How We Met



Walking up the stairs, I froze for a second. I recognized his face from the photograph, but this was not the same scrawny boy. I wondered how old the photo was that Andrey had showed me, because Sergei ­– most certainly – did not look like he was a seventeen or eighteen year old boy. This was a man. He was incredibly tall, well built, broad shoulders, dark hair, and ample lips; he was very handsome. All of a sudden I was nervous, he was not at all who I had expected. My heart fluttered in its cage as I took a deep breath and walked right passed him.

What's in a name?


     Trying to name this baby is next to impossible!! I have a list of possibilities, but Mr. Chickadee only likes the first name from the girls list. He's convinced it's a girl ❤

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!!!
