Treasures ...

Life keeps rolling with its high and low here in grandma place . I try to live our life as normal and happy as possible even if the circumstances are not the best. Sometime I succeed. Sometimes not much. But I always always try to keep in mind in which Hands we are and I make all the effort to put a smile on my face and do my job : love, serve, nurture my wonderful family .
Yesterday we found out this little bookstore. It sells only old books, both new and used ones. Call it the homeschool-heaven. We came out with two very full  and heavy bags and a very light bill ( 35 euros !!! ).
Here the kids books :

the most amazing thing is that the kids chose a lot of *school books* as their treat for the day.
I'm sure all the homeschooler can well understand what a great pleasure is when for the kids doing
 school works it's a fun way to spend time.

Then today we did some Christmassy stuff. We all love so much cut and glue and create. And we lov it even more if we're all together around the table ...

scissors , glue, coloured cardboards , what else could we ask more ?




Leo's soldier

Gaia's card

Too long ....

... such a long story can't be made short in anyway. So I will jump to the end. At the moment we're in Italy. We're guests at my mom's place. Yes it is hard. Yes we miss being on the road. Yes I hope i will never hurt my own children as my mother does with me on daily basis. Yes I wish they will never feel so sad and alone because of me. But YES. YES. We're together. Yes we love each other even more. We're close, even more. We're homeschooling ( with Clonlara school home based program if you're interested please feel free to ask ). We're not sure what the Lord has in store for us, but we fully trust Him, and in this way we can keep living our life with joy and not feeling lost. Faith it's a great thing.

Here some updated pic. Did you miss them ?

TADAAAH ! Milla lost her first tooth on october the 2nd, in Finland. She is growing. And I love love her.

We even enjoyed a tiny bit of almost snow on october 14.
We were camping in Helsinki at that time.

Sleeping at granma. She is so beautiful and peaceful.

Life it is so strange. It is a rollercoaster. It is scaring. It is wonderful. I love my life so much and I'm so so grateful with the Lord, for what He has granted me.

Shalom !
