I started making lists to use my time at home wisely. I have more projects than time these days, and accomplish only the minimum on days when I have to work both until 5am and again at 5pm. These past “weekends” (not actually weekends necessarily, but my days off at any rate) I finished a […]
Creed found a paper skeleton body with a photo of Charlotte for the face that she’d made for science. She overheard him talking to himself. “This is Creed. This is not Charlotte. Tell me why I’m wrong.” Even more than I want to know what on earth was going through his head, I want to […]
Creed James turned three on Saturday. Third birthdays have to be pretty much my favorite. He was so excited, starting to understand what it all means, and everything is so much fun. We spent the morning at a safety expo and got to climb around around fire trucks and ambulances and see some pretty fun […]
Spring cleaning, babies, and wrapping school.
We’re wrapping up school. We finish each subject on its own, as the books are complete. School days are getting shorter and there’s much joy as each new subject gets finished. We started late September/early October and are going further into spring than usual, and I’m looking forward to summer break with great anticipation. Pretty […]
Easter 2023 and updates
“Do this momma! Thanks. Now you have stripes!” Stripes, wrinkles… I’ll call them stripes any day. I’ve earned them! Easter was our first real holiday without Liberty. Eden was barely home. It was strange. I’m not sure I like this next phase we’re in. We did make our traditional Resurrection Rolls. Funny how there’s a […]
My dad drove through the night after work on Friday avoid a South Dakota storm and bring me fencing for my birds. My parents had kennels from their dogs that they aren’t using anymore and my living room ducks and chicks were in desperate need of a home out of doors. I’m pretty sure the […]
I’ve heard about chicken math. It’s the concept that they just multiply. Need one? Buy six. It’s never enough. But I’ve learned it applies to ducks. Blaine and I went to the feed store for chicks. We quickly learned the varieties we were familiar with were sold out, prices for chicks are crazy high, and […]
Eden graduated from academy training at the Department of Corrections today and became a corrections officer. My photos without random strangers who may or may not appreciate their photos showing up on my blog are limited, but I tried. Should have thought of that. She worked hard, gave the class speech with finesse, and finished […]
Pierce and I spent Tuesday night in St. Louis at the children’s hospital. They did a 24 hour EEG, while we played SkipBo and watched more tv than we normally watch in many months. We napped and wished the boring hours away. He had one seizure in very typical style, in his sleep, and I […]
Germs, friends, and sharing germs.
Pierce has a 24 hour video EEG in St Louis next week. I’m so hopeful that we get some answers. We went from I think the flu, then colds, a more complicated cold, to a full on stomach bug, all within four weeks. I’m weary of it. I got home from work at 5:30am one […]
