Into the Woods, Annie & Night At the Museum

Just a quick note to let you know Heather and I podcasted about some new seemingly-kid-friendly movies. You should listen before you head out to the theatre! And apparently I called Meryl Streep Glenn Close during the whole podcast. Boy howdy. That’s the kind of quality journalism you can expect around here, friends. (Let’s just call […]

Top 3 Books of 2014

Hey friends! Christmas has come and gone! Now we’re in my favorite week of the year–Christmas vacation where we don’t have any after school activities, my husband barely has to work and we literally have not one thing on the agenda. So, when my mind is off of to-do lists, it heads straight for books! […]

Gifts That Will Help Lead Your Kids to Jesus

I thought I’d do a little Bible-Based, Jesus-Centric Gift Guide for you and your kiddos this season (well, ONE WEEK TILL CHRISTMAS).

Like sometimes they just need to be sitting down, letting their little hands work and their little minds be creative. Sometimes when the house […]

One More Dragon Thing!!

I cannot believe I forgot to tell you about this one last dragon activity! It just popped into my head the other day. My very very favorite story of a dragon is actually one little part of a book—the story of Eustace in the Voyage of the Dawn Treader by CS Lewis! It’s one of […]

Dragon Themed Books for Little Dragon Lovers

One of my favorite parts of Dragon Week was the books! Oh, the books! We spent several hours at the library hunting for any and all dragon books. I taught Asa how to search by author and the Dewey Decimal system (ok, I may be a bit rusty at that part) and we had so […]
