The DOR of God’s People

The DOR of God’s People

I’ve mentioned Mary before. The Mary that I was paired with through Grace’s mentoring program. This is the third year that we’ve met, and our friendship has developed in God-ordained ways. Last year and this, she was part of an intraGrace mentoring program. And she watched as one of her mentees starting mentoring someone else. Pretty cool […]

The Great Homeschool Convention

The Great Homeschool Convention

Amy, Catey, Jessica, and I (and Liddi Bitty) attended The Great Homeschool Convention back at the beginning of April. We geeked out on Classical Conversations, studying Latin, sibling conflict, maintaining strong marriages, kids and money, best kid literature, and way, way, WAY more. There were approximately 15 sessions offered during each session, approximately 6 sessions […]

Jaeda is our nurturer.

Jaeda is our nurturer.

This little sweetie loves all living things. (Or stuffed things that represent living things.) Just this morning, I heard a loud “nom nom nom” at the dining room table. Her tiny plastic dinosaur had his face stuffed in her waffle. Every living being needs nourishment, I suppose. Thankfully, we have neighbors with live creatures to […]

my first #blessingway

my first #blessingway

Have you heard of a blessingway? It’s a Native American tradition, I believe, of showering a near-birth woman with love and blessings. And apparently treats. Or at least, our American version included that. Last Saturday, some of my dearest friends surprised me with my first blessingway. And a surprise it was! I had even gone […]

Bringing in 2015

Bringing in 2015

New Years’ celebrations bring the best combination of friends, games, laughter, and finger foods. We still have some salsa that we keep buying chips for. Oh man. I’m hungry. And fruit and homemade mint marshmallows covered in chocolate?! That’s it. We need to celebrate NYE at least monthly. Kids played for a bit and then […]

Preparing for Christmas

Preparing for Christmas

The day we got home from Thanksgiving celebrations, we picked up a tree and brought up the Christmas boxes. Sometimes I wonder why we do it all for just over a month of this Christmas season, but there’s something about the traditions and specialness of the season that just requires different decorations. As James was […]

Miscellaneous Goofiness

When Corban and Jaeda choose to love each other, they oooooze it on, making sure I hear every second of it. On this day, Corban insisted that Jaeda wear only the finest of clothes–his. So she sported a large I am a big brother shirt for this babysitting day. I think it went to her head, cuz she’s been […]

Playdough playdate.

Playdough playdate.

  All moms know that playdates aren’t for kids. They’re for us. But Jen and I wanted to have fun WITH our kids (and not just in spite of them;)). The kids and I had made some playdough for our homeschool babysitting day and whipped it out for this friend day. The colors have stayed separate […]

Goodbye, Summer.

Goodbye, Summer.

Goodbye, backyard picnics. Goodbye, long family hikes. Goodbye, warm river. Goodbye, mosquito bites. Goodbye, sidewalk chalk painting. Goodbye, cleaning out the van. Goodbye, scooter washing.  Goodbye, summer tan. (er, wait, those are just legs with bruises) And helloooooo, static electricity!

When the life group retreats.

When the life group retreats.

Well, I started this post exactly two weeks ago. Then I took a break to blink and just opened my eyes today! Actually, I started working on a book I officially wrote in college and forgot all about photos and blogs and funny stories. After reading it with adult eyes, I realized there wasn’t one.single.word […]
