I have so much to post but I am tired so I thought I would just do a quick check in. We have been so busy here. In the last 2 days I have made 6 loaves of banana nut bread for freezing with overripe bananas that I picked up for 50cents a pound at Safeway, 6 jars of blueberry jam, and 3 large jars of blueberry pie filling. I still have plans to can blueberry pear butter tomorrow, and both blueberry chutney, and blueberry marmalade. I am still out there picking everyday I can, and honestly my legs are sore from hiking all over the tundra, but I know it will be worth it in the end. While out there, I have been checking on the cranberries, and they still need a few weeks to ripen.
A had a rough day today with listening and obedience. I lover her free spirit, but many days she just tests me. We worked on it all day, and still struggled. I am hoping tomorrow is a better day. She has her first homeschool swim lesson of the year tomorrow afternoon and I know she is looking forward to it. If anyone has any advice on quelling arguing and not listening, and plain disobeying because she doesn't like what was asked, please help. We have talked, time outs, read scripture and stories from the bible, and still she for the moment gets it or plays lip service to it, and the 5 minutes later it's a complete repeat. So tonight I am tired and I am off to bed, with the prayer that God will open her heart to obedience tonight as she sleeps, and grant me the patience I need to lead her.
Good night all. Hopefully tomorrow I can find the chance to share the wonderful photos of what we have been up to.
