Scripture Searcher 2020-2021

It's that time of year! The new Scripture Searcher booklets are about to be printed. The editors here are very busy proofreading and looking for errors. In other words, we searching for any mistakes Daddy might have made so we can triumphantly point them out. (Trust me, this is not an easy task:)


If you would like to request a booklet or want to find out more about them, you can visit the Scripture Searcher website found here. Make sure to mail your finished booklet!

Sunshine, Schoolwork, and (online) Shopping

"O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!"
Psalm 8:9

Monday was beautiful and sunny. It really felt like summer!


We are on to the last week of school, and then it's summer break! We all can't wait.
I love summer. This year, we are going to have a big harvest from the plants on our property. We have a crab apple tree, which is loaded with fruit, a cherry tree full of cherries that are quickly ripening, blackberry blossoms everywhere, and hazelnuts forming under the leaves of the hazelnut tree outside the front door. 

Emma's spelling lesson





Typing- Ricka's getting so good


 My science lesson



Pixie points at everything! It's how she gets people to take her wherever she wants. Pixie also likes to summon people and then poke their noses and eyes, until they make a funny noise, or beep her nose She thinks it's hilarious.



On Monday, we also got a big online order delivered to the house:




New pants for QB! He was happy that they fit him, and he's been wearing them ever since.



Lulu got several new shirts, as well as pretty meeting shoes and running shoes. When she first got them, she switched to a different new shirt every few minutes, because she can't decide which one she likes best.





Pixie was helping everyone unpack the online order, by sitting in the middle of the chaos, and eating the wrappers as Mama took the things out of them.



Emma and Ricka also got a few new shirts, but Emma didn't want any pictures, so I don't have any photos of her to share. 


All three of them (These two and Emma, who's again not pictured for peacekeeping reasons), each recieved a matching shirt. Ricka and Lulu loved this, and made their whole outfits match, so they could be twins.


I'm excited for summer break to start for us, but in the meantime, I'm going to enjoy what we have right now, which is sunshine, schoolwork, and new shoes!

Cuddle Party

I had just finished getting the little kids ready for bed Saturday night, and we were enjoying Pixie's antics as we cuddled with blankets on the couch.
