"Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction"-Thomas Jefferson

There was snow on the ground this morning when I woke up....and yes, I did a double take. SNOW? REALLY? Ugh. However, I'm happy to say that it had all melted by the time we broke for lunch. Reagan is outside playing in the frosty air and gorgeous sunshine and I'm catching up on blog reading. In a little while we're heading to Goodwill to look for a new white sugar bowl (I love Goodwill for finding ironstone!!!) and then off to the dollar store in hopes of finding some foam board to make a "REAGAN" central station to display the day's work for Daddy.

Days like today are make me glad I'm homeschooling. Everything went perfectly--no fighting to get her to finish. No frustrated screaming because she wasn't getting something right--I was patient and she was sweet. Why can't every day be like this? Oh, because we're not perfect..that's right :)

We had a GREAT lesson on words today, studying several verses from Proverbs and I have to say I think hiding God's Word in our hearts is definitely making a difference in attitudes around her--specifically mine.

My favorite part of the day? Singing a praise hymn with Reagan. AWESOME. I love days like these.

*And for my friends who don't homeschool, please don't even think that most days are like this...I *DO* get frustrated easily and scream and so does she..so if you're thinking of homeschooling and think that you could never be patient enough to do it, you're right--you won't be--no one is. But with God's help you can make it through!*


  1. lol..yes, kel..SNOW :) there's still some on the bushes from this morning where our house overshadows it and it hasn't melted ..want me to send some your way? ;)
