Last weekend I worked the Memphis Discipleship Walk. It was such a blessing to be able to serve on that team! I got to know women from our church and other churches and have a bond with them now that is so sacred! I hope that I blessed them as much as they blessed me! While I was away for 3 days, my wonderful family cleaned the yard and made sure the house stayed clean. They are so sweet!
This week we have been finishing up on our reading of CHARLOTTE'S WEB and the kids will watch the original movie today and I am picking the updated version at the library tomomorrow so that we can watch it this weekend. Amy and Alex have been working on review in math and hae shown me that we are just going to have to work on math all summer long because they have lost some of what they learned and are struggling...oh well...I can help them get back on track. We should finish up our other subjects by the end of May! Yay! That will leave Summer for reading great books, keeping math skills up and lots of fun!
I guess that is all for now. Hopefully I will be back soon so that you will not have to wait another 2 weeks to hear from me. Enjoy your day and try to be a blessing to someone :)

The kids are all tired now and already in their beds. They are looking forward to eating candy in the morning! They gave candy up for Lent and are excited that today was the last day. I am very proud of all of them for making the decision to give up something that they love in observance of the sacrifice that Jesus made for them.
Thanks for stopping by to read my blog. I will be posting a slide show of all of our camping pictures when I get back to my computer but until then, enjoy the ones that I have already posted.

I am coming to you live from our camp site where our family is spending this fantastic Easter weekend. Don't ya just love modern technology? I can blog from anywhere at anytime!! We have been relaxing today and just enjoying the time with each other. Right now William and the boys are fishing. William just sent me this picture text so I thought I would share it with you. Rather small fish huh? I sure hope they catch some bigger than that or we will not be stocking the freezer!! LOL
When they get back we are gonna hang out around the camp fire for awhile, play some games at the picnic table and then fall asleep while watching a movie.....yeah, we actually bring a little TV and DVDs on our camping trips. It is kind of a tradition that we started and the kids expect that each time we go camping we will get to watch a movie that we haven't seen yet. It is really funny when you think about it because our TV is only about 10 inches so all 5 of us trying to watch it is rather humorous!
I am so thankful for this chance for us to get away for a few days but even more thankful for the reason we celebrate this holiday. Just think about the sacrifice that Jesus Christ paid for our sins......He died for us! Is that the end?? NO WAY! He borrowed a tomb for a few days and then ROSE AGAIN!! Thank you Jesus!
Enjoy your weekend and don't forget to celebrate the Resurrection! It was all for YOU! Be blessed !
