Jaeda Turned 5!

Jaeda Turned 5!

Jaeda turned five last month! She picked an ice cream theme for her very first friend birthday party. I asked her if she’d like me to surprise her with a decorated house after she went to bed or if she’d like to help with the decorating. She wanted to help, so we spent the week […]

Goodbye, July.

Goodbye, July.

Well, for some reason all these photos got uploaded in reverse order. I’m just happy to be blogging at all (no, Cru, I can’t hear you crying; babies who are taking naps CAN’T.BE.CRYING). So journey with me backwards through July! Becca came to see Paul and Bekah’s tiny house reveal, so of course, we sneaked […]

Sam finally got to #hitchthehutchens

My baby brother (forever, sorry, bro!) got married last month! We’re up to 8 beautiful sisters in this family! James was a groomsman and my sister and I sang PLUS my other brother and sister-in-law were both in the wedding party and have two kids, so Grammie and Papa had some kid duties during the […]

Hello (and goodbye) June!

Hello (and goodbye) June!

We enjoyed some perfectly warm days last month. Wading and swimming in the lake are favorite pastimes. Crusoe was particularly tired this day. I feel much braver when a sister joins me! All that red hair. We stumbled upon a carnival kicking off free summer lunches. BOTH CORBAN AND JAEDA FINISHED THEIR READING LESSONS! James […]

May Flowers

May Flowers

May started with the most beautiful weather (weather that, really, we’ve had for most of the summer; I mean, gorgeous!) We printed the illustrations of our books and put them on display in the Performing Arts Center at the local high school. This was so much fun for me (and a lotta work for James). […]

Enjoying the Feast

Enjoying the Feast

I knew that art study was important for our homeschool, even for our hearts. We value the true, the good, and the beautiful and pursue it relentlessly. So I got the cards, the ones that showcase some of the most famous art in the world, painted or sculpted by some of the most famous artists […]

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 […]

Christmas Stockings 2016

Christmas Stockings 2016

It’s that time of year when I update the Christmas stockings. I love all these jewel tones together! Corban learned to read this year. Jaeda wore a dress 360 of the 365 days. Liddi is the jokester of the family. And Crusoe just gets his name, because let’s face it, all babies start out with […]

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 […]
