The month the kids always wait for is in full swing. Why do they wait for this particular summer month... SWIM CLASS! They began their M-F sessions this week and will finish up on the 14th. They have great teachers this year. The next reason... Read more
On the road to gluten & dairy free...
Wednesday, July 22, 2009      6 comments

...we took a field trip to the Coop in the neighboring town (a 30 minute trip one way) to see what we could find that wasn't carried in the regular grocery stores. The kids' goal was to find something they thought was really "Ugly Bugly" since ... Read more
Plugging Along
Thursday, July 16, 2009      2 comments

I am doing great keeping gluten and dairy out of my diet. I just can't believe it can take 2 years to straighten out my small intestines but I figure by then...this will definitely be the way of life so why care. For my 10-day challenge ... Read more
Lavender Lemonade Fun

Today I was able to spend over four hours with my little girl helping her run a lemonade stand at grandma's "Lavender Acres." She had so much fun and was quite happy that she has $5 in hand after expenses. Just a sweet time. ... Read more

I signed up to be part of the 10-day challenge with others on LIL Mommies. I had to select three goals and meet those goals for 10 consecutive days. If I don't, I have to start all over again! I think this will be "fun!" My goals are: ... Read more

Thought this was a very appropriate "healthy reflection" today. So here's my list of some things that are good in my life! * 26 1/2 years of married life * a wonderful hubby * two blessings from God (my children) * a nice home to l... Read more

What a wonderful time at the lake yesterday. The weather held out and dd said all day that God would make sure it didn't rain. Turns out she was right about that! LOL The... Read more
Lifting Yourself Up
Sunday, June 07, 2009      0 comments

Oh how this one hit home today! I definitely needed this pep talk: "Remember that what happens to you is not who you are. It's history. It's past. Your true self takes that history and decides how to make the best possible future out of it.... Read more
Sent Packing!
Wednesday, May 27, 2009      5 comments

After two years in the wilderness God finally has said "get going" so I've packed up and headed out for the unknown! For those that know me around here that will make sense. For others...it began with a Beth Moore study called "A Woman After G... Read more
Believing In Yourself
Friday, May 22, 2009      1 comments

I needed this reminder today. Especially this: "No matter what anyone says--no matter what you might believe--it can be done. " I've been feeling as though nothing is going to work but I know better. It can be done. My "Godly Baby Step" th... Read more

Paying Attention
Tuesday, May 12, 2009      1 comments

Here's the keeper for me today: "...we're waiting for something else to happen in the future, and we don't take advantage of the day that we hold in our pocket." I know the days slip mindlessly by so this has been a good reminder that I reall... Read more
Persistance
Thursday, May 07, 2009      0 comments

The last line says a lot: "Sometimes, you can find victory in the effort." I do find myself saying "why bother" when it seems nothing is working and the scale won't budge. I get so tired of trying so hard and seeing nothing. I know that mean... Read more
