Hannah my cousin and I

There has been a home school prom
for the past five years around us.My cousin Hannah and I have attended all of them.
Always an enjoyable time.Something to look forward to at the end of the
school year.It will be dearly missed;.)

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity,
under heaven.

Morel Mushies;.)


We found them in our yard!

The Lord was really watching out for Dad!

It's always kinda been a yearly tradition to try to find some Morel mushrooms.When I was a little girl I can remember dad taking me on a hike in the woods to find some mushrooms when spring began.We would usually always find a couple and take them home to cook and eat.Yummy!Nothing quite tastes like they do!This year in particular though has been kind of a hard year to find them.Dad has been out close to every night after work trying to find one or two here and there.He found a couple little ones and we cooked them up.Thinking that was the end for this year we stoped looking and just was thankful for what the Lord gave us.Anyways, we were on our way home from a going away party for my aunt yesterday.We pulled into the driveway,I was looking out the window and we drove past a small hill in our yard I thought I saw what looked to be like Morel mushrooms!!!It took a minute to register in my brain;.) and I yelled "stop".Dad slammed on the brakes thinking some small animal must of ran out in front of us.I said"I think I saw some mushrooms!!!"So dad and I jumped out of the car to see if there were and to our surprise there were 12 to 15 big Morel mushrooms growing right in our front yard.The very last place we would of thought to check!Its probably not a big deal to most people but like I said they are one of the favorites in our house.It just goes to show how good the Lord is to us.He even gives us some of our wants not only our needs.A verse came to mind:
"Yet those who wait for the Lord
will gain new strenght:They will
mount up with wings like eagles,
they will run and not get tired,they
will walk and not become weary.
Isaiah 40:31
I love this verse,it's such an encouragement!
Happy Moreling!!You never know were
they'll pop up;.)Kelsey

Remodeling the Bathroom!

Aright sooo.....
Dad has been redoing our bathroom.

It seems to be taking FOREVER!!!!

This is the new wallpaper we picked.

This is the beadboard.

It is FINALLY starting to
come together!!!

So we decided to remodel our bathroom ohh like say when we moved
in our new home about five years ago.But we finally tore into it about a
month ago.Dad took a week off work to complete it.Well lets just
say everything that could possible go wrong went wrong.As you
can see in a picture above we had bubblegum pink walls that needed
painted over and a vanity that was literally holding on by a thread.
so that week has turned into a LONG month. but it is finally starting to
come around,FINALLY.Now all that needs done is to put the new pedestal
sink and the trim around the bead board.YAY!!!!I cant wait until it is finished!
