Here is my YES moment for today. After snarking and just being grouchy with each other yesterday because they were both tired, my 2 kids are up this morning playing Minecraft together and helping each other in whatever world they are playing in. (Usually they tend to destroy each other's world).

Have a Blessed day!

Aw, that's so sweet! We had an "aha!" moment with our church, too. On the way home tonight, the kids ganged up together to give their daddy a "thank you for taking us to church tonight!" in unison. Cute!

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. Col. 3:23

Church was canceled today because of a snow storm and my kids were devastated. They wanted to do church at home and find some church folk to come and join us. We didn't find anyone to come out in the storm but we did have a nice worship time at home. I was very blessed that they missed church so much.

My dear daughter looked at me with a smirk on her face when the pastor talked about prepositions in the sermon today. She now knows some of the basic prepositions, thanks to our "homeschooling in the car to and from Connecticut!"

New groaner "YES!" moment:

I taught my kids that old song "I love to go a-wandering along the mountain track." It has the chorus I got sung to as a girl "Valderie, Valderah, Valderie. . . Valderah ha ha ha ha ha !"

They came up with their own version tonight while they were cleaning:

I love to go a blundering along the mountain track
And as I blow, I yell this song, cause I'm never coming back!
Valderie, Valder "blah!" Valderie, Valder blah blah blah blah blah . . . "

(You get the point. . . )

Why is this a yes moment, even though it's so inane? I'm hoping they'll be able to turn this creativity to a good use some day.

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. Col. 3:23

I feel like such a cranky mommy sometimes that I am surprised my kids still like me! My 8 year old has been leaving me love notes many night written on candy wrappers that she has saved. I am not sure why they are on candy wrappers but I have found them very affirming on bad days. She writes them in marker so I usually need her to read them to me because some of the words are hard to make out. That is the best part!

I am so thankful that our children are so ready to overlook our faults (until the are teens emoticon ).

I'm mostly at a different stage - but it is a blessing to see that my oldest DD had such a positive experience being home schooled, that she is now home schooling her own children.

In CHRIST I can!

Had 2 daughters (who are prone to disagreeing) peacefully resolve their own issue this weekend. Wow! What a joy to see them being positive when they might have torn each other down instead!

YES!!! (And Praise the Lord!!)

hi everyone emoticon life can get a bit hectic and frazzled at times while the daily grind of everyday life : house chores , cooking , laundry , health , fitness , daily devotions , extra curricula activities not to mention schooling or unschooling our precious gifts that God entrusted us to care for . we have devoted and even sacrificed our dreams , wants , and on some days our sanity to invest in our childrens spiritual and educational lives . ill be completely honest there are some days that I ask myself "why did I decide to do this ?" "is it even working ?" but then I have those YES moments when they say or do something that lets me know they got it :) so please share with me your Yes moment you never know who you will encourage by sharing your moments
