From Today...

Just a few photos from around the house today...

Jaxson working on some *school work* while singing and eating an apple...this boy is a great multi-tasker! ;) A is for apple....Jaxson loves to eat apples and learn about apples too! :)

Xavier did his schooling today, as well...but alas, it seems I didn't get a picture of him.

The boys looking at a book together...

A warm and cozy living room in the morning...

Leaves outside the window, changing ~ aren't they gorgeous?

Corners of the dining room...always changing. Sometimes just little things, sometimes a big rearrangement. :)

My white dishes are gone. Gifted to a friend in need. I am *so* thankful that God provided them to me so that He could have them given to her. I love how He always supplies just what is needed. Amazing care and abundant love He gives, freely.

In the bathroom...

Some infant hats I have knitted in the past, but not shown yet. :)

Roses from my secret prayer sister, at church. Aren't they just lovely? There was a yellow one, as well...but Jaxson accidentally knocked them over at one point and it broke off right at the top of the stem. He felt awful...but I think the flowers still look beautiful! :)

Days are filled with lots of learning, baking and laundry, running errands, reading and cleaning. We are most definitely busy...but the kind of busy that keeps a family going. A *good* type of busy. They are full days doing what we do best ~ making memories and spending time together. :)

The fall festival is nearing...on Saturday. Chris went out and mowed the field this evening and then he and the children picked up the piles of cuttings and put them into the trailer while I drove the truck (that pulled the trailer).

Tomorrow is Chris and my 10 year wedding anniversary. I am a very blessed woman, indeed. While reading poetry last night, before bed, I came across a poem that I thought expressed my feelings so well! (I will share it just below.) Thank you for visiting. I always enjoy your comments and emails. Wishing you a beautiful second half to your week!


To My Dear and Loving Husband
Anne Bradstreet

If ever two were one, then surely we;
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee;
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor aught but love from thee give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay;
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live in love let's so persevere
That when we live no more we may live ever.

The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee,
and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
~Numbers 6:24-26
