Whirlwind...

Life has been a whirlwind lately. From birthday parties to starting back to school. For those of you who don't know, we homeschool. And we started back last week. This year I am starting a devotional/bible time into our lessons. I am so excited about it! The kids just soak it up and beg for more. Which make me a happy mama. 

{This is a photo from last year}
Also this week we went out and got Library cards... finally! I have been wanting to do this for some time, but was intimidated to take all 3 kids by myself. I wanted to make sure they would behave before we went.  And today they were perfect angels, loving every minute of the library! We came home with a stack of books.

Lastly my poor little Rhett has staff. Not quite sure how he ended up with that, but it has given me a scare. We came home Friday night from fishing and hanging with family when Rhett showed me a pea sized sort of blistery looking spot under his arm near his armpit. I really didn't think too much about and thought I would check it in the morning. Morning came and he still said it bothered him and so that Saturday night I thought I would put a little ointment on it and a bandage. My husband took the bandage off Sunday morning and I was shocked. It had doubled in size. Now quarter sized and really red. When we got him to the doctor she said we would aggressively treat it with antibiotics and a topical cream too.
My sweet baby! I hope it passes quickly. 
Funny how I get as a mommy. I just want to wash all of their pains away. 
I know this isn't a crisp, clean photo, but I love his laugh and smile! 
They make my day!

Looks like some great books along with some classics. The non-fiction section also has some wonderful books for kids. Mason loves to get ones on land and water animals, dinosaurs, and volcanoes. I don't consider what we do homeschool since he's only three, but he learns so much from those and it sparks my thinking into learning activities to do with him. So sorry about the infection. NO FUN! I'll be praying for a speedy recovery!

I hope you're little man gets better fast. We still don't have library cards, I really need to do that.

We started homeschool Pre-K this week. I'm not sure if I will continue or send him to school next year, but we are having fun so far.

I think putting Bible study into your lessons is a great idea! I will definitely do that with my children one day :-) I hope your little baby feels better soon!

You got some great books at the library! That is really neat that the kids are loving the devotional time. I hope Rhett gets to feeling better soon.

That's so great that you are doing a devotional time, it's so very important. "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old they will not depart from it" Proverbs 22:6. You guys are doing a fantastic job!!

I had no idea you homeschooled!!! As if I wasn't already so impressed with you for keeping up with 3 "triplets" and now I find out you homeschool them all? WOW! Amazing. Would love to hear more about that. And I love that you're adding a devotional!!!! You go mama. What devotionals are you using for them? I'm curious?

GET BETTER SOON SWEET RHETT!
