Okay, so that's not a word. I won't be teaching Abby words like strategery or ignorarrogance. But I have been a bit elusive. Someone stopped me at church and said I hadn't written all week. There are 2 reasons for that:
1. I was at a conference for pastoral/leadership staff for several days.
2. No one comments on my posts so I have no idea you are reading it.

Please, follow and I love to see your comments! It makes me think I am not just writing to myself. :-) Wait, I might be..but you are reading this, so I am not just writing to myself...right?

So as far as this past week is concerned, I am afr
aid I was a miserable failure. Well, I just had bad timing in starting all of this. I had the Trunk or Treat thing last weekend, then I had bunches of housework following that. We got some stuff done Monday-Wednesday. And just when I was in the groove, the conference started Thursday, so the kids went o Miss Donna's a.k.a their favorite place in the world and they did some work there. My conference was awesome. With the ministry that I have, it's hard to get away some times and just worship the Lord. I truly had one of those heart filling, mountain-top type experiences. I needed it because burnout happens so easily. If you've never heard Francis Chan or Matt Chandler speak, I would encourage you to listen to a sermon or two online. Wow. Anyway, back to church today and we shall have a productive week this week hopefully now that everything has calmed down. I will leave you with a picture or two (or more) for fun.

Will working on his times tables.

Conference fun-ness


  1. Oh, my goodness! The look on Curt's face is priceless!

    BTW, I read your blog on a reader so I get notifies when you post a new post. I love reading blogs!

  2. Well, as I always say, if you get off to a great and smooth start usually you have trouble later... but if you get off to a little rocky start, you end up doing just fine. At least, that's what I tell myself.


  3. I couldn't figure out how to post.........but be assured we are here! Will work on the post thing!
    Love seeing what is going on in your life. And it gives better direction on how to pray for all of you!!!

  4. This is from Daddy, the previous anonymous was from the other half, but we haven't figured out how not to be "anon." I really enjoy seeing your blogs. I know you're always busy and I don't want to interrupt your schedule. You're doing just fine, don't be too hard on yourself. The home schooling will be more successful than you could ever have imagined. Hang in there and don't be discouraged.:)

  5. Note, I took that last picture off for security reasons..haha

  6. I love reading how everything is going. I have started to enjoy blogs. So thank you. I love hearing how everything is going with the homeschooling!
