Bare, with me as I figure out how blogspace does pictures.the first is of my youngest, Jack, then my 2nd child/oldest son, Jacob. The last one is of some flowers from a tree that's just down the street from our building. I love flowers. I love tree's that have flowers especially. There's just something about them, that just I don't know. Makes them just that extra special, and definately more special. :)

Today's been a good day. I feel like I'm not home much on Sunday's, so neighbors can't get on my nerves so much! LOL We go to church and then in the late afternoon we have Awana, so by the time we get home it's getting later, although we know from a couple nights ago being late or not doesn't stop this neighbor from pumping up the volume so to speak. That was a Friday so hopefully she has enough sense to not do it on a school night. Hopefully in the next month once summer hits, her brain will not leave her totally, we'll just have to see!

I mentioned Awana above. Next week is the end of the year for it. We'll be giving out awards, saying goodbye to many families, having pizza, and afterwards the kids can skate. I know the boys will really enjoy it. Oh they'll have childcare too, which is always an added perk when the hubby's deployed and one's not old enough to be involved with Awana. At least during the awards ceremony I can concentrate on the kids and my oldest son, Jacob. Since we're a Christian Homeschooling family, memorization of bible verses is very important to me, since Awana is coming to the end, we're going to be jumping into his new children's bible and memorizing bible verses. I'm going to set a goal for him to memorize 1 big one or 2 small ones a week. We'll work on them daily and at the end of the week, he'll have to tell them to me without more than 2 helps (keeping the Awana thing going there). Once a month, I'm going to have him tell me all the verses he's learned over the month. My plan is that he'll do 3 weeks of memorization and the 4th week we'll work on the past 3 wks verses, as a refresher. It may or may not work, I'll have to see how things work best for both of us, but I think it will work and I truly believe that Jacob will grow in his relationship with God because of this. It'll also help me because I'm going to challenge myself to memorize these verses along with him!

Please keep me in your prayers tomorrow, it's the 6th anniversary since my little girl went home to Heaven. I'll try to write tomorrow and post some pictures of her, but we'll just have to see how the day goes.
