The 21-Day Sugar Detox – Book Review

As many of you know I have been on a health journey for the last while (since April 2012) and have been working at getting myself healthier in the kitchen and stronger in the gym (er, living room).  Mostly what I do is try to eat as clean as possible, and exercise regularly.  While I […]

Isaac’s Words

Last night the kids and I spent some time watching some of the videos I posted to facebook of them.  Agh.  It is so fun to have those little clips to look back on of the kids at different times in their lives.  I’m not a huge video person, so I don’t take a lot […]

9th Anniversary

This past October 2, Peter and I celebrated our 9th anniversary.  I was not expecting anything to happen, we’ve both been very busy and we both aren’t very high maintenance.  Besides, next year is the big T-E-N so I was thinking “it’s totally fine if we don’t really do anything for our anniversary this year […]

Halloween 2013

Last night was Halloween and naturally my kids have been looking forward to it since November 1, 2012.  Eva plans and replans her costume all year long.  I have so many fond memories of trick-or-treating around the small town where I grew up and it is a lot of fun to see the kids all […]

Eva’s Grade 2 Homeschool 2013-2014

I wrote about Ezra’s curriculum and our first day of school, so now I am going to share about what Eva is doing this year in Grade 2! Let met tell you, I tossed and turned for months over what school/curriculum to go with for Eva this year.  I’d been looking into Sonlight, School of Hope, […]

First Day of School

We had our first day of school on Monday. Originally I wanted to start on September 3, the same as the public school system. Actually, I thought about starting in August but I clearly wasn’t ready for that since I didn’t even start Sept 3! I decided to start September 9, but Eva’s books didn’t […]

Homeschool Preschool 2013-2014

I have never written about it on here (or maybe I have, but not very much) but last January we decided to homeschool Eva.  She started grade one in school, and was gone all day, five days a week.  It was such a change to get used to driving her to school every day, doing […]

End of August

  I’m doing an odd thing tonight.  I took pictures of Eva and Isaac in the backyard (Ezra was already asleep in bed) and now I’m blogging.  I’m actually taking some time to do some things that I used to do for fun.  Sometimes taking pictures just isn’t even enjoyable for me anymore.  Okay, taking pictures […]

Bread & Wine – Book Review

I’d heard of Shauna Niequist a few times but kind of thought to myself “do I have enough time in my life for another blogger/writer?”.  Sometimes it just seems like there are too many books to read, too many awesome blog posts, and my heart is already full of favourites — but I couldn’t say […]

Some Books I’ve Been Reading

I’ve been intentional about reading this summer because I’ve had a huge stack of books to review and even more that I’ve purchased that are just sitting on my shelf.  So today, I’m going to share with you from four that I’ve recently read that were given to me to review.     I haven’t […]
