We are in our 5th week of the new homeschool year, and overall, I feel pretty happy with our subjects, curricula, and how things are going. This year we’re tackling a lot more subjects than we have in the past, but they are all subjects that Mama enjoys. Unlike in the past when I tried to do […]

Last week I briefly and very generally shared our homeschool plans for the coming year. I want to elaborate on the specifics in this post. My intentions are simply to share what we are doing/reading/learning in an attempt to help and encourage anyone who might need some guidance or ideas 🙂 Our school year is broken […]

It has been awhile since I last posted, but I’m popping back on to share with you our homeschool plans and curriculum for the coming school year. We officially started back last week but at a nice leisurely pace 😉 Meet My Students This year I have 3 students. Kate is 7 1/2 and starting 3rd […]

What is more important than reading the Bible? Reading the Bible as a family! Having a family devotional time each day is the perfect way to engage in God’s Word with your loved ones. Our Bible time happens in the mornings right after breakfast and morning chores. We usually sing a few hymns, pray, read a […]

I love to cook. If you know my mom, then you wouldn’t be at all surprised. She is a masterful chef who my husband lovingly refers to as “the MacGyver of the Kitchen” because she can take 3 seemingly unrelated foods and turn them into a gastronomical masterpiece. I don’t have her creative knack for […]

Gluten-Free Meal Plan for March 13

This week is pretty low-key, which I need. The weekends lately have been a little more intense than I would like because of these beauties . . . There’s fencing that needs going up and fixing and other a sundry “cow things”. But I admit that I’m quite smitten with these mamas and their babies. […]

It’s been quite a while since I last posted our weekly meals on here, but meal planning is essential to my sanity. I hate waiting until the last minute to decide what to fix. Spontaneity is NOT my thing. But when I have a plan, I’m more relaxed, we eat healthier, and we save money. […]

Winter is my favorite season for reading. There’s just nothing like snuggling up with a hot mug of coffee and a page-turner. This winter has been colder than usual here in Tennessee, and while my kids watch their fair share of “Wild Kratts,” they’re also spending quite a bit of time with some good reads. Weekly […]

So, it’s been a while since I last posted. Some things have happened . . . We’ve moved! To a farm! While I’m usually sharing my list of personal goals for the year on January 1, we spent New Year’s Day getting settled into our new home instead, and I have felt the Lord urging me to […]

I am not the mom who loves making crafts. In fact, I have tubs full of paints, glitter glue, pipe cleaners, and stickers that my girls would love to rummage through, use, and destroy the house with, but they are hidden in out-of-reach spaces in our utility room. Every now and then I will conjure up the […]
