Mama’s Day!

Before we left on Friday, I got my Mother’s Day gifts.  The kids were so sweet (and so was Josh!). Ruby got me a sun hat.  Molly got me a chair for sunning.  Mack got me a cool firetruck that makes noises….only stipulation is that it has to stay in his room. We had fun in Augusta this weekend. I […]

Mother’s Day is coming…

Josh took the kids to Target last night so that each of them could pick out a gift for me for Mother’s Day.  He said Ruby decided very quickly and didn’t waver one iota.  This could be because she listens and remembers the best of all three of them.  I did some minor coaching, but Josh said it may have […]

Hiding Place

Anyone who has had a toddler knows how funny/ridiculous playing “Hide and Seek” can be!  Ruby introduced me to it when she would hide in the same place over and over and over again, each time sure we wouldn’t find her and so surprised when we did. Molly would hide wherever Ruby hid.  She’d get mad when Ruby would find her.  Go figure. Mack and I have hidden many, many, many times in his closet and waited on Josh to find us.  The same closet.  The same very small closet. I have a new favorite song.  The title is HIDING PLACE.  Sara Groves sings it. Early when the day is new Before the stirring I will come and talk to You And confess the ways I am broken To recall the words You’ve spoken And to try to comprehend The love You have for me You are my hiding place You fill my broken heart with songs Songs of deliverance You sing of how the weak are strong You never meant for me to walk alone You are always for me As the truest lover of my soul You hear my desperate calling You have kept my feet from falling And have set me on this rock on which I’m standing now You are my hiding place You fill my broken heart with songs Songs of deliverance You sing of how the weak are strong And I believe You For […]

School Room!

My wonderful husband went and picked up a chalkboard that his brother found on craigslist.com.  I have been wanting a chalk board in the school room for a while.  I just hadn’t found one that I loved and that was affordable.  This one is perfect!  The kids are already enjoying it. With Molly starting Kindergarten in the Fall and Ruby […]

Title goes here

I have no idea what to title this post, so I won’t.  It is random. First, caterpillars.  Last week Ruby and Katherine were intrigued by a few caterpillars.  I do not like anything crawling on me…even a caterpillar.  Here are some pictures… Molly was waiting on a caterpillar to take the bait…. Ruby went so far as to put her […]

More of the same

The days around here are sometimes routine.  Most of the time I like it that way.  Other times it makes me crazy.  I am sure I am not alone in these feelings. Yesterday we did school, Ruby made a dinosaur out of aluminum foil, Molly asked for 5 million snacks, we had a quick school meeting here, we ate lunch, […]

Big Teeth and Hair

Mack is a funny boy.  It is no secret that I have big hair.  It is also not a secret that my teeth are large as well.  🙂  I think Mack has it figured out.  For a while he has seemed intrigued with my hair.  He touches it.  It started off with him telling me that he liked my hair. […]
