Unfortunately, unseasonably cold weather kept us from going to the pool that first weekend. … Read More

Because of this, I was reluctant to push my kids to read certain books. I wanted their … Read More

Since my dear friend, Mrs. Disciple, stopped her #FridayFive series, I have not been as consistent as I would like with my writing.  A few other blogger friends have joined the Five Minute Friday link-ups, and I have decided to do the same. I’m not sure it will be every week, but I want to get writing more.  The point of Five Minute Friday is they provide a topic, and you write for five minutes.  Simple enough.  Today’s topic: Play. … Read More
