A Song for the Discouraged Heart

A Song for the Discouraged Heart

Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come, Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heaven and home, When Jesus is my portion. My constant friend is He: His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me; His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches […]

A bird’s eye view of the last few months

A bird’s eye view of the last few months

Having a fourth child is hard. (Betcha thought I was gonna say something uplifting and inspiring. HA.) Even our great days (and there are many!) are just plain ol’ hard. So much talking, touching, needing, crying, diaper changing, sock losing, complaining, laughing, screaming, eating, messing, cleaning (I’m really tempted to keep this list going…forever. But […]

Crusoe’s First Days

Crusoe’s First Days

Guys, I’m super sorry, but this post will be short on words and looooong on photos. No time for editing! He’s already three weeks old now! And we’re all doing great. So great. In sleep, in health, in nursing, in harmony. We’re having a blast (like literally a blast…of NOISE…shew, these kids are loud). So […]

While we were waiting…

While we were waiting…

Crusoe was due to join our family around September 6th. We’ve had babies as early as 9 days before their due date and as late as on their due date. But when my friends Bryanne and Alisha went a week over with their 4ths, I had this sneaking suspicion that this was foreshadowing for our 4th. (Turns […]

Pushing Liddi

Pushing Liddi

James is a funny guy. He was quite the little daredevil as a kid. Making ramps, catching animals, running all over town. But put his kids into the equation, and he has a mini heart attack. Every.single.time. And this little car with his baby daughter inside, pushed fast by his bigger kids, gets that heart […]

April 2016

CORBAN Corban joined his first t-ball league this spring. Just over an hour once or twice a week. We’ve enjoyed spending time together as a family cheering him on! (And picking flowers, running around, etc.) He’s our little athletic one, that boy. Uncle Jon came for a visit on his way home from college. Liddi […]

Writing’s in the family.

Corban and Jaeda have been feeling the work that comes with making money. They are starting to value their efforts, and, after several failed Dollar Tree purchases (failed meaning broke while we were yet in the parking lot), they’ve also come to appreciate the value of their hard-earned money…and that TJMaxx helps them stretch their […]

March 2016

I do so hate when my babies are sick, but they just never seem to be as still (and precious).  Liddi’s started walking right at 13 months (par for the course around here) and was ready to start scootering the next week. Our weekly book one week was The Gingerbread Man, so naturally we had to […]

Cousin Timmy & a Lego Show

Cousin Timmy & a Lego Show

Our lil’ cuz turned TWO right after Liddi turned ONE. So naturally, we had to celebrate…at the Essenhaus… …Lego-style! (Seriously, we just sat and stared and this whole complex Lego city block– made by one of my siblings’ teachers, amazing!) And the cousins all crafted together. There’s my (chopped-off, sorry, bro) LITTLE brother with his cute wife and […]
