All in one!

My kids playing at the playground. Why is the biggest one sticking his tongue out at this other kid who is a complete stranger?

Leviticus 23:4 "Say to the Israelites: 'On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts
And that's what we did, we had a blast! For several years now we have been heading out to a local park that overlooks the water and praying for clear skies so we can see the new crescent moon as it appears, signifying the start of the 7th month and ushering in the Feast of Trumpets. This year was a wonderful and blessed time. The day began beautiful and clear, but by evening, the clouds started rolling in....many of us were praying for an opening in the clouds so we could witness the renewal of the month, and the Lord blessed us! The clouds were wisps and we were able to sight the new moon! It was wonderful and exciting! We shared the evening with friends dancing and praising God, and of course enjoying some delicious snacks.

Well, it has been too long since my last update...I seem to always be running a bit behind. Atira reminded me that poor blog has been neglected, and it is true. I think that part of the reason is Facebook...which the longer I have been on it the less I like it. I think I like this blog much better, it is such a wonderful collection of stories from our life, a place to come and reminisce about our path.

Atira is very proud of her giant zucchini she is holding. She harvested this one at the farm last week. It has been made into two chocolate zucchini breads already and will probably make 8 more! Our time at the farm this year was wonderful, the nicest people are there and we are blessed to be apart of it.
Atira is learning about ancient Egypt right now, this is her step pyramid she built from legos. Tonight we are having lentil soup that she is making as well, I can't wait to try it.
This is our guard frog. If you drop by, watch out. That's our front door right behind him, he is perched at the very top of our stairs.
Atira with another school project, the Nile river. She built this Nile diorama and planted grass seeds, she then flooded the Nile added a frog and a lady bug and now has incredibly long "papyrus" growing! This too sits by our front can tell we homeschool I think, our education is spilling out of our house!

Jordan is now keeping his own blog for schoolwork, I hope you all are enjoying his regular updates. I am hoping to have him add on an email subscription link to it tomorrow...stay tuned!
