"Measuring Time"

"Measuring Time"
"Time is not measured by clocks but by moments"

I love Mary Engelbrite, she has the best quotes and prints.  Her stuff makes me happy!  Her initials are also the same as my name M.E.!  So I can get her products and pretend it was printed with ME in mind :)
This is a poster my Mama bought for me years ago and I finally got the bright idea to put it in a frame in our school room.  Every day I pass it it makes me smile.
Of course, the main reason I love it is because of the child in the wheelchair.  It makes me so happy to have every moment with my sweet Samuel and our family.

So we all started school last week 
Micah has the blessing of going to preschool and going to "Grammy's" class (my Mama)!  He loves school and to be busy so it is a huge help to me!  Also, my sweet sister Melody is the teachers aide, so he gets to be in her care, also.  What more could I ask for for my little boy??!!  peaceful "moments" for our school time :)

I have the joy and priviledge of homeschooling our other 3 children!  Every "moment" is not always easy and smooth, but who said it would be?  I love teaching my children and being with them.  I am learning SO MUCH! 
Here is Annaleigh writing our history sentence on the board (at homeschool).
Gracie working on her math.

Another part of our school room that brightens my day.  A beautiful painting and verse from my sweet friend, Annette.  She painted it after my second miscarriage, so these flowers would never die and I would have Psalm 23:6 nearby. Another "moment" sadness has brought joy.  Brings me joy everyday!
Samuel and I are working on his reading. 
Precious "moments"

Gracie enjoying her new lap desk.
Samuel loves doing any activities!  Sister "moments"

Love this one too! 
Praying for "moments" spent well each day.

I am sitting here thinking about how much I have to do today, as probably most of you are!  School is about to start back and since I homeschool, I have to get the school stuff organized!  Well...I make a huge mess getting to the finishing product.  So I have been putting it off.  Today I started and have neatly organized bookshelves, but still have piles of old books and anything else that was in the bookshelves to figure out what to do with! 

But, it's hard to get anything done around here because
I just want to sit and snuggle with this fellow all day :) 

Look at that precious face!!!!

I am so thankful Samuel is having a great week!  His breathing has even gotten much clearer since his J tube placement!!  This is a huge praise, since his biggest risk is the aspiration pneumonia!!

Thankful for all the prayers!

(Friday, playing a game together)

Let's just stop and snuggle when we need to!
