Lovin’ the Big Years! Posted on February 10th, 2012
I love these years. These “big” years.
When they were little they chattered . . . a lot. We have conversations now. Lots of them. So now we chatter together.
When they were little they painted and made messes. I cleaned the messes. Now they clean their own messes and still paint.
When they were little they wanted to push the buttons on the computer and camera. Now they have their own buttons and create masterpieces.
“Fat souls are better than clean floors.” A quote read by daughter #1 from Loving the Little Years by Rachel Jankovic.
“Children are individuals and they don’t forget that.” Another snippet from the above mentioned book.
When we read books we can’t help but share with each other what we are reading. It’s sweet, they like to read to me now.
The oldest girl says she can see the glimmer in my eyes as I sit here typing on her laptop. Ha. She says that I must be typing something poetic about her as she laughs out loud.
She says, “can I read one more thing? This is cute . . . .”
These girls are so funny, they make me laugh.
Yep, little girls grown up. I love these years.

I am not a mess . . . Posted on August 29th, 2010
. . . and this is unusual!
Every fall, every August, September and October of my life I have suffered with hayfever. And I am usually a mess.
This year, I am not a mess and it is not normal for me.
The only thing different this year is that I have gone “gluten-free” with my diet.
Yes, that is all that I have done. No medications, just no gluten.
Am I completely healed? No, I still sneeze occasionally and blow my nose. But for someone with severe hayfever symptoms the key word here is occasionally.
So we are doing a happy dance in our home and Kleenex brand can just keep a bigger supply of tissues this year.
A Brand New Blog Posted on July 16th, 2010
It is here.
My new blog.
With a beautiful new design.
All things lovely.
The past few months I have been a little distracted from blogging (look here), but I am ready to get back to blogging.
My sweetie pie of a daughter, Emily Rose, has designed my beautiful new blog and finished it just in time for an anniversary present. Rob and I are celebrating our 27th wedding anniversary today.
I hope you enjoy the new design and blog.
The Busy Homeschool Mother Posted on May 27th, 2010
I obviously haven’t been blogging much, so what have I been up to?
Over the past couple of months our family has taken two trips, realized that some members of our family need to be on a gluten-free diet, learning how to cook gluten-free, and over-seeing some new projects.
And….coming to the end of being an active homeschool mom. Yep. Emily Rose is finishing her last year of “official” home education and will be graduating. However, I will always be a homeschool mom. I am not giving up that title! It has been such a wonderful title, I think it should be on my grave stone someday as well. Something like, “The Lord blessed her by allowing her to be a homeschool mom.”
Deals of the Day! Posted on December 16th, 2009
Best price ever on the paper dolls that Breezy and Emily Rose created is happening over at Vision Forum today!! They are the featured "deal of the day".
We had a wonderful opportunity to attend the Sufficiency of Scriptures conference in Cincinnati, Ohio this past weekend and while we were there the girls were able to meet Doug and Beall Phillips. Mr. Phillips gave them an impromptu interview on his video camera, which was incredibly fun to watch happen. :) Later, Mrs. Phillips had them pose with her for a photo and you can see it here on Doug’s Blog.
So back to the sale, if you have been waiting for the perfect deal to get the paper dolls, today’s the day!
On another note, Life in a Shoe is giving away 3 sets of the full conference audio of the Sufficiency of Scripture conference! It was a wonderful conference and you will be greatly blessed to listen to it. So hurry over there and enter her giveaway, it ends tonight, too!
You can read more about the Sufficiency of Scriptures conference here and here at their blog, you will need to scroll through several pages to see all the photos and posts. They were doing live blogging and they have a lot of posts.
Today's Fool Count Posted on November 22nd, 2009
A wise man’s heart inclines him to the right,
but a fool’s heart to the left.
Today’s fool count: 60
That would be the 60 Senators who voted to continue down the path of a complete government takeover of our health care system.
