Little Women...

Together Savanah and I have been reading "Little Women" for years! Every time we get a little time together we pick it up and jump back into life with the March family. We just finished the part about each girl having her own little part of the garden where she could grow what ever she wanted. And one of the girls planted sunflowers with the hope that at the end of the season she would have food for her chicken and her chickadees. The funny part about that is just minutes before we were saying the same thing ourselves! We planted SO many sunflowers this year and were wondering if they'd make good chicken food. Well, "Little Women" wouldn't lie, right? If you haven't read it it's a great parenting book! A great book about moral character and what makes a person genuinely good on the inside. It is a bit difficult to understand. I probably don't understand about 4 words on most pages, but we can figure them out by taking into consideration the context. Anyway, such a hard yet simple way of life...no blogs, no baseball games every night, not even school for most of the kids, no Internet, or video games, but there were lots and lots of chores! And who would work for a $1 a day? Would we starve first? Hope all is well with everyone! Ryon is looking for a new job, the one he just started a few weeks ago ended abruptly on Thursday... So, if you pray, keep us in your prayers, and those of you who have been praying for us, I really feel the strength you send us!

Of course we will pray for you! I had no idea until just now (Sunday the 5th). I can't believe it, but I hope you can arrange a better solution soon!
