Do you ever wonder, when you stop for a moment and think, who’s teaching whom anyway?
There is a beautiful sunset just visible out the window in the front door, and Art is reading out loud to the kids. My feet feel cold while the rest of me feels overheated, and I really need a haircut. The house smells like whatever’s in the wax warmer mixed with the smell of sauteed […]
It’s been awhile since I blogged. Last week our family went camping for a few days, complete with many fun adventures including hiking down near-vertical hills, rain and drizzle and general dampishness, tangled kite strings, and a game of Scattergories in which one of the favorite answers was Engelbert and Bob Save Christmas. After the […]
Last week Pooka was sick most of the week, which cut back on the fun stuff we had planned to do, like a picnic with the grandparents. And Angry Ranger was away at camp getting sunburned and exhausted (but apparently not getting any girls’ numbers, for which I am grateful), so all I’m saying is […]
I know. It’s Tuesday. Tuesday night, actually. But this is my blog and if I want to do my Monday Meander on Tuesday night, I feel pretty much okay with that. Last week, in true Weird Homeschooler fashion, we started our new school year. We had a decent first week, with no unexpected drama and […]

After our days in Louisiana, we woke up early on Saturday morning and heading northeast to southern Indiana, where Art’s sister lives. We were on the road super early and drove a few hours before we stopped […]
Today’s vacation pictures are brought to you by Writer’s Block. 😉 We spent three days in the Shreveport area with my sister’s family. We had such a nice time– Laura has kids my children’s ages and they all got along well, although there was much “girl drama” among the little girls. This was the first […]
Happy Birthday, Pooka. Mama loves you forever.
We have reached Monday again, and it has been a glorious day in Tiny Town, Iowa. So thankful for spring! What a beautiful season. 🙂 Last night there were thunderstorms and rain, and this morning everything looked fresh-washed and glorious. Tomorrow is the first day of our last week of this school year, and we […]
They are three little girls like stairsteps at the table across from me– 2nd grade, 1st grade, kindergarten. One set of too-big grown-up teeth, one laughably naked upper gum, one even row of baby teeth. So many changes in just a couple years. We are learning a verse together, in dramatic fashion, because all of […]
