Did You Ever Have One Of Those Days?

Hello, folks! Look who didn't fall off the planet!

As usual, it's been so long since I've written that so many things have happened that I don't even know where to begin. Dangit. Again.

So, I'm just going to jump right in. I will tell myself that I'll be a more faithful blogger. And I'll mean it. And we'll see what happens.

Today, little Jesse is 6 months old! How come it seems like it CAN'T possibly be 6 months since he was born? I have personally dispensed every single meal he's ever had. That's something like 1,480 meals. Give or take. Have we discussed my OCD?

Anyway, here's a photo of the child I can't keep from calling Rabbi Shmuly (no particular reason to call him that...I heard it one day and the sound just made me happy)(have we discussed my penchant for weird words?).

In other news, we've enjoyed several weeks of very productive homeschooling; if by "enjoyed" I am understood to mean "the kids are about to mutiny, but I don't care since we're using up tons of paper and it makes me feel like we're getting stuff done." One of the things I'm enjoying most is listening to the Grace to You podcasts of John MacArthur sermons with the older girls each morning. We're practicing note-taking, outlining, summarizing and applying Biblical truth to our lives every day. We use the text of the messages for our Bible study and for copywork.

Because I don't want to overwhelm you with All The Words, I'll quit for now. Maybe I'll be back tomorrow. Maybe it'll be Labor Day. Either way, thanks for reading and be blessed my friends!
