Sitting in the ER with Owain

Sitting in the ER, again, wishing we weren’t here. The nurses are getting to know us. I recognize them, they recognize us. One of Owain’s ER nurses from last month told me she thinks about him often and has added him to her prayer list. So.Darn.Sweet. One of his nurses tonight was up working...

We watched The Wizard of Oz tonight for family Movie Night. So many times we go through a struggle of choosing what to watch. One of the kids mentioned The Wizard of Oz and it was a quick decision. From the very beginning of the movie the kids were tight lipped, with eyes glued...

Get Fit With Wii Fit

It is obvious that I have had a hard time keeping up with not only remembering that I said that I wouldn’t drop the ball on this project again this year, but actually finding the time to work out. Now that none of us have strep or croup and our Mended Little Hearts CHD...

Reasons Why I Homeschool: Our Founding Fathers

I can’t think of anything I would rather do than spend my days with my children. And the fact that I get to teach them is awesome! Every day I learn something new. I learn things that I forgot and I get to teach things to my kids that I loved learning about when...

Out of the Mouths of Babes

Last week I mentioned that my sweet baby girl is fond of the F-bomb. Would it be wrong to say that I giggle when she does it? It is not a word that she is going to hear around our house or anywhere we go. Last week I didn’t think that it had any...

Take It On Tuesday

It wasn’t until yesterday, Valentines Day that I realized that I still have my Christmas tree up. Kinda hard to believe that I forgot that it was still standing there in the corner of the dinning room, but it is. It is especially hard to believe because I made of point of declaring that...
