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.


Happy 1st Birthday, Jack!


It is so hard to believe that a year ago, Jack was just a tiny little newborn peanut. (Our nicknames for him are “Peanut Butter” and “Cha-cha.”) Then, I just remember being so thankful that I wasn’t pregnant anymore and wondering what kind of kid that little bundle would turn out to be.

Caleb’s 2 1/2 Year Update


Caleb is 2 1/2 (31 months old) and he has a new haircut. I was inspired by the worship leader at our church, Dan Holst, for this little cut. I think it makes Caleb look like a really hip bully. I thought I’d take a few moments to note what he’s doing these days. Story Read More
