It has been a while! My Thanksgiving page has been out of order for a long time, so I am finally finding time to fix it. Below are the notebooking pages. Further down, you will find links to my other Thanksgiving related pages.

The Pilgrims were good people.
They lived in England.
The Pilgrims liked to go to church.
Their king was not kind to them.
He would not let them go to their own church.
So they left England and went to Holland.

The Pilgrims lived in Holland.
They lived there for twelve years.
They saw the wind-mills. .
The wind-mills grind the corn.
The wind-mills pump the water.
The Dutch people live in Holland.
The Dutch boys and girls wear wooden shoes.
The Dutch people were kind to the Pilgrims.

The Pilgrims did not wish to live in Holland always.
They wanted a land of their own.
So they sailed across the sea.
The name of their boat was the Mayflower.
It was not a large boat.
The great green waves tossed the Mayflower about.
The Pilgrims sailed a long time over the sea.

The Pilgrims landed at Plymouth.
It was winter and very cold.
There were no houses.
The Pilgrims went into the woods.
They cut down trees and made log houses.
They made a church and a schoolhouse.

The Pilgrims met the Indians.
The Indians were kind to them.
They taught them how to hunt.
They taught them how to fish.
The Indians gave corn to the Pilgrims.
They showed them how to make corn bread.

The Pilgrims had to work very hard.
The winter was very long and cold.
The Pilgrims lived in log houses.
These houses were not warm.
Food was very scarce.
Sometimes the Pilgrims did not have enough to eat.

After awhile the Pilgrims did not have so hard a time.
Their corn and vegetables grew and they had a fine harvest.
They caught wild turkeys in the woods.
Soon their barns were full.
They said, "Let us have a day of Thanskgiving.
Let us thank God for His blessings."
So they had the first Thanksgiving Day.

Hey everyone! It has been a long while.

Today I wanted to share MaryEllen's entry for the Doodle4Google Contest. She wasn't one of the chosen, but I am too proud not to share. 🙂

She has begun to use the computer with her drawing. We finally set her up with her own desk and computer. She did this all digitally, one of her first projects.

Doodle4Google Entry

Here is a snippet from what she wrote on the entry form. "Drawing is something that I love to do, and I basically taught myself how. I also like to read fantasy and sci-fi books."

I think she did an excellent job. I am encouraging her to start her own blog, maybe as a summer project.

Hope y'all are doing fine. I will post again soon.



Lymphatic and Immune System Notebooking Pages
Wow, it has been ten months since I blogged last. I am peeking in today to put up another set of notebooking pages that I have sitting on my hard drive. I believe I have two more sets after this to put up.

This set is for the lymphatic and immune systems. If using Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology, this would be for chapter 13.

Seasonal Skirts
I joined a group of ladies to share what we wear during the seasons, skirt or dress-wise. This blog hop is hosted by Dusty at To The Moon and Back.

I wear skirts most of the time with the exception of a comfy pair of sweats when I feel like lounging around the house.

My decision to wear mainly skirts was more of a personal decision than a religious one. During the last seven years, I have found them to be quite comfortable and I now prefer them over pants. I never did like how I looked in jeans and especially slacks. I don't have much of a backside, so pants just hung.

Skirts actually add to my figure and I don't have to be self-conscious of my rear.

I also chose to switch from short skorts to longer skirts when it hit me that I am the example of what a women should look like for my daughter. And not only my daughter, but my son also. Ouch! Out went the short shorts and skorts.

Here are a few outfits I wore the last few months. The day I wrote this post, 04-19-14, it is still chilly outside, so long sleeve shirts or sweaters are still in. I *think* the chilly season is at a close though. Yay!

Spring Skirt

Don, my husband, likes me in collar shirts. I have this shirt in a few colors. My wardrobe is fairly simple.

Spring Skirt

Jean skirts are my thing! They are so easy to dress up or down. They are also comfortable. During the late fall, all winter and into spring, I wear mostly jean skirts. They are heavier which keeps me warmer.

MaryEllen wears leggings under her skirts to stay warm, something I haven't tried yet but should.

Spring Skirt

Trying to make this fun. I am not much for taking pictures of myself. Being part of the Seasonal Skirts group definitely is not easy because of that, but fun nonetheless.

Sorry about the blurry picture. Not sure what happened.


We had a few 'teaser' days when it was just beautiful outside, reaching into the 80's. But, they only lasted a few days. I am so waiting for summer.

Spring Skirt

Argh! These pictures came out a little fuzzy, but they will do.

I don't tuck my shirts in my skirts (hey it rhymes) because I am tall and it just looks weird. Because of my long legs, I need my torso to look balanced. Tucking in my shirt will make my torso too short.

That is one thing I hated about the work world when I had to wear uniforms, slacks and a shirt tucked in. Yuck! Glad those days are over.

To stay warm around the house, I will wear a thin sweater over my blouse. It allows me to easily shed it if I get too hot or add it if I get too cold. I don't like stuffy houses, so I like the windows or front door open even though it is cold out, at least for a little while.

This is our land line phone for when the electricity goes out and our wireless phones stop working.

Spring Skirt

I just noticed I didn't do any back shots. Oops! Maybe next time.

That is pretty much my dress for this season. Hopefully next month it will warm up a little more.

This is where I get my jean skirts. They send out coupon codes often when you sign up for their newsletter.

Visit my fellow bloggers as they too blog about seasonal skirts.
