That Time My 3 Year Old Needed “Exploratory Surgery”

1 year ago it was the day before Father’s day and 2 days before our anniversary. We had a getaway planned the next night to celebrate our anniversary. My husband was preaching that Sunday and being commissioned with the youth group for the upcoming mission trip that would begin 1 week later. 1 year ago,Continue reading “That Time My 3 Year Old Needed “Exploratory Surgery””

“Exploratory Surgery” and the Goodness of God

Just like I’ve seen ear infections ‘come back’ after the antibiotics were done could mean the same thing might be possible with a UTI, right? Early in May Rosie got sick suddenly with a fever and pain she described to me was when going to the bathroom. A round of medicine seemed to clear upContinue reading ““Exploratory Surgery” and the Goodness of God”

A Little Travel Vlog of our Vacation

I am not a YouTuber… this is my FIRST experience completing a video with iMovie and it took me WAY too long. But, my you-tubing sister encouraged me to try this because it would be a fun way to look back on the memories since I typically take videos and pictures anyway! So thanks, Holli…Continue reading “A Little Travel Vlog of our Vacation”

100 Days of NO TV

In just a few short weeks I will be unplugging my TV and physically removing it from my living room for 100 days. Why?? If you don’t already know, I now have a 6 year old, a 4 year old and a 2 year old. We watch some form of TV every day. I amContinue reading “100 Days of NO TV”

My Faith and a John Lennon Song

Motherhood has been such a rollercoaster. I still don’t really know if I have completely accepted the fact that this is my life. It all happened so fast and in the midst of many other transitions. It is hard work and it can be stressful and completely draining and exhausting. It seems like I will be doing this forever…I know it will feel like all of a sudden I will blink and my children are adults. Part of me is excited for that season, and part of me doesn’t want it to come too fast.

When We Became The Sick Family

So, apparently kids get 4 to 6 colds a year (this is according to WebMD, but our local doctor said 5 to 7). I don’t know about you but I am so over this cold and flu season. I’m sick of doing all the things to try and stay healthy, and in my experience so far, doingContinue reading “When We Became The Sick Family”

5 Funny Things I Did By Friday

I’ve been battling a bad cold this week and have been feeling really foggy and run down. There have been some funny/interesting/random moments this week that maybe will give you a laugh or an idea. Enjoy! I let my kids cut and paste images from an IKEA magazine onto construction paper and told them toContinue reading “5 Funny Things I Did By Friday”

Confessions of a Seminary Wife: Sacrifices (Post from Sept 2013)

Drowsiness ensues as I lay in my bed wondering whether or not I will say goodnight to my husband before the nocturnal demands overtake my exhausted body.  BUZZ! goes the dryer.  I’ll get it tomorrow. Cheerios are scattered across half of the living room floor with the vacuum standing as a borderline between the cleanContinue reading “Confessions of a Seminary Wife: Sacrifices (Post from Sept 2013)”
