God Times

I LOVE my time alone with God in the mornings! God has been teaching me ways to serve Him more, and grow in Him.  This verse He laid on my heart this week; "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4

I asked myself, what are the desires of my heart?  My true desires are to be a Godly wife, mom, and tutor.(in that order)  I need to ask and yearn for these qualities every day and obey His commands in each.  I am committing  to pray diligently each day for my husband, our kids and each student every day.  God has truly blessed me.  It's time for me to honor Him with these gifts! 

First Days of School

My handsome 7th grader. :(  Time has flown by.  Nathan, we love you and are so proud of you!

My beautiful 4th grader. Mari Morgan, we love you and are so proud of you! 

My awesome students!!! We are missing Kaci.  She will join us soon! :)

Aren't they cute??? And they're smart too! :)

Classroom Makeovers

These pictures are really not in order, but oh well, you'll get the idea!  I am so excited to have such a wonderful place to teach my children and some others during the week.  Thankful to God for His blessings!

Garage before


Wow! I'm sure our neighbors were glad to see all this go!

Plastic chairs I painted black

Brian's grandfather's desk I painted lime green....not sure if he would approve...:)  you can see it in pics above!

New Buildings :)

In order to accommodate for students in my garage, there had to be something built to move all the "stuff" out of my garage.  Pop sent some workers here to build us a shed.  It turned out great and we were able to clear the garage. Of course, Mari Morgan wanted her own place too, so guess what? Pop built her something too.  :) Are you surprised? 

 MM's "Princess Pad" as Brian called it.

The shed.  It is awesome!

So thankful for Pop and what he does for our family! :)

Mari Morgan's Latest Obsession

MM attended a theatre camp called Aristocats at DFT.  She and her friend, Kara, went for five days and learned theatre basics and songs and dances.  They performed "Aristocats" for us on Friday night.   Their roles were two sisters who were geese.  Their names are Amelia and Abigail Gabble.  MM was Amelia.  They had a great time, and she was such the "ham" on stage.  She loves it!
