Light at the End of the Tunnel?

Last week I dragged myself in to my lovely Dr.'s office to get all of my check ups.  I was LONG over due and every time I would tell some one how LONG it had been since my last check up, they would GASP!  With every GASP I began to find myself worrying a little … Continue reading Light at the End of the Tunnel?

Meaningful Texts

A few nights ago, I received this text from Jessie,one of my very dear college friends.  It has been several years  since I wrote these books and several years since Greta died but I  LOVE getting these little notes here and there about how my books have touched little hearts, especially the children of sweet friends.

Photographing a Home School Co-Op Graduation

 I have the honor of photographing the Cottage Garden Class of 2015 tomorrow morning. Cottage Garden is a Home School co-op.  It has been around for over 16+ years.  I did it last year for the Class of 2014 and I think I'm just as nervous.   I don't do weddings. Well I've done two--and … Continue reading Photographing a Home School Co-Op Graduation

Happy Anniversary MOM & DAD

After 39 years of marriage, the two in the middle have grown into a family of 15, soon to be 16 members!  Sure we have our moments of frustration with one another, but overall the bond that keeps us "glued" together is STRONG!  That "glue" is God!   We know if we put HIM first, … Continue reading Happy Anniversary MOM & DAD

Rain, Shine, Multitasking Photo Shoot

The night before the horrific tornado in Van, I had a photo shoot with some sweet friends, the Curreys, who live in Van.  There was some uncooperative weather on this particular evening and I think we will long remember the chaos in trying to load and unload a couch on a flatbed trailer in the … Continue reading Rain, Shine, Multitasking Photo Shoot

Am I a Believer?

After my Jamberry Nails experiment, I feel like I'm less of a skeptic, maybe even a BELIEVER!   Just like any manicure or pedicure that you get from the nail salon or do yourself, you have to know that "THINGS" can happen and probably will, especially if you are me.  I do believe that the trick … Continue reading Am I a Believer?

A Town in Need-Please help

Last night East Texas was rocked pretty hard!  As we drove home from church last night, we saw lightning in the sky that took our breath away!  I can't recall the last time I saw that kind of lightning. The small community of Van, which isn't far from us, was hit by a E-F3 Tornado. … Continue reading A Town in Need-Please help

How This Home School Family finishes up their school year with a Co-Op

My 2nd child received her Kindergarten Diploma a few nights ago.  We homeschool but we do enjoy the company and structure that a Homeschool Co-op offers our family.  I love seeing how my children interact with their peers and enjoy seeing them walking down the halls to their  classes.

Day 8- Jamberry Nails Experiment

It has been over a week that I have adorned these colorful, Jamberry Nail wraps on my fingers.  I have done my very best to document certain activities that I'm currently involved in and how the nail wraps have held up.  Of course there are a number of other daily rituals in which I didn't … Continue reading Day 8- Jamberry Nails Experiment

Day 7- Jamberry Nails Experiment

  The thing that we are learning is DEMOLITION is a whole lot quicker than the reconstruction part of a home renovation.  I had been washing our dishes in our bathtub, and doing it with my Jamberry Nail wraps I might add. My beloved husband finally got the kitchen counter top installed, which meant  that he … Continue reading Day 7- Jamberry Nails Experiment
