Today on the blog I'm talking about the goals I set for last year and how they are influencing what I am working on for this year.


At the beginning of last year I wrote a post about my word for 2015. The word I chose was: (A word which I still don’t pronounce correctly.) Araneae is the scientific name for spiders and I chose it for a very specific reason…my goals for last year all revolved around the work of spiders…creating...Read More »

Today on the blog is an update on the post I wrote last year about 20 gifts that cost nothing to give....

Hey!
On Friday we were so excited to release our first two apps in the iTunes store!  

Talk2Kids        and     Talk2Teens

The apps were inspired by our 25 Ways to Ask Your Kids "So How Was School Today?" Without Asking Them "So, How Was School Today." post.

Each App will provide you with a different question everyday to ask your child or teen every weekday year round.

We are so excited I can't believe it is for real.  Elizabeth and I wrote all the questions and my brother and dad put the app together for us.  It was a fun team effort and I'm so happy to have it out.

There is a quote from a book written by Barry Lopez called “Crow and Weasel” that says, “Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive.” I love that quote. I have it hanging in our family work room. And I believe it…stories are like magic. They can teach lessons, change moods,...Read More »
