Tuesday. The sun is shining beautifully again this morning. We have had just lovely weather for about a week or more now. I love it- sunny blue skies, cool breezes, spring. We try to get outside as much as possible. Chad likes to take an afternoon run, and Naomi usually rides her bike alongside him. Abram has been walking with me recently. He enjoys pushing the little kids in their cart. Sometimes we go on a family bike ride. That's what Abram likes best. It's fun.

Only eleven weeks of school left. Wow! In the background, "Redeemer" by Nicole C. Mullen is playing. It is one of my all-time favorite songs. It moves me everytime I listen to it. I heard her sing it once at a worship concert with Michael W. Smith and others, and I was reduced to tears. No explanation for it except that it stirs up my spirit that much. We have been listening to a new station called Air1. It plays Christian music. Although it is not necessarily worship music, it is uplifting and it rocks! We have discovered all sorts of Christian bands that we like. Some of them are BarlowGirl, Skillet, Fireflight, and others. Really talented bands who love the Lord. Back to the subject of school, we are moving right along. Abram's reading ability is just improving by leaps and bounds. I'm very encouraged by their progress. I may start Saul in the fall on some little preschool workbooks. Something very simple. And I'll probably ask Naomi to start reading to him and Esther more often. Abram will be able to read to them, also. He already does.

I can hear the kids getting a little rowdy in the living room, so I'll have to sign off for now.

BarlowGirl is a group of THREE SISTERS who are/were HOMESCHOOLED! Isn't that totally cool?

I like that song, "Redeemer" too.

Can't wait to see you! It is getting closer and closer. We huddled over the map together last night so we could take a look-see. Texas is so tiny...hee hee.
