5 Favorite Indoor Boredom Busters
We just moved. The last time we moved we had one 18-month old child. This time we have two children and we homeschool! Even though our new home is only 20 miles away (our last move was over 1500 miles), it was significantly more work moving all our schoo...

DPP Day 21: Planning
Eight weeks. That's how long our break from school will be by the time we start back after New Year's. It's been such a wonderful break -- much needed!  But our time off is drawing to a close and in these final weeks a good deal of my time is being spent pl...

DPP Day 20: Gingerbread Man
My first Christmas as a married woman I tried my hand at gingerbread men and have continued to make them every Christmas since. I prefer them plain because they're just that good, but of course there's a lot of fun to be had in decorating gingerbread men (a...

DPP Days 14 & 15: Powdered Nose, Full House
I didn't have a chance to pick up my camera the whole day yesterday. I did snag this quick shot of daddy and daughter at the supper table with my phone. Daughter had been baking and was adorably smudged with flour -- or is it powdered sugar? She baked choco...

DPP Day 13: Lights on the Ceiling
The Christmas lights adorning our front porch make super neat patterns on the ceiling of the living room where they slip in between the closed blinds. I used a slow shutter speed to capture how cool it looks!

DPP Day 12: Early Morning Magic
In my youth I was "early to bed and early to rise," typically getting up before the sun. These days, not so much. Hubby and the kids are night owls, which means I'm usually up late right along with them. And when I stay up late, I sleep in late the next mor...

DPP Day 11: Icy Pond
It has been cold enough to freeze parts of the pond at the park. Today was warmer, though, and drizzley. Perfect for a brisk walk with the fam! Here the kids are amusing themselves with sliding rocks across the ice and of the edge into the unfrozen water. R...
