This place has “gone to the birds”

Literally. You may remember our mother bird and her 5 little eggs on our front porch wreath… ...more

Time to get down to some real “Whole Living”

Most who know me know I am kindof deep into the “real food” scene these days… I despise boxed food and the crap they are trying to pass off as “healthy” at the grocery store. If there is one thing I have learned this year it has to be the power of natural healing via what we consume. Since ditching the corn, soy and gluten (I am still a “cheater” from time to time) I have not only managed to ...more

Year 5 coming to a close…

Is it almost Summer already?!?! Sigh… Yes…how do I know the school year is coming to an end? My inbox gets full of questions about homeschooling. I don’t mind it one bit.  Every year I keep saying I am going to blog more often about our homeschooling lives. In reality though homeschooling for us is just part of our everyday “normal”.  It is not something we wear on our sleaves it’s just how we chose to educate our children. It ...more

The “big one”…

Some see 40 as “over the hill”… So how am I taking the big birthday number today? Fantastically!  The way I see it I made it to the top of this crazy mountain and have this fantastic view!  What’s not to love? ...more

A stumble down memory lane….

The night started off simple enough… Work on adding wedding images to the website then onto the biggest task of the day… I had a client (one of my favorites) who realized that she just needed those priceless images of her baby from…oh 6-8 years ago… See we parents don’t really realize how important the pictures of your babes are when they are little. We’re tired…flustered…always wondering how in the world God decided we can pull of this parenting thing ...more

She must really trust us…

Because she KEEPS laying more eggs!!! She is up to 5 now!  We are now using the garage entrance ALOT and with every peep we hear on the other side of the door we think… “maybe they have hatched!” and quickly press our ear to the other side of the door. These chicks are turning out to be more exciting than Christmas ...more

Green is my favorite color…

Maybe…cause I kindof like blue, and orange and and and and… Ok well today, as I kept rubbing my eyes from the pollen, I realized the trees are back to their full beauty and I swear it took a day to happen. I took little man to the park today… He is so darn tiny compared to those big old trees ....more

One of my favorite parts of homeschooling…

Nature lessons. They are taught by…nature.  Not me. I suppose I can “guide”…explain…but in the end Mother Nature is going to teach them way more than I can about the natural world around them. If you follow the Fan page than you probably saw this little tidbit from today: ...more

Every baby should have a “lovey”…

This statement coming from a mom of three children that were ALL attached to a blanket, pacy and sippy cup at some point in their little lives. Why did I get them attached to these things? Because I was a teacher before having them and I knew how well the children in my care did that had a “lovey” versus those who did not ....more

Surprise sunsets…

There was  a birthday dinner for Grandpa tonight… Happy Birthday Grandpa! I bet from this picture you think we had a picnic? ...more
