As I sit here listening to fireworks going off in my neighborhood, with the sky sparkling and the scent of smoke all around, patriotism is in full force. Yankee Doodle is even being sung on a 4th of July special on TV. We’ve enjoyed a day of hiking and eating with family. I’m thankful for […]

Dinosaur Eggs produce Patience!

We are a homeschool family, our weeks are full to bursting with spelling bees, math drills, and geography trivia for fun learning! When our kiddos do really well, we treat them with a few dollars and drive out to our local Dollar General. They get their own little yellow basket and scan the isles for that […]

25 Days of Family Advent

Christmastime is such a wonderful time of year! I absolutely love the warmth of cozy rooms dimly lit so Christmas tree lights flicker with magical delight. A fire roaring in the fireplace with a good book or a great movie are always inviting too.   But as believers we ready ourselves for so much more! We […]

Clean Mangers

  I have the privilege of having my 2 year old granddaughter visit my home for weeks at a time.  It gets a little crazy because we are so busy having fun.  My grand daughters have their own room at my house – decorated in red, yellow and black with Mickey Mouse on the wall.  […]

Laughing All the Way

Snow Storm Survival

We’re facing yet another snow day, and I found myself complaining a little about all the bad weather we’ve had lately. I even offered to go out and scrape my own road if the schools would just LET MY KIDS GO TO SCHOOL! Then I remembered The Ice Storm of 2009. In case you don’t […]

Christmas Fun

I’ve been wanting to write about Christmas here, but you know how it is this time of year…something keeps coming up. There are several serious issues that could be discussed on a blog at Christmas time: what to do about Santa? was Jesus really born in December? white lights or color? Real tree or fake? […]

Another Season

It’s a new season in my life—one that will, at least for extended reading periods, require reading glasses. Now this may not seem like a big deal to some, but this is yet another mile marker that seemingly happened overnight. Over the weekend, I noticed that my eyes felt extremely fatigued and at times, my […]

“New” Taste Buds

The other day, I ate a K C donut–the only name/reason to EVER eat a donut! (Complete name not used purposefully.)  After the second bite, I noticed a “film” of sorts on the roof of my mouth.  The more bites….the heavier this “film.”  (I mean I had to keep eating to see if the film would […]
