Well…that may be a bit dramatic…but I did cut off a good chunk of my left index finger. Completely OFF. I was cutting fabric for a quilt, like I’ve done dozens, maybe even hundreds of times. I must have looked up for a split second – my blade slipped up over the ruler and took […]

Our newest little bundle is a month old already! He’s still sleeping lots during the day and not as much in the night…but whenever he sleeps, he’s always wrapped up in one of these fabulous cotton muslin swaddling blankets from Aden + Anais. They’re my favorite things ever.  Here he is at during  various naps over […]

We moved a year ago and we’re all still working on making friends. I’ve been trying to help my first grader especially, so we decided to start an after school building club with a few other boys. MegaBloks generously agreed to sponsor our club and send us everything we could possibly need and then some! […]

My friend created catchy versions of three well known kids songs.  I’ve shown them to my boys ages 6, 4, and 2 and they all love to watch them and ask to watch them over and over.  The best part is that the songs don’t get old quickly like kids music usually does. The first […]

Now that it’s finally spring, we’ve unearthed all our outdoor toys and are spending more time in the cool sunshine. New this spring is Radio Flyer’s Cyclone bike – it’s different from anything we’ve tried before and we’re loving it! With arm powered action instead of foot pedals, kids from 3 – 7 years can cruise AND […]

Well, we’ve had another fun filled week of building and re-building, this time the new Jeep Off-Road Adventure set from Mega Bloks. My boys were thrilled to help me review this set – they love the figures and the two cool Jeep vehicles, a green Expedition Jeep and orange off-road Jeep. The Expedition was Elliot’s […]

My young kids are constantly wanting to watch television shows on the internet. I usually let them watch one show a day after all their schoolwork and chores are done, but since they’re only 6 and 4, I don’t feel comfortable leaving them to their own devices for that half hour. It’s not like putting […]

I haven’t posted a lot about this, but I’m homeschooling my 1st grader part time this year. He’s a good student and has been successful in public school but I want to be more involved with his education. We’re having lots of fun, especially with lapbooks. We recently read My Father’s Dragon by Ruth Stiles […]
