We had a huge flood.

Yesterday we had a huge amount of rain. It was astounding the amount of rain that came down. Our street was flooded and the children all went out and ran around in the rain. The rain was needed so we are thankful for this huge rain. Steve took some video's but they are huge at the moment (50 mb) so we need to look and see if we can reduce the quality and put it up.

I have everything ready for Tom's homeschool. On Friday the children had a day of school because my friend Di left her middle child with us while she and Mark went to a funeral. Tom did some maths, reading, writing and I gave him a big spelling test to see what level he is at.

On Saturday he asked if he could do more maths so I got his book out and he did it for about 5 minutes and decided he wanted to play instead.

I have started cooking meals for while I am away. Last night I did pasties and 160 muffins. Today I will cook a few more meals to go in the freezer but the bulk of the cooking for Steve and the children will be done during the week. I have got a couple of great recipes from Esther's Kitchen and
Are We There Yet? From Esther's kitchen I am making the Mushroom Pasta and from Are We There Yet?, I am making the Beef and Cornbread Bake .

God bless
Therese

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
