Posted under Admit One, LOL, Love To Learn, The Unexpected - Oct 7th, 10 - 5 Comments

A few days ago, when I was entering H.E.B., I spied two guys desperately trying to separate their permanently nestled shopping carts. I felt like offering help (and needed a cart), so I asked the big dude if I could lend a hand and assured him by saying, “I  know this little trick.” So, I […]

Meeting Tim Hawkins

First of all, I really want to thank my mom and dad. Our family met two famous people this year, thanks to them.Thank you, Mom and Dad, for such a wonderful weekend being with family (We missed our Tennessee kin, though). It was great seeing my parents, sisters, brother, nieces, nephews, and cousins. On Saturday, […]

Duct Tape Heads Game

You probably know that I value duct tape, and I think that anyone who uses it, is basically using their head. However… This game involves duct tape, some willing heads, and snow hats (or nylon stockings). You basically divide into teams (ours were Team Grace and Team Faith) with about 4-6 people per team.

Another Toe Woe…Or How Benjamin Was “Framed”

Last Friday, as we were preparing to head out the door, I heard a thud in the upstairs hallway. I yelled, “Is everyone okay?” Benjamin uttered (as he hopped downstairs), “Uh, no, not exactly.

Oh No…The Big 40!

The summer provides me with more time to blog, as we only do school for half of a day. So, I thought I’d go back and blog about a few things that I missed in the busyness of the end of the school year. Back in March, my sweet husband turned the big 40! We […]

How To Make A Duct Tape Wallet And Consequently…A Happy Husband

I mentioned in my last post how I would be making duct tape wallets with my boys. Well, my husband (my biggest boy) requested that I make him one, too! He went on and on about how nice it was…especially about how thin it is. Personally, I would think a fat wallet would be preferred […]

Duct Tape To The Rescue

Paige wrote about our first experience with the breaking of a fluorescent light bulb last night in her post Light Saber vs. Light Bulb. I remembered hearing about evacuating because of the mercury, but the cleaning up was somewhat involved. The following page was helpful in our cleanup battle. Duct tape was used to pick […]

Big Surprise on the Prairie/Meeting Melissa Gilbert

“If I had a remembrance book, I would surely write about the day we came to Plum Creek”(opening quote by Laura as Little House on the Prairie series began in 1974) Thankfully, Laura Ingalls Wilder shared her life memories with the world through the “Little House” books. This blog has been sort of a “remembrance […]
