This is one of my favorite pictures I have taken in the last couple of days. When I look at it on my camera or computer it's really pretty. Somehow this doesn't look as nice. I just can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Oh, well. It's still nice. Here are some others.

The boys were pretending that they were refugees, or homeless, in the rain the other day. It was funny.

Here the guys are making breakfast on Saturday. Abraham is an excellent bacon maker. I think I will leave the bacon to Abraham until he leaves home. Then we will either have overcooked bacon from me, or someone else will save us. I'm hoping for the latter.

What to do with books

Since we have started homeschooling the books in our house have started to breed. It seems as though every time I turn around there are more books. Right now half of my dining room table is covered with books. I eat on the corner of the table surrounded by books. And the bar is mostly covered with books as well. There are some on the floor too. We got two pieces of furniture last year to try and accomodate all of the new items that we have aquired for homeschooling. However it seems as though it is not enough. So today I spent some time perusing decorating blogs to see what other people use to hold their books. This is what I would love.
Isn't it lovely? However, I noticed that people don't keep books in their front rooms. This is very confusing to me. I grew up surrounded by books pretty much everywhere. I think that these bookcases would be great in any living area. What better to talk about than books!

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers. I thought I would celebrate by sharing one of my favorite pictures of my oldest and youngest.

When I "fixed" this photo in Elements it wasn't nearly as light. The color difference will take a bit of getting used to.
