Drumroll, please...

I now officially have TWO blogs! Hurray!

This blog will remain (or become again) a blog about biblical womanhood, balancing work and family, homemaking, raising kids and being a teacher all the same time. I feel like I have something to say about these topics, and I know that women in my position in the Christian community need support, encouragement and good ideas. This is what my vision for this blog is.

My new blog, http://guidingtheirhearts.blogspot.com/ will post pictures and videos of my children for my out-of-state family members who don't get to see them that often. Check in to see what our family is up to.

Up until this point, trying to do both things on this blog has been a challenge and had begun to hinder the vision of it, so I hope you like the changes. Of course, you are welcome to visit and join either blog. Thank you, dear friends and family!!

Fairy Party

COMING SOON: Big changes to the blog.... I am going to be separating my pictures blog from my writing blog. Exciting times! I'll keep you updated!

Pictures from Vivan's fairy party this morning. It was so much fun and so girly!

 All ready to go...
 ...and then really ready to go at the party.
 Writing her name on Vivan's Happy Birthday sign.
 Meanwhile, at home...
 Getting face paint
 With Lisa
 Decorating a wooden box with paint and jewels (all the girls loved this)
 Making her own lip gloss, which she almost couldn't wait long enough to do, she was so excited!
The girls
Thank you Lisa and Vivian for a fantastic party!

Superheroes, Hairdos, and Feet

Pictures for the first Monday of Summer Break 2013.

The kids started Father's Day as superheroes, running around wearing Adam's t-shirts as capes.  Charlotte understood it was funny to be a superhero.


Jonah just understood it was funny.


Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona, Jo NAH!


Saving sisters from the tyranny of small plastic trash cans.


Then, last night, Charlotte gave herself her own after hours hairdo.  Adam and I discovered the look when we checked in on her before we went to bed.  It is almost every hair band she owns.


Smiley Charlotte at lunch.


Smiley me at lunch.


Smiley Jonah, showing off his foot, at lunch.


Oh, and Charlotte got new shoes to wear with her brace. She seems to like it, but encouragement would help. 


Much like everything else we have done with the surgery, she got to choose the pattern.
