Sawyer Is Here!

My sister had her baby this afternoon!! I wish I could be there to see the lil fella. He's in the NICU because he was having trouble breathing. Please pray for him, and Ashlie. She's upset because Bryton was in the NICU for the same reasons, and it's hard. She doesn't get to hold him, nurse him, or anything. I am so proud of my lil sister and miss her like crazy. It's killing me, not getting to be there with and for her.

Now. I know it's been a while since I've posted, and I hate not having my own computer. I'm going to get one soon, I just hate to spend that big hunk of money. I'm a tight wad! Our main goal for pipelining is to pay off all all all of our debt and save as much $$$ as possible so we can go home, stay home, and start a business and let my sweet hubby farm sweet potatoes. That's his dream. He loves to farm. We farmed for 3 years, but it wasn't very profitable because of circumstances beyond our control. We also want to farm off our own money and not a loan. We also want to start some kind of business, not sure what yet, and we're praying about it.

Everything is going good up here. The weather is nice today and I hope it continues to stay that way. We ran some errands this morning and now we're just sitting around while a big pot of homemade vegetable beef soup is simmering on the stove. I miss home, but I feel blessed to be able to be with Rod. Alot of familes have to be separated, and that would be devestating to me.

Being up here has made me realize how much I miss my church!! We have been attending a church the past 3 weeks that we like. The kids have fun in Sunday School, and we really enjoy the service. They have communion every week, which I really like. Also, on Easter Sunday they are having a Living Lord's Supper, where we will participate and watch in the Lord's Last Passover. Since we are going to be observing Passover instead of Easter I am doubley excited.
I miss our church so much. I have so many fresh ideas and am so full of enthusiasm. I can't wait to get back into the grooooove of things.

Homeschooling is going great. We've been making subject books. We did one on the senses and one on weather, and we're working on one on the seasons. I just buy 3 prong folders (about .74 each) and we fill them with papers and activite sheets and drawings on whatever subject we're on. They love it. It is a lot of fun, for me, too.

For Bible we read 1 chapter in Genesis, and Mikaela writes out one verse. I dictate it to her. Then she draws an illustration.

We do Abeka phonics, numbers and social studies. We also do numerous other workbooks for all the other skills.

I love my children, love my husband and love my Lord.

Happy Birthday Sawyer Blaine Huffty.
