What a whirlwind week it has been! Between administering 3 different assessment tests, finishing up 20 quilt blocks, 5 dentist appointments, and various church assignments, we have also been tackling a BIG FINAL PROJECT in our homeschool. We started this project a few weeks ago by first discussing and brainstorming ideas. Then assignments were made… Read More Year 4 Homeschool Project Completed!
It has begun! Rainy season. ☔️ https://tenor.com/view/stitch-crying-rain-gif-11266957 It’s that time of year when Costa Rica gets extremely humid and muggy. My poor, desert raised body stresses out to the max in this weather. Paul loves it, I don’t. Thankful our friend Spencer told us about this drink (not this flavor though, it’s GROSS!!!🤢) It is… Read More A BIG HELP!
So, I want to share with you something that I learned today during GingerSnap’s Family Devotional. We were watching this video when I saw this image 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 come across the screen. Do you see it?!? The word BLOG immediately jumped out at me! I had GingerSnap go back to the place I saw the image,… Read More My Favorite Blog!
Do you remember these? I used to blog about them all the time? I still get these emails EVERY day. Sometimes they really hit home, like today. This is one of my favorite scriptures. But the quote that came with it was my favorite part of the email. It said . . . I never… Read More I Didn’t Know This
It’s bedtime. But someone isn’t asleep yet. Silly girl! Silly hair! Terrible bruise! That’s why she is in our room right now, instead of in bed. She needed lavender to help heal her badly bruised arm. (She fell off her bunk bed a few nights ago, while climbing up the ladder.) Poor kid. Thankfully she’ll… Read More Punchy Sunday . . . Literally!
Sometimes we see the craziest things in life! Like this . . . We saw this group of cars near the airport. We thought that maybe they were parked there so that they could watch the airplanes land and take off. But we now think that they were parked on the hill so that freeway… Read More Sometimes . . .

The last week has been crazy busy! It’s mainly due to us wrapping up our homeschool year. I think if we weren’t headed out of town, things wouldn’t be so crazy. 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
Can I just say that I am SO BUSY these days! I haven’t played the piano in weeks. I haven’t relaxed or read a book. I haven’t created new dishes of food or spent quality time with my community. I have been busily preparing to go on this trip to the USA, while wrapping up… Read More Busy, Busy, Busy, Busy!
We had one amazing, wonderful and satisfying weekend. So much so, I literally forgot to blog. (I hope I blog on our trip in a few weeks. Maybe I’ll set an alarm to remind me? 🤷🏻♀️) Curly Cook started the weekend off by buying and wrapping a wedding gift for her primary teacher Julissa. She… Read More RNC Dance and a Wedding
