Starting a New Homeschool Year

A new day. A new week. Almost a new month. Soon to be a new season. Today, we started doing a little more schoolwork. Dietrich’s response was less than enthusiastic. However, once he started, he accomplished this work in very little time. I do not believe in giving him...

Up the Stairs, Out of our Home

When we moved into our apartment, Madilynn refused to come down the stairs by herself. After about a week, with some assistance and modeling by Big Brother Dietrich, she started to scoot down the stairs on her bottom. This past week, she began walking both up and down the...

The Music of My Heart

If my voice could hold out, I would sing all day every day. I have enjoyed the singing part of church service as far back as I can remember. I can close my eyes and see my child self – singing all the words to all the hymns loudly...

Most of Sunday’s box openings contained such gifts.My husband’s goal for the afternoon was to assemble our German Shrank (wardrobe). Apart, it...

It Ain’t over ‘Til Somebody Sings

Good Morning, Monday! First, a self-plug: I have a previous post from this blog featured on Mamalode today. Please stop by and read it (and like, comment, and share if you are so inclined. Note: I have no control over their ads or merchandising. If, however, you should see...
