Currently, I am...

reading aloud Little Britches

listening to The Arts of Language podcasts from IEW

realizing that our school year is winding down

feeling good about what we're accomplishing

rowing Little Nino's Pizzeria

making art with Creating a Masterpiece

watching season 3 of When Calls the Heart with Elli

teaching Mali and Elli how to crochet a chain stitch and single crochet stitch

playing The Game of Life and Monopoly Deal card games with the kids

watching the boys play Risk, Axis and Allies, and Stratego

celebrating Malachi's 12th birthday

waiting for my genetic test from to see if I have the MTHFR gene

taking chaste tree to lower estrogen and supplements to balance pituitary function

enjoying all the snow we've had this month

taking the kids sledding

enjoyed the bit of sun we had this week

looking forward to a new month


  1. I love these posts :) Now I'm super curious about the test you're taking. I would love to do that!

  2. Thank you, Tara ♥ I'm excited about the genetic test - to see if I have the gene but also to see what my ancestry is - I've never known and am so curious!

  3. Always so fun to read your posts. Do you like IEW? We were given the complete set, not sure what all is in it, but definitely a lot! I am a bit overwhelmed with it all, but I think it will be a good curriculum.

  4. Julia, I do! I was given the complete set years ago and I too was overwhelmed by it all so I gave it away. Then I turned down a chance to review it on the Crew two years ago and I'm kicking myself for not taking the chance with IEW sooner! It is a wonderful writing curriculum!
