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.


Uncanny Resemblance


Love when I get similar pictures to compare. They definitely are different looking boys, but this picture is the most similar of pictures I have of both boys so it’s easiest to compare here. You can tell they’re brothers though! Here’s Caleb at 6 days old (September 11, 2007): Here’s Jack at 8 weeks old Read More

iPhone Recording Device

They play fetch with Ella’s toys, he gives her dog treats, she comes when he calls her (sometimes), they sit by each other and cuddle under a blanket when we’re on the couch together. Sometimes Caleb will even Read More
