#BloggingAtoZChallenge – “B” is for Boys, Bositerous, and blogging

B

This is the second post for my Blogging A to Z challenge.  “B” is for boys, boisterous, and blogging.  Obviously, being the mom of three sons, I need to mention boys.  Boys are energetic and constantly on the move.  Our three sons definitely keep things lively around our home.  There is never a dull moment.  Sometimes, it is hard to get a word in edgewise.  I love my sons though.  They defintely keep me on my toes.  There is no way to predict what they will do from one minute the next.

This leads to my second “B”, which is boisterous.  Our sons are definitely boisterous. The Noah Webster 1828 dictionary has this to say:

Boisterous
BOIS’TEROUS, adjective

1. Loud; roaring;

This certainly fits my sons.  When they decide to get rowdy, I can pretty much be guaranteed that at some point our daughter will get involved in whatever mischief they are making.  Sometimes I feel as if there is a constant roar in our home.  But I recognize that all too soon they will be out of the house and our home will be too silent.

My final “B” is blogging.  I began blogging about 8 years ago when we moved from eastern North Carolina to Pennsylvania.  At first it was just a way to hopefully keep our family in North Carolina up to date on what was going on with us.  Then it became a way to also help me record what was going on with our homeschool each year.  Then it became a way to to try to hopefully help other homeschoolers.  While my following is small right now.  I hope to increase that this year.  I have found I love writing on the blog. I also love sharing what we are doing, what is working for us, and what I am looking at changing.

So what does “B” bring to mind for you?  I would love to hear from you.

“K” is for Kids and Kingdoms

K

I am still taking part in the “Blogging A to Z” challenge, NaBloPoMo and the Ultimate Challenge for April.  Today’s letter for the Blogging A to Z challenge is “K”.  “K” is for kids.  We have four fantastic kids.  We have three sons and a daughter.  They are the light of my life.  I love them with all my heart.  We homeschool all four of them, which means  I get to spend time with them.  Our kids keep life exciting.  With them there is never a dull moment in our home.  They constantly amaze me with the things they do.

“K” is also for kingdoms.  The most important kingdom is the kingdom of God.  Then of course there are all the kings that are mentioned in the Bible.  Finally there are the other kingdoms which occur throughout history.  These kingdoms provide us with direction and guidance.  They help us know what to do and what not to do.

What comes to mind when you hear the letter “K”.  I look forward to hearing from you.
