It’s really hard to type anything substantial with one hand. It’s really hard to hold and or nurse a baby without at least one hand. See where I’m going with this? But, photos I can do. I love this one of Eden. It’s hard to get a genuine smile captured these days from her – […]
Where’s Waldo? Blaine? Blaine got home from work the other day and headed off to who knows what project he’d chosen for the evening. With a long list, you never quite know. The next thing I heard was the chainsaw. I went outside to see this. Blaine’s in there somewhere, perched in the tree, […]
TOS Review: Mango Languages
For the past six weeks or so, three of my older children and I have been using Mango Languages and their Homeschool Curriculum for teaching languages as part of the Old Schoolhouse Review Crew. For ages 6 to adult, I chose to do this review with Sterling, 6, Eden, 9, and Liberty, 10. Mango offers […]
I’m having flashbacks…
Pierce was having fun with my and Blaine’s boots the other day. It reminded me of photos of yesteryear, with a similarly aged Eden… Funny how things change, and yet, stay the same. Looking for these photos of Eden was a ton of fun… with six kids crowded around to see photos of the former […]
I was contemplating two of my children this morning and made some observations to my husband. We have buddies around here. Each of my children has a buddy – a littler person who they are willing and able to get things for, help dress, take potty, etc., when I am unable. Eden’s buddy is Charlotte. […]
I never imagined this.
These days are hard. School seems to drag on forever, co-op has become a stress like no other and keeps me awake at night, it’s all I can do to keep up with the house somewhat and laundry, Pierce is tearing the house apart as fast as I can put it back together and refusing […]
Pierce threw two new rolls of toilet paper into the toilet. Someone left the toothpaste, uncapped, on the bathroom rug. Charlotte stepped on it. The rug’s in the washing machine. Fourth load for today. I took the kids grocery shopping at two stores and to the library. A random man asked me when I was […]
Liberty’s making pancakes – from a mix. She’s over an hour in and I just heard the first oil spray hit the pan. I can teach them how to cook… but how on earth do you teach them speed?! Sterling asked me how big a yard was. My reply was, “3 feet. 36 inches. A […]
Lazy summer days…
Ruby gets full enjoyment out of the swing. You know, as opposed to the lesser enjoyment she gets out of other things in life. No, not so much. Life is full speed ahead and quite the fun game for Ruby. (And she wears this dress about three days a week. As in, every time it’s […]
Oh, for cute.
Four new circle skirts made from this pattern slightly edited on the waistband for ease of knowing where the back is (and covering my sewing machine’s hatred for sewing two piece of elastic together) and four new necklaces, made from matching fabric from this pattern, made four very happy girls. Four very cute very happy […]
