Best Free Apps

I love my iPhone. It is a wonder how I functioned prior to its arrival in my life. I am a techy person and I love being connected to anything and everything I want to be… all in my little bitty phone. It’s awesome to have it through the school day too. I can grab…

Happy Easter!

I have no Menu Monday for you today because we are leaving today for our first visit to Nashville, Tennessee! We are excited to check out a new, famous city! We plan to try to see the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Theater, the Bluebird Cafe, and probably some outlet shopping too.  :) Any other…

Looking back… an Anniversary Montage

I just love those cheesy montages in romantic comedies of fun moments and images all set to moving music designed to pull your heart strings and get you emotionally involved in the plight of the two characters. In honor of our 13th anniversary last Monday, I wanted to do my own montage, minus the music,…

New House Deets

Today is our Wild Wade’s birthday! He is turning five, though I cannot believe it. We’re going easy this year and doing the easy but exhausting Monkey Joe’s par-tay tomorrow. I am so glad that we’ll have a yard for him to run free in this summer without going bonkers in our cozy house all…

Top seven things kids wish their parents would do with them

We are all so busy, aren’t we? We are running from place to place and obligation to obligation with barely a moment to breathe in between. Our lives sometimes get filled to the brim with things that honestly are not that important. They are things that are “immediate,” but not really crucial. In the process…

Spooky Nights Where We Get Lots of Candy… yes, please.

I never did Trick or Treating when I was growing up. Except for ONE time I was allowed to go with my friend at her grandparents’ mobile home retirement community. Yes, you read that right. I dressed up like a clown. My mom was always afraid there would be razor blades hiding in the candy….

A Star is Born…

One of the things we’ve enjoyed most about heading “back to school” is all the extras available for Haylee to participate in. She is a social girl, for sure, and we just didn’t get to do much of the fun social stuff while we were homeschooling. Now she gets Art Class, Computer Class, Library Time,…

Caging the Crazy Man

I left you hanging Monday… …right when we knew we were in the hospital for the evening with a night of non-sleeping on hard chairs awaiting us.  Have you been wondering how we all fared the rest of the night?  :) Wade rested on and off but would go from a dead sleep to screaming…

A Horrible No Good Very Bad Day… or Three

Those of you that know us, know that we had a very large and agonizing bump in our road last week.  We’ve been doing our best to paddle like crazy our way through it since then.  Thankfully we seem to be over the worst of it {knock on wood} and we are trying to figure…
