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.


Jack’s Obsession


Grandma Lewis gave the kids a ziplock bag that was full of a variety of little balls. Some were rubber bouncy balls, some were covered in suction cups for climbing down walls, some were soft pompons. For a time, Jack was absolutely obsessed with this bag of balls. He’d carry it around along with a Read More

Celebrating Nine Years!


9th Anniversary, originally uploaded by StephLewis. Yesterday, Josh and I celebrated nine years of marriage. I know, nine years? Wow. That’s a lot. This last year has been a rocky one.

Josh recently bought me a copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone because he’s sick of not being able to discuss the finer points of the series with me. He has been trying to get me to read it since the books started coming out and I have always pushed off his harrassment claiming Read More
