Happily married to my best friend for 24 years and raising 10 awesome children! Love my life, even though the laundry is never done, the house never really clean and I never get a full night's sleep. But I wouldn't have it anyother way!

Life is a Novel, with Chapters Always Ending and Starting
It seems that with children and a family, things are always changing.  No stage lasts for long.  Many times I have grieved this, however the other day I realized that one way to look at change, is the closing of a chapter and the starting of a new one.  Lif...

Sometimes to get more done, we just camp out in the car.... Whether you have lots of littles, lots of big kids, are pregnant or nursing, trying to mother and hold down a job, homeschooling or whatever stage of mothering you are in, I'm sure you feel this wa...

4 Down and 6 to Go
Well, last month we had yet another one of our children graduate from high school. It's always a surreal moment and one that doesn't get any easier no matter how many children you have.  They are each so unique and it really is a bittersweet time.   The Chr...

Difficult Times
We all go through hard times.  We all go through seasons.  I'm thankful for the change in seasons and how God keeps things interesting.  But why am I not thankful for hard times?  They draw me closer to the Lord.  They bring me to my knees.  They humble me ...

MakeTime for Your Man
My husband and I just went on our yearly Carribean vacation sans kids.   Yes, it's kind of pricey but we budget all year so we can go.   Yes, it's hard to leave the kids but it's actually good for them and great for us as a couple.   Yes, it takes planning,...

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff
Like a bad attitude in the grocery store and not so healthy items in the grocery cart. Many times I have younger moms tell me, "gee, you're so chill about everything."  Now those who know me better know this is not always the case.  I certainly have my mome...

No Formula for Parenting, But...
Now we all know that as much as we wish it were true, there is no "formula" to parenting.  It would be so nice to be guaranteed some kind of "perfect" kids if we just followed a laid out plan. But, it's really not the case, inputs don't always equal outputs...

Goodbye 2015. Hello 2016!!
My top Instagram posts basically sum up 2015. Happy New Year from all of us! It was so wonderful to have everyone home for the holidays.  Having all my babies home for more than a few days is something that becomes more and more rare as they all get older. ...

Sorry for the Brief Hiatus
So sorry for such a long break in my blog posts, but as you can see, I am OK! I don't think I have ever gone this long without posting and I just wanted to say thank you to those who noticed and sent me comments and emails.  It was such a very busy fall for...

Starting My 20th Year Homeschooling......Here's Some Tips
Our school picture for the 2015-2016 school year.  Notice we don't wear shoes. I guess now that I'm starting my 20th year homeschooling, I'm probably considered a veteran homeschool mom or even a pro. But really, I don't feel like either of those.  I'm stil...
