I am doing a quick "check-in," since I have been MIA this week.
I am headed out of town today to attend my first ever homeschool conference--it's official, we are a "weird" homeschooling family. But I am so excited to go, mainly because it's also my first ever "girl's trip," with my mom friends. It takes me back to college. Four of us are piling into the mini-van and hitting the road, so there are some obvious differences from college--mini van, homeschool conference, etc. etc., but you get the idea ;) And Scott's parents--Pop and Mae Mae--have graciously agreed to stay with Ada and John today while Scott is at work (they will be here in just a couple of hours), and they will stay through Saturday to help Scott out and visit with the kiddos. Ada and John are fired up.
Anyway, I will do a quick update, list style.
1. Are you loving this weather? I feel like we just skipped winter this year, which is A-okay with me.
Respectable Sins by Jerry Bridges, so convicting. I highly recommend it. It discusses those sins that we just accept as normal. That we have become so accustomed to that we don't even flinch when they are a part of our daily lives--things like frustration and anxiety.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn--for the first time, I read this, and I loved it. If you haven't already read this, go for it. It's an easy read too.
We are studying Colossians in my discipleship group, and we are using the MacArthur commentary. Good stuff.
What are you reading? I always love a new book to read.
5. On that note, we are praying and making big decisions about where will be in August when our lease runs out. Scott continues to get home very late and spend so much money on gasoline, so we are sadly discussing whether we need to stay where we are or move to the north side. We have made a home here over the past four years, so it's not an easy decision to make. We are praying lots for clear direction.
So, there you go. I will, one day, blog about John's birthday. Blogger is driving me crazy with the pictures and posting them sideways, so every time I have tried to blog about it, I end up very frustrated with the computer (speaking of sin). But I will figure it out, and post about his birthday party. One day.
