I am an artist & teacher with a ❤ for visual expression, educational methodology, homesteading, & Jesus. My geek-love is The Joshua and we have three peanut-butters: Caleb, Jack, & Louritta.


Last Week Was Scary


So, last week was not the best week for the Lewis family. The quick summary is that I started having health symptoms that are scary, and the cause was likely linked to problems with my heart and blood. So, after lots of fatigue, dizzy spells, heart monitors, doctors visits, and obsessing over fine details about Read More

Caleb @ 22 Months


I did an unofficial weight & measurement of Caleb when I went to the doctor today. Here are his current stats: Weight: 24.3 lbs. Height: 33.5″ I’m also glad I scored on his “next size of shoes” last week. I came home and he wanted to wear a pair and I put them on him, Read More

iPhone Recording Device


So, Josh’s new iPhone has this recording device on it that’s pretty good. So, here are some recordings we’ve done with Caleb. Caleb is 21-22 months in all of these. Caleb is playing the piano while I talk to and sing with him. I try to get him to sing too. (actually, this first recording Read More

Google Reader Wishlist


I love Google Reader. I used to read blogs and news by actually going to a million web pages regularly, but their designs were usually heinous looking and it took way to long to load them all on my browser. When I finally switched to using Google Reader, I was relieved to see that they Read More

Syrup Pancake Pants

Caleb is 21 Months Old! Here’s an Update.

Beginning yesterday he has started taking off if I’m talking to someone (he used to stand and wait nicely… what happened?). Today the receptionists at the check-in desk got quite a kick out Read More

Fighter Verses


I have been maintaining a site at fighterverse.com for several months now, but have decided to give up my domain to the fighterverses.com guys. Mostly it’s because I’m just not able to be consistent with it, and a lack of consistency will kill a blog. Especially one that needs to be consistent. I normally wouldn’t Read More

What Does a Mama Do?


Caleb has loved playing house with his Little People house and car lately. It has a dad, a mom, and a baby. He keeps them very busy. They all use the potty and then take a bath afterwards. The baby goes night-night frequently. And then he loads them all in the car and drives him Read More

Caleb Goes to the Emergency Room


On Monday, Caleb and are were hanging out eating breakfast. He started showing symptoms of a cold on Sunday afternoon, but nothing past your runny nose and being tired. At night he started coughing. And, by our Monday morning breakfast time, he started showing signs of being worse. He started coughing a “barky” cough while Read More
