Shake It Up

There was an earthquake here today.  Where you ask?  In Virginia.  Not just a tremor, but a full on 5.8 earthquake.  It lasted about a minute.  We are all ok, just a little shaken up (HA!). 

 Chris was already home from school and we were sitting downstairs discussing his day.  At first I thought the shaking was coming from a big truck driving by and then it kept shaking and became more intense.  Chris ran up to grab Hannah from the bed where she was napping.  Luke ran out of his room and shouted, "Is this an earthquake!!!!!"  Hayley was asleep and woke up from the shaking.  She was upset and came downstairs with everyone and we all stood in the door frame.  It shook for about 15 more seconds and then it was over.  I snapped a few shots of some of the pictures in the house afterward.

Thankfully, no one was hurt and we didn't have any damage.  But boy, did it get my heart racing.  That was the last thing I expected on a Tuesday in VA. 

In other news:

I finally finished our family gallery wall in the den. 
I am really happy with how it turned out. 

This baby is going to be 2 in 2.5 months. 


The school room is up and ready to go.  Only 2 more weeks and Steele Family school will be in session. 
I have been working on lesson plans for the first few weeks. 
Getting so excited about this new adventure with our kiddos.

I still haven't taken pictures of our bedroom and the guest room.  Our room is currently home to all of our 6 year old's toys from her room.  We are in the middle of a lesson about obedience.  That is a post for another day.  In short, those photos will be up soon.

  1. I don't know how I missed that you guys are homeschooling... but I'm so glad I saw it here!! Scott has just been accepted into the Army's PA school, so we'll be spending next school year in Texas and the following year at some other major Army base. I'm planning to homeschool the girls and will certainly need lots of advice. Any tips for books I should read/ things I should research now while they are still in public school full time and I have time on my hands.... before the move??


Your comments make me smile! Thanks!
