  1. lovin' that red red rose girl! so beautiful, great composition & processing!

    Such a great idea to be thankful, i too am participating in a positivity project on Flickr, so awesome to pick out moments of my day & write them down :) Happy Thursday!

  2. Love the rose photo, such rich beautiful color! I am so blessed that I've had all eight of my children naturally(3 @ home). I've never been on a homeschool retreat but it sounds awesome! I LOVE hot tea and tea parties. Saturday and Sundays weather was PERFECT. If only I could have 365 day like that, but then I wouldn't appreciate it as much. That is impressive that your son cleaned and organized all by himself. I still have to give detailed instruction to some of mine that are much older than that.

  3. I'm not familiar with the new WW point system, but I know it works. Praying!

  4. Thanks Bridget! I think it's similar in a lot of ways, but different in that they no longer make you count fruits and veggies if they are raw. I'm excited.

  5. 8 natural and 3 at home! Isn't God good? I love natural birth! Do you have all your birth stories recorded? Love to read them!

  6. Candra

    I havent recorded any on my blog but that is a good idea! Maragaret asked me to share about the last one at the upcoming homebirth meeting. I think that is how I found your blog - through one of the emails to the homebirth group. I found your blog amusing and inspiring and just kept coming back to read. I didn't realize you were hosting the homebirth meeting until I read the latest invite yesterday after Margaret asked if I would share.

  7. That rose is just gorgeous Candra. What a pretty picture. Glad you had fun at the conference. You sound very excited : )

  8. Thankful for so many of the same things.
    I am so glad we are doing WW together.
    Nation's excitement was awesome!

  9. I love hot tea, too. It works well with those fruits and veggies and makes you feel a little full...for a little while.

    The kids played outside for 5 hours? That's awesome! The rose is beautiful.

    Have a great week ahead!
