I have had so much to say but don’t have internet connected yet at the house and our phones don’t have signal at the house. It’s delightfully remote. But, there’s never time to write when we’re in town. So… here’s a post, written Sunday evening 10/9, to be posted when I get to town next. […]
Soon. Very soon.
We’ve been feverishly looking at houses. We’ve put so many miles on Eden’s poor little car it’s not even funny. We’ve driven across central Missouri so many times. On Monday, we made plans to see another property outside Jefferson City. At the last minute, the realtor we’d been somewhat displeased with anyway cancelled on us. […]
Charlotte Serenity: 12, and a little update.
Charlie turned 12 today. It seems crazy that my kids are all getting so big. #5 is nearly a teen! I didn’t treasure the years of the littles as much as I should have. Charlotte chose monkey bread for breakfast, and made it herself. We had zuppa toscana for supper, and angel food cake with […]
The kids have done a ton of fishing this month. They’ve not caught so many, but it’s been a lot of fun trying. (And a good bit of mud in the one spot!)
Lachlan Hyde: 1.
Lachlan turned one year old earlier this month. He remains one of the more serious of my children. He feels a strong sense of justice and routinely lets everyone know he’s not getting his fair shake. Lach does a belly worm crawl, pulls to standing, and walks if I hold his fingers. Everything goes into […]
A woman I knew many years ago used to refer to the events of life as the playing out of the story God wrote for each of us. It’s stuck with me, and struck me more than once when circumstances played out in what could only be understood as ordained by God. When it seemed […]
Ruby Alexandra: 14
Ruby turned 14 on Saturday. After busy Labor Day weekend made us struggle to get a campsite for that night, one opened up and, while we had to move sites (the fifth one in seven days – we’re getting good at breaking camp!), we got to stay in this campground at least. Boondocking on her […]
Several years ago, Stellan was in a class at co-op that used a stuffed tiger during classroom teaching. Stellan got to take a turn bringing the tiger home, and he talked about it for weeks. He desperately wanted a tiger of his own. I looked and looked for one for him for Christmas. Turns out, […]
We’re getting decent at this.
We’re officially two weeks in, and moved into our second state park. Missouri state parks allow you to camp for two weeks over every four in any given state park, so we have to switch at least every two weeks. This one is closer to the church we like and areas we’ve been looking at. […]
A masked intruder.
It’s 2:00 am and here I am, because sleep won’t be coming soon and I need to write this down. Preface: Blaine’s a heavy sleeper. He sleeps through almost everything. I can count on one hand the times he’s woken up to noises – and never before I had already woken up first. Until tonight. […]
