What a month full of blessings!

In counting my blessings I am constantly finding the Husband that God has given me at the very top of the list. This week has been the usual crazy, insane pace of ecclesial life. Sunday school lessons to prepare and do, Bible classes, Memorial, school work to be completed WITH PATIENCE...

"Helper what is this word BIG?"


"You know this one so let's sound it out"


"no, its a B, what does B say?"


"No that is a T sound, what does a B say?"


"B is for Bug"


"Good now that is the next letter"


"No that is an E sound, what does the I say"


"I is for Indian"


"okay so lets make the blend"


"Try again"


"okay now well add the last letter, what does G say"

"I know, G says G"

"great! so say the word"


"say it faster"



Hubby on the other hand is so patient and can keep this up for a whole reader, Mummy does pages at a time.

Tangent aside, Hubby has put together our new book shelves. You know us, we hate to have to buy new stuff, but the book shelves we had were not big enough, and they were already double deep on the shelves! So off to Ikea we went and came home and in only 1 week the study is nearly done! YAHOO! 6 Billy (so suitable don't you think) and 1 corner and extensions are all up and are already nearly full.

How many times have we simply stood at the open study door and looked at the books while sipping tea....


Well, instead of napping, I hear giggles so I do believe that is my cue to put on the kettle for a tea party. After all it is -22 C and that is without the windchill!

I had the same problem when my son was little, we had a truck and whenever someone asked him where his daddy was he would tell them. Only his T sounded like an F. conversation whent like this
Me Tr
him Tr
Me uck
Him uck
Me truck
him %uck.
For a long time I would jump in and say the word for him.
