Five Months!

By Monday, January 13, 2014 0 No tags Permalink

This boy.  He is the light of my life.  Seriously.  That smile, those eyes, the chubby little fingers that grab on to everything the comes near.  His teeny tiny nose, his soft fuzzy hair.  I love him more than I could ever explain.  And he sure loves me too.  He needs me constantly, always want ...

Mathew… 12 weeks already

By Tuesday, November 5, 2013 0 No tags Permalink

Today is twelve weeks since this sweet boy came into our lives.  His smile makes me smile a thousand times a day.  Last night, I got to smile at him at midnight, again around one, again at two, then three, four, and five AM.  I got up at 6am and gave him to his daddy.  ...

Polar opposites

My boys could not be more different right now.  One wants to be inside, the other out.  One wants to do his workbooks, the other cannot sit still.  One wants to get messy, the other can't stand a drop of water on his shirt.  I love that they are totally themselves. Nathan loves to be outside ...

Gratitude… a start

My grandma inspired me recently as she was reading to me from numerous pages of her gratitude journals. She is like me, with countless unfinished notebooks and journals all over her house from different stages of her life.  I loved listening to her entries, and over the last few weeks since hearing them I have ...

Waiting

By Friday, August 2, 2013 0 No tags Permalink

Apparently today will not be Mathew's birthday. He is waiting. He is happy and safe and wiggly in my belly at this very moment. Two trips to the hospital, hours on the monitors, sleepless nights, and he is still waiting. Ok kiddo. It's ok with me. Message received loud and clear. I won't push ...

Mathew Belly :)

This pregnancy has flown by faster than I can believe.  I'm 34 weeks right now, which means this kiddo could be coming anywhere between 3-6 weeks from now.  I wanted to document every bit of this experience as I know this guy will be our last baby, but life, morning sickness, gestational diabetes, kids, life, ...

Nature School

By Monday, July 8, 2013 0 No tags Permalink

I went to a Charlotte Mason seminar in Santa Barbara awhile ago, looking for some ideas to add to our homeschool year ahead.  I came home determined to find a place for our own "Nature School".  A place for the kids to visit year round - for them to see the changes of the seasons, ...

Getaway for a Day

Our family has a thing for this place.  It's our getaway for a day.  Ryan and I have gone to Avila together since we were dating.  We found this farm stand when it was just a farm stand selling pumpkins and roasted corn in the fall.  Now it's a year round farm with animals and ...

office space

Ryan has a new office.  He's escaping the tiny room in our garage just in time for the heat of summer.  We miss him, but the boys are having fun playing with his high tech toys in the new place. :)  And it can't hurt that there is a frozen yogurt place right downstairs...  We ...
