Family, Farm, God teaching me learning

Our 1st Pumpkin Patch

Awhile back we planted our very first pumpkin patch.  We were late planting them & really it was a test run to see how and if they would grow in our area.  Matt came up with the idea with Great future plans of making it available to the public.
The kids took part in the project with helping plant the pumpkins.  We all said our “pumpkin prayer” (praying they would grow) & settled back to witness God answer!
He is answering those pumpkin prayers as we speak!  Matt brought home the first one last Monday & the kids & I took a field trip to the patch on Thursday! They took their journals & began to draw what they saw in the patch! It was a Great learning experience!
Did you know that pumpkins are actually Green when they start to grow??
Here’s proof. …
It’s AMAZING how they Start out as this tiny. .little…seed… 

Then.. POOF!

They PLUMP Up!
 Kind of reminds ya of the “Mustard Seed” parable… 
Mustard Seed Faith!

And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you. ~Matthew 17:20

God told us …to homeschool…
I said.. “You’re kidding.. right?!”
All God required of me… was Obedience!
I’m Thankful, Grateful, BLESSED.. 
to obey.. and answer His call.  All I needed was a little pumpkin seed faith 😉
Here are our pumpkins with their pumpkins! 
We really are enjoying Homeschooling!
No, it’s NOT easy…
One income family living is hard…. 
Yes… we have our days of frustration… & hair pulling…
(No, I don’t pull their hair out.. just mine) 

But GOD,
Provides and shows us His Love,..
His Grace 
and His Mercy..
And.. most days we are Rocking And Rolling… Learning all along the way! 🙂
