Irma Took Our Power…

And our entire front porch!!! Ok, so I am so sorry that I haven't been able to respond to anyone or post anything for about a week but we had a lovely vist from a dear friend named Irma. I'm afraid she has kind of occupied our time and resources so we will get back... Continue Reading →

The Garden Is Started

Finally! We "broke ground" on our vegetable garden! My wonderful husband helped with some of the heavy lifting and digging and we got about halfway done with the garden border. I am trying to give it a natural raised bed look so we pulled logs and branches out from the woods around our house and... Continue Reading →

Homeschool Beginnings

Through our local homeschooling co-op, I signed the girls up for a music and drama class not really knowing what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm of the teachers! Izzy was scared of the audition and Bianca was originally not even signed up because I was worried about the length of the... Continue Reading →

So, right before dinner, as we sat with some papers on the table I hadn't cleared from the girls doing crafts and a stuffed animal hanging out on its side, Bianca decided to add to our normal grace. We had just had a conversation about how Jesus died on the cross for us and she... Continue Reading →
