Then his wife came out and she had just a little more English than him.
They were very nice, but since we couldn't really talk to them we just asked about how the game went and figured we'd keep on walking.
Cherishing each "cherishable" moment...Cheerfully accepting the "not-so cherishable" moments...Forever striving to look forward with faith & enthusiasm for what is to be...Loving the Journey of raising a big, happy family! Searching for joy daily as we learn, grow, play, explore, laugh, cry and love together...
I am “Momma” to seven beautiful, spirited children, and “Grammy” to three darling grandchildren. My sweet hubby and I have owned and operated our family business for over twenty years. I serve as the President of DHSA—a large homeschooling organization serving the state of Idaho—and I have homeschooled our family for nearly eighteen years. I am enthusiastic about families and parenting, and immerse myself in serving and loving mothers and the noble work they perform in their homes. I love offering monthly meetings for mothers, retreats, seminars, conferences, and one-on-one counseling. I write a message each month specifically for homeschooling families in the DHSA Newsletter, as well as posting messages on my blog as often as possible.
I am happy to say that I have accomplished one of my dreams; I wrote a book!!! FUNology ~ the Science of Having Fun!, This is a hands-on approach to teaching a variety of subjects and having FUN doing it! I LOVE teaching and learning so I hold classes in my home at least twice weekly for a number of families from book clubs to homeschool co-ops.
My latest and greatest exciting thing I'm doing started early last year (2012), I began studying Adlerian Parenting Theory and techniques under the direction of Vivian Brault, my beautiful mentor. I feel I have gained an immense amount of knowledge and understanding, and am grateful for the paradigm shift the Adlerian principles provide. I am so excited to share the knowledge I have received through offering parenting courses in the community. I just received the ISIP Certificate of Professional Studies in Adlerian Psychology; and am now on my way to earning my certificate through their Advanced Series. I am currently certified under Vivian Brault, MA, with an APEI (Adlerian Parent Educator Instuctor) and an APEIT (Adlerian Parent Education Instructor Trainer). I am so happy to be on this journey!!!
That's me in a nutshell...oh, I should probably add in that I eat chocolate EVERY day of my life, I sneak in bubble baths every chance I get, I love good movies and good books, I drive around the happiest, most adorable car on the road ~ a little yellow, convertible slug-bug...and love letters absolutely do it for me!!!
The HAPPIEST PEOPLE don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just MAKE THE BEST OF EVERYTHING THEY HAVE!
