It’s the Little Things Thursday

Those of you following my blog may have noticed a theme this week…Ava.  On Monday, June 21st, Ava turned 4.  Seeing as this was a BIG milestone in her book, much of my week has been spent around this occasion and Ava turning 4.  So why should this post be any different?  It shouldn’t and(…)

It seems as though as I am always holding my breath, hoping the kids will behave while we are out.  You don’t actually think they ever sit still, stop fighting, keep their hands to themselves, lower their voices while inside etc.! Every now I then I am surprised to find that there is some good(…)

The weeks seem to be just flying by me!  Thursday has crept up on me again!  Today (Wed) we were at the mall shopping for dresses.  Chloe wanted a sundress for her gymnastics banquet later this month.  I have always been in love with sundresses, either the tube top kind or the little stringed ones,(…)

I could really use a “Little Thing” this week.  The one that stands out for me happened this past weekend when Chloe headed off to spend the night at a friend’s house.  It was a last minute invite on Friday while we were eating dinner.  After Chloe got packed she came downstairs and told my(…)

I remember the “Little Thing” post that I forgot from last week! Chloe does not like to write.  It is the one thing that I have left a little by the wayside, trusting that she will come around to it in her own time.  A few months ago I gave her a rhyming dictionary and(…)

As you all know I have not posted since my “It’s the Little Things” post last week.  I have been consumed with  sore teeth from getting braces as an adult, and the endless hours of landscaping that has to be done in our yard. I seem to remember having a great idea for my Little(…)

This week I was so touched to receive a poem, two actually, that were written by Chloe for me.  I had no idea she had done this for me!  She has been working on a book of poetry for months now, but it is mostly about the changing of the seasons.  She also wrote a(…)

Coming back from 2 1/2 weeks of vacation has been VERY hard.  We are weeks behind all our neighbors in yard and landscaping care, the house needs to be cleaned, the kids are having a hard time settling back in to a routine, there is a camper to prep and all the regular activities to(…)

For once my “Little Thing”  is going to include me.  So often our days, weeks, months, feel cluttered with the mundane, or not so, flow of life.  One of the things I have been noticing, enjoying, and making more of an effort to do is play.  Just play.  The response from the kids is all(…)

Over the years Chloe has always been disappointed that as the “big” sister, her siblings have not been all that responsive to her constant offers of help and support.  She could be so much help to me, in theory, but neither Jayden or Ava have really let her be of help to them. Recently, I(…)

This week it is Jayden I want to talk about.  Over the past year and a half, Chloe and Jayden have been taking a home school art class together.  Their teacher, Leslie, has been awesome!  Not(…)
