What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Curiousity killed the....

I have a few questions


would love any input you all have to offer.

Answer me! No pressure. But do it NOW! ;-)


Inquiry #1:
What is your opinion on sharing beds? I have always been a one bed for all kind of girl, but have recently been considering having the girls sleeping in a kingsize bed together. I figure it could fit three or four (little) girls. Completely teetering on the fence about what would be best. What are your thoughts? Have you ever done it? Do your children do it? Do they/you love or hate it?

It would certainly cut down on washing sheets. (And bed space). And btw, I am talking about same gender. Just so we are clear.

Inquiry #2:
For those homeschoolers out there~ when is your homeschool day over? Do you shut the school books in the morning, afternoon or work all the way until evening (though sporatically) ? I'd love to know how long the homeschooling takes you each day (realizing, of course, it changes often)

Inquiry #3:

I have an almost 8 (in two weeks!) year old girl and a 5 year old boy that have expressed serious interest in receiving mail. As part of their writing assignments this school year, I would love to get them each a penpal in order to encourage enthusiasm in writing and to maybe fulfill that yearning for mail (and yes, it is yearning). If you have a child who would be willing to be a penpal for either Corynn or Andrew~ please contact me. I'd like a letter to/from to happen once a month during the school year. I am sure my children will be including stickers, artwork, etc. in their envelopes so you mustn't be opposed to receiving junk treasures along with the letters.

Inquiry #4:

I am planning on a homemade Christmas again this year. (I have a few presents stored up that need to be moved out but everything else will be handmade). Just curious~ has anyone else started thinking/planning/making Christmas presents yet?

Any awesome ideas I can steal?

Inquiry #5:

I have been pining to watch a good old hardworking-woman-in-an-apron, type of movie like Run the Wild Fields or Babettes Feast. Any suggestions?

Inquiry #6:

Does everyone know what c'est la vie mean? (OOPS. Edited because I MEANT TO WRITE Joie de vivre. THAT is what I was contemplating as a business name. It means 'joy of life' or 'joy of living'. Maybe Matt is right...if I can't even get the name down MYSELF. hehehe)

I have been considering it as a business name and I think it epitomizes what I want to convey. Matt thinks no one will know what it means or how to pronounce it. What do you think?

I guess that is all I can think of for now. I knew I had a few more, but, alas. I have the memory of a 98 year old. :-(
