Pictures from this week

Yes I know I've posted twice today, but I just wanted to share some pictures I have recently taken....Enjoy!

Sweet P (P for Pearl)

A stack of old books I found at the home school Blessings Bash on Monday. I was so excited because I'm a big fan of old books!

This  was the best find of them all- what a treasure!

Inside the cover it said it was printed in 1945!

I was taking pictures of the pages and I was actually thinking of  this Scripture and wondering what verse it was.....

..... then I flipped a couple pages, looked down....

.....and there it was! Lookin' me in the eye- Isaiah 40: 8!

After finding this 60+ year-old Bible, that Scripture verse has become very special to me. I think of all the families whose memories and records are held in old Bibles like these, the Word of God that has been passed down through generations...it stands forever.

These two of Emily were going to be for our homeschool co-op photo contest that I was too late in entering :(

I love taking pictures of tiny things!

funny how dirt and acorns can become a cool picture!         

Thoughts on Veteran's Day

This is a picture of my grandfather, Hank, taken in the 1950s when he was a new airman in the United States Air Force. He served in it for almost 30 years. I am very proud to call him my grandpa because of all he has done for our family and our country.
In addition to Poppy, my family has been honored to be friends with many other great men and women who were and are in the military.
If you know someone who is a veteran or is currently enlisted, don't forget to thank them and let them know we appreciate their service! Enjoy this video from History Channel about the history (no way!) of Veteran's Day and thank a veteran!

Afternoon on the porch

Here it is November 11th and yesterday was so warm out that the sister and I brought our school work and a glass of iced tea out to our front porch! Think I might go and do it again!
