Making the Days Count we didn't do any "school"...but, we had a lot of fun! :)   

I used to take Ethan and Luke hiking almost once a week...even if it was a really short hike..we were up in the mountains.   Since March I've been in a fog of exhaustion.  Going from 2 to 4 was easier than I expected in some ways...and harder in others.  I've had a hard time doing any of the extra stuff we used to do.   I finally got the gumption to take the kiddos to the mountains before winter.  Christy has been begging, so we headed up there today.   They had fun running around and being wild.  It was a beautiful day.  I love my kids.  I'm so thankful that I get to be with them everyday.  Watching them melts my heart.   What precious gifts from God!   That's not to say it's always perfect...I don't want to be phony.  I really struggle sometimes...I've got a temper and a mouth that I wish I could lock and throw away the key to.   My kids argue and bicker better than most.  Hopefully, by God's grace ALONE...they will love Jesus with their whole hearts and serve Him alone.
