I recognize that we have been quiet over the past 4 weeks. 

God has been doing a work in our hearts that I can't share right now.... in time. In time.

In the meantime, the little boys have been hanging out waiting for the day they get their casts off.

Pokémon cards...

learning the fine art of stirring dip...

Discovering you can still ride a bike with casts on your legs...

Learning the states and capitals because Mama teaches history and the test is next week...

Digging in the dirt...

Yes, Feet are just as good as hands for digging....

Oops... he's not a little boy....

Watching the progress of the new shed since our garage is being taken over by all the BiblioPlan books...

More states and capitals practice... ugh!!

That's a tiny bit of what we've been up to for the last month...

On Monday we travel to Philly for cast removal.

On Thursday I travel to Texas for the Great Homeschool Convention so if you are in Texas and heading that way please please stop by my booth!!


“Forget the former things;
    do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
    Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
    and streams in the wasteland.

Often in the quiet is when God does his mightiest work!!


  1. Love the verses you chose. Excited to see casts off and the work He is doing! Miss you all very much!

  2. My 15 year old and 9 year old love pokemon cards! Did you know there is an actual game to play with the cards (I just learned this months ago). It's something that has kept them busy and quiet together for extended periods of time, which is a good thing!

  3. So good to see your boys smiling! We continue to pray for all of you! (And hope you plan to come to the Arizona homeschool convention????!!!) :-) Hugs!

  4. HI Julia, I have been reading your blog, and your entry entitled "the silence of adoption" was particularly inspiring to me. I want to know if you would like to participate in a book to help encourage other families who have adopted. It's a multi-authored book. You could even co-author a chapter with your husband if you'd like. If you are interested-I can email you more information. My email address is if you'd like more info. Thank you! Nicole


Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
