I can’t believe that summer is about at an end! Time has really flown by this year. As most of my friends and family probably konw by now, through lots of prayer and discussion, we are now homeschooling Katie & Michael this year. Melia is still in the local high school and doing well. We started school the first full week in August and so far it is going very well. We do have our co-op classes starting up this week as well as AWANA, so the school year is definitely under way! It’s going to be an exciting year having one in public school and two in homeschool trying to juggle all the different schedules, but I know it will all work it’s way out.
Well, our garden didn’t do hardly anything this year. The corn stalks grew to be about 4-1/2 to 5 feet high but the ears grew from knee to waist high, so the chickens has a great time with it. The okra plants grew, but did not produce any okra until the week I had a huge wedding cake to do, so I did not have the time to get out there. The beans did absolutely nothing. The yellow squash and zucchini did fairly well, but that’s really about it. This year was definitely not a good year for gardening. But, God has always taken care of us and I know that he will continue to do that as well. We have yet to go hungry. God has always provided the right sales, etc., just when we need them most.
The cake business has been picking up and has kept me very busy. God has really blessed me in that area. If you want to see what cakes I’ve been making, just head on over Steph’s Sweet Treats and take a peak.
Transcription work is going. I’m trying really hard to remember to be thankful for the work. It’s really hard sometime, but God has blessed me with work and I need to be grateful for it.
On a side note, my father-in-law is doing fairly well. He’s been having some issues with his blood pressure, but he’s been fairly healthy. He has also found a very special lady that he has asked to be his wife. They have a wedding date set for December 18th. As odd as it feels at times, we are happy that he has found someone he cares very much for and wants to spend the rest of his life with. She’s a very sweet lady and we are looking forward to having her as part of our family.
I think that’s about it for my family. Oh, wait! We are now the proud (aka nervous) parents of a teenager with a driving permit! Oh, my! So, any prayers you would like to seen our way would be very much appreciated! LOL
