I am having a hard time keeping them on task. They will jump up and run off.... and I find myself fustrated. They are 1st & 2nd grade .... I try to not stress much but .... sometimes I do.

Next week we will be camping. Each year (usually twice a year) we go camping with several home schooling families. We have done this for years. It is a great time and memories are made. Usually about 5-6 families. All ages of kids. We set up a volleyball net and at night the children play capture the flag or sardines. We all sit around the fire, some play the guitar and we sing. We roast marshmellows and sometimes smores. We take walks and it is beautiful. I am excited and looking forward to just sitting out doors and reading some.... spending some time alone with the Lord and just enjoying His creation.
We continue to talk about the "Children of the World International Choir." I will hear my three youngest singing their songs... and sounding like them .... ~smile~ At this very moment Alyssa is circling all the places on our world map where the children are from and writing the children's names next to each place as she sings "for the children of the world... every single little boy and girl... heaven plants a special seed... and we must have faith for these. Red and yellow, black and white... they are precious in the Father's eyes.... like the Father may we see... that they have a destiny.... " She watches the dvd almost every day....

They continue to touch our heart.... they continue to be on our mind and in our hearts.
