Home School Time

Kimmy, our daughter, is a Home School mom of 6 kids, 
(15,13,11,9,6,4 yrs).
She also has a Home School class that she teaches once a month,
 for younger children.

Friends, neighbors and church familes, have signed up their
younger children to learn about God's creation.

What a special time for the youngsters to learn 
how to sit, create, play, listen, share and 
have fun while doing all of this. 

The moms enjoy time with the little ones plus visiting with other moms.
It's always held outside,
 in their beautiful backyard, year round!

This year Ila May has graduated out of the class but wanted to still be apart of the fun.
Kimmy recruited her, as her assistant, 
along with a special girlfriend.

We thought it would be fun to identify the assisstants, by wearing an apron.

Kimmy, "Mom can you make aprons for Ila May and her friend?"

Me, "Sure!"

So off to the store to find the perfect material.
We looked at several colors and different prints.
This is the one we came up with!

Back and front

Ila had a specific style she wanted.
No patterned needed for this adorable apron.
(Pockets will be added on soon.)

What would we do without YouTube?

Kimmy's assistnants, 
ready for students.

I added an extra long ties to make 
BIG bows.

The girls are ready to help, if needed.

Grammy-Goo with the girls.
I found a gift bag that almost is the same print!

I ended up making a total of four aprons.

You never know if there will be more assistants in the future.
We are ready, just in case.


As each has recieved a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.

Peachy Keen

It's time to pick peaches and bless 
family, friends and load up the freezer and shelves.

The first year we lived in this home, we would get 
people knocking on our door asking, 
"Are the Peaches ready?"
And every year after that...

This is just the start of our harvesting process.

There are so many more, still on the branches.


" Kock, Knock!! 
Are you ready Tom? 
The neighbors are starting to line up outside our door! "



Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

2 Corinthains 9:7

Produce From The Garden


I'm ususally up before dawn and "play" in the garden.
I like to call it, Pajama Gardening
Definition: Working in the garden in you PJ's 
before the hot sun pops out.

But Tom was nice and took a picture of me dressed and
ready for my day.

Our family, friends and neighbors have enjoyed
some of our bounty.

I had Bumper crops of lettuce and zucchini.
Ate salads everyday.
Gave away multiple loafs of Zucchini Bread.
With plenty zucchini in the freezer.

Lettuce anyone?


Every Thursday night, we have the family over for dinner.
Last Thursday we ate from the garden!
Salad: lettuce, tomatoes, pickled beets, green peppers, cucumbers and
 for dessert, Peach Cobbler.

I am so happy I planted a garden this year.
Now I know what I want to do next year and what I won't be doing.
I even kept a Gardening Journal.

 A little sad to clean out part of the garden.
I do have some late growing 
vegetables popping up!


"For everything there is a season and a time for every matter under the heaven."

Ecclesiastes 3:1
