Home is where your heart is.

I know, that’s a corny phrase. But it’s true. I have learned that it doesn’t matter where I live as long as I have a roof over my head, food in my tummy and my family with me. In my previous post, I mentioned that we are living in a makeshift studio apartment in the … Continue reading

Home-for now

Well, it’s been awhile since I have blogged, but I’ve been busy packing and moving from Wisconsin to Indiana. I was born and raised in NW Indiana and I love it here. I will miss the beautiful green and gold rolling hills of Wisconsin and the barns. But, Indiana has always been home. We have … Continue reading

Jesus Bring the Rain!

As I was driving in a torrential downpour yesterday, I began to thank God for the rain, and I realized that had it not been for the drought we have experienced this year, I would not be thanking God for the rain. I would probably not like it at all. I might even complain because, … Continue reading

A Time to Mourn

Summer fun indoors!

I’m bored and cranky. We’re facing a few more days of 100+ degree heat indexes here, and I’m babysitting three … Continue reading

Heath bar dip (a.k.a. Big Booty Dip)

I recently made this dip for a party I attended. It was a hit! It’s so delicious and so easy. I love to bake but this past week, it was over 100 degrees every.single.day. My friend requested that I bake some cupcakes. That was a definite no. Not going to happen. I’m a fair weather … Continue reading

The Itsy Bitsy Spider

Recently, my hubby and I were taking out the garbage and he happened to notice an itsy, bitsy, spider working very hard to catch a boxelder bug. The bug was, as you can see, significantly larger than the little spider. That didn’t seem to phase the spider in the least. So, we took this teachable … Continue reading

Moving sale

Today I had a moving sale and will attempt to get out there again tomorrow. I absolutely must get rid of a ton of stuff. We are moving out of state and downsizing since we have only 1 of 4 children left at home. I really didn’t want to do it in this heat, it … Continue reading

Adventures in Homeschooling

My intentions were to make this blog and my son’s blog a part of our homeschooling. His should be about the things that he learns. Mine will be about some of the things we do, and lots of things that I do or think or feel. However, we are struggling to remember to blog because … Continue reading
