"Heap o' livin'"

Well now. Just like that time escapes and we've crept right into December :) it certainly is a bunch of living these days, while we are busy keeping up with life which seems to be moving so quickly. Thanksgiving has come and gone. Hannah came home from college for a week which was wonderful, and will soon be home for Christmas~time.
As always, I have lots of little hands that kept busy along side of me to help.

The landscape is hard with cold, the trees are bare, the sounds are all a bit louder with nothing to absorb them. It's still so very pretty.

Walks are a special kind of treat this time of year.

Homeschooling continues on, and I do so cherish my time with the young ones. I love them dearly, and find so many of their ways enjoyable.

Abby comes to tell me any of the cute antics I missed that Grady did. She is such a sweetheart.
Sophie dotes on Grady and the dogs terribly. Just like that, she seems a little bigger.
Bella insists she is the main character in any movie she watches.
Grady is just so cute, and saying new things and plays wonderfully and faithfully with all the kids. What a blessing this little 2 year old is.

Mom has been up to continue teaching the girls to sew. They really love it, and she is amazing.

I guess for keeping up with things here at home, I'm finding the work to be constant, and sometimes tiring and yet I still am realizing it is to be understood as part of a life because of the lives that are growing and being and doing. I pray every day for vision and strength to do my part well.
