He is for me.
In Him, we are more than conquerors.
Over and over I repeat these things in my head.
It's one of the reasons I love to fill my day with music that reminds me of these things.
A life can look so perfect from the outside looking in.
But even the happiest have struggles and trials and mountains to climb.
We are all the same.
Only facing trials of varying intensity and flavour.
Over and over again.
Hope casts out all fear.
It is finished.
He has overcome.
He never fails.
And as I whisper into the ear of a babe so sweet
I love you.
I will always love you.
I just can't stop.
There's nothing you can do to make me stop loving you...
I think of Him.
In whose image I am made.
Who's child I am.
My mother love is but a drop of what His is.
As strongly and fiercely as I love,
It is imperfect and flawed in a million ways.
It is strong
Take comfort, believer
For you are His
Over and over again

The past week started out with the most beautiful day!
In the book, Corduroy the bear is purchased by a little girl who loves him despite his imperfection - a missing button.
Another day, I set up a toy store just like the one Corduroy was in!
I dug these out because this weekend my friend Kady & I plan on taking our kids out to the farm. She has two of the cutest little girls & well, I have two of the cutest little cowboys (mommy might be partial) so we have high hopes that we will get some cute pictures. We planned on doing this a few weeks ago but it ended up raining. Keeler is so excited this is back on our weekend agenda. He has been asking about taking pictures with Kamber almost daily. Who knows, they might not cooperate but at least we’ll have fun trying!
Here’s to wishing everyone a wonderful & safe Memorial Day.

The theme of
the day our life is: AVENGERS…
B and I went and saw The Avengers this past weekend. Since I rarely stray from anything that doesn’t include romance, comedy, or Ryan Gosling, this was a big deal. And, it was actually pretty good! I wish I had date pics to share, but it’s pretty awkward to ask the waiter to maneuver my camera and give him a mini-lesson on shooting in manual. Boo. Next time.
Summer is so close. I can hardly wait. We’re already trying to do summery things around these parts. Like be artsy. And stay up late(r). And make popsicles.
In case you wondered, Becks informed me that the popsicles freeze like this…
It was an interpretive dance, that included shivering while doing a semi-body roll :)

I just love the sun streaming in our living room in the morning. I wish I could just bottle up all the happy. Or all the laundry monster. Whatever it is, I want to bottle it up. Time is so fleeting.
I have five more days with kids. With a three-day Memorial Day weekend thrown in the middle.
Then, it’s back to more artsy, 7am snapping turtle paintings for me. With lots and lots of coffee.

This week we took a break from our scheduled learning.
We started our nature journals this week, too.
