On Faith...Like a Child

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.  Hebrews 11:1 

We have a little joke in our family that if you need/want something...just ask Noah to pray.  If you remember, Noah prayed for a year and a half for God to "break" a parrot and drop it into our yard. all know Junie B. the beakless parrot, right?

Noah is quick to pray and quick to ask for prayer--for "owwies to be healed, for sweet dreams at night, etc. He has no doubt that God hears him.  He doesn't seem impatient with God's timing in answering. a a beautiful thing!

Climbing Back Up

 In attempt to start climbing back up the mountain of blogging, here are a few photos of what Noah has been working on in his "elective" time and a little of his number learning.

Extracting the bones from the owl pellets (that were soaking in bleach water).
Jeff and Noah worked on "assembling" the bat skeleton.

The collection of bones that were extracted and left over from the 4 owl pellets.

Lost in Homeschooling

Well...long time no post!  There is a nifty little graph that blogspot has that shows the activity of visitors to your blog...our graph looks like a sheer cliff!

This school year we are homeschooling Noah full-time and homeschooling Andrew and Ella part-time....and it takes ALL our time!  Who knew that teaching Noah the alphabet and the numbers 0-9 would be so time consuming!  

We are all adjusting to the changes in schedule; but overall, things are going very well.  Noah is making a lot of progress and that is exciting to see!!!

So, our apologies for dropping off the cliff of blogging!  I will try to be better about the very least some photos and snippets of life.  Thanks for your patience as our life is "under construction".
