Sorry I haven’t written for a few days. I was on a much needed holiday with family who are visiting from the States. They invited us to join them, and their 3 children, to watch mother turtles bury their eggs in the sandy beaches of Ostinal, Costa Rica. It was a fascinating experience for all… Read More Ready, Set, Go!

But since we are, we’ve just got to roll with it. Because these kiddos won’t stay little for much longer. I’m hoping that our… Read More Busy Being a Homeschool Mom
We went to Kidzania today. The two youngest got passports. GingerSnap is almost too old to go, so she just got the credit card. It is literally a city just for kids. The kids were expected to work and earn kidzo (money), so they could buy experiences. What they earned went onto their own credit… Read More Kidzania

Like helping my second oldest daughter face a yucky day, by helping her finally learn to make something she has been craving (rice pudding). But right as… Read More One of those days . . .
So, the two kiddos worked diligently to earn the privilege of attending school today. Due to their argument last Thursday, they had a fine to pay, and until that fine was paid, they were suspended from school. Thankfully, after an hour and a half reminder course on what “getting along” looks like, including HOW to… Read More Sibling Rivalry Update
While lying in my hospital bed, at 2:15 a.m. this morning, I felt prompted to send a message to Ashtyn and tell her that her example has been helping me face and see through my health issues this week. But what I found in my private messages to her, touched me profoundly. I had already… Read More #TBT – October 29, 2016 – “A Facebook Message to Ashtyn’s Army”
