I am posting to
Simple Pleasure on Thursday
with our wonderful host Dayle
at A Collection of This and That.
Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.
1 Peter 5:7
I took this shot while on our vacation in July.
We had rented a pontoon boat for the morning and had
to make a "potty" stop at the local marina.
(Several of the 7 kids aboard needed to go!)
This shot was taken in between rain showers,
looking from the dock out to the sound.
I loved the way the old rough dock contrasted
with the silky smooth water.
This is currently what is sitting beneath my cloche!
My favorite petite turquoise saucer,
with my daughter's sweet baby foot impression!
Both of these small objects bring me big smiles!
Some By-The-Way Information
Thank you for all the sweet well wishes for Wayne's Birthday.
Since school started the same day,
we kept the celebration to a minimum...
out for Pizza,
back to open cards,
and have a slice of our favorite cheesecake!
We will get to celebrate on Sunday with my extended family!
The kids seem to be off to a great start of school.
It is hard to believe that Zac is in 10th grade and
Madison 7th. Where does the time go?
I think I've confused several of you regarding my "jobs"!
I hope this clears thing up!
Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday
I help my mom care for my grandma while the kids are in school.
I finally received my Ohio State Care Provider Number!
This allows me to go back to work for the family I used to clean for.
I still clean, only now the state pays me.
This is a very special family to me.
They run a local special needs adoption agency called
the Shepherd's Crook.
My nephew was adopted thru this agency.
The family themselves have 4 biological children and
14 adopted children (most with special needs).
I teach art at a local home school co-op
to some wonderful 1st-3rd graders!!
I was very spoiled this summer to have taken time away
from these responsibilities and spend time with my kids!
I hope each of you have a fantastic day!
