My Top 2 Home Schooling Tips!

Every year around this time I begin to assess our school year. What worked? What didn’t? What areas do I need to hit harder next school year or even begin to redo now? Usually by this time I have a fairly good grasp of the strengths and weaknesses of my kidlets. Sometimes the academics are running along smoothly and the real challenge is helping them to develop the character of a mature, responsible person. Academics are very important to me. […]

February Photography Project (Red/Pink)

  If you’ve been following my posts this year, you know that I’ve challenged myself to do a photography project each month based on my “color of the month”. I chose to make a red and pink collage this month since we celebrate Valentine’s Day in February. I used my Nikon D3100 and even had some instruction from my talented husband when we took a nature hike a couple of weeks ago. It was a lot of fun noticing all […]

We Need Each Other!

This has been one of those weeks that I just had nothing much to say. I’ve been really digging into keeping my kidlets on task with their schoolwork, taking care of some sick kids, keeping up with housework, and trying to maintain my sanity! But as I sat down tonight to have my quiet time, I heard God speaking so many thoughts and ideas to my mind. I felt like I could sit here and write all night. I’m not […]

Without our Father in heaven giving us the example of what love really looks like, we would fail miserably. Relationships are difficult enough even with […]

Take Heart

I am sitting here staring at the cursor as it blinks unfailingly on my screen, and I can’t seem to put my thoughts on the page. It’s not writer’s block, as being a woman I always have something to say. Rather it is the heartsick mood I find myself battling today. I am deeply saddened by some recent events in my family and my little world, and I can barely form a coherent thought or sentence. Added to this is […]

Here’s What’s New!

I’m so excited to be working on my photography project for February. The colors I have chosen for this month are red and pink. Can you guess why? 😉 As I said in my last post, I just love Valentine’s Day. So it seemed apropos to choose the colors that seem to be everywhere I look this month. I have already begun to take some photos around the house, but I want to get out and take some more in […]

Happy February!

  Happy February Everyone! The start of this month is exciting, especially when it means that we are inching ever closer to spring! Yay! Warm weather is on its way back to the frozen tundra of Michigan. I shouldn’t really complain since we have had a really warm winter this year, but the cold doesn’t bother me nearly as much as the dark, gloomy days that we endure from November to March. I am so glad that the sun shines […]
