Let me be the first to say that I am NOT a fan of shopping with my kids in tow. My brain has trouble processing coupons and deals with other things going on. It’s not fun for me, but being a military wife sometimes necessitates I take my kids along – otherwise while Michael is [...]
I’m not sure when I came up with this idea (or even if it was really my idea in the first place), but it has been very helpful for us.
Sharpen both ends.
It’s really quite simple. Though a tad time consuming when it’s time to sharpen, they don’t need to be sharpened nearly as [...]
I’m sure at one point or another every homeschool parent has faced some struggles or hurdles. I am currently one of them.
I’m wondering… What (if anything) do you allow your children to do/work on during read aloud time?
I am dealing with two drastically different personalities – both are boys and the younger one is only [...]
Dear friends, I would love your prayers as we embark on another deployment.
We have the rest of this week with Michael – as he’ll be leaving for a 2 week pre-deployment training on Sunday – and then we’ll only have approximately one week with him when he returns before he leaves for 6 months.
If you [...]
Three years ago, I gave birth for the third time. But that third time would also end up being my last I never planned on the 3rd being the final, so knowing that I, most likely, will never do the baby years again has really shown me how to cherish them. I’m sad [...]
What do you keep in your vehicle – I mean, besides carseats and snacks??
Keeping a well stocked vehicle can save you a lot of trouble in a variety of situations.
Ever had a child throw up on themselves or wet their pants while you were out in public? What about getting stuck in a torrential rain [...]
This 3rd child, first daughter, she’s so different than those boys! She’s a girl, really, really a girl. I’ve shown you how she tries to be like mommy in the kitchen and has a little mama’s heart, but she’s so much more than just my little shadow.
I know that God has big plans for her [...]
It has been gloriously warm for the last few days. All of the snow we had, that was trapped beneath a solid layer of ice, is gone, gone, gone!
I’m not sure about you, but I’m really not a big fan of winter. I know it’s necessary and God created winter for a reason, but sometimes [...]
I’m not a new mom, but I am a fairly new girl-mom! Rachael wasn’t the first child I’ve potty trained, but the two ahead of her were boys and that’s all the experience I had.
The boys were more difficult to train and Eli definitely does things on his own time. I learned with him that [...]
She’s my little shadow. Seriously. I cannot do anything without her following along. She’s not really a hindrance like some small children can be. She doesn’t get into things like the boys always did (and sometimes still do). I can foresee her being an absolute asset in the kitchen in just a few short years [...]
