So I Have Been Busy . . .

I have started getting comments from my own children about the lack of blog posts. Since this blog is pretty much their life, they are not usually too excited one way or another. If they are noticing the lack of posts, then it's time to get back at it.

To say 'I have been busy' is sort of like saying 'I'm tired'. Everybody I know is busy and tired -- some far more than I am. The truth is more that I haven't made time to get a blog post done and posted. I have not put the time into blogging, but time has been spent in these other ways:

Running times.
 
These three brothers ran a 5K this summer. Wokelle's first, but he came in at 30 minutes -- not bad!  It was so good to see them running together.
 


Braydon has joined the Cross Country team at the local high school.  It has been a great experience for him to be part of a team.
 
Travel Times

 
I am always thankful for how my children get along together when we are packed in the car. We took off for a wedding in Michigan.

 
Between the wedding excitement we took time to visit the Locks at the "Soo" -- Saulte Saint Marie.


Game times
 
Many games have been played -- chess being a favorite.


Chicken Times
 
The flock has been growing under Adela's great care.  She recently lost one chicken who was egg bound and didn't survive.  It is all part of the learning experience.

 
Egg production is still going fine.
 
 
Bonding times

 
Ricky turned 13 this year and took his "growing into manhood" trip with Jerome. There was meaningful conversation but also camping and fishing fun!
 
 
Growing times

 Isaiah lost his very first tooth. It was very exciting!



Fun times
 
Honda offers a family day at Kings Island. We took our family and some friends. We didn't quite realize how large our group was until we took this picture.


It was certainly a fun day and we enjoyed each other a lot.


Working times

 
Adela says this is a picture of my whole life. My Bible, computer, school notes, a red pen and coffee. She might be close to right. I have been planning, administrating and just generally getting our home school off the ground this year. I love school and I love homeschooling, but it does take some planning and work -- which all involve loads of time -- which is a major reason why blogging has been suffering.
 
So, like everyone else I have been busy; but the times we have spent have been good, growing times.
