Just scratched the surface

Spunky, sweet and my precious girl!! I am home everyday with her and my other beautifull eight children, but I neeeeed to know them more. I am so thankful to God for the blessing of home schooling them which to me really means I don't have to send them away everyday. I do like teaching them academically ...more so this year than ever....I'm loving it. More than anything ,though, and more important than academics, I am thankful for the daily opportunity to tell them of God's love and try with the help of the Holy Spirit to guide their little hearts rightly. I feel like I've only scratched the surface of knowing them, too. Their little hearts and souls go sooo deep. WOW! What a magnificent privilege to be mom. God has really pressed on my heart lately just what a short time we are given to hold their little hearts in childhood. Do any other moms feel this way?

Fewer than half my children but still a very blessed hand and heart full. We had so much fun this day. Althought this is just a few minutes before Jessie threw up her orange ice cream on Cason, he was still more than happy to hang out with her, chase her around and even carry her on his shoulders after the little incident: )
