Today’s my birthday!

Today’s my birthday!

I’m thirty today. I’m not freaking out. I feel like I’m finally at the number that fits my life stage. No longer a girl playing house. Married (to the same guy!) eight years, three kids, own a house, resident of current town for ten years, visit family on vacations, get excited about kitchen appliances as gifts, prefer TV […]

Art, Hair, and Legos

Art, Hair, and Legos

HELP: I’m noticing that my phone camera pics are mostly blurry, and I’m not sure why. Anyone have any thoughts? iPhone 5c…… When I walked past this cabinet door at the Art Gala this year, I started crying. I can’t really tell you why. The Jeremy Camp song played through my head the whole night […]

Mommy Son Adventure 2015

Warsaw hosts a Mommy Son Adventure every year just before Mother’s Day. This was our second year attending, and we’re not stopping anytime soon! It’s so fun to be out with your oldest, just you and your boy, getting dirty, exploring, racing, making things together, licking black frosting ’til your tongue is dyed forever. Before we […]

Our very own Bitty Baby.

Liddi is exploring her facial control, playing with her tongue, and experimenting with her vocal cords. We do response cooing and plenty of staring at each other. In fact, more than I realized! The other day, I was reading a blog on my phone while she was nursing. When I felt her stop sucking, I […]

Hoopie Surprise Party

Hoopie Surprise Party

Last weekend, we sneaked up to Michigan and helped throw a surprise party for my littlest sib, the servant-hearted Hoopie. It was all Anna and Abby’s idea. When you’re the youngest of ten kids, you’re lucky to get a special dinner, let alone a whole day of surprises. Actually, I don’t know much about her birthdays, […]

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 […]
