I’m glad to be on to a new day. Jacob, is feeling much better today. He ended up with 8 stitches…though we’re not positive. The stitches on one end of his finger are so close together, it’s hard to tell exactly. We’ve already opened his bandage and cleaned it today. He’s not in too much pain (I’m so glad….). I’m…

Where’s Josh?

Tracy / September 24, 2011

I believe God does big things. Some times, they seem unbelievable. We couldn’t in our best plans imagine the things that HE determines to be our path. So, I’ve been asked a lot, “where is Josh?”. It’s a long story…and one that weaves it’s way through the last several months. Some time ago, Joshua’s employer took a new job. At…

Visiting Grandmother

This has been a VERY difficult week in our home, but the Lord always gives us things to be thankful for….. Paul drove me up to spend time with my Grandmother today. What a sweet blessing. There are so many little things I hope to remember…hearing Meredith tell her over and over how pretty her hair was, listening to her…

Life is Changing….

When did I think that life would slow down as my children aged? In many more ways, life has just become so much busier, and much more complicated. Having older children means their lives are also becoming more complicated. It’s not a sad time, (well, seeing your babies growing up is a little sad)…it’s just different. This last week, we…

We were blessed with an evening snow on Wednesday. Not just any snow…the most beautiful, big snowflakes fell right after dark. My youngest children had just been tucked into bed, but the announcement of snow, had them jumping up and running outside…which started a snowball fight on the front porch. Notice the older children don’t even have on coats. Even…

Tracy / February 9, 2011

There is a day, that arrives at some point– you may not even notice at first, when you realize your children are grown. On this day, I have watched my oldest son, Joshua, put in a full day’s work in our yard. He has cleared years of under-brush left growing by the previous owners of our home. It’s been hard…

Tracy / November 14, 2010

I’m still catching up pics and posts. These are from Courtney and Joshua’s recent graduation fiesta: Courtney painted the cute sign! Ben waiting for guests to arrive. He was SO excited! Littles playing in the library while the adults were talking in the family room.

July 22nd, 2010

I started this week with grand plans… We’re finishing two (count ’em TWO) websites. One is just for homeschoolers, the other for our church– We’re almost done with the church site, and the other at least has a header graphic (thanks to Courtney). One of my biggest plans, was to finish really fleshing out family goals for the older children…

Pics of the Garden

So much of our time has been spent inside, but we have managed a minute here or there to begin establishing our garden. We had a few existing fruit trees when we moved in, but since, we’ve planted 14 more, 4 blueberries and have started the task of building and planting square foot beds. random chick (well, not quite a…

Wild Adventures 2

Tracy / October 6, 2006

It’s Frugal Friday, hosted by Biblical Womanhood. My tip for today is (I don’t know, maybe this one makes me just “cheap”, LOL!) that I repackage cheaper shampoos into my “children’s” themed shampoo bottle! They think that they are getting pampered with the cute little fishy shampoo…the never realize that I just keep refilling the bottle! (Let’s just keep that…

Laundry and Storms

Tracy / September 13, 2006

Hello everyone, My name is Joshua Lambert. I am posting for Mom today. As I was looking out the window today I saw our clothes hanging out on the line, then when I looked up……I saw rain clouds. Now I don’t know if you read Mom’s posting about the time when we had laundry hanging up. I thought I would…
