Tracy / January 10, 2011

Before the end of the evening, everything, everywhere was pretty much covered in little ice pellets. Paul was on his way home from Maryland, on a business trip. It took him quite a bit longer to get home…

January 3, 2011 (Still catching up blog posts!)

Tracy / January 10, 2011

Life here continues on…. it seems that daily something new and exciting happens. I was talking with Paul last night about how surprised I’ve been this last year. For whatever reason, years ago, I pictured this season of my life being much slower. I had always thought that as the children grew, I would have more time for sewing, writing,…

Opossum in the Basement!

Tracy / January 10, 2011

Last week, Paul heard a huge crash in the basement. He and the older boys went down to find out what was happening and were met with this little guy having just eaten a little group of eggs and now going after a hen that was sitting on them. I guess we’ll call this their first “homestead defense” experience! Joshua,…

Announcing…..

Tracy / October 7, 2010

I’ve been feeling a little under the weather for the past few weeks. Nothing too bad, but definitely not normal. We thought it was probably time to confirm what we suspected: It looks like baby Lambert #11 will be joining our family in 2011! God is so good! Everyone here is excited. The younger children are already debating whether we…

Making Memories- Letters to Children

Tracy / September 28, 2010

For some time, I’ve been writing letters to my children. These aren’t really on anything specific, just random thoughts, memories, things I want to share with each child.
