Trials and testing...what is your response??

H as it been that long since I've posted oh my!!  I guess I haven't "made the time" to blog lately, let alone really spend much time on my computer.  Life raising my family can be big rush.   Between homeschooling and mothering, my hours are consumed with family life.  All good of course...

I am so glad we'll hav
