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.

Kid Updates

Jack is 9 Months Old


(Actually, he’s almost 10 months old as I write this. Yikes!) Look at this sweet little man! He is efficiently crawling and pulling up everywhere. This means that he gets into everything, but is exceptionally cute at doing so. In the past few days he has fallen in love with this Cozy Coupe car. He Read More

Caleb is 3 Years Old!


Caleb turned three at the beginning of September. That is totally insane. He is no longer a little toddler, he is all boy. A boy who is a flurry of passion and activity. Can you keep up with him? I dare you to try. It is a sport, I tell you. A SPORT. That being Read More

Jack 6 Month Update


I blinked. I shouldn’t have, but I did. I blinked and all of a sudden, my precious little newborn became 6 months old and acquired a lovely personality. His Stats From the Doctor Weight: 15 lbs. 11.7 oz. (19%) Length: 26.2″ (42%) Head: 16.9″ (27%) He got 3 shots and an oral vaccine while there. Read More

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

My Boy


I was at Barnes and Noble with Caleb talking to the Nook sales associate. She looked at Caleb and said, “Oh my goodness! Look at your long, thick eyelashes! You are going to be so pretty when you grow up!” Caleb furrowed his brow and said, “No! I AM A BOY!” Hilarious.

Jack 4 Month Update


Jack went to the doctor today. He got an oral vaccine and two shots. Here are his stats: Weight: 14 Pounds (29th percentile) Length: 24.7″ (39th percentile) Head: 16.25″ (24th percentile) If you’d like, you can compare him to Caleb. Caleb was almost two pounds heavier and had almost the exact same length and head Read More

Paragraphs that Start with Caleb


Caleb approached a girl at the library and said, “Hi, my name is Caleb, who are you?” Her mom said that her name was Micayla. Caleb said, “Oh, hi Micayla. I like books. I like the big horned owl. He goes hoo! hoo! Hoo-hoo-hoo hoo!” She looked at him strangely. Then he said, “Bye! See Read More

Jack’s Hair


Josh is trying to get me to give Jack a haircut. I am resisting because Jack’s just a little peanut with wispy baby hair. He does have VERY short hair on the top, and these lovely “wings” on the sides. Some kind of baby mullet? Not sure. Anyway, in my trying to convince Josh that Read More
