    One on One

    In our house we have been blessed with two little kiddo’s. They are just about 2 years apart almost to the day. Needless to say life was pretty busy in those first days of being a mom of two. Through our moving and house hunting. It made for a hectic time. But at the same time the memories we made that first summer we were a family of four are ones I would not trade for anything. Fast forward a few years and now my little ones are age 4 and 6. Something that I have always read about is, making sure to take time to have one on one…

    Books for Tots – Faith Based

    Easter is just around the corner and I try to add a book to my kids Easter baskets every year. So I thought I would share with you some of my family’s favorites! Because it is Easter I am only including faith based books in this post. (Also the post would be waaaay to long for all of them that we read) Also as a side note, I look for cute picture books. Several years ago I read an article about how children will spend hours looking at pictures and noticing all the details. So I try to keep that in mind when I am picking out a children’s book.…

    Spontaneously Planned

    Kids have an adept ability to be creative, competitive, thoughtful, rude, kind, and mean, all in the same day! I will share something that happened this week with the kids at home. We were enjoying a couple of nights ago at home as a family. Nothing fancy or costly. We played a game or two, and the kids got to release a bunch of energy “playing” with dad. The “dad can we please play with you” request, which I seem to hear EVERY day, is code for “lets climb and wrestle all over you until you’re too tired and then keep doing it some more”! Honestly, it’s these evenings that…

    My Favorite Authors!

    Today I want to share with you one of my favorite hobbies: reading! I am always on the hunt for a good book. I have read many genres over the years. But right now I want to talk about my favorite fictional lady authors. And a great benefit: All of these books are safe for your teenager to read! These are enjoyable stories free of any risqué writing in their plots. The first that comes to my mind is Robin Jones Gunn. I LOVE her books! They are set in modern day times. I think that one of the first book of hers that I read was part of the…

    A Week in the Country

    This past week I have been house sitting for my parents. It has been a lot of fun to be out in the country. This time of year is so so beautiful!! It has taken this girl a few days to adjust but I am finally getting into the swing of things. With house sitting I am also “animal sitting”. That one was interesting! I grew up with a few chickens and cows but I never really had to care for them as it was my brothers job to do that. Occasionally, I would bottle feed the baby cows, or let the bigger cows out onto their tether, and gather…
