Ashley Kate

I know I have mentioned this sweet little girl before but have a heavy heart for her and her family today.  Please pray for Ashley Kate.  I follow her blog daily and was holding out hope that her parents could take their two year old home for their first holiday away from a hospital.  But […]

What I did today

Just in case you did not know . . . I AM OFF FROM SCHOOL FOR A WHOLE WEEK!  I am giddy about that.  So what did I do on my first official day off? 1.  The Lad came in at 5:32am ecstatic that the newspaper had been delivered.  He somehow makes himself wake up […]

I really did completely decorate for Christmas this weekend

So I decided my blog needed to catch the holiday spirit too. Some say I am crazy for putting Christmas before Thanksgiving but I learned a little hint a couple of years ago . . . I always feel much more relaxed and THANKFUL at Thanksgiving if I have completed the BIG task of decorating.  […]

8 things you do not know about me

As a result from clicking on Jennifer’s name on Boomama’s comment list, I was tagged.  Wouldn’t you know?  The first time to visit a blog and I get tagged.  So, dear Jennifer, I have no clue who you are but because I am obedient and play by the rules (not really), I will participate in […]

FUN classical music for children

Thanks to my friend, Sarah, I have just ordered way too many CDs for me my children and students.  My students especially enjoy classical music.  I am so proud of how they can distinguish between a few major composers.  Now I am ready to expand their interest and knowledge.  I want them to learn the […]

It is done and that is all I have to say about that!

Well, the course was finished, the final test completed, and the form sent off.  I could not resist taking a picture of the husband mailing off the final form.  The children were baffled by Mom pulling out the camera in front of Kroger and taking a photo of Daddy mailing off some letter.  All I had to say is, “You […]

Just in case you have not figured out that we are raising a free spirit…

…let me give you one more piece of evidence!              

And what exactly is he pledging to?

I hope my husband is pledging to be the one to participate in all that boyish, wild stuff.  Because after tonight seeing all those boys running around that school cafeteria, I want nothing to do with any more chaos.  The teacher in me was about to POP when the scouts were so obnoxious.  I restrained […]

So maybe she should be adopted…

. . . because her very own mother missed her big Thanksgiving Feast.  Of course her beloved grandparents made an appearance.  But not her momma.   I had guilt. My sweet friend, Suzanne, tried to convince me that it wasn’t that fancy and I really did not miss much.  I do believe she lies.  With […]

I have veered away from fiction – this is entirely temporary!

I am actually reading something a little deeper than my normal fiction.  I have been on a Jane Austen kick this year.  Along with Karen Kingsbury and Beverly Lewis.  The latter two are great Christian fiction but not deep.  I read for enjoyment.  I do, however, long to start reading to better myself and grow spiritually.  […]
