Winding Down On Summer
Baseball season is over. I'm of two minds about that fact. I'm somewhat nostalgic . Baseball has been great for our family this year. This was the first organized sport the boys have ever done. And it was an amazing experience. The players and the coach mad...

My Current Paradox
I am truly loving this summer. The pace has been pretty great. The temps have been on the cooler side of hot, which is fine by me. I've done lots of reading, and biking, and sitting outside-all of which are things I love to do. For quite a few years I have ...

A Little Bit of This and That...Life Lately
I feel like it has been forever since I wrote last. It almost gets to the point where I wonder if I will ever write again. Sigh. So many thoughts. Most of which just have not perked enough yet to be written. Some are too private to write. I had a cold last ...

Current Events: Learning to Love the Sinner but Hate the Sin
The BFF asked me the morning if I was going to blog about the legalization of gay marriage. It's such a big subject. Many, many people have already sounded forth on both sides of the issue. I see levels, nuances and tension. My many thoughts on the subject ...

Grilled Chicken With Tomato Olive Relish
So, Meres wants me to buy her a pet.  Let me tell you, she's barking up the wrong tree. A pet is not going to happen. Can you buy me a pet dog? No. Can you buy me a pet cat? No. Can you buy me a pet snake? No.  Just a baby one? No! Are you crazy?! Does she ...

It's that week... Cherry week! We have a sweet cherry tree in our backyard. Which has been an awesome thing. Some years we get a bumper crop. Some years are for the birds and the worms. This year is a bumper crop year. There are plenty for us, and plenty fo...

Speaking Brave
My goal this summer is to have several Iron Man weeks . (not days . I'm not completely insane.) 2.4 miles in swims. 112 miles on the bike. 26.2 miles in running.  Last week I stated this goal on FB. And guess what? I didn't meet it. Do I feel bad about stat...

Pasta with Spring Vegetables
It's July already! How crazy is that?! I am trying hard not to focus on the fact that our summer break is almost halfway done. It's about time to take a gander at some curriculum for next year, and start getting our syllabus nailed down. Our first triathlon...

My Changing Relationship Over the Years with Elisabeth Elliot
Most of my readers are probably aware that Elisabeth Elliot passed away last week. She was such an inspiration to me on my spiritual journey, and this was rather bittersweet news. Sweet, because she is with her Lord and Savior that she served so well. Sweet...

Adjusting Expectations
It's Sunday morning, and I am home from church. It is pretty quiet here. There is a light rain falling, and I can hear the birds chirping away. Meres is in bed sleeping. She woke up early this morning in a coughing fit. Not sure if it is a summer cold, or s...

aka Barefoot Hippie Girl
Introduction
I am a wife and a mother of 4. I home school. I run and swim. I write a blog to keep my sanity. I love the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart, mind, soul and strength. I want to encourage others to look to God, the source of my strength, to renew their strength. I want to encourage others to run the race of life, and not grow weary. To keep on walking, and not faint.
