Stuff I’m Thinking About

Obedience in one area, and how it relates to my life as a whole. If I’m not following God’s path for me in one area, it can totally derail everything else. I love to read several books at a time, but if I get too many going I start to panic and then all I […]

Learning, Reading, and Looking Ahead #2

So I know I’ve learned stuff this week. I’m hoping I can remember it at 9:00 on a Saturday evening when I’m pretty much ready to go to bed an hour ago. This week I’ve learned– That the reason corrugated cardboard is so strong is the same reason you might fold a piece of pizza […]

Monday Meanderings, Week 17

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 […]

Learning, Reading, and Looking Ahead

One of our nightly routines around the dinner table is to share something we’ve learned that day. Mostly my kids stick to stuff they read or learned to do in school. A lot of times it’s– “Mom, um, what was that thing we did today?” “Subtraction with borrowing?” “Yeah, right. That!” And often it involves […]

Monday Meanderings, week 14

Monday Meanderings, Week 11

It’s almost 10:00 at night and I’ve had a tummyache all day and it seems completely ridiculous to even attempt a real blog post right now. Since my last Monday Meanderings post, my daughter turned seven, we finished our sixth year of homeschooling, and we took a huge road trip to Louisiana, Indiana, and then […]

Monday Meanderings, Week 10

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 […]

Monday Meanderings 3

Today I was walking home from Bible study, and as I walked up the hill by our church I noticed that the house behind the church had pink glowing windows. I spent a few minutes trying to figure out what would make the windows glow like that, and then I realized that it was coming […]
