4H Animal Science Quiz Bowl/Skill-A-Thon 2016

Tracy / January 12, 2016

It has been MONTHS since I’ve had time to do much blogging. Paul’s new job position, the holidays, baby preparations, and LOTS of illness in our home in recent months have made it almost impossible to sit down to catch up on our family blog. I’m going to try and catch things up a little at a time. One of…

Timothy Cooking

He still loves to cook! I would love to help foster this love of cooking with some classes. I’ve looked for children’s classes in my area. In the past, I’ve found a few but they seemed “dumbed down”– not classes where he could really learn some new skills. Any ideas??

My Boys

Paul and I try weekly, to take some of our children to town with us. We run errands and do our shopping…we enjoy their company. This past week, I had the privilege of sharing time with Jacob and Timothy. We had quite a bit to do, but managed to stop and pick up lunch. I’m a blessed mama. I sure…

Cooking With the Boys

Tracy / November 30, 2011

Homeschooling isn’t all about books and essays. Most of the time, the best teaching happens as you go on, about your daily life. Since we began homeschooling (which feels like the beginning of time now!), we have tried to include the children in our day-to-day activities. Some of these things seem so routine, it’s hard to remember to include our…

Glow Bath

Tracy / October 4, 2011

Tonight’s fun….glow bath– we like to shake things up just a little from time to time. *smile* So, the ingredients for this night of fun…..a bathtub, a handful of glow sticks from the dollar store and a bunch of littles: This little person didn’t want to come out of the tub!

From the Mouths of Babes…

We’ve had horrible weather this afternoon. Timothy came into the office and said, “if we get blown away in the storm, then we know that it was God’s divine will”. Motherhood is just awesome!!! 🙂

Timothy’s 9th Birthday

Tracy / February 22, 2011

Some quick pictures from Timothy’s birthday on Sunday: Opening gifts Courtney, Jessica and I made him a “Kung Zhu” cake. It’s not my best cake ever, but for a first try, I was happy. Timothy REALLY liked it–I guess that’s what really matters. Because his birthday fell on Sunday, we also took a cake to church. This one was really…

Cooking Class

Tracy / February 12, 2011

Timothy (8) has an interest in cooking. Not just any interest, but I think if it’s possible, he could be a budding “foodie”, even at his young age. He’s had this fascination since he was about 3…always right under me while I’m cooking…always asking questions. It’s not at all uncommon to walk into the family room on a morning when…

It would seem summer is winding to an end. Though the days are still hot, hot, hot, the evenings are definitely feeling cooler. I think we’re only weeks away from opening the windows!! The house always smells so nice with fresh air. Before I forget, please be praying for my little nephew. I’m really not at liberty to discuss details,…

Family Schedule

Tracy / August 21, 2006

Good Monday Morning! I hope that this finds you having had a restful and peaceful weekend. We had a very enjoyable weekend. My Mom came for a visit, which we always enjoy. We cooked roast, creamed potatoes, lima beans, carrot slaw, homemade rolls, and brownies for desert. We did have some excitement in that the oven stopped working properly about…
