Children's Schedule

Monday’s are often hectic around here as we scurry back into our routine after the weekend. Sometimes we are all overtired or just dragging our feet simply because we don’t want it to be Monday. Who can relate? Yesterday was certainly one of those Mondays. I felt like a drill sergeant trying to get everyone […]

So, one of my lovely readers commented and encouraged me not to give up the 31 Days series…even if it takes me beyond October, I will continue writing until I reach 31 days. I will share a closer look at some of our day to days, including how we do devotions and our favorite recipes. […]

Stretching Me Into Hospitality

Allume 2014

That’s what God has been working in me. Hospitality. This weekend I went to the Allume Conference and our theme was hospitality. Hospitality doesn’t come natural to me…I don’t often think of unique and creative (or even common) ways to serve those coming into my home. Hospitality is a non-negotiable, but I don’t think it […]

Joyful Mothering New Season

I had good intentions, I really did. But real life took over and I’m sorry…but I’m not sorry. As much as I love writing and sharing our day to day with you, I enjoy living it even more. And honestly, I did get some ideas for posts that I look forward to writing! But writing […]

Family Workout Weekend

Day 11 and 12

So, I’d decided a couple weeks ago that my children are getting big enough to need more than the backyard to run around in for exercise—and during the winter months, they need some place to stretch their legs. Since I have the membership at the gym now and recognize, already, the benefits of working out […]

Day 9 and 10

October 8 Thankfully, Wednesday was better. I woke up feeling better and went downstairs to get my coffee. And because I’m writing this on Friday morning rather than Wednesday night, I honestly don’t remember that far back. So on to Thursday! October 9 Regular routine of wake up and have coffee. Felt quite well though the […]

Terrible Tuesday

??????????????????????????????????

October 7 To put it bluntly, I woke up exhausted Tuesday. In fact, I just didn’t feel like myself. You know what pregnancy exhaustion feels like? Yea, it was beyond that. (No, I’m not pregnant). I drank a cup of coffee. Then another. Still felt exhausted. I felt so heavy. I wondered how in the […]

Distract of the Dog

October 6 Monday started off so well. I woke up early and did my Bible reading. I felt so good and ready to begin the day. I can only imagine it was from working out the day before. I got lunch in the crockpot – Chicken Noodle Soup – and we began our devotions. Our […]

Day 6 Planet Fitness 2

October 5 So we woke up and went to church. We stopped at the library to drop off some books and pick up more for the upcoming homeschool week. We also had the opportunity to tour the fire station because they just happened to have an open house. It’s funny, too, because my husband and […]

October 4 It’s Saturday!! I slept in until 7:45am, came downstairs and made my coffee. The children were getting their breakfast and I grabbed my lap top and headed back upstairs to get some client work done while the coffee brewed. Saturday’s are computer work days for me. I work on VA projects, blogging projects, […]
