Scout Night

It’s scout night at our home. We usually spend our day doing school, preparing dinner, and getting everyone ready to walk out the door for scouts. I’m trying to get into the habit of going to the scout meetings as a family again instead of just sending the boys. We all had such a good time when we used to…

Toothless Grins…

I‘ve been still working away today. Family businesses are a passion for my family and I. We hope to have enough profit generated from our businesses that it will eventually flow into income for our children should they decide that this is where the Lord would lead them. We are working on a website for families wishing to begin this…

Just Say No!

We’re pretty good around here today. We always have something going on. Today we’ve been sealing seams in our new hall flooring. We chose composite vinyl tile. I thought that it might look too “industrial” for a home but I’m really pleased so far. It’s been very inexpensive, very easy to install and seems to really be withstanding the floor…

Just Smile!

Today is Monday. We’ve been trying to finish up some things that we started over the weekend. We’re also cleaning pet cages and doing school work. We had a pretty good weekend. My Mom came to visit and made beef stew for my crew. It was delicious! I truly enjoy weekends that involve getting something done and allowing me and…

What Are You Teaching?

Thursday! Where do my days go? It feels like Monday rolls into Tuesday and so on until my week is gone! It’s been a good week, I have no complaints. Today is a very special day. Long ago, in a land far away (at least across town) a little boy was born. He would later grow up to be my…

The Well Trained Mind

Spring is in the air….it doesn’t seem like there will be too many more freezing days. I’m so excited, my peach trees are blooming. Maybe we’ll manage some peaches this year. If so, I’ve already got plans to ask my friend, Christy, to share her peach cobbler recipe. She was so sweet to share some that she had made with…

They Are HIS Gift!

Tuesday morning! Well, it’s actually afternoon here. It’s been a nice morning. I’m happy to say that we have a registered domain so it should be a little easier to find us on the web now. I’m thankful today that my Mom’s Dr. appointment went well. She has another today…please pray health for her. I’m also thankful for all that…

Loving Your Children Enough

Today is Monday….Monday’s at my home are always full of adventure. We always spend the day catching up from the weekend and trying to get organized for the upcoming week. I’m trying to re-plan for the week so this actually takes place on Friday or Saturday….but I’m not there yet! This weekend was good. My hubby is home after traveling…

The Hand That Rocks The Cradle

Today has been a pretty good day. The weather is in the mid 60’s, perfect for playing outside! My older children and I lingered for a while out on the deck waiting on a friend to arrive and pick them up for an afternoon play date…it’s beautiful. My prayer requests today are for our cub scout group. We’re trying to…

Do You Love Him?

I love my family. I’m so thankful for the little smiles that come and pile into my bed in the morning just to get a quick hug and kiss! This morning I was looking at my baby daughter, Emma, thinking how blessed I am to have her….just like the rest….I’m so thankful to God that He let me borrow her,…

The Girl I Used To Be

I actually entered this into the computer over the weekend, but am just getting around to uploading it today…. I don’t normally post on the weekends but tonight I found this poem that I had saved from many years ago and in light of a news story that I heard on ABC this week called “Mommy Wars” it was a…
