Friday Favorites

From life…

1. Keith’s parents are visiting this weekend. The kids are excited to see Grandma and Grandpa. I’m excited for them to get to know Jenny and to have company. I do love having family over to visit!

2. I actually feel like I accomplished something this week! After linking up to the Not Back to School Blog Hop with my description of our homeschool room sans pictures because it was in need of some serious cleaning and organizing, I got busy doing just that…cleaning and organizing. And now I can relax a bit because our homeschool classroom is DONE! I also finished decorating Jenny’s nursery this week.

3. I was incredibly blessed and encouraged by the comments on my post about my fear of beginning homeschool with a newborn in the family. Thank you so much for your sweet words of wisdom and encouragement. I am so thankful for each person that comes to visit and even more so for those that leave a piece of themselves in the form of a comment…thank you!
