What Do You Do All Day?

Here’s an example of a typical homeschool day for us. When I say typical, I don’t mean this is what always happens, or that any of these things will happen every day, or that I schedule things out in pretty much any form. This is just how one day went along. Yeah, I recorded it all. I didn’t record the time it took to record it, though. Hmm. A slight imprecision. And I highlighted in blue the times my day involves food, just for fun. So, for your amusement, here’s…

My blog. Herein read entries related to who and what is important to me. Feel free to leave comments. I feel free to delete them if I don't like them. So there. By reading about my life, readers should expect to begin to see their own lives as increasingly more organized and sophisticated, their homes cleaner and neater.

Why This Blog?

Well, mostly this is for my family to see pictures and read anecdotes about the kids. It's also a venue for telling the story of my struggles and victories in my life as a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a teacher. Occasionally I toss in some weird or touching item that I've found.

What’s Christianity All About?

The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. [as said by John Piper]
