My One and Only Political Post

On Tuesday the littles and I loaded up and headed to the middle school just down the road a few minutes.  This was my first time voting there, but I was familiar with the school, as Aub went there in sixth and seventh grades.

Catch and Release

Our Princess came in from reading her science book yesterday afternoon.  She was quite upset. "Mama, do you know why the pond down there isn't running over with fish?!" she asked, referring to a fun fishing pond we've visited a couple of times.  "Do you know?  It's BECAUSE THE FISH ARE DYING!"

“Scratch It, You’re Done”

Today the crew and I found ourselves doing an unexpected end of semester move for our college girl.  It was a very good thing, and we rocked it.  We moved her across campus less than 24 hours after she got word she could move, and it took us 2 hours from start to finish.

Doing What is Beautiful

There is an Arabic term that means "doing what is beautiful." Ihsan This word embodies taking one's inner faith and living it out. Another part of this way of life is to live as though God were standing just over there and could be seen. This is such a lovely concept.  I have spent days… Continue reading Doing What is Beautiful

An Angel in the ATL

Today we made the trek up to the big ATL, Atlanta, the big city, for a checkup with a specialist.  Me, being me, I underestimated the time it would take to get there.  I also was not up to date with the information that they had moved offices. So while it was very near 11:00… Continue reading An Angel in the ATL

Flying with Fear

We are back home. Back into our day to dailies with full force after a weekend of getting away, literally and figuratively.  A weekend of fun and laughter and reconnecting. And of facing our fears. Head on. This past weekend was the Fella's family reunion that happens every couple of years.  While I've been to… Continue reading Flying with Fear
