Fun Happenings {overdue update}

Here is what has been happening in the life of Domicile Lessons...

In March we became a family of 5!! The big kids were so excited to meet their little brother. We've continued the Biblical E theme with names so now we are 5 Es strong.

 

Here are a few recent pictures.



In July Miss E took a huge step in her gymnastics career and is now on Team!! {Her first competition} She was a little hesitant, as was her momma, in this next phase of life. I'm super excited for her. She participated in a two day clinic of intense gymnastics with a sleep over. I checked in on her a couple of times since I dropped her off and she seems to be doing well. The night was a little rough but she toughened up and stayed with her friends. Clinic ended with "The Really Big Show" that the girls worked hard on all weekend. It was pretty cute!!

On August 8, Little Man took a huge step in his walk with the Lord; he got baptized!! This momma's heart was about to explode and water leaks from my eyes anytime we talk about it. Back in February the story taught in his class at church was about having your name written in the Book of Life. He came home and asked if we would pray that his name would be written in the Book of Life. We told him that it was not a prayer we could pray, but we shared with him how to get his name written there. That night he accepted the Lord!! In July during our daily Bible reading we read the story about Philip and the Eunuch from Acts. If you don't know the story, Philip is helping the Eunuch understand what he was reading and then baptizes him. Little Man said when we were done that he was ready to be baptized, too. When asked why he wants to be baptized he says so he can show people he believes in Jesus!!






Homeschooling is still going strong. I slowed our schedule down a lot through the summer. We never really took a total break. I'm ready to hit the fall hard and get into our new routine. With Miss E's gymnastics at 10 hours a week, my work at our church, Little Man's endless energy and the baby things are going to be interesting... stay tuned there may be an update soon.

Thanks for reading.

Blessings,

This is the event we were all a little bit nervous about. She just mastered her round off back hand-spring and had to do it without a spot for competition. She nailed it!!
