Our homeschool would most likely be looked at as being on the “school at home side.” We loosely follow the local public school in terms of scheduled holidays (although we typically take more days off than they do!), we also use curriculum…and planners. These things are closely followed by the fact that we grade schoolwork. […]
Welcome to my Teaching History Through Movies series. We are trying to watch a movie a week to enhance our history studies. It may be about a time period, event, or person. We started out a few weeks ago with the Wright Brothers. My Teaching History Through Movies landing page offers tips about finding and […]
So my friend Shana and I were doing our Wednesday mall walk and we stumbled upon something that I just knew would drive my dad nuts! Since we did not have the kids with us this time, we wandered into Old Navy. Our intention was to check out the $7 Jingle Jammies. Due to the […]
In honor of having just celebrated Jayden’s 7th birthday this past weekend (even though his birthday is closer to Christmas) I decided to dig back to his past, for a trip down memory lane. Seven parties have of gone by already. This year was his first “kid only” party. We will get to that one […]
This is Jayden, age 2 in the bathtub!
For this Flashback Friday I decided to do a “Wedding Post”. As Thanksgiving has passed, and Christmas is near, so many of us are counting our blessings. I think our marriages should be right up there on that list! So in honor of all of our marriages, her are the photos that show […]
There is this lovely, (not really) little, (not really) event that Joey has to deal with at work every year called “Computer Fest”. Like Joey’s job itself, I don’t know too many details about the whole thing, just that he is a “computer geek”! I do know that it comes every year at holiday time […]
One Sunday early in November as I lay on the couch, a little under the weather, Ava sat on the floor in front of me. She was cutting a piece of paper like she has so many times before. Cutting paper is a new past time for her, and I think she is pretty adept […]
Today is December First. This morning Chloe came to me and said “I woke up in the middle of the night. I saw something white out my window. When I looked out it was snowing!”. Needless to say, I looked out my window and a blanket of snow was covering our slice of the world! […]
Those of you with little ones will feel my pain. I dread the holiday season every year, knowing we will have to get a reasonable photo to send out to all those that never see us, so they think we are the perfect family! Seriously, who came up with this hair brained idea? The last […]
Since we all seem to like to take trips down memory lane, I am going to try “Flashback Friday” for a little while. With the 2 year anniversary of Papa Peter’s death only just over a week away, he has been on my mind a great deal. We just celebrated another Thanksgiving without him. He […]
