Yesterday at breakfast Josephine proclaimed "These Rice Crispies sure are lousy!" If you don't recognize it, 'lousy' is a contraction using the words loud and noisy. Maybe I'm the only one that totally cracks up at the things my kids say, but I think it's pretty funny! Josephine, of course, corrected her word right away when she realized what she had said. She really likes to do everything well, possibly even bordering on perfect. I have worked hard to get her to loosen up a little. I totally believe in striving to do things well, but I also want my kids to be able to relax and realize nothing is ever perfect, doing your best is what's important. Both Josephine and Brian always try to be obedient, do the right thing, and do their chores and schoolwork well. They are great kids!
I have been happily married for over 22 years and am passionate about the things that are important to Jesus! I am a mom 8 amazing kids (5 bios, 3 adopted from Ghana, West Africa) ages 26, 22, 17, 16, 14, 12, 9, & 9. I also have an amazing daughter in law and 2 beautiful granddaughters! I have homeschooled all of our children for the last 15 years and I love it! I am director of First Class Homeschool Ministries South King County homeschool co-op, work part time, take care of my family on a tight budget, and strive to be an excellent wife to my amazing husband. I love to be outdoors hiking, reading, drinking tea and hanging out with my family. I am passionate about James 1:27 and from that verse believe that adoption is a ministry and a calling and that God cares deeply for the orphans and so should we!
