What is it about digging around in the dirt, looking for bugs that just draws you in? I have never really been an outdoors type of person. I love nature, gardening, swinging, reading a good book in the sunshine, an ice-cold drink on a hot day, the way your breath looks when it's frigid...well at … Continue reading A little dirt never hurt
Week 2 of our homeschool year is underway! This week comes with lots of things to do on the calendar - dental checkups, vet visits, house designing, play dates, chiropractic adjustments, and more - but one of my greatest joys in homeschooling is the ability to learn on the go. Yesterday both of the big … Continue reading Sharing is Caring
We are gearing up for year 2 of homeschooling! With all the craziness keeping kid-friendly places closed plus the heat and humidity of the southeast, we decided to get a head start on school this year. It's a little different this time than it was last year - we have a new little one in … Continue reading Organizing, Decorating, & Planning, Oh My!
Well hey there! Long time, no chat! I'm excited to be back posting again, although I can't promise how long it will last or how consistent it will be. I do have 3 kids (and all the accompanying laundry). Anyway, it really does feel nice to be logged in and get to share a little … Continue reading Bubbling with Joy
There is something about food, isn't there? We all eat, so it is a perfect social experience. Everyone is going to eat sometime today, so why not do it together? We go out to eat with friends, we host dinner parties, celebrate moms-to-be with brunch baby showers, and the list goes on! There is nothing … Continue reading Food: the way to the heart or to the mind?
My kids are 2 and 4. They haven't yet had the chance to go to school, not that I plan to send them to public school anyway, but it hasn't even been something I've had to go through yet. Both kids have stayed with sitters, either my dad or a good family friend, while I … Continue reading The Blessing and the Curse of Motherhood
Today I had the pleasure of hosting a play date with a very good friend of mine and her two boys, 2 and 3 months. L and J are so cute! Punky and Bay have become infatuated with babies so they were happy to have J over to snuggle. And having her friend over was … Continue reading Mom Friends
No, I have not gone completely nuts! I am not feeding my kids dirt, intentionally anyway. I did however stumble upon an old memory and set out to reincarnate it. I have very fond memories of my Nanny (the name my cousins and I called our grandmother) bringing a certain dessert to all the church … Continue reading Dirt…It’s for dessert
What do you think of when you hear the word, "beach"? Vacation? Sand? Breeze? Waves? You want to know what I hear? Sand on everything. Crabs. Sharks. Wind burn. Sun burn. "Mom, I have to potty!!" Yes, I know. That's a pretty miserable way to think of the beach. It's supposed to be fun and … Continue reading Who Needs the Beach?
It's been a while, huh? But I'm still here and still working with the kiddos on playing, growing, and learning! We've had some family in town so it's been a bit hectic and our schedule is all screwy. But what's new?! In the past few days we have been to toddler story time at the … Continue reading Bust the indoor boredom blues
