Show and Tell Friday

This is my first show and tell Friday. Since I really have not prepared for this ahead of time I thought, hmmm what can I show and tell? Well I will show and tell my family and share a little of who we are.

We are a homeschooling family that lives in NY. I am a SAHM that is striving hard to be the Keeper at home God has called me to be. It is a daily challenge for me, but through prayer God helps me through the day. I enjoy being involved in our Church activities, scrapbooking, faithbooking, crafts, cooking, gardening and recently canning and making jelly.
This is my darling Husband Matt, he is going to be thrilled at the photo I chose to post today. He is my best friend next to our Lord and Savior. He works full time 50+ hours a week and also has started toward his BA degree in Biblical Studies with a minor in Ministry. He has been called by God into ministry. We are very excited for this new chapter in our lives. He enjoys woodworking in his spare time....when ever that is! Even though he is very busy he always takes time for us. He helps out in the homeschooling part in the evening...he is the math teacher....YEAH!!

These 3 clowns...I mean children are our crew. The one in the middle is our oldest, Katrina, she is 14 going on 40! She enjoys being in the kitchen with me. Just yesterday she helped me peel 8 quarts of tomatoes that we canned this morning. The one in the grey shirt is Hannah she is 11 and refuses to grow up...she wants to be a little girl her whole life! LOL She enjoys all things girl, princess, American Girl Dolls, Barbie. The boy of the family is Andrew he is 8 (soon to be 9 in October) he is 100% boy. He has started learning how to work with wood along side my Husband. He also is very interested in becoming a firefighter (as a former firefighter it does my heart well!!)
So that is us in a nut shell. To check out more Show and Tell stop by Kelli's blog There is no place like home and check them out or like me join in on the fun.
