Recently Andrew took the day off to take us into Atlanta to spend the day at Stone Mountain. It was BJ and Korpu's first trip to Stone Mountain Park. Due to spring break, which seems to last all of spring here in Georgia, it was a little crowded. All in all it was a wonderful day as a family.
Have you ever thought about starting your own business? What about a family business? Many large homeschool families are getting started in a family business as an opportunity to bring dad home from corporate America, train and disciple their children and provide jobs for their children. Our oldest sons are currently in the process of starting a business. There are many questions that families have like how can our we all work together, are the really old enough to run their own company, what role does the homeschool mom have in the business? Well now to help answer your questions about starting a family business....the Family Economics and Discipleship Conference.

We have just arrived home again after four wonderful days in Asheville, North Carolina. Our family attended the White Unto Harvest Conference put on by the National Center for Family Integrated Churches. At the conference we learned about the Great Commission and how it affects our family, church and community. There were so many great speakers. Two of my boys especially liked Fikret Bocek a former Muslim, who is now a pastor in Turkey. We also enjoyed Michael Gobart, Anthony Courter, Geoff Botkin, Paul Washer, Kevin Swanson, Joel Beeke, Doug Phillips, Scott Brown and more.
My favorite time of the year is fall! I love to drive through the mountains and see the leaves changing colors. I love the crisp cool weather, the taste of apple cider and the smell of wood burning stoves. Recently Andrew and I took the family to Jaemor Farms in Hall County Georgia. This year is the 100th anniversary of Jaemor Farms. Jaemor Farms had more than 700,000 visitors in 2011. We enjoyed hiking through the 8 acre corn maze. I will be sharing lots of pictures this week from our outing.
The Redman family took a day trip to Helen Georgia. We enjoyed a fun adventure at Alpine Mini Golf. The owner of the golf course gave each of the children a free golf ball to take with them at the end of the day. Our family is very competitive...even the little guys. We found that Eden is a great golfer, even at two years old! Josiah won the first nine holes and Jordan won at the end of the day. After a great day of golf we went to Western Sizzlin Buffet to have dinner.
