Blog Makeover!

Discover Their Gifts Header copy

I am so excited to share with you that my blog Discover Their Gifts has just undergone a blog makeover!!! woo hooo!

I asked Jolanthe from Relevant Designs to redesign the look and feel of my blog.  Can I just say… I am so delighted and pleased with her work!

Since I primarily blog about my family and homeschooling, I wanted the blog theme to feature the look and style of each of my girls next to their pet buddies. 

My blog tag line is .. “homeschooling adventures in the country’.  I derive most of my blogging ideas from our adventures in the country around our own home. Our curriculum, My Father’s World, assigns nature walks each week. 

The girls spend a lot of time outdoors riding their 4-wheeler, jeep car, swinging with friends and chasing run away pets.  This is one of the greatest benefits of homeschooling: my kids get to spend a lot of time playing with their toys, enjoying their siblings and friends, and exercising outdoors in our wooded acreage.

Back to my blog header

Daughter 1 copyMy oldest daughter, Arianna, is featured in pink. She stands along side her sweet dachshund, Lola.  Her puppy has been her best buddy and companion.  Lola loves to go on walks, chase the neighborhood cats and deer, and sit in the kid’s wagon and jeep car.

Arianna will soon be 8 years old.  She is shy, intelligent, discerning of people, nurturing, gifted in organization, and asks a million questions in any given hour!  She is a joyful gift from our Lord!

Check out her earrings.  She saved her own money to get them pierced.  I cringed but she’s been a trooper at caring for them!

 My youngest daughter, Marissa, will soon be 6 years old.  I told her we were not going to celebrate her birthday so she would remain 5.. not sure she agreed with me.

Marissa loves glitter, sparkle, high heal shoes, and dressing as a princess.  She is standing next to her rotten main coon cat, Gilbert.  His job is to catch moles from our yard, but instead he must just hang out with them. 

Marissa is free spirited, impulsive, single focused, charming with two big dimples, sensitive, intelligent and very confident.  Also, she can’t seem to keep her shoes on outdoors not matter what the weather conditions are for the day.

Well ~ that’s a little bit about why I chose the look and feel of my new blog!
