Esther's birthday

                                  Saturday was Esther's ninth birthday!

  One of the things she got was a pair of  white and purple roller skates, which her and Anna have been riding all around the house lately.

The Birthday cake

At our house, we have a tradition that until a birthday cake is gone, we get to have it for breakfast.  ;)

Mind Growing :)

Okay, I know it's been ages since I posted, but I have some good excuses!
1. We had two birthdays in August.
2. We had company for ten days (which was really fun).
3. I haven't been very inspired.
But now I have something to say. So, here you go. :)

A few weeks ago, I turned fifteen. Oh my. Looking over my fourteenth year, I don't think I made much progress in anything really worthwhile, and wasted a lot of time that could be spent doing other, more purposeful things. I'm beginning to understand more and more that life is a battlefield, and that I shouldn't waste my time (which really isn't my time anyway) on petty, useless things, even if everyone does. In this season in life, I have the time to do things that I may not be able to do later (like, Lord willing, when I'm a Momma and busier than I ever thought possible). So, one of the things I want to make sure to do while I have time is lots of is reading. this is my goal (minus the one on the end; that's audio). Momma put books she wants me to read on the shelf, and then I added some.

Also, here's some Cd's I'm planing on listening to.

Daddy's going to have to go back to work in a few days. *sniffle* It's been really nice having him home all the time. :)
