They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers!

The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

A confession...

After watching "I am Legend" I was, of course, slightly scared. So I picked up one of the dozen or so books on my bedside table and decided to read awhile, to take my mind off of zombie like creatures that want to eat people. Instead of reading two chapters then turning off the light and getting some much needed sleep, I instead stayed up and read THE ENTIRE BOOK! It was "Sundays at Tiffanys" by James Patterson. Obviously, I really liked it. I usually have several books going at the same time, because my mood changes frequently, (the Bible, historical, mystery, thriller, devotional, etc) but I have been especially bad lately. I literally have 12 books on my nightstand right now! I read very little last week, because I had to plan my VBS class every night, and I was always ready to go to sleep. But, that is over, and I plan to resume my former schedule. ie: read until I cannot possibly keep my eyes open for one more second, then regret it all day the next day, only to get second wind when Andy and the boys fall asleep, thus following the same pattern again, over and over until I finally get so tired that I actually go to sleep at a decent hour! After one night of really good sleep, I will then start the pattern over again! Because, I LOVE to read.
 On a separate side note: I have discovered a new love. For our anniversary last Monday, Andy got me a Nintendo DS with Diner Dash. (that is a game) I am really enjoying it. (Carrie, I give you full blame, and credit, for getting me addicted to the DS.) At one point in time I borrowed Carrie's DS and Andy saw that I enjoyed it, and he held onto that memory. I am really hard to shop for, because I am really cheap and usually talk myself out of anything "wasteful".  Andy loves me, and loves to "waste" money on me, because that is his love language. So he always listens carefully when I mention something I would like to have. I am so glad that he does, because I never would have thought to ask for a DS, but I sure am enjoying having one. 
 I saw another blog with this beautiful list a wife had made of things she loves about her husband. I may attempt that some time, but tonight is not the night. However, I did want to say that we had a really great anniversary. Life is good, and Love is even better. 7 years sure have flown....

Ah! Corey picked up Diner Dash for me as well...and I am STUCK on the last level of the "Retro" restaurant! AGH! Is it impossible?!?
*sigh* for all the wives who would love to have their husband's love language be "buying stuff", which we have and appreciate, but not as much as they would :) lol.
7 years for us too in a week...time does fly!
