Why I’m Not a Craft Blogger

You know, when I first started blogging my craft-y adventures with my kids, I thought my blog might turn into a craft blog. That I might be able to hang with Make and Takes or Inner Child Fun. Alas, I have discovered that really, I’m just a crafty wannabe. I love all the Pinterest-worthy, etsy-licious […]

Make Your Own Dragon Book: Dragon Week

Dragon week is here! Well, it won’t really be a whole week here on the blog, but it was a whole week with my son! Every day that my daughter was at camp, Asa and I did some kind of dragon-themed activity based on How To Train Your Dragon 2 and James 3! The first […]

A Chain Around Your Neck (Whoo’s Wise)

Ready for the long-awaited 3rd installment of Whoo’s Wise?! As I was choosing verses to use in Proverbs (there are about 1,000 I would love to do!), these three stuck out at me because they are all so similar: Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. They are a garland to grace […]

Super Fast Way To Learn the Seven Days of Creation

It’s our first real day of homeschool. We’ve already had a few tears, I let Asa use a knife and (thanks to Brain Breaks) done a few cartwheels to get our focus back. I’m using God’s Little Explorers as a base for Asa’s schooling. I thought I was going to break out some “real” curriculum […]

DIY Beanbags For People Who Don’t Sew & Aren’t Too Crafty

Ever since I made that David and Goliath beanbag for Asa, he wants to make beanbags. He clearly has me confused with someone who knows how to sew or make adorable fabric crafts. But because we’re back into Mommy-and-Asa days, he keeps bringing up beanbags. After we drop Lydia off at school, I’ll ask, “What […]

When God Created My Toes

One of our favorite books is called When God Created My Toes by Dandi Daley Mackall. I’ve probably posted about it eleventybillion times because we love it. The pictures are modern and they are the kind of illustrations that tell more of the story than the words do. I love it! This week, while Lydia […]
