Our Rock

God is teaching me daily what it is to truly trust and rest in Him, and I am so thankful. I’ve read so much lately of His shelter, refuge and keeping of us. He is our rock and shield. He is good and rewards those who seek Him. He is our Comforter. He gives us peace as we keep our eyes on Him. When we draw near to Him, He draws near to us. He gives us all things we need for life and godliness. He commands us not to fear for He is with us. 

This God—his way is perfect; 
 the word of the Lord proves true;
 he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.

For who is God, but the Lord?
 And who is a rock, except our God? Psalm 18:30-31

Ronald McDonald House Fun

The RMH was a wonderful place to stay in Auckland. It is set up a lot like a hotel with a large shared kitchen, play room, common area and playground. We also got a tour of the cardiac ward at Starship Children’s Hospital, where Baby May need surgery around 4-9 months.

Baby Shupe

Meet our sweet Baby Shupe! I was shocked how clear this little one’s face appeared when the tech offered to try a 3D image. What a beautiful sneak peek.

Hymn Study


Hymn study has long been a frustration for me in doing as part of school. Lately we've been listening to the first two sections of Simply Charlotte Mason's Hymn Study book in the morning during chores. We listen off of YouTube and I try to keep a verse to find on our whiteboard. The boys like trying to find it first, and the lyrics are so encouraging. Can you name this hymn? ;)

That would be ball one...

Rounding the bases...
Tough guys in outfield

Somehow cricket will never replace baseball in this family. ;)
