These past few weeks have been excellent in sharpening my homemaking skills, and I so enjoyed the children. Getting tasks done & making sure there was always a meal on the stove for the family was a large part of my day's routine :) Friends were always stopping by to see the baby, and so we had some amazing fellowship--a blend of laughter & stories-- and some of my favorite moments were when we all gathered around & listened to radio shows or audio books at the end of the day :)
The children were eager to 'help' with many of the tasks I did, especially when it came to meals. So I let them make Granola Bars, and they were fascinated! I explained the different ingredients, but let them do alot themselves. It ended up turning out great, and they had a fun time as well :)
It's good to be Home, and the slower pace of everyday is quite welcome. However, I greatly desired to move forward in my homemaking endeavors this year, and what an opportunity this has been! Being able to take what I've learned at home and use it as a ministry has been a wonderful experience, indeed.
So much has happened in the past month alone, & I find myself dreadfully behind on blogging, emails, letters...yet you've faithfully stopped by during these quiet weeks & encouraged me w/ your comments! Thank you for your patience. I do hope to catch up soon!
I'd love for you to leave a comment on what you'd like to see more of in future posts...Is there a specific subject etc. I haven't posted about in a while, or even a question you have? let me know, as I enjoy hearing from you ;)
