Bits and Bobs

Its school holidays finally. Its been a big term. VERY Very busy for us as a family.
We came back from holidays earlier in the term knowing we would be in top speed.
I even procrastinated about turning my mobile on, for fear of the amount of txts and voice mals we would receive- where we stayed as you may remember has NO mobile coverage for our network.
Our homeschool community is very active, and we meet at least weekly, and often more.
Its great for us parents as well as the children, of course.
Anyway were was I up to, oh yes, -top speed. Our Lord had plans for me. STOP.
I hurt my knee bending down to clean the shower- how awkward- no painful would be a better word.
This kept me ned bound and then house bound for a good few weeks. Having the desired effect- stopping me in my tracks.
I had so much to do, So I ended up teaching Brid from bed. All my plans for outdoor activities out the window.
We had been busy spending time cleaning and restoring our home to the way it was before our life fell apart last year.
We succeeded, it looked great.
We cleaned, painted, washed, repaired constructed a new fence, and looked at our home with delight.
We had not been able to do this before, so it was rather empoering to get these jobs done.
Brid cleaned with us and painted- and then painted little faces on the wall next to whereshewas painting -looks cute.
so why did we do all this?????

Anyway, the children have kept us busy, Louise with her car repairs and Kristie with just life issues. My beautiful grown up girls.
One day we will be all together. In the mean time, God has given me my girls to spend time with.
Brid delights in it all. She has an amazing resiliance, and an amazing love of Our Lord. Blows me away some times.
In the middle of all of this, Dermot has been overwhelmingly busy with our business, -end of financial year in australia 30th June. The work was always pouring in. Thank you Lord for your great providence in our lifes.

We are embarking on a new part of our lives and we will all do it differently. I now my girls will all choose different paths, but that a given. It exciting, its change and its Gods plan.

Dermot & I -- we are looking forward to meeting others at the National Marriage Day- in Canberra next month.
All I know I am blessed to have been taken on this journey, and blessed to be a daughter of God.

so school holidays- here we come, with all its excitement and bumps and laughs along the way.
