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...

Meet Maria Dobsonfly

You might remember last summer when I talked about the Dobsonfly that I found outside our back door. I have never seen anything like this thing before. I have lived in this house for over 7 years and I never heard of them either. I guess that they live near water and come out...
