A challenge to all

"Remember also you Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near when you will say, "I have no delight in them"; before the sun and the light, the moon and the stars are darkened, and the clouds return after the rain; The conclusion when all has been heard is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person."
~Ecclesiastes 12:1 & 13

Perhaps some of you will remember this post asking y'all to pray for a couple at our church who were expecting baby #5 (she had miscarried the other 4). Well God answered our prayers and here is a picture of Fernando and Alejandra with their beautiful baby, Raquel Alejandra, who I might add, is 7 months old (This picture is long over due lol).

~"For I know the plans I have for you" declares the Lord, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope'. ~

Spring days

The past few weeks we have enjoyed beautiful spring weather here in SC, and so we took advantage to be outdoors as much as possible.

Playing with the boys AKA climbing onto the roof LOL:)

Playtime also included climbing trees

We also had the opportunity to go on a field trip to Paris Mountain with our home-school co-op.
As you can see there's LOTS of children :)

(From left to right) Adriana, Katie, Me, Haviland, Andrea, Jasmine and Abby fishing in the FREEZING COLD creek for insects to study.

Jasmine, Haviland, Jared, Mark, Danny and Ben examine the Garter fish that Ben caught.

Ohhhhh soooo cute!!!!
This is Nathaniel better known to us as Bubby:)

Fishing away

Studying water temperature and pH level

Busy writing down our observations

Rebekah, isn't she beautiful?

Ben, Mark and Dan studying very hard LOL ;-)


Erika fishing

Canadian Geese

This was a really neat sight. 7 turtles on a log

This picture has nothing to do with nature but I found this carved on a bench at the park and thought " WOW B.F. for Bethany Franco" LOL.
Who knows what it really means but it was a neat discovery, if not very scientific;)

So sweet!!!
Well I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into our field trip.
Thank you to all our church families for the wonderful time we all had together!!!
