It's time for the end of the year push

This is the time of the year when the kids start counting down the days until summer vacation. This is the time of the year when they are so distracted when doing homework or chores because they want to be outside. It's also the time of the year when activities get really busy due to it being almost summer. In the midst of this I am also working on the garden, homeschooling, spring cleaning, and the general things that have to be done in a busy household, like feeding everyone. I'm also still working on getting the last of Katerina's curriculum ordered and her lesson plans filled out. Oh and we have to figure out when we are going to pull the pop-up camper out to air it out and clean it for the beginning of camping season! It's a wonderful time of year though as this busyness reminds us that we are called by God to be busy and to fulfill our God given roles. Thank you God for the people whom I love that you've given to me to take care of. Thank you for these six beautiful children whom you've entrusted me to raise to praise you.

Titus 2:3-5 (New International Version)

3Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. 4Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
