Collage Friday and a test of Faith

It's Friday and it's a Good Friday in all sense of the word!  I am happy to be back linking up to my good friend, Mary from Homegrown Learners (don't you just love that name!)
 We were very busy this week with Easter teachings and other fun activities!  Today we have off!  (kids still fighting this darn head cold with cough 8( )

Last Sunday, Palm Sunday, the children performed at church. Molly had the pleasure of performing a ballet to Lord I lift Your Name on High.  All the children sang like songbirds.  You can see Zachary in the brown and white shirt loving Jesus from his heart so much, with his hands in the air!  Makes my heart melt to see how much they love Jesus and church. 

We made birdhouses for our fine feathered friends out of a recycled juice container.  Designer Chevron pattern!

We are suppose to go celebrate the day later at a friends property - 16 acres - kids can be with nature and cook out some dogs on the fire!

We are having great friends over for Easter dinner…

It's been a wonderful time away from daily blogging and most of social media.  As most you might know, I shut down our Joys of Home Educating Facebook page (as well as my personal page) and took a blogging break for a month.  Rediscovering WHY we homeschool and WHAT our family goals are - has been a wake up call.    WHY I blog...blogging with intention and not FOR attention...Blogging because I have something important to add to the homeschooling community.  Getting back to basics is our new family motto!   Thank you for all the nice comments and emails with concern as to what happened, but I can tell you with 100% honesty, LIFE is happening and I was missing it..Missing it because the computer took up my time..idolizing what others thought of my work, my thoughts, my passions.  
Little children, keep yourselves from idols.        1 John 5:21

Always growing as a mom, wife, daughter of God and lover of life... 

I have taken this time to be PRESENT with my children....stopping what I am…
