The Birth of Crusoe Conrad: NOT a Short Story

The Birth of Crusoe Conrad: NOT a Short Story

The last post ended with Saturday evening, September 10th, wondering if tonight was the night. (It wasn’t, but it was close.) The hard contractions fizzled out by evening, so we went to bed and hoped he would come soon. Sunday morning I had one hard contraction that convinced me to stay home from church. And […]

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 […]

Graduating Another Brother

Graduating Another Brother

I’m pretty sure kids will be graduating in my family for pretty much ever. Last month was another one–Matt! Florida sister Mary came for the big day. Look at her gorgeously long hair! There were lots of helpers on completing Matt’s scrapbook (birth til now!), but rumor has it that Courtney spent the weeks leading […]

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 […]

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 […]

Sooo we’re having a baby?

Sooo we’re having a baby?

You likely already know this by now, buuut we’ve got Baby Steele #4 growing away! We knew we’d like one more for our family, but we couldn’t decide when. So we didn’t. We just told the Lord of our desire and asked Him to lead the way. And lead He did! I’m so thankful to […]

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 […]
