Yes! This…

Found this on  the “Finding Joy” blog:   when you feel like you don’t make a difference remember this. . . The way your child’s eyes light up when you pick them up from school. How you know just the right way to tuck sheets up and where to put the kisses goodnight. The infinite number of toilet paper rolls, ... Read More »

What Were Ya Thinkin’ Wednesday?-Beaver Badminton

What Were Ya Thinkin’ Wednesday?-Beaver Badminton

Yesterday I searched for “Educational Websites” so that my kids can expand their horizons. They have been on the site “Cool Math Games” which sounds educational except for the part that “math” is rarely included in any of the games. They play this game creatively called Red Ball in which a red ball rolls around jumping through obstacles to get ... Read More »

Snowflakes-Take 5

Snowflakes-Take 5

Sometimes I forget that our youngest kids haven’t done all the same crafts/activities etc. that I did with the older kids. I would have been the Pinterest Queen 10 years ago when our oldest was five, but I’ve kind of moved on from some of that. However, the girls came home chatting about snowflakes so we made paper snowflakes this ... Read More »

Throwback Thursday Parenting: Room Cleaning 101

Throwback Thursday Parenting: Room Cleaning 101

Back in the day, all parents had to do was yell “Clean up your room or I’m going to throw everything away!” then, when their sweet child refused to comply, march into their room with a big black Hefty bag and toss everything that was on the floor. Parents usually only had to do this exercise once before the kid ... Read More »

What Were Ya Thinkin’ Wednesdays: Nametag Stickers

What Were Ya Thinkin’ Wednesdays: Nametag Stickers

I love finding the kids’ nametag stickers from church in all kinds of unique places. I’m pretty good about checking their clothes before sending a nametaged dress through the wash, but do you ever find nametags stuck to things you wish they weren’t? And the best part is when you ask, “Did you wrap this around our patio door handle?” ... Read More »

How to Install an In-Ground Fence in Four Easy Steps

Tango (our dog) ate Australia. Not the whole country, but the nice (i.e. expensive)Lakeshore Learning Store laminated map that we had posted to the wall (it was a world map and now is missing a whole continent). “Big dogs need lots of exercise or they will resort to destructive behaviors.” Thanks Cesar. The daily walks a couple times a day ... Read More »

Faith-n-Family Fridays: Jen Hatmaker

Here is a link to one of my favorite bloggers/authors. She has five kids (some through adoption) and I love her “realness” and sense of humor. This is from her “About” page: HI. I’M JEN.    In the fall of 1992, a college junior named Brandon Hatmaker pretended he needed another fork in the Oklahoma Baptist University cafeteria so he would ... Read More »

What Were Ya Thinkin’ Wednesdays: Sporks

What Were Ya Thinkin’ Wednesdays: Sporks

Opened Callie’s lunch box last week, out poured 8-10 SPORKS! Cassie’s lunchbox…the same. “Um, girls, why do you have so many sporks from school?” “I-a-oh (the grunting version of I don’t know).” Then I tried to figure out what moral lesson was meant to be taught here…I couldn’t think of one. “You know some kids only have spoons at school ...

First Snowfall

First Snowfall

So the girls got up, ate breakfast and then headed outside to play in the snow. The first snowfall of every winter is always kind of special. This year we added the excitement of watching our “puppy” (60 lb Labradoodle) prance around in the snow. It was quite a site. Lots of giggles, lots of laughs! Watching your puppy enjoy ...
