Life in WV

So, yes we have moved again. No, this won't be our final living space. We are currently in the process of looking for a bigger place, but have not idea when we will find what we are looking for. We don't want to move out of the school district we are in as the kids have FRIENDS!!! But we need a place with 3 bedrooms for sure.
The kids are doing well. They love school. Anna has 2 good "girlfriends" that keep her chatting up a storm. Isaac has his "boys", and they love football at this point in time. He can't wait to try out for the team. One nervous momma here!
Ian is good. Hasn't been hunting much, but he is dreaming of it.
I am working full time NIGHTS at a local hospital (by local I mean a 45 min drive with the weather we have been having). I work as a CNA. Its been good so far and I am looking forward to seeing what the Lord has planned for me there at the hospital. Nights is a new things for me. My body is adjusting, but not so much my family! The kids don't like having me gone at night.
Anyway, we are all good. Living our life for HIM.

Alive and well.....

Ok, so not having DSL is killing my blogging for sure! I am finding time at work here to add this little blurb. We are alive and well. Counting down the days till Isaac is 6 and Anna is 8. Yikes...where has the time gone! We have had a busy and very snowy winter there this year. Living in NC has been wonderful. I am working full time as a ward secretary at a local hospital and Ian has just started a new church work in Roxboro, NC area. The kids like school although are ready for it to be out for the summer!
I will try to upload a few recent pictures and will try to be more faithful, incase anyone is even looking at this any more! LOL!

The deers that got a way!

We have had a turn in the weather down here signalling its time to go hunting. November 15 was opening season for guns and dogs. Ian was treated to a day out with the men of the church searching out deer from 6 A.M. to 6 P.M. What stories he told. He had never hunted with dogs and wasn't sure it was something he would like, but now he won't stop talking about it. He even thinks I want a pack of dogs barking in my yard year round. We are still discussing that. Anyway, he said he "rolled" a doe, but there was no blood trail to track her down and she was gone. I just keep praying he will be safe while he is out.
So, on Monday after he worked all day he came home rounded up the kids and off they went to hunt. They sit in the car and just wait for the deer to come. Isaac apparently was so excited when an 8 point buck walked right in front of the car. Ian shot and he went down, but apparently not for long. While Ian went towards the downed deer a group of men who had been hunting near by appeared, and the deer took off. Long story shot, the deer of a life time still wanders the woods of Oxford. Ian tracked him for about 2 hrs and found him, but he took off again. I guess my freezer will remain empty for a few more days at least!

We are alive!!!

Just wanted to post that we are alive and kicking here in NC. However, with dial up its sometime takes a while to get over to this blog. Anyway, the kids are doing well. Anna has completed 1 month of homeschooling and is doing well. Isaac continues to keep me busy.
I have started baking more now that I have time and a schedule. Cookies have become somewhat of a favorite for me. If anyone has a good recipe please post it. I am always looking for new ideas. Chocolate chip cookies can get boring.
Home made bread has been known to be made as well.
Well, the kids are calling my name. Hope you are all well and I will be posting more pictures soon.

Chasing Toads....

When I was a girl chasing toads wasn't as fun as throwing rocks at bee's nests. However, I am glad my daught has found fun in chasing toads. When we visited our church playground the other day she found one hopping around. It was hilarious to say the least to watch her hopping around after it. She did catch it eventually, but quickly threw it to the ground with scream and a giggle. She thought it was "weird" feeling. I did catch a few pictures of her giggling as she chased the toad and just had to share one with you.

Thinking about School Pictures

Remember the days when we use to have the awful school pictures. The generic backgrounds, bad hair styles, and even worse glasses! I got to thinking about how we are homeschooling Anna and my need for school pictures. So, I marched her out today in the sunshine and sat her on a rock, ok so its a fake rock that is covering our well, but it looked like a rock! Anyway, this is what we got, will it pass for a kindergarten school photo?

Would love to hear your comments...please!!! I am not even sure anyone reads this!


I was going to participate in the Reading in the Fall, however, with no Internet connection for so long I was unable to do it correctly. However, I have been reading up a storm. I think I have read about 10 books to date since it started. The book I am reading now is the one I want to talk about though. Its a book that I had purchased over a year ago and just never took the time to read it till NOW! Praise the Lord that I am, cause now I feel like I remember who I am and who I represent.

Anyway, the book I am reading is "The Remarkable Women of the Bible" by Elizabeth George. OK, so I just started it today, but I am finding so much to take hold of and really put to practice in my life. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be challenged by the woman of the Bible.

I will review some of my other reads from this Fall, but for tonight this is the one I wanted to focus on. Enjoy!
