Our First Family Beach Day

The kids and I headed out to Lake Sunapee Park the other weekend with our Summer gear in hand. My youngest and oldest were determined to hop in the lake, even though I knew it was cold, cold water. The oldest did end up jumping in twice, crazy girl! I loved watching all three of the kids happily work together with their sand gear. They were building castles and moats and all this fun stuff together, with smiles upon their faces! Apparently the idea of sand gear wasn’t as appealing as burying your sister with sand at the beach. My […]

When I Was Called Skinny .. by my 4 Year Old

My four year old can be super sweet at times, I always call him my little charmer. He is seriously going to charm his way into some poor girls heart later in life but hopefully by then most of his evil, mischievous side has leveled out.  My four year old is a blast to be around, if you can handle a kid who runs constantly and never stops. This kid wakes up roaring to go and doesn’t stop moving until I lay him to bed between 7pm and 8pm at night, after about forty five minutes of talking to himself […]

A bit of Mother’s Day History – Julia Ward Howe

Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May and this is a day for lavishing your Mom with flowers, presents and luxurious treatment.  In history those who were more spiritual were more apt to celebrate and worship goddesses rather than mothers.  Egyptians used to celebrate once a year by worshiping the Goddess Isis, she was commonly referred to as the mother of the pharaohs. In the 1600’s England had a clerical decree that made it so that mother’s would be celebrated once a year, no longer would this annual celebration be the worship of goddess or other spiritual […]

How JenSpends met Her English Husband

This is a true love, I met my love online, story being shared by Jen from JenSpends. Our story is kind of nerdy.

G also had his own website where he uploaded photos of his scouting adventures and some poetry he had written. Back then “webrings” were also a big deal. You could join up with groups […]

We Love To Read

One thing I am thankful for is the fact that all my children love reading. I know this interest in reading has been instilled in them through daily book reading. We, as a family, read books daily. Basically every night before bed all three of the kids and me end up reading two books each and really do enjoy that time to relax before heading off to sweet dreams. Sometimes, I even catch my two year old continuing the reading long after we read our books together and happened to catch it on camera one day. Do you read to […]
