October 31

The calendar says it is October 31.  You better believe we are celebrating!!!  We are celebrating this: Nine years ago at 12:20 pm on this day, God plopped the cutest little pumpkin in our lives.  Pumpkin, we adore you.  We treasure you.  We are thrilled to see what the Lord is doing in your sweet […]

They really did go to a pumpkin patch!

Pumpkin Patch (not really)

This is the post about the visit to the pumpkin patch on Friday (that I was not a part of since I was working).  I was smart enough to send the kids and the camera to the pumpkin patch with Nana.  I wasn’t smart enough to remember to bring the camera home from Nana’s house. […]

The kids won’t always be around but I’m sure this roll of fat will

I have become addicted to working out.  I enjoy it for several reasons – the potential of looking good being at the top of the list.  My dear husband has dug DEEP into our wee savings and so graciously agreed to help me get in shape.  When I don’t workout, I feel guilty. Not sure if […]

Tiny Talk Tuesday #8

I chose this over working out this afternoon……..                                         My toe was throbbing after teaching today so instead of running 4 miles, I decided to spend some one-on-one time with my 3 year old niece.  I adore this gal!  The fun thing is the feeling is mutual.  She talked a mile a minute.  We started […]

Killer week

It has been quite a week.  A good week but so much added to my already full plate.  All I have to say is if you are a mom and work five days a week, GOD BLESS YOU!  I attended a reading workshop (which is a whole other post) all day Friday on top of […]

Wacky Wednesday (on steroids)

I have had some wacky days in my teaching days.  I have even had designated Wacky Wednesdays.  But when you combine a planned wacky day with “just one of those crazy days” you get chaos.  Not that chaos is foreign to the first grade.  But believe me, this morning brought on craziness.   I think it […]

I am still here

Well, mentally, that is debatable. Not a lot going on in the brain tonight besides figuring out what in the world to tell 18 sets of parents during parent-teacher conferences this week.  I feel led to share a few thing of utmost importance with you about the last few days.  Please brace yourself. The Lad was puny […]

Fish what?

The husband and I actually lounged around at the supper table alone with newspaper in hand this evening.  I think the last time we did that in the evening was like 10 years ago.  Anyhoo.  I was glancing over the Metro section of our fine paper and saw the words “fish pedicure.”  Fish what?  I reread […]

Tiny Talk Tuesday #7

Tonight at supper, Little Miss started to go into great detail about her digestive system.  She was doing a pretty good job explaining the process but we were a bit confused when she kept repeating that “I have insects that help me get the food down.”  I am pretty sure she was referring to her […]
