New email!!!

We haven't forgotten about the blog here! :-) It's been a busy summer...but a good summer! I only have a couple of minutes, but I want to share a few quick thoughts/updates.

*Effective immediately, we have a new email address:

*As I've been praying about, planning for, and talking with Daniel about our upcoming school year/schedule, we have a new plan for the blog here too. Starting soon, Daniel will be giving regular updates on the ministry here and I will continue
to write about the family. Hopefully we'll be able to do more regular updates this way.

*We are leaving tomorrow for our church family camp which runs through Saturday.
Praying for safety and a fun and blessed time together as we fellowship and listen to the preaching of the Word.

To close, here are a few pictures from the last couple of weeks:

Baking Chocolate Chip Cookies...Not only did Benjamin put on a pink apron, he let me take a picture of him with it! :)

We are only about 45 minutes from the Pacific ocean and just over an hour from the Gulf of California, yet we don't make it out there too often. So when we do, it's a
special treat!

I plan on using the family room for all my one on one teaching time this coming year. Last year I began by teaching in the living room, but I couldn't see the children's desks from there and some of them need close supervision to make sure they are staying on task with their assignments :-)
I then switched to teaching right in the dining room at the kitchen table, but then my talking was distracting to those trying to work.
So our plan for next year is to have them work independently at their desks, but come to the family room for teaching time. I've always wanted the big, blank walls in there to have something on them, so I picked up a few school decorations at the Dollar Store when we were up north, and we think it looks much cheerier! :) I'm getting excited about doing school again already!

Don't worry...the family room does not normally look that clean! :) Anybody like to iron? :)


  1. Jaynee I missed your posts so much...and now I have no time to actually read it!!!!!! Yes a busy summer here too:) Today I thought of you as I got upset at my children for their incredibly lazy attitude:) I thought of what you always say...many hands make work light...or something like that...so now my house is decent again:):):) have a wonderful day...I'll be back to actually read your post later:)

  2. Ive missed your posts too! Im so glad to hear from you. Looks like you had fun at the ocean.
    Hope your day is going well.

  3. Glad you are back to posting! I was wondering what happened to you. I enjoy your blog.

  4. Sue from New Zealand~ I accidently hit the wrong button and deleted your comment~ sorry!
    You asked about the children swimming in their clothes...
    We believe the Lord wants us to remain clothed/modest even when swimming. Our boys wear shorts and a t-shirt to swim...the shirt protects their skin from the sun too.
    Our girls swim in a t-shirt and culottes.

  5. I love that you have your living room decorated for school as well...I think having fun stuff like that all around helps the kids to learn even more! I can't wait to see what changes you guys make on the blog!


We always LOVE hearing from you! We enjoy getting to know our readers as well. Feel free to email us or comment here and introduce yourself if you haven't already. Have a wonderful day in the Lord! He is so good and faithful!
