I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! 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! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Green eggs, Green grass, Growing boys

If you have been around long, you might remember our amazing Green Eggs and Ham. Canaan certainly remembers it, fondly.
 So he insisted on making it again.

 What is cool (or perhaps horrifying) is that he is entirely capable of making it by himself now.

 He even made them into a smily face. 
He opted for cinnamon ham rather then green. One green food per day was enough.
 And didn't leave tooo much of a mess behind.
 That is one happy cook! 

I was out of commission on Friday and Saturday. Especially Friday. The boys got out a cookie sheet, and placed a homemade peanut butter and jelly sandwich, mug of milk and two organic oreo's.
 Fresh water? Check
 Advil? Check
 Reading Material? Check
 They are completely capable of taking care of me!

 They were slightly bored, since I wasn't much fun, so I let them watch Ice Age 2. When that was done, I challenged them to create a Wooly mammoth out of K'nex or Lego. They brought me many creations after that!

 Another big event Canaan had recently is that he had his first "real" lawn mowing experience.

 Line it up straight
 Daddy, marshalling him...
 back up the hill!

He didn't actually do a whole lot. But, he and his brother dug out the gardening gloves and helped me do some weeding instead.
It was a beautiful, breezy day in June (before this atrocious heat wave!) 
 Very breezy...(That is my hair in the picture!)
 There we go! A nice, non-hairy picture of gardener Zion. 
And Daisy was the encourager. When it was my turn to mow, she followed me almost the whole time, barking if she got to close to the mower, but refusing to leave me alone with that terrible machine! So funny!

 Life is beautiful. 
Now all that a mom could wish for is the hands of time to slow down.... just a little please?
