. Jeannie. :o) Yes, California does have many beautiful sights, indeed! We are enjoying them while we are here. :)

Thank you, taylormom2six. ;-)
We are pretty far from traditional. We homeschool on and off year round. :)

I had a feeling. When Tim and Brett were younger I was more traditional, over time I've come to homeschool on and off year round also. Fit's life much more, I believe. :-)
