Pick a Patch of Pumpkins!

On Monday, we took the kids up past the (Missouri) river to a pumpkin patch/farm near Sugar Creek.  We had a lot of fun tooling around the farm, enjoying all the farm animals, the petting zoo, the children's play area, the farm trikes (which Levi and Zeke loved), and the train ride.  Zeke was the mo…

Family Update

In case you've been following my blogs and wonder if I ever got all the kids clothes gone through, the answer is,  'Yes".  We finished with the clothes last Saturday!   It sure is a good feeling to have all of that finished.  Having the stored clothes boxed up in clear containers and labeled sure do…

Interesting Story

I found this story on a Home School website.  When I read it, it made me think about a lot of things when it comes to the freedoms in our country, not just the purpose it was intended for. It's main intent is to make you think about federal funding, but I would ask... what kinds of things do we "pa…

What's Valuable to You?

For the past 5 days, I have watched in awe (as most of us have) as the news reports come flooding in from the "golden state".  California is burning and there are no human efforts that can stop it's force!  

Several news clips from last night have shown families impacted by the fiery devastation. …

What's it Like to be a Baby?

Now that Shad is 8 weeks old (today) and he's had some experiences to reference, we asked him what he thought it was like being a baby.   He said....It's okay!This is not the first time Shad has posed this way.  We were just lucky to get the shots this time! Yeah, that's what we thought!

You Light Up My Life... or at Least My Street!

The frost was on the pumpkin this morning, or in our case, Peter's motorcycle seat.  He had to scrape the frost off before he could come home from the police station!  No one likes frosty buns!  The officers went back to their winter uniforms, too, so last week I had the privilege of sewing more Co…

Six of us had dental appointments earlier this week and I am happy to report that we all had great checkups.  I am so grateful that we have a wonderful dentist and that my kids have never been afraid to have an exam.  They actually look forward to it... well at least to the prize and new toothbrush …

How Many States Have You Been To?

Twice a year, I end up going through all the kids clothes for the upcoming season.  Well, I worked several hours this weekend and most of yesterday and I am STILL not finished.   I have decided that our house is not big enough for us and all of our stuff, so we are going through other things as well…

The Purple Plum Tree

We were out working in the yard a few days ago, when suddenly I lost track of Zeke.  I was shocked that he could disappear so fast... right in front of me!  Well, it didn't take me too long to realize that he hadn't run off somewhere; he went up.  Up into a tree that is.

When we moved into our hou…

Saturday's Snippets

I hope you caught the Glenn Beck show last night with special guest John Hagee.  I thought it was the best show I've seen in awhile and I could have watched those two talk for hours!   True to Hagee fashion, the conversation touched on prophesy, America, the Middle East, the return of Christ, politi…

The Answer to Tuesday's Question

What did this flower from our garden remind us of?????


Here's the answer!

Of course, our cup is pink- not yellow, but check out the ones in the bottom right of the picture! All our flower needed was a handle!

I guess that brings new meaning to a "Tea Rose".  We'll call it the "Tea Cup Rose" fr…

Guess What We're Thinking

We were busy working in the school room when I glanced up and noticed the bouquet of fresh cut flowers from the yard.   What?  That looks like... and I giggled a little.  The kids (who can't seem to read my mind) asked what was so funny so I simply asked them, "What does the pink rose look like to y…

Well, Well, Well !

After suffering with horrendous cold-like symptoms for nearly 3 weeks, I finally broke down and scheduled a visit with my doctor last Thursday.    I couldn't stand the coughing and phlegm anymore, plus I was concerned that the baby would start to come down with whatever I was battling.   My husband …
