Amy’s Still Alive World

Hi y’all. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? It seems inspiration to write has left the building! My dear friend at BornAgain encouraged me to share with you all what’s been going on.

All is well. We are are all physically well here. Back to church and my husband is still working. Only one who has been on a stand-still is my oldest as her day services have been closed since March. I have been trying to keep her as busy as I can. She is a big help around here.

We’ve taken a few trips to a near by amusement park over the summer, our yearly trip to my Aunt’s camper and many trips to a state park 10 mins away from our house.

I’ve spent many hours preparing for school. We started last week. I have taken another girl, Abigail’s age to homeschool along with my two girls. It’s been a blessing as she brings life to our school days. To watch her face light up as she gets the academic attention she’s needed. Having her here each day gives my girls someone to play with…and someone to fight over. All of you that had siblings growing up know what I mean.

We did alot of baking cakes over the summer. Both girls baked a cake for Leah’s bday. They loved it.

Abigail has a pet chicken named Bessie. It comes to her when she calls its name. The chicken will perch on her arm. The chicken rode on the big wheel too! Don’t ask.

Abigail wove her own purse with her loom. And leah made her own doll out of scrap material and yarn.

More pics with Bessie-boo the chicken.

Paddle boats for weary legs

Pontoon boat rides and sunburns!

Car shows…where the girls got bored at one point so they fought over each cool car yelling, “Mine, I claim it!”

Let’s see if that works…”mine!”

Nope not in my driveway…๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

Not that chicken again!!

See that rollercoaster behind us? They need a sign that says…for the physically young, not the young at heart! Seriously, fun!

Real stuffed lion at a restaurant. Leah named it Patrick.

My husband’s version of mask protection. I told him it bothers me I can’t see people’s faces if they’re smiling or not. With his rendition…everyone smiles!

We let a zucchini get real big on purpose….guess who ate it?

Yep that chicken!

Here’s our schoolroom. We are doing almost 5 hrs of hard work a day. It’s been intense. I’ve designed the day like a dance it seems. I’m working out the glitches, but for the most part I’m well pleased with what I’ve come up with the teach 2 in 5th grade and 1 in 2nd grade.

God bless

  1. Amy! Iโ€™ve missed you. ๐Ÿ’•

    I was just asking Renee if she had heard from you. I was about to email you to see if you were ok, but I forgot my blog email password and I have to reset it… again. Iโ€™m always forgetting my password.

    Those are great pictures. Wow, youโ€™ve got this homeschool stuff down!

    Iโ€™m so glad yโ€™all are okay. Looks like you had a lot of fun with those precious girls.

    Did you ride that rollercoaster? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

      1. You is brave! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

        That’s awesome. It’s been a struggle with distance learning for my youngest. She doesn’t like this version of homeschooling.I’ve never seen so many tantrums! The teacher is trying to help. I’m thankful for the work sheets and lessons. I don’t know if my daughter will let me keep her home if school goes back to normal. I think she has had enough of this staying at home stuff. Her world is upside down. This is her last year in school and then I’ve gotta look at day programs. I should’ve already, but this virus mess makes me question what to let her do next year should the rapture not have taken place by then. I’m procrastinating. ๐Ÿ˜‚

        I’m okay. Just taking life day by day. Listening to a whole lot of good Pentecostal preaching and having church at home until things calm down. My state was the new, “New York” for awhile they said. Churches are trying to reopen, but people are so afraid. It’s okay, we can give the Devil a hard time from home. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        I like this quote I saw the other day:

        “I’m no longer trying to figure out what book of Revelation we are in, I’m listening for the sound of the trumpet.” ๐Ÿ™

  2. Wow, Amy!!!

    Thank you for the update and you have been very busy being very productive!
    As you know we have 2 -17 year olds with Downs and one is also non verbal autistic-going anywhere has been difficult-the mask wearing is a REAL-problem. They start school again Thursday and are very excited to see everyone!

  4. Wow, wow, wow! So good to see you in here.
    That’s a CHOCOLATE cake! I’m guessing they tasted as good as they look.
    Summer is a great time for having fun, and it sounds like you DID. Now back to schedules and routine, and that’s good, too.
    Ask Abigail to give Bessie-boo a peck for me. ๐Ÿ˜

  5. I, for one, am glad you are back and very glad to hear everyone is safe. Bessie looks like she decided to do a photo bomb. The look๐Ÿ˜‚

    That yellow and black car๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Looks like you all had fun.

    Good Lord that’s a huge zucchini! I couldn’t let mine grow that big. I’m always making zucchini bread. I believe that one would taste rather bitter.

  6. Amy, I relished reading your update. It made my heart glad, and calm and so peaceful. Thank you for sharing, especially about โ€˜thatโ€™ chicken.

    PS: I agree about the masks hiding the smiles. That makes me sad too.
