Thanksgiving, homeschooling, and filling needs!

We're easing back into homeschooling after loads of holiday fun. If you recall, we had a family of 6 staying with us for a month. We found it very difficult to do our method of homeschooling, so much of it was postponed until they left.  Then came the holidays, so it has been a month since we've had any sort of structured homeschooling. (However, most of you homeschoolers know it's impossible to keep children from learning!)

Just a quick update- the bun in the oven (Molly Jo) is now 26 weeks and some days along. I cannot believe that, come spring, we will have five beautiful children! Five! What great blessings they are. I have really enjoyed listening to their wild, deep-hearted giggles as they play with one another.

Evangeline is growing so quickly- her little feet taking more steady steps.  She loves to help- especially when it comes to putting things away.  She's the go-to-girl when you want something thrown in the trash!  And, she's a big eater- she had four loaded plates on Thanksgiving!

Anyway, here's a few mobile shots from today:

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for, whether we realize it or not! (Unfortunately, most Americans take so much for granted, especially around the winter holidays!) My prayer is that more people will leave behind the commercial holiday and give of their time, effort, and finances to people who truly need it.  Consider contributing to adoption funds, Christian teen pregnancy centers, and missionaries in other countries.  Look around you and see the many needs... and reach out to fill them, my friends!

Btw, if you haven't already, check out my other blog, A Fighting Faith. I posted the words to one of my new songs there.

I love that you're using the cookie sheets as work surfaces. What a great idea!
