 We are living in a time that I never could have imagined.  Covid-19 has definitely shaken up all of our worlds, for better and for worse.  

Like most you, our spring was supposed to be filled with things like volleyball and baseball games, father-daughter dan...

You have to do it.  A week.  Or you can start with ONE WHOLE DAY.  Starts somewhere.  But give social media a rest.  

Start today. 

Let me tell you why.  Because it is one of those things that there is never a good time to do.  It's always a holiday o...

I am worrier. Especially when it comes to my kids. I am not proud of it. In fact, I hate this about myself.  

Sadly, when my kids were really young, I was the mom who rarely left her kids with a sitter or let them ride in a car with anyone. To be honest, I've...

Some of you already know, we have 4 kiddos ages 4, 7, 9, and 13.  I wish I could tell you that I read with all 4 of them every day, but honestly, I do not.  Our oldest, 13 does all of her reading on her own, but I know I should still be reading with her ocasionally.  N...

Happy New Year!  It's 2020!  I am so excited for this year. I am always excited for every new calendar year, new school year, new month, birthday.  I always love the idea of starting new! 

At the beginning of each school year and each calendar year, we al...

For the first time in the history of our family of six, we are a little ahead of schedule this year on holiday business. It was cold and rainy on Friday night, a perfect time to put up the Christmas tree. Or so I thought. It was Friday night after all, and everyone is...

A couple of weeks ago, the weather changed in Georgia from burning HOT to CHILLY overnight.  Halloween night to be exact.  For grownups, a change in wardrobe is usually kind of welcome!  You may have a whole section of "fall or winter" clothes that haven't been used in...

She stood in the yard.  Her tiny 4 year body with her grown-up size lungs and voice, screaming furry at me.  She'd said she was going around to the garage to get her shoes, so Daisy, our dog, and I took off slowly for our morning walk. She always runs to get her shoes...
