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.


Our New Chicken Coop


We decided to get chickens this year and have enjoyed having them around. We love the eggs, the help in preparing the garden, getting rid of kitchen scraps, and just watching them around the yard.

Springtime and the Treehouse


We had a lovely time outside today. I LOVE seeing little boys enjoy nature, especially when they are wearing adorable rain boots. Had lots of adventures in the treehouse Grandpa Stephen built for us. Caleb is 4 and Jack is 2 years old.

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
