We’re headed back to Springfield this week for Liberty’s graduation from the tech school there. A friend is having a party for both Liberty and Eden, celebrating each of their graduations. We’ll drive overnight tomorrow night and stay with friends through Sunday. The kids are all over the moon. How Lach does traveling will be […]
I’m a little slow on the uptake, but we huddled in the cold on Easter morning before we left for church to get a new family photo.
Creed is learning to use the toilet. He’s the biggest of mine size-wise to learn this skill. He can maneuver things pretty well compared to his siblings when they were this age. He knows what to do. He knows how to do it. But we’re by no means hitting proficient levels. I was determined not […]

So… here we are. Over nine months since Blaine got his CDL, we sold the house, Blaine quit his job in Missouri, and we packed up and moved north to my parents’ in South Dakota with the plan to stay with them short term while we got things lined up to buy an acreage in […]
Ruby went all out in creating pies for us to celebrate 3.14. Pizza pies and cream pie and a dark chocolate and coconut cream pie made for yummy celebratory foods. Creed really loved the pies. I’ve caught him trying to get more over and over. Happy Pi Day!
Elliot Adelaide turned eight years old March 1. So crazy to think that eight years has passed since she came into the world, scaring us all. She got stuck. Her heartbeat was skipping. She didn’t breathe for four minutes. Here we are. She’s reading everything she can get her hands on. Thriving. Excelling at math. […]
And… I missed February entirely. Can I blame the short month? Yeah. I know. Sad. Still. Eden turned 17 on February 1. I can’t believe the little girl who embarrassed me everywhere we went as a toddler is nearly full grown. She peed in the car cart at the grocery store, leaving a trail as […]
Creed is officially pacifier free and no longer mad about it. Naps are harder, but he’s handling it well enough. He even found one of Lachlan’s that was identical to his own but smaller, sucked on it like he was so funny, then handed it over happily. Whew. I briefly thought he’d head back into […]
Creed has a serious attachment to his pacifiers. He wants them 24/7, but handles life without them when he’s up and about. Nap time and bedtime though – he did not want to give them up. He’s the oldest I’ve had still using one, but I’ve been dragging my feet on taking it away because […]
