There's No Place Like Home

We've been home for 5 days and enjoying it more everyday.   Although we are thankful for the ministry God has given to us, we do miss our home life on the farm.

The first day at home was spent unpacking, doing laundry, putting our house together, looking at 5 weeks worth of mail, and much more.  

We got in 4 days of school before we took a break today.  Here are some of the various tasks that some of us accomplished today:

Picking pecan meats, practicing music, cleaning house, doing office work, making granola, playing outdoors, working on the farm, sewing projects, doing laundry, putting clean sheets on the bus beds, and probably other things I don't know about.  :)

Hudson, Denver, Taylor, and Elizabeth were invited to a "nut picking" party.  (Rebecca came without an invitation!!)  They listened to their beloved  Jonathon Park while they were nut pickin'.  About halfway through they had a snack of carrot sticks, dried fruit, and pecans.

Rebecca does everything with gusto!

What a crew!

The 5 oldest are working on a new song of which not even I know all the details.  I think it will include 5 instruments, creativity, and who knows what else.  Stay tuned..........

Allison finally got to finishing the comforter her grandmother helped her put together.

This is our wonderful father and husband trying to make a dent in his never ending desk work. 

Rebecca was Allison's right hand helper in making delicious granola.
The day is not over yet.  Allison is cooking up a yummy soup for supper, Chelsy is baking something wonderful for our church dinner tomorrow, Rebecca is playing harmonica, Elizabeth is cutting fabric, I will be heading outdoors for a walk, and all the men and boys are still outside doing farm work.

Wishing each of you God's blessing on your families as you serve Him.
