Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Equip Academy meets Veritas at Home

We are having a marvelous time with my dear blogging friend Sharon and her husband Jeff. Sharon and Jeff are here for a vacation to the U.S. from their home in Australia. They are part way through a driving tour of the western United States that most Americans would dream of taking.

I'm so grateful they made the time to swing by Kansas and visit our family. It is a blessing from God to meet this dear sister in Christ face to face! Our blogging comments and emails have been replaced with lively conversation for the week.

With less than two weeks to go before our baby is expected, there wasn't any way that we could meet up with them out West, but it has really been wonderful to have them in our home.

On their first evening here, they had Australian gifts for each of us, but the family gift of a didgeridoo is probably the kids' favorite!

On Saturday we ventured out to the lake for a boat ride and picnic. This was just the second time we've had my dad's boat out this season and the first time for putting up the awning. 

Spring is just arriving here and April weather can be unpredictable. The day began a bit chilly and windy, but after we made it out to a quiet cove and beached the boat, we basked in the sun for about three hours, picnicking on chicken salad sandwiches. Our kids happily ran up and down the sand bar, kicking and splashing their feet in the water, searching for shells, building sand crocodiles and castles, and having a carefree time.

Great photos. Thanks for sharing the fun you are having. You all look really happy. Enjoy the rest of your time. DID you fit a didgeridoo in your luggage???? That's astonishing.

Praying for you Amy as you approach birth day.

Hi Meredith,
We just put it on as oversize luggage, separate to our suitcase. It helped that while we took 2 suitcases, on the way over we squished everything into the medium size suitcase and then packed the medium suitcase into the large suitcase. So we only took two pieces of luggage, and the didg didn't take us over the limit. But we did carry it in one of those Indonesian weaving bags. Do you know the ones I mean? It was very common to see tourists carrying them around in Darwin.
Anyway, good to hear from you. Amy and I are having a great time talking and talking and talking together.
