First Day of Home School {2016}

And just like that,
summer is over,
and a new school year has begun...

     Thank you Father for these precious children of God. We thank you that this school year will be great. Because of you, Jesus, they have the mind of Christ and Your holy spirit is always with them. They are always and continually loved by You! 
In Jesus name, amen!!!

Large Family | Leaving the house

     There have been two incidents when one of our children was thought to be in the car, but was in the house still, and therefore was left behind. Thankfully it happened with an older child and we didn't get far, but it was still highly unsettling. I had to come up with something to help make sure everyone was in the car before we left...

     I wouldn't say that sushi is one of my most favorite foods, but I do like it once in a while. More so, I don't like all of it and have always wanted to learn to make my own and subsequently play with the ingredients and tastes.

     As a first time sushi maker, I didn't make anything spectacular, but it has always seemed like even the simple ones were such a difficult dish to make. Not anymore!! 

     I do have to say, after making several rolls, I much prefer sushi with seaweed on the outside, they were much easier to roll, cut, keep contained, transfer, and eat.

     When I was expecting our 6th child, I was anxious and scared and my mind was buzzing, "OMG we are going to have 6 kids!!! How am I going to do this??!" Not with this baby though. I have such peace about it and I am really looking forward to enjoying our 7 children. I must say though, God had been preparing me and opened my heart to receive this baby.
