Family

So many things to post about and so little time. I have company arriving Tues. for a week. The next two months will be busy with the holidays and one event we are looking forward to the most is a visit from our daughter and family. They are church planting in Riverside, CA. We can't wait to hug them all. Our grand daughters are growing, maturing and doing so well in school. We can't wait to hear all that the Lord is doing in their lives. Emma will be 10 in a couple of months. She went to summer camp in the desert of CA this year.
Got her wish to ride a horse.
Olivia (6) is loosing teeth left and right.

This was their first day of school. They are home schooled and do great with it. They have a regular classroom with regular school desks.




They have teachers that teach them via the hard drive.



Emma loves school and reads constantly. She always has a book in her hands. When I was visiting I found her reading the LA Times a couple of mornings. lol


They are sweet, tenderhearted girls. Always ready to pray or do a kind deed for someone.
Emma carries a little notebook and writes down people's names at prayer meeting so she can pray for them. Isn't that sweet!


Olivia is 1st grade this year and reading well and doing cursive.


They just finished their 1st year in CA and are seeing some progress and growth at the church. It is slow going and they covet the prayers of believers on their behalf.
I hope you are having a beautiful Fall weekend like we're having in SC. Enjoy God's beauty!

Hi Rose, Oh your family is precious. The girls are darling, not only on the outside but it sounds like their hearts are precious too. Such a nice thing to see in today's world. How proud you must be of your daughter and son in law, in raising such wonderful girls. The pics are great. I love seeing the home classroom.
I know you must be busy getting ready for your company. Everything at your home is beautiful and you don't have to fuss too much. Just enjoy your time with them.
I will pray for your daughter and family for continued growth at their church.
Have Fun this week.

Thanks for stopping by too. So sweet of you with all you have going on.
Hugs to you dearm friend,
Celestina Marie

I know you are so excited to see your family again! It's so hard to live far away, especially from the grands who grow so fast! The girls are adorable! I'm sure Jonas will enjoy playing with them too. Is the playhouse tea room all ready for them?
