Help! I need somebody!!




Hey Y'all!! Thanks to everyone who has welcomed me into the blog-world!! I feel sorta special...
Well, I had a wonderful(in my opinion) post planned with pictures to show you all, but I can't seem to get my pictures from my camera to my computer to a file that will open. The other pics are from a cd which I was able to find. I don't know what to do. When I can figure all this out, I will definitely share my finds from the antique store-I am so excited about them!!
Since I cannot share the pictures I want with y'all, I will share some from around my yard last year. FYI, I did not plant any of these, they came with our house. The people that lived here before have planted some beautiful flowers and plants. We have a butterfly bush, a snowball(?) bush, azaleas, irises, lilies, and some other things that I have no idea what they are. We are also bird friendly around here, with birdhouses on posts through-out the yard. I am definitely taking that idea with me when we buy our own house. Speaking of which, if you praying sisters out there want, we would appreciate prayer for our new house. We found one and put an offer in. It is so perfect for us and more than we could have hoped to ask for. Unfortunately, it is a bit out of our price range and so we offered $15,000 less for it. It would totally be God if we got the house. He has provided so much for us in the past year, with a free van and an almost free baby. It is amazing to see Him work and I know that He is capable of giving us this house. Hopefully, my next post has a praise in it!! We have been praying.
I hope you all have a great Wednesday and rest of your week!!
Elise

Hi, Elise! Beautiful flowers! I looooooove snowball bushes! I planted some when we first moved into this house, but they didn't like the spot I had put them in. I need to plant some more....

I will absolutely keep y'all in my prayers on the house situation and more! Take care, Elise!

Hoping to hear a praise on the house too!

Beautiful flowers! :)

On the pictures - is it possible to tell what format they are in? For example in the name of the file it should be the name of photo or rile followed by a (.) and then three letters usually jpg or img or something like that. Perhaps it is in a funny format? This can be changed - e-mail me if I can help...

wow! I had no idea that was happening on the "safe" channel.

I am actually about to start putting together what will be our curriculum for next year. We are using some Abeka because the teachers manuals and some other supplies were given to us. It's a little dry, though so we are only using phonics and math. I am printing handwriting sheets off the internet for our handwriting, and I am still trying to decide what to do for our Bible. We will use our Awana book for verse memorization, and I really want to order a set of Bible books and do a story a week.

Our art stuff will be crafts from the Bible story, free creativity, or some other craft for birthday presents or whatever.

We will have a short calendar and weather time each morning too.

What are your plans?

First off, yes I will say a prayer for the house. I hope it is in God's will for yall to call it home. If not maybe a better one is right around the corner. Thank you for your sweet comment that you left. Your words meant so much to me.. Thanks again, Susie H

Hey Elise! It's great to find your blog. I hope you get the house you are wanting. But I hope you don't have to move away from me!
