What’s your homestyle?

Since deactivating my Facebook account, I have missed some of the silly quizzes on there. (Ok, I’ve missed some other things too.) So I was very excited to stumble across this quiz tonight. Surprisingly, the result was spot on: Adriane, you are a Country Eclectic You have wide…

Just because…

they’re so darn stinking cute… The morning ritual of petting the cat.  Max comes into the house, eats breakfast, and climbs into the girls’ laps.  Sorry about The Baby’s lack of pjs.  He had all ready had a spill that morning. It doesn’t take long for the…

Preschool in our home

Years ago while studying accounting in college, I made the comment that I would never teach little ones.  I said that I just didn’t have the patience to work with anyone under the age of 14.  Of course, two years later, I changed my major to elementary/special education…

Week 4 in our home school – The artsy week

This was a busy week in our school.  We did all of the normal…reading, writing, arithmetic…but we also focused quite a bit on art this week.  David, my husband, is very artistic and I am not.  It seems that our children seem to be inheriting his artistic abilities…

Heard around our house tonight…

I’m giving Sunshine girl (3yo) a hug when she tells me, “You smell good Mommy.” “Thanks Sunshine,” I said. She continues with, “You smell like popcorn.” Me unsure of whether this is a compliment or not, “Ummm, thanks…” &#8220…

So What’s This Blog about Anyway?

I am not new to blogging. If you look under my links, you will see a link to the remains of my previous blog. It’s not pretty, folks. It’s full of holes and gaps from me being wishy-washy and deciding to delete and then changing…

A Real Look at Life in a White House on Pennsylvania Avenue

What girl doesn’t dream of the romantic white cottage with the white picket fence and arbors of trailing roses? Of course, it has to be viewed in the hazy dream-like fog as seen in greeting cards. This same girl would spend her days tending to her flower…
