Living Sustainably

Well guys, we've had a time lately. Lots of issues going on with the house and causing structural issues, and lots of resulting water damage. We've lost a lot of clothing, baby/toddler stuff, and lumber we had in our basement - a reminder that we are completely dependent on the Lord to provide for us, … Continue reading Living Sustainably

Homestead Updates: Where have we been!?

Hello friends!! Gosh it's been a while. Let me share a bit about what we've been up to. To start, my husband's been training as a firefighter for the city!

I was being nostalgic (always dangerous for me) and going through some older posts and photos. And I noticed something... I did way better at mothering and homeschooling before the 2021-2022 homeschool year... why? What totally fell apart this year that had [has] me in spiritual/emotional/routine/everything shambles?

Updates and Summer Workshop Series 2022!!!

Padding: A Remedy for Disorganization

I was reading an article on the New England Patriot's "secret art of padding" (though I caren't one iota for the Patriots, or the NFL) today, and it suddenly occurred to me how little I know about what's going on in my home, when it needs to get done, and who needs to do it. … Continue reading Padding: A Remedy for Disorganization

Making Christmas Gifts with the Children: A “Stuffy” Ball

I decided to have the kiddos draw names to make gifts for each other this year. I told them they could draw, paint, color, sculpt, sew- whatever they'd like to do. My oldest got my youngest's name and was pondering out loud, "What can I make her that she won't just break?...I got it! A … Continue reading Making Christmas Gifts with the Children: A “Stuffy” Ball
