Catsup;Ketchup;Catch Up

So I suppose I have finally come out of some sort of blog funk, though, these past weeks have been quite eventful. The kids and I went to chicago with Cindy Agnew and her kids. We went to Navy Pier Children's and that was fabulous! Seriously. I couldn't believe how much fun we had. Then the girls and I went with Miss Mary Fouty to the Renaissance Festival in Holly, Mi. That was also an incredible time. The girls were given great accolades for their lovely, Fairy princess costumes complete with wings; we have had four weeks of classes and 2 essays; my computer has finally given up the ghost; we've got a new babysitter and I have finished and ripped an entire sweater (that is 500yards of yarn-5 football fields-I just want you to understand);
and. . .I washed some dishes.

I had a birthday and got 2 birthday presents: a very interesting book on Irish Folk and Fairy Tales (I half thought about going back for a Ph.d. in Lit. . . .but only half), and a wonderful set of Denise Interchangable Needles (from Sharon and Emily, my very favorite retirees). Lila started school; kindergarten, half-day, everyday, and on occasion, Eva cries when she leaves. It's very sweet and very sad, all at the same time. As well, it's raining.

The garden has bloomed and given and now needs to be closed up. I don't exactly know how to do that, but I'll figure it out.

What else? I've started a Names of God study. We began with Jehovah-shalom (Judges 6) and moved on to Jehova-jireh (Genesis 22) and now Adonai (Exodous 33). I think I need to internalize the meaning of these names and then I'll be able to see God as "My Peace," and, "My Provision," and, "My Soveriegn Lord" ( I still need some work on this one). Any ideas are welcome.

We've been busy. You understand.
