One Big Adventure
An opportunity to log in some of the thoughts and activities of our homeschooling family of eight. We love books and good food and aspire to a Christ-centered, multi-generational, agrarian life.

Safe, sound and busy

It took a little longer than I had hoped to get loaded up and head home. After picking up James' prescriptions, packing the rest of our stuff and loading up the car, we finally pulled out of the parking garage at about 9:45 p.m. We ended up going the back way and the roads were open and lighted well enough. We made good time, arriving home by about 12:15.

While we had intended to go to church Sunday we had a little difficulty pulling it all together, so Vern decided we'd stay home. We had a great time singing hymns--I think everyone picked two, so that's 16 altogether--and Vern read to us from Psalms.

The folks we are living with have gone away to the coast for a family vacation this week. We have plenty to do around here. Last week the plumber and electrician finished their rough-ins. Saturday the insulation guys got started. Today HVAC rough-in and insulation will be finished and the drywall team is planning to set up their stuff. The windows and last door are supposed to get put in this evening and tomorrow we should have drywall.

Then we will need to step up to the plate with painting, trimwork and other finishing. Please pray for us that we would know our limits and do well at what we do. Especially that God would be glorified in what we do.

Thanks for stopping by.

Love, Stephanie
