I am wife to a magnificent man and mother to five wonderful children. Three of my children were born in the Northwest and two were born thousands of miles away in Liberia, West Africa. Birthplace is no matter, all of my children were born in my heart. This is our journey.

I am so tired.

I am happy. My hubby hung up the long awaited clothesline. I hung out three loads today plus a comforter. How sweet it was. It's like a little break in my day to stop, pray, think and hang laundry. So of course you know it saves you money not drying but as a bonus you also save more money because your clothing lasts longer. I am all for that.

Lil picked 6 green beans this morning. Canning season is here. But we need the production to pick up a bit before we start.

Lij decided he wanted to help mom and big sisters bake. Lil is showing him how to measure out three cups of flour. (He insists that he must wear tanktops if it's sunny outside. Cracks me up.)

Els wanted to check progress on the scrumptiousness in the oven but the steam got to her a bit. So she found a way to look that worked for her.

There's the loot. Five loaves of pecan nut bread and eight loaves of zucchini. Yes, those four in the back did get some extra time in the oven. Just keep it to youself, would ya? I'm busy, a timer gets missed on occasion. The kids like them anyway and that's what matters, right?

So, 13 loaves of bread, 3 loads of laundry hung out to dry, folded and put away, 2 freezer meals made, 2 loads ran through the dishwasher, everyone fed and five kids to VBS for the evening. Can I put my feet up now?
