Tracy / October 22, 2017

This post is about so many things, mostly Courtney’s wedding.  🙂  I’m just throwing that out there since it is probably going to seem a little scattered. Did you know you can buy these on Ebay?! I did not. I had NO idea. The last time we looked up replacements for our car, they were going to be about $30/fob.…

Happy 8th Birthday, Meredith…

Meredith's 8th Birthday- LinesFromTheVine.com

Happy Birthday, Jonathan!

Jon's 10th Birthday LinesFromTheVine.com

Jonathan Patrick is already another year older. His 9th year has practically flown by. These 9 year old’s have proven to be quite a challenge for Paul and I. Terrible 2’s? Not in this house. Three year old’s tend to be very “active” and require a lot of attention. They are smart enough to get into pretty much everything while…

Hello, old friends. It’s been quite a long time. Life has taken so many twists and turns in recent months. Each morning has brought challenges and blessings (of course, those challenges are blessings if you believe that all things happen for the good of those who love Him!). I have a new grand-boy. We’re knee deep in our little soap…

Tracy / August 29, 2015

The days are feeling cooler. Can it be? Fall seems early this year. The days seem unseasonably cool. The summer has been warm, but nothing like what I’m used to for southern summertime. My roses seem to be enjoying the cooler days. I am thankful for the milder temperatures, but I think this winter will find me missing the beautiful…

LEGO Americana Roadshow

Tracy / August 28, 2015

The LEGO Americana Roadshow has arrived in our city! Do your children play with LEGOS? They are the toy of choice in our home with my oldest children. We happened on the exhibit completely by accident but it made a perfect homeschool field trip. (KUDOS, LEGO corporation for turning something children love into something that teaches, too!) The mall had…

The Southern Museum of Flight

Tracy / August 28, 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed a visit to the Southern Museum of Flight in Birmingham, a couple of weeks ago! With Paul home more recently, we have taken the opportunity do some quick field trips with the children. This was first on our list since we have passes to another local museum that allow us to be admitted to the Southern Museum…

ETHAN Project- Enjoy the New!

When I began this summer, I never dreamed in a million years how amazing the ETHANProject would become for my family. We have enjoyed each and every week this summer. Each one has been purposeful and fun. We have made memories and enjoyed time together. We’ve revisited the place where my husband proposed. We have painted. We have cooked. We…

Unexpected Excitement

Paul heard the cats hissing from his office window a few weeks back. Look what we found in the driveway! (Well, technically the cats found him first.) The unexpected things make for the best homeschooling days, ever!

We’re Off to Tennessee!

Last week, found us in Tennessee! Paul had a work event planned for Blountsville. That is quite a drive! So close in fact, that we found ourselves accidentally crossing over into Virginia at one time. I’m always thankful for the quiet time during the day while he works. This time, I worked on some book reviews I needed to finish.…

The ETHAN Project- Week 1

I asked this morning on Facebook if there are friends from childhood you wish you could find again. Christy R., was my childhood friend. We went through a few grades together. She spent some time at my house and I spent lots of time with her. I was always amazed at her big, Italian family. I remember her mom brushing…

Texas 2015 (Part 3- Fort Worth/Dallas)

Texas is beautiful.   (Paul and I eating at an Italian diner and watching the rain fall across from our hotel.) The wildflowers are blooming. The bluebonnets especially, have come to life- they are magnificent. Our last stop on our Texas trip was Fort Worth. The very best thing I did when arriving in Fort Worth was walk to the…
