A Few of My Favorite (Fall) Things

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17 Fall brings mixed emotions for me–celebration and grief. I celebrate the birth of my two oldest children and I grieve the memory of lost loved ones. Some years, the […]

Praline Sweet Potatoes

Have you noticed in recent years that sweet potatoes have seemed to make a comeback? Many restaurants now offer sweet potato fries or even baked sweet potatoes. I love those new healthy options, but nothing can take the place of Praline Sweet Potatoes for Thanksgiving. This is one of my girl’s favorite recipes and has […]

Using Google Drive in Your School Planning

I admit that I am not the most organized of people. I have been homeschooling for the past 9 years, and in those years I have mostly taken a “fly by the seat of your pants” approach to planning. For the most part, it worked. But this year we started a new chapter in our […]

A Gluten Free Thanksgiving Meal, Seriously?

I know Thanksgiving was made for turkey and stuffing, Oh yeah!! However when you have allergies or intolerances it isn’t always that way. Sadly, I really hadn’t given much though to either of these situations until I was hit in the gut with a gluten allergy/intolerance. I am very thankful for my overall health, I […]

Experts Without Answers

Having done research most of my life into learning, and especially learning when there are struggles of any kind present, I have discovered a few things. One is that no one is a learning or teaching expert. No one has all the answers. Two is that anyone can learn, no matter their problems, if they […]

Gluten-Free Chicken Stir-Fry

This is one of our favorite meals any time of year. I especially like it since it’s fast and easy while being all done in one pot. Let’s face it, who wants to do massive amounts of dishes? Bonus: it’s easily made gluten-free, which is important in my house considering I have one with a […]

Choosing To Be Thankful

In the American culture, the month of November is synonymous with Thanksgiving.   Not in giving thanks, but in the decadent meal prepared on the fourth Thursday in November.   We all have our favorite dish, or favorite Thanksgiving memory. It’s as American as apple pie (or in November, pumpkin pie). If you use social media during […]

Thankful Placemats

We, of course, try to remember all the things we are thankful for throughout the year, but it comes to the forefront of our minds every November when we gather with family and friends and celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday.   One of the things we’ve done several times to involve all of the kids (and it […]

Crafting With Kids –Turkey Napkin Rings

The kids and I did a fun craft to use at our extended family get together. The craft requires colored paper, toilet paper tubes, and glue. We traced a set of the templates onto cardboard to make them more sturdy for each child. The body that we made was 2″ tall by 2 3/8″ wide, […]

Instilling a Thankful Heart

When I was a kid, Hook was one of my go-to movie choices to watch when I was up all night. (Jumanji was the other choice, but that has no merit to my thoughts today, besides letting you know I have awesome taste.) One of the scenes in it was of Captain Hook talking 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 […]
