Happy 8th Birthday, Jonathan!

Jon turned 8 years old this week. How did that happen so fast? He has been acting more “8” and less “7” recently. He is a very sweet little boy- always full of joy and big ideas and lots of things to tell me. He reminds Paul and I a great deal of Joshua when he was his age. Jon…

ETHAN Project- Week 5- Enjoy the Sky!

So, I’m a little late this week with my ETHAN Project posting. We have had such a full week- my computer time has been low on the priority list.

This week’s Ethan Project…

Book Review: Jesus Calling for Little Ones

Some of the sweetest family time takes place during evening devotions each day. The day is winding down, everyone is just a little more quiet, less busy, and more relaxed. My children are extra-snuggly. 🙂 It’s a perfect time to grab a book and share some peaceful moments with your children. This month, Tommy Nelson sent me a copy of…

ETHAN Project- Week 3- Enjoy the Flavor

Are you enjoying your summer? We have been having a blast! Last week’s Ethan Project challenge to Share the View was very special for our family. I took two of my boys to the place where Paul proposed to me so many years ago. Thinking back to that time has been good for my marriage. It was a special memory…

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!

Happy 4th Birthday, Darby!

Darby’s 4th birthday was actually last week. I’m just now finding time to post these photos! 😀 We had an
