New School Year 2010

It's a new school year and this past Tuesday was our first day!!

Crystal grade 5
Abigail grade 2
Richard grade K

This is as dressed up as they wanted, pick my battles right...there was no tears from Richard getting on the bus and leaving me for the whole day, he waved to us with a huge smile on his face sitting with his Sisters as the bus drove away.

All day long the house was to quiet and I felt like there was something I was forgetting...Any helpful tips to get used to this empty house feeling?

Practice for Real Life

This Summer Crystal was busy with 4H and volunteered at Scholl's Veterinary Clinic, Her best friend's Mom owns the office and agreed to let Crystal shadow her.

Here they are, 2 best friends ready to help in Surgery...Crystal did watch some kitties getting Spayed and it never bothered her and asked many a good question from I have been told.

Here's a lil Hamster that she is trying to bring home...UuMMM...not going to happen!!

It's been a great Summer and she learned some Science plus it has spurred her on to study hard this new year so she can do it again next Summer!

Can You See It ? Our New Find For Winter!

I'm so Sorry this is a dark pic but it's raining cats and dogs here right now!

We drove by this huge sled for sale for $20.00, We offered $15.00 since that's what we had after grabbing ice cream and they accepted! It's a lovely old wooden runner sled about as tall as me and was made in Medina OH!

OH the fun we will have this Winter sledding down our hill!

*Rooster* Blog Party 2

We have a wonderful country kitchen with a growing Rooster theme. My collection is fairly small compared to many in this get-together but they found a good home in this lil country house.

Roosters are even starting to move into the laundry room!

I'm joining a Rooster Blog party over at BELLA VISTA   Go take a peek at all the handsome Roosters that others are sharing! I'm sure enjoying the beauties!

~Angel Song- A Book Review~

When Annie Fletcher returns to Charleston to see her younger sister, Sarah, receive her master’s degree, she finds herself riding in the back of an ambulance, watching helplessly as Sarah fights for life. During the ride, Sarah appears to talk to someone who is not there, humming a melody Annie has never heard before.
Neighbor Ethan McKinney lends a shoulder when Sarah unexpectedly dies. And as a carpenter, Ethan volunteers to help Annie get the Fletcher family home into shape for selling. Ethan’s presence is distracting, but what troubles Annie is her neighbor Tammy’s 12-year-old son. Keith has Down Syndrome and the guile to believe he can see and hear angels.
God begins to reveal Himself to Annie – both in her newfound friends and through heart-rending and clearly supernatural events. Annie discovers faith in God, finally experiencing the comfort that His angels really do surround us.

I found myself caught up in this story from chapter 1 and usually it will take me about 50 pages into a book for me to decide if I like it or not. It's a sweetly sad yet strangely uplifting read that makes you think and wonder about Angels and what's after this life. Parts of this book made me want to yell at Annie, she needs to react to situations differently.

Do you find yourself wanting to help the main character out in a book, give them advice or just yell at them...It can't just be me right?

I was provided this book by BookSneeze for review.
