Fall Into Fall

Fall Into Fall

Fall is one of my very favorite seasons.  I love the color, the food, and the cooler temperatures.  It is just about perfect–not to hot and not too cold.  I get to wear light jackets and long sleeve shirts.  Fall fruits like apples and pomegranates tickle my taste-buds along with all things pumpkin. At this […]

Autumn Equals Color and Comfort

I love Autumn. Of all the seasons, it is my second favorite (behind Spring). I enjoy the cooler weather and being able to wear a t-shirt and jeans. The air has a slight crispness to it and the vibrant colors on the trees as the leaves change color lend themselves to a feeling of comfort […]

It’s Beginning to Feel a Lot like Christmas

Why would anyone in their right mind be thinking about Christmas in September? Because, in the world of theater, one thinks months upon months ahead. You’d be surprised how much advance planning is needed to produce a quality theatrical production. This year is the 25th anniversary of Fantasy Playhouse Children’s Theater production of A Christmas […]

Chores in Our Home

At the Patterson home, as soon as our kids are able to be somewhat independent, their chores begin. At first they are really excited; but it’s not long before we struggle with getting them to stay on task. And it’s not too long before the higher up (aka Dad) gets wind of them falling down […]

TECHNOLOGY TRAP – Teaching Tech Responsibility

In this generation of teens and tweens there is a new force at work against parents like myself that wasn’t so much for my generation as teens.   The technology trap.   Several years ago, my now 14 year old son bought his own tablet to use for playing the ever popular Minecraft and listening to music […]

Doing Something Right

Standing at the kitchen sink with soapsuds up to my elbows, I look out the window and see a little boy under a tree. He has a lapboard and a bucket of crayons. He’s laying on his stomach with his feet up in the air.  A curious cat —that thinks it’s a dog —came to […]

Homeschooling For Free

I had every intention of writing an entirely different post for today.  But sometimes God has a way of whispering to your heart that you need to do something else.  Sometimes He gets so insistent that you almost feel like He has dropped a brick on your head.  That is how this post came to […]
