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 […]

Jonah’s Favorite Part of Vacation

Hands down. Without a doubt. The BEST part of vacation for Jonah…Swimming. While he’s always loved the pool, this seems to be the year for confidence and independence in the water. He finally has the core muscle strength to hold himself up with the help of his Puddle Jumper Basic Life Jacket. Last year he […]

Bowling with Jonah

While we were visiting family in Florida last week, we enjoyed a new “First” with Jonah…Bowling! I’m not really sure why we’ve never thought to take him before, but I think he enjoyed it. He was so funny to watch. I’m super bummed that the majority of my pictures turned out blurry. I was trying […]

10 Random Thoughts on Vacation

What’s the point of cleaning before you leave? As soon as you return and the suitcase explodes, you’re back at square one. It is always 10 degrees hotter inside Disney World. The minute we stepped out of the park the temperature dropped atleast 10 degrees. I think I sweat more than the average woman. Seriously. It’s gross. […]

A Day Trip to Disney World

My dad lives a short 90 minute drive away from Disney World. We obviously had to take advantage of that on our trip! Jonah loved the parade! The chipmunks gave him high-fives and he thought he was hot stuff. He got to see some of his favorite characters, including Woody from Toy Story. We rode […]

Children’s Museum of Sebring

Even though my dad lives in a small Florida town with the majority of the population being senior citizens, there is a small, but charming children’s museum. What a great find for us! I loved that it was a community effort. Each “exhibit” was sponsored by businesses in the community. For instance, the building exhibit […]

Easter 2010

    We celebrated Easter with family in Florida this year. Although we were sad to be away from our home church on a special day, we enjoyed celebrating our RISEN Savior with family. Jonah joined us in the service and was VERY well behaved. I was a little nervous since he’s normally in the […]
