Wow! I feel like I've had a very productive day! School went great, we were done by 10 o'clock! Then a friend came over and we made cards all day. What a great day! The kids had so much fun, they had plenty of babies to play with, and Jewels and I were able to sit and talk and get allot of cards made! Yeah!

I'm trying out a new recipe tonight, pork chops, stuffing, apples and onions... smells wonderful, I hope it tastes as good as it smells! I am trying out 2 new recipes a week, I am sick of the same old stuff, and I crave new tastes and smells!

School has been going really well the last few weeks! The kids have been "getting" their math without any meltdowns, Isabelle is soaking up all the new phonics concepts, she walks around the house telling me what sounds are in different words and singing her phonics songs! I love the fact that she wants to learn, it makes is so much easier for me! Joseph learned how to borrow and subtract last week, a hard concept to grasp, but once grasped, it is a breeze! He is determined to be done with school in 2 weeks so he can go to Red Wing with Dennis for work! Maybe not on weekly basis, but he may be able to go with for a week or two. We will have to wait and see.

I feel like I am on top of things lately. I look forward to starting school every morning. I love looking for new recipes ( I am blessed with children who will try everything at least once!). The woodstove is working great. I feel at peace being home at this moment. I am looking forward to Ladies Retreat in March.

We had a friendship banquet at church Saturday, and a potluck at church on Sunday. It was great spending time with our church family! I forget how much I enjoy all of the people from church!

Life is really good for me right now. My head is in the right place, and I am at peace with everything going on in my life! I am learning to give everything to God, the good, the bad and the ugly!! A hard concept for me, I tend to be somewhat of a control freak!! ha ha! I know some of you are laughing! "wow Shanan, you are the master of understatements!!"

yum yum, supper is ready!! I'll let you know how it turned out!!
