It has been awhile since I have had time to write here. I have been busy trying to get going with school, keeping up with the work I do from home, planning and carrying out parties, etc., etc.!

So much to do and so little time!

I am realizing that I really still have some more planning to do for school to help things run more smoothly and to fit everything in each week. I am definitely working on a more rotating schedule to make things work!

You can read some of what I have been posting planning on my homeschool blog at:

and at my KONOS support group website at:

Many things have been going on in our life also that have been making me feel somewhat overwhelmed and wondering just how to "get out of it".

Our Bible Study tonight was awesome as it directly addressed this issue of understanding what faith truly is, where it comes from and how things really work with God. It's too hard to explain tonight, but I will try to share more later when I have some time to review my notes and listen to the message again (I record all of them so we can share them with others).

Our pastor's wife also shared about a dream she had a bit ago that really was an example of what they and us have been going through recently. She was dreaming that her family and our family were in a house (not either of our current homes) and there were tornadoes coming. There would be a round of tornadoes that we thought for sure was going to hit us but then they moved away, then there was another round of tornadoes that we thought were going to hit us, but then they also moved away. The tornadoes never overtook or touched us or the house we were in. Our pastor said it was God showing her that we will not be overcome by those things that we see/feel may overtake us/destroy us. God has promised us His protection and to see us through whatever comes our way---even if it looks to us like a devastating situation.

It was encouraging tonight. I do want to share more, but I can hardly type at the moment!

I am off to bed so I can get up early to mow and water my yard before it is too hot! Don't you just love the wonderful Texas summer weather!
