Public schools have missed 20 days of school due to the snow so far and they are still forecasting more in the upcoming weeks. I am just amazed at how many years we've gone with no snow and all of a sudden, this year, we've been bombarded with snow.

We are doing the basics.

Language Arts



I'm just glad to be moving along.

I've noticed with Meadow that since we've been doing so little scheduled school she has started asking questions. I am really enjoying it. One night we orally covered spelling, rules, different words, nouns, adjectives and verbs for over an hour. She has written a letter and addressed her envelope. I'm proud of these little things.

She is also asking questions like where electricity comes from and how it works. I'm going to order a Bill Nye the science guy video for that one. :)

I just like that I can see her learning.

Sky is doing well. Things aren't moving as quickly as I would like for them to but I'm thankful they are moving.

Sky is starting a Jr. Volunteer program at the hospital. It's sort of a scaled down Candy Striper program. She'll be assisting the Activities Coordinator. I'm hoping that as summer draws closer that it will develop more into the duties of a Candy Striper. I'd like to see her responsibilities increase at the hospital over time.

All is well here at Kingdom Academy.

Calling For More Snow!!

As a matter of fact, its snowing right now! The girls are so excited. We usually school through this kind of weather in the winter but I'm not feeling my best so both girls still have friends over. They are running in and out of the house right now laughing in the snow and it's midnight. Not the typical scene I'm sure but a memorable one for sure.

I had a doctor's appointment today and had some blood work done, it'll be nice to find out exactly what is going on with me. That is my prayer, that this problem reveal itself so the doctor's will know how to treat me. I want to feel better.

I'm resting this evening in His peace and His presence, reminding myself that all things have a purpose and praying that I hear what my Father is speaking to me now.

Snow days! Laugh out Loud! Public schools haven't had one day of school this week. Make up days will run well into June. I hope the girls will build a snow man if we get enough snow. I'll be sure to post pictures if they do.

God Bless!

Learning to Count Blessings

Sometimes the lesson is to count your blessing when you can't see them. It's always hard to remember to see things through spiritual eyes. As most of you know I've had a rough couple of weeks. This weekend wasn't any easier.

We got more snow! That is a blessing I can see! I love the snow! But it was also my time and it really through me for a loop. I don't think there has been extra stress I just think I've been weak and haven't handled the stress as well as usual.

Then the lady that I had mentioned that I was purchasing the used MFW from hasn't contacted me. I've been praying fervently for her because it's like she just dropped off the face of the of the earth. That generally doesn't happen once you've exchanged weeks worth of e-mails and set prices on things.

Then I had another lady send me an e-mail that she had a kit that contained almost all of the consumables included which made it a much better deal because I wouldn't have to add to it to complete. If any of you have ever had to piece together a kit sometimes its easier to buy it done for you!

Some how though things have just fallen apart with this deal too. I'm heart broken. Sometimes it just seems like life throws more curve balls then I can handle. Even though I didn't want to admit it I needed to find these kits at half price.

Tonight in church our lesson was seeing things in the spiritual. How we get so caught up with things in the physical: jobs, money, family and the days ins and outs of things. So tonight I'm asking God, what is it Lord that You want me to do? Give me peace and provide. Forgive me where I fail You and strengthen me to handle things with love the way You would. Your word says whatever is bound on earth in Jesus' name is bound in Heaven and whatever is loosed on earth is loosed in Heaven. Father, I bind my flesh and anger and I loose Your gentle loving patience. Lead me and guide me. In Jesus name I pray.

They are calling for more snow Friday night. I can hardly believe it.

God has given me a budget. He'll meet it, one way or the other. He'll either send me the right family to sell to me half price or He'll provide for me to purchase new from My Father's World.

Listen to this song: The Lord just laid it on my heart. I know it'll take a few minutes but I promise you will not regret it. Close your eyes and seek Him. I'm going to seek Him.
