Road to Recovery

>> Monday, April 20, 2009

This past week has been a difficult one. Somehow I strained my trapezius muscle, and my neck / shoulders / back have been in a lot of pain. My husband has been great though! He's completely taken over the housework, and taking care of the kids this week. And his parents have been a tremendous help as well. I'm really blessed!

My kids have enjoyed having most of last week off from school. We did just a little school last week, so I'm hoping this week we can get back in to things. I think we'll take it slow though, and just see what we can accomplish.

My girls have been really sweet this week, too. Monday was a difficult day, so I went to the bedroom to lay down while they were finishing up their supper. When I came out a little while later, my children had cleaned up the kitchen as best as they could.

Even though this has been a difficult week, it has helped to reaffirm in my mind just how blessed I am!


Alice Swissenheart

>> Wednesday, April 15, 2009

To encourage my daughter with her creative writing, we've decided to start a school blog. It will be a place she can publish her book reports, write about field trips, and any other creative writing assignements she wants to include. She's always wanted a pen name, so for her new blog, her chosen pen name is Alice Swissenheart. One of her favorite books is Alice In Wonderland, but I'm not sure where she came up with the Swissenheart.

If you're interested to see her blog, here's the link. We don't have anything up yet, but I'm hoping to have her first post by the end of the week.


The Old Testament

>> Monday, April 13, 2009

The other day my husband overheard our children having a theological discussion. Our 8-year old said to our 5-year old, "The Old Testament is full of old people. That must be why they call it the Old Testament."

Seems logical to me! :-)
