FLOWERS FROM SAMUEL'S GARDEN

ZINNIAS... I LOVE HOW THEY CAN HAVE 30 PETALS OR 100... THEY ARE ALL SO DIFFERENT AND INCREDIBLY VIBRANTLY COLORFUL:)
COSMOS... WISPY AND SO DELICATE... DO YOU SEE THAT TINY LITTLE BEE I CAUGHT COMING FOR A DRINK?

THE FINISHED PRODUCT...
WHEN THE FLOWERS IN SAMUEL'S GARDEN ARE IN BLOOM, MY HEART IS FILLED WITH JOY. I LOVE COLOR AND I LOVE FLOWERS. I LOVE SITTING OUT THERE AND WHEN THE FLOWERS ARE IN BLOOM IT GIVES ME AN ALIVE FEELING...
WE ARE REALLY TRYING TO GET INTO A GROOVE WITH SCHOOL. IT IS ALWAYS SLOW GOING IN THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR... BUT I DO FIND THIS YEAR I REALLY NEED TO COMMIT MYSELF TO STAYING HOME AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE DURING THE DAY TO GET IT ALL IN AND HAVE IT BE ENJOYABLE FOR US ALL.
HOPE DOESN'T ENJOY PLAYING BY HERSELF TOO MUCH (YOU KNOW BY HERSELF, BUT IN THE SAME ROOM:) SO SHE IS LEARNING THAT IS A PART OF HER LIFE TOO:)
WE ARE GETTING READY TO HEAD TO LOUISIANA FOR A SUPER QUICK TRIP FOR GREG TO DO A BAPTISM. LITERALLY WE HEAD DOWN THURSDAY AND HEAD BACK SATURDAY. HIS COUSIN RYANE HAD A BABY AND SHE HAS BEEN SUCH A HUGE SUPPORT TO ME OVER THE PAST YEAR. WE CAN'T WAIT TO CELEBRATE WITH THEM.
WE ARE SO ENJOYING THE COOLER WEATHER... IN THE 80'S TO LOW 90'S. WE CAN ACTUALLY GO OUTSIDE AND NOT FEEL LIKE WE ARE INSTANTLY GOING TO MELT:)
BRING ON THE FALL WEATHER...

Hi Sara,
Oh, I love the Zinnias. They are so vibrant and beautiful. And love the picture you captured with the bee. May God continue to comfort your heart each day.

I think we homeschoolers all struggle with returning to school full force. We've been at it for two weeks and just now are adding Latin and Writing in. As we made lots of changes this year, it has also been a bit of a learning curve for the children. It all works out in the end. Hang in there!
Much love,
Stacy
