March has come in quickly. I can hardly believe it’s already the 6th! It was just February.
This month brings lots of reviews. Things from the Crew and lots of other places. Great books from great authors we love to read!
I spent last week gathering a menu for the month. I haven’t done one in quite a while. 32 days to get us through to next month. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snack since we are homeschoolers and we’re home all day most days.
My biggest challenge is always feeding the picky eaters and keeping up with who eats what and how they prefer certain foods. Laycie isn’t a bread lover. Jack doesn’t like variety. Win’s least favorite is veggies. Emma doesn’t eat cabbage and has recently decided she’s not a fan of toast.
This month provides some fun for our menu though. We will eat mostly Irish meals the week of St. Patrick’s Day. We also have Easter on April 1st so I chose the plan to include that as well. Lots of variety and fun new foods to try.
Last night, we had Pigs In A Blanket with brats instead of hot dogs. We’ve cut out hot dogs a lot because of the processing of them and switched to sausage when we can. They were good but not a favorite for us this time.
I’m still writing. I’m also diving into our ancestry which is fun. It’s been awesome seeing who we’re all related to and just how unique our family truly is. The kids have enjoyed the lessons as well. I hope so share more on this in the future.
I’m feeling better, health and energy wise. I think it shows. Healthier me will bring more time to work online as well as get out and do more. I’m looking forward to taking photos again and sharing more of those here on our little blog.
Well, that is us, for now.
Until next time…
I’ve contemplated what to write here for 15 minutes. Sometimes, you just don’t have anything to say. Silence is one of my favorite things. Sitting and listening to nothing but the breeze brings about a sense of peace and balance.
This was a busy month for us. First Mom’s birthday, then Valentine’s and then Emmalee’s birthday. It makes for a fun week.
This month also brought our first review for the Homeschool Review Crew. The curriculum we receive through them is always a blessing.
Several other reviews happened this month as well. I’m happy we are again in a place where I can provide those for our readers. We enjoy our reviews.
Emma has started diving into her own business of bracelets. You’ll see more about those soon. They will eventually be for sale. This has been a long time goal of hers. Art has her heart, and jewelry design does as well.
This month, I realized I had lost my camera charger somewhere on our travels. I was able to get a new one and look forward to working on imagery again. I mean, what was the purpose of my time in college if I’m not going to put it to use right?!
I started a book this month. You’ll see more to come on that soon as well. It’s a hard thing for me to announce and I’m almost fearful of it’s release but it’s been long in coming.
The kids are good. Our family is good. Life is good.
Until next time…
In a household filled with children, we are always on the hunt for great new books to read. Do Baby Bears Have Mommies? fit exactly what we look for in a great book. This book, a part of the I’ve Got Questions series made a great family read for us all.

Well this little book helps to answer that question, among others that leads to an adorable story that shares with your little one the love of God. Baby bears do indeed have Mothers, just as we do and a Mother’s love is a precious thing.

My personal relationship choices have not always been the best. It took me a long time to learn to choose a man by God’s standards. This isn’t something we’re taught in today’s world. So finding the perfect marriage has been challenging for me personally.
The one thing I do know is that no marriage is perfect, just as no person is perfect. You both have to want it. You both have to work hard to have your marriage work. You both have to put in all that you can to have everlasting happiness.
And you have to be Real. Be real together. Overlook the flaws of one another and find forgiveness.
Through No More Perfect Marriages, Mark and Jill Savage guide you through the fundamentals of creating a healthy marriage with each other. They teach you how to forgive past mistakes and move forward to build the best love your life has known. You learn to guard against the seven “slow fades” and grow.
No More Perfect Marriages is the perfect book to make you realize that you’re not alone and others struggle with marriage and relationships as well. It’s a helpful book to help you find your way back to a happier and more loving marriage. This is one book you will love!
