Kid-Planned Ice Cream Sundae Party

Kid Planned Ice Cream Sundae Party #SundaeFundae

I love the laid-back days of summer. Trips to the park and play dates with friends fill our days, but eventually they have to end. While I love homeschooling, I’m always sad to see the summer fun start to slow down. With back to school time right around the corner, I wanted to host a […]

Confessions of a First Time Baseball Mom

Confessions of a First Time Baseball Mom

So. Jonah started playing baseball this month. While I played softball when I was young, the role of a baseball mom is definitely a new one for me. In just the three short weeks that Jonah has played, my routine has been thrown topsy-turvy and I’m all discombobulated. I also have a few confessions… Fall […]

InstaFriday 7-26-13

Asher in a basket

It’s been a while since I’ve participated in InstaFriday. I’ve missed it. I have found it to be one of my favorite ways to recap what we’ve been up to. I hope you enjoy getting a glimpse of our everyday life as well… Asher has a thing for getting in baskets. He’s such a silly […]

Teach Them Diligently Convention: A Recap

Teach Diligently 1

Last weekend I strapped Asher in his carseat and drove with some friends to the Teach Them Diligently Convention. Only, it wasn’t that easy, because homeboy hates his carseat like nobody’s business. So a quick drive over the mountain in between nursing sessions took much, much longer than it should have, but that’s besides the […]

Mommy & Me: Special Time

Construction Paper Clown Noses

Since Asher came six months ago, Jonah has needed some extra doses of special time with Mommy and Daddy. While he truly loves Asher, the process of becoming brothers has been hard. Finding our groove as a family of four hasn’t been easy. It isn’t something I have written much about, mainly because it has […]

InstaFriday: Six Months

Highchair

Asher is 6 months old today. SIX whole months. Um, THAT is half a year. How is that even possible? I mean, on the one hand, it feels like he’s been around much longer than six months when I think about colic and sleepless nights that no amount of coffee can help. But then, on […]

A Reader is Born

We’ve been practicing three letter words (also known as word families) around our house for quite some time now. Honestly, Jonah just kinda started sounding them out one day…by himself. Ok, ok, so I’ve set him up for success with all of the fun things I do with him and I’ve been really strategic about […]

Yeah, that…

Asher on a very rought night

You know that feeling when you can’t get a baby to stop crying, no matter what you try… Yeah, that. Try feeling it for several months straight. It kinda stinks…in the worst way. It wreaks havoc on your mommy self-esteem. Rips it to shreds and then stomps on it repeatedly. Then, as if that wasn’t […]
