Introducing My Newest Doll: Rainbow Baby (Part 1)

Introducing My Newest Doll: Rainbow Baby (Part 1)

Two years ago I gave up on a little dream.  I gave up on having a third child.  I was not desperate to have another baby.  I was content to be the mother of my two wonderful daughters, if that was what the Lord had planned for me.  But I had always thought I would…

In Sickness and in Health Means More Than You Think

In Sickness and in Health Means More Than You Think

I like sweets.  That comes as no surprise to those of you who know me.  Did you know my husband hates to floss?  Put those two things together and it gives us each plenty of nagging ammunition.  But, here is something important that I have learned about marriage:  I cannot complain about my weight or…

Why Do We Hate Sacrifice?

Why Do We Hate Sacrifice?

I am facing the birth of my third child any day now.  I have had the great privilege of being pregnant along with my best friend.  She is having her eighth child.  I am the oldest of eight children myself.  The outpouring of love, as evidenced by our friends at our joint Storybook Baby shower, is…

Storybook Baby Shower

I wanted to share with you the loveliest baby shower that my vintage doll planned for me.  In a crazy turn of events I found myself pregnant at the same time as my dearest friend in the world.  Both of us have amazing teen and tween daughters who put all of their talents together, and…

On a Babymoon

We just returned from a glorious weekend in the Florida Keys.  Just my husband and I.  It came on the heels of a big production of Beauty & the Beast that my children were involved in.  It was sandwiched between that and their dance recital, co-op final exams and reaching that magic full term window…

When not to read the ancient classics

When not to read the ancient classics

Another use for my Cricut machine

Another use for my Cricut machine

I have made diecuts for scrapbooking, fondant cut outs for cakes, cards for Valentines and stickers for gift wrapping with my handy Cricut cutting machine.  But I have recently discovered my new favorite use for that little wonder that can sometimes sit for too long and collect dust: graphic t-shirts!

Passport 2 Purity weekend with my doll

Talking about sex with your tween daughter?  Yikes!  No one’s favorite activity!  But, last year I did something very exciting and productive with my oldest daughter.  We used Family Life Today’s Passport2Purity–Weekend Retreat Kit to create a fun and purposeful mother daughter getaway for my 12 year old and I.  Valuing purity cannot be taught well when…

Practical Thoughts on the Classical Stages

Practical Thoughts on the Classical Stages

As we are preparing co-op plans for next year, we always have to take a step back and evaluate what we are doing and how it is working.  I asked our moms to pretend for a bit that we are starting from scratch with our current ages group and developmental stages, resources, talents and meeting…
