“Who can measure the long-term effects of nurturing helpless infants, supervising wandering toddlers, discipling self-willed children, and counseling self-absorbed adolescents? Of family outings planned, traditions built, memories made, books read, songs sung, Scripture taught? That’s why motherhood belongs under the heading, “Engage the World”; no one shapes generations or fashions cultures more than mothers.” from Worldliness
Yes, mothers, we really do live Radically when we embrace the adventure of nurturing those around us. And all I can say to that is AMEN!
This week we went to a canyon park that is up the road from us. It was windy and chilly, but we still enjoy our nature school day.
Joeliana also celebrated her 7th birthday this week. Funny, I have her and the other two “stuck” at age 5, but “the babies” as we all call the four youngest, are growing up.
And Steve has been workin’ away with the older children getting a “green house” over Caresse’s garden. We have tried just about everything to garden here in Colorado at over 7,000 feet, but it has been hard...the seasons are just to short and unpredictable. So this year, we are are building this...
Thank you all so much for following our family adventure and sharing yours with us. I pray that all the mothers out there are loved on and blessed this weekend!!!
