March 2016

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 […]

A smorgasbord of siblings

A smorgasbord of siblings

Jaeda is our nurturer and just wants to sit and read Liddi books and smile sweetly all day. But when she’s with Corban, watch out! They play fast and furious! Nephew Timmy (and his parents, what were their names, again?) visited this fall. Jaeda loved reading him books (see above). We babysat one evening for a total […]

The Zoo: Sun vs Rain

The Zoo: Sun vs Rain

Since we have friends out the FW direction, we love to meet up with them for lunch and/or nap afterward. This day we got lucky and got to roam the zoo WITH those friends! It was a perfectly beautiful end-of-summer day. (We’ve been loving this weather lately.) But holy moly, two moms and SIX kids. WHAT. Another […]

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 […]
