{Pretty,Happy,Funny,Real}

~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~

{Pretty}

We had to make $40 work for two weeks of grocery for a very hungry family of 7. I praise God for my well stocked pantry and for his provision. The Lord's provision for our home 50 pounds of very versitle russet potatoes! During the week a friend called and offered 1/2 the potatoes she had received from a mutual friend.

"And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work." 2 Cor. 2:9



{Happy}

Yep, that's full concentration you see on her little face as she stacks her rods during our Family Gathering. The twins work on Montesorri type  activities while listening a doing their cute little recitations. 

"From the fruit of his mouth a man is satisfied with good, and the work of a man’s hand comes back to him." Proverbs 12:14




{Real}

"For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;" Proverbs 2:6

Now we are a few weeks into school and the kiddos have their noses to the grindstone. She is doing Christian Light Math which I L-O-V-E, it's a self teaching Math Curriculum and my kiddos (except for Peyton who has Special Needs and does ACE Math) are thriving on it, as demonstrated by their scores on their most recent standardized exam. I like it because it has an advanced scope & sequence and is a self teaching curriculum so I am able easily manage several Math programs. I highly recommend Christian Light Education's Math!
