Welcome to Friendship Friday Link Up! Here you will find a gathering place of mostly special needs families, families with chronically ill members, and homeschoolers, but you don’t have to be one of the above to share!
I value our online friendships and appreciate your support!
We had some unwanted excitement the other day when we were stopped in a state police car search on our way to Lowes. They were searching all homes and cars in the vicinity.
Our driver’s side window doesn’t work so my husband, who was driving, held up his hands for the officer to see and explained the situation. The officer along with the four other officers ther kept their hands on their ASSAULT RIFLES the whole time while searching our car! It was actually very terrifying!
The officer informed us that there had been a home invasion just a couple of miles from our house and they were searching for four armed and dangerous people!
We had never locked our front door when we left, which is not an uncommon occurrence for us way out in the middle of nowhere, because this type of criminal activity has been up until now unheard of around here!
Needless to say, after the search we turned the car around and went back home to make sure the kids were okay. We could not get home fast enough for me!
Later that same night we heard that they had captured two of perps in the woods behind Bethany’s speech therapist’s house and the next morning they had all four of them in custody, thank God!
Other than that excitement, some much better goings on at our house is that Rachel has returned from her summer of teaching English in China!
Rachel, her co-teacher, and their students!
Jeremiah had been begging me to cut his hair for a very long time, but I couldn’t find the hair clippers. He was so happy to finally get his hair cut that he let me take his picture!
Bethany was very happy to receive her new school books in the mail! We also found this cool Bowling Dice Game
It is a little complicated and confusing to play so it has not become a fast favorite. I need to figure out how to modify the rules for her.
