Here’s a little catch up chat. **I’ve been knitting a shawl. My sister gave me yummy silk yarn for Christmas and I just now found a pattern to try. It’s not as fancy as I’d like, but it will do. My sister spoils me don’t you think? **I started Flylady again. This past week, everywhere […]

Monday, July 20th, 2009

Lee called me the other night. He said, “Guess what my roommate just told me?” I had no idea of course. Lee said, “He said I toss and turn all night and talk about you. He said it sounds like I’m looking for you.” My first response was, “awwww” but then it just made me […]

Year 3

It’s hard for me to believe that we are already starting Ambleside Year 3! I guess it’s hard for me to believe how quickly my son is growing up. I am sold on Charlotte Masons’ philosophy of teaching. I cannot argue with the results and I am so blessed that I found Ambleside. The books […]

My Garden

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

Although, I have loved our cooler summer, my garden is not amused. Everything seems to be growing so slowly! Here’s a little peek. James’ onion patch. He doesn’t think they need to be thinned!

A little humor courtesy of my niece

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

When my sister and her little girl were here, we had a lot of fun. My little niece kept us in stitches. She wasn’t quite 4 when they were here and she’s a hoot. The first thing that she said that made us laugh was about Grandpa. My dad is a big guy. My niece […]
