"When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him." Proverbs 16:7

Wow, it is August already! Time goes by too fast, it seems like it was just yesterday that I was waiting for Kaleb to make his entrance:-) He will be 1 in 2 weeks! I am looking forward to celebrating his birthday as a family. The older kids really get into celebrating now.
Speaking of celebrating, Lydia's potty trained! Took about a week and she did so good. I had kinda wanted her to be done before we started school, but she wasn't quite ready yet. I have learned that you can potty train kids early, but if you wait 'til THEY're ready it is much faster, easier, and less stress. She started right before we started school this week. Here is our Big girl in a BIG chair at Six flags:-)
School has taken off to a great start, we are only on day 4, but have really enjoyed it so far. I started reading Homeschooling With A Meek and Quiet Spirit, to have an encouragement boost for the new year. What a blessing! It is such a joy seeing the kids learn and master reading. So rewarding to know that I had a part in teaching them! Anna is really interested in her letters right now, so I am gonna try working with her through book "Teach Your Child To Read In 100 Easy Lessons" and see how she does.
Pregnancy is doing great, going by super fast. I felt him/her (I really think her) move a few days ago. There really is no way to describe that feeling..... motherhood is so wonderful. :-) My sister moved back to the area, so I am looking forward to being pregnancy buddies with her.

"The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning." Proverbs 16:21 Is my personal theme for the school year, it is my goal to teach my children in a happy environment. That in all things that I would be able to have a "sweetness of the lips", that I would honor the Lord in all things.

In Love Always & Forever
