Wow! Time is flying and summer came to a screeching halt at our house last week as my kids begged me…I repeat, BEGGED me to start school. Now, every Mother knows two things: 1)You never ever say no to requests from your kids to do things that make sense and 2) you tiptoe when they’re sleeping. (And 3) you wonder what they’re after when they say things like, “can’t we please start school?”) I can’t take credit for the joy of school (well, maybe a little!) – a lot of that comes from our curriculum, which is Sonlight. Love Luv Lurv this company and fully recommend it to you and yours. I have had a couple families start with it this past year because I kept talking about it so much and so far, they love it too!

(here we are trying a red banana from Ecuador. I thought it would be a good idea. It wasn’t. It was so gross! You must have to cook them first, like a plantain. Anyone know?)
So we started and now I have no time. But, getting back to a schedule has helped us all immensely. I actually work out and get laundry done when on a schedule. Schedules=Energy! Wow, that even annoyed me. Sorry I said it. I should have kept that my little secret.
And we were fortunate to have the chance to visit with the family of an old bandmate of Mr MIP’s – wait, wait, let me rephrase that, the man himself is not old, but the band was long ago – back when we first got married. Since then, this family has moved to the mission field and is currently ministering in Singapore. Unfortunately, he had pictures of his recent trip to Nepal where he was helping get radio stations up and running. I say unfortunate, because, there in the background of the photos was Mt Everest. Don’t know if you are aware, but that’s like Dream Come True for Mr MIP – to travel to Mt Everest. I think his friend could get him over there to help out at the radio station in a blink of an eye! Well, the blink of an eye and some Magical Money Dispenser. Maybe we’ll start taking a trip a year – this past year: Ireland and the radio station there, next year, Nepal!
And, I can’t take credit for these pictures, they were taken by Mr himself.
