Timothy Day

Today is “Timothy Day” at our house. We created this word cloud in his honor. My dear mom wrote this song that you are hearing (words and music) especially for Timothy. We (Paige, Michelle, Grace, Faith and I) enjoyed singing it together for the sixth anniversary of his home-going. He is still missed!   Full […]

Graduation…Hats off to Paige!

    Paige graduated from high school last weekend. Praise the LORD for allowing us to mark her special day. She graduated with three other seniors from the youth choir they were all a part of, and we had the graduation at the church where our choir practiced and performed. They wore cap and gowns […]

Thanksgiving Crafts/Games: “I Got Your Back!”

Recently, I ordered some fun Thanksgiving crafts from Oriental Trading Company. I love Thanksgiving, and we try to do a few crafts each November. I save one from each year and we decorate the house for Thanksgiving with the kids artwork (past and present). So, I bought some foam “Pilgrim people” that we put together […]

Birthday surprise!

A beloved tradition around our house is to wake up the birthday child to the sound of the birthday song. My parents started this tradition with us when I was growing up, and I always looked forward to it. I mean…how tragic would it be for a child to wake up and not realize that […]

I’m Thankful for the Gift of Reading!

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 […]

We Did It!

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”        Isaiah 40:8 Earlier…back on January 5, we attempted to read through the Bible, as a family, for 90 days. Well, it took us 100 days, but by God’s grace…we did it, and it was such a blessing to our […]

Our List of Games That We Love to Play:

One of my favorite memories of growing up in my home was playing games together. We just returned from a lovely Thanksgiving with my parents and brother, and we still enjoy playing games together! I have found most of my games at thrift stores, book swaps, etc. One year for Christmas, our family decided to […]
