This blog is my attempt to document our busy but BLESSED lives raising and educating our children for His glory. A child of God, wife to one, and mom to 6 fabulous kids. We are in our 9th year of homeschooling using a Classical ~ Charlotte Mason approach.

Come along for the good, the bad & the ugly.

Madison’s square garden

Madison has taken on the responsibility of being the resident gardener. This season we have only had luck growing lettuce, herbs and pumpkins much to our delight. But she is off to a great start!

So far we have 6 pumpkins growing!

We are trying to control and get rid of those pesky beetle bugs so they don’t destroy our crop.

Every morning Madison goes outside before breakfast and looks for bugs and waters the garden and the apple tree. She even made her own special “bug off” stick :)

Good job Madison! I can’t wait until Fall to see the fruits of your labor.
