hope'ful·ness n.


Each and everyday....I am hopeful.

Hopeful that this pencil will need to be sharpened at least 5 times ...
Hopeful that this pencil's eraser will be so worn down that we will need to use an additional eraser...
Because that would would mean that this pencil has jotted down many spelling words, math problems, dates, names, paragraphs, scripture, doodles and so on . . .

*Ah, the "HOPE" of a homeschooling momma*


This spider was also hopeful last summer.

Hopeful that the spot on this bush (right outside of my door) would be the perfect place to lay her eggs...
Hopeful that because the web was created right under my porch, she would not have to worry about the elements of rain ruining her home...

Yeah, she had a lot of HOPE there for awhile.
The web got huge.
She caught a lot of goodies in that web.
This momma (AKA ME) eyeballed a huge nest of baby spiders right there in that bush.
Oh, she tried to hide them.
I just happen to be the champ of Hide and Seek though.

This momma (aka ME) relocated the "babies".
I guess you could say that I helped them find a new place to live.
*Right in the neighbor's ditch*
via a nice loooong stick

I hear the view is lovely from there.

I had HOPE of not seeing spiders in my home last summer.

I do not dig spiders.

I am hopeful of many things too.

Hopeful that my youngest child will sleep. Sleep is good.

I am also hopeful that my son will make good choices and not ones that cause me to be angry.

I am hopeful that you get your hopes. :)

You were good to relocate the babies, but I would not have been so kind. Love your shots.

I don't blame you, I would "relocate" it's babies too!

That is so funny because I relocate with sticks too!

I share the hope of not having spiders in my house.

I could never homeschool...I get exhausted from 1 sheet of kindergarten homework LOL

I love spiders, but only if they are outside and not big or hairy.

I HATE spiders, too. Give me the creeps! I would have probably "relocated" them another way. ;) haha. Great shots!
