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 […]

10 Books About Worms

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been studying about worms in science. Jonah has enjoyed learning how worms help the soil by digging tunnels and breaking things down by eating them. And because he’s a typical boy, he’s been fascinated that dirt is full of worm “waste.” We’ve found some really cute books at our […]

Our Homeschool Curriculum 2013-2014

I find it hard to believe that we are entering our second year of homeschool. How is it possible that I have a First Grader?!?! We loved My Father’s World for Kindergarten, so we have chosen to stick with them again for First Grade. We were so excited on “Box Day“, the day we received […]

InstaFriday 7-26-13

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 […]

Mommy & Me: Special Time

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 […]

Jonah says…

“College cheese is on sale, Mom.” (AKA: Cottage Cheese) “Look, Mom, it’s 11:25!” (Lucky guess. He adds “20” in front of all the numbers on a clock.) “I’m on safari!” Gosh, I love this silly boy!

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 […]

The Cutest Peter Pan You Ever Did See…

Halloween. It brings up the “Super-Mommy” Complex in me. You know, the one where I refuse to just buy a costume because they are “poorly made and fall apart.”  So instead, I drag two children to Walmart in the rain after dinner to get the ONE missing supply in order to stay up late and […]

Blame it on Frosty

I investigated further into the hilarious Leaf Daddy/Pipe thing from Jonah’s Leaf Family Portrait. Frosty the Snowman, the lovable, magical guy we all know and love is to blame. Specifically, his corn-cob pipe. And thanks to Leaf Mommy, I got the video to load for you…she’s one smart cookie 🙂 Enjoy! (Having trouble viewing the […]
