Review of Smallfoot

By leah | Oct 13, 2018

I had seen a trailer a few months back about a yeti discovering that humans were real, and it looked funny, so when I saw that it was in theaters I decided to take the boys to see it yesterday. We settled in with a bucket of stale popcorn, the movie started, and I noticed…

By leah | Jun 7, 2018

This week, I have taught the boys how to weave. The younger two have eaten it up and have been working on projects every day. Our oldest I believe finally got curious enough to try it.

I remember years ago when my fiancé (now husband) told me that I was his best friend. To be honest, I was taken a back. We had a short courtship and while I loved him very much, at that point, it had not occurred to me to think of him as my best friend. It…

I wrote recently on the fact that life does not always go as planned, and that can be frustrating if you are a planner like myself. Another week of homeschool has gone by and we are about to make some more changes to the plans that I made for our family. While I believe this…

Today was the day. The day that has been on my mind for months. One that I have been looking forward to and dreading at the same time. It was the last day of public school for my family. I am hoping to write more about why we made this decision later, but right now,…

Bad Advice

By leah | Dec 30, 2016

Open Mouth Insert Foot So, this morning I learned a hard lesson.  I say learned…I suppose I am in the middle of learning it.  I realized that a piece of advice that I gave my child (two years ago) was not good.  I shared something that I had been taught, but when I did so…

Then He spoke many things to them in parables, saying: “Behold, a sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them. Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no…
