October 9th

My butterfly baby! When pregnant with her I was 19 and would joke I would give birth to a butterfly. I loved the fluttering feeling. This wonderful face painting art was done by someone at the Maryland Ren fair. My daughter was taken by her Aunty and had a wonderful time. Clearly! We will all […]

The battle to change Birth fears!

Sitting still in one spot for hours with no creativity or room for expression is not normal and I […]

October 4th — Video Games

One might wonder why a waldorf inspired homeschool family would support video games, or for that matter be a military family, the latter I have spoken of before and will again, but for now let me explain former. My husband and I are Geeks. Is it that simple? Course not. We would not expose our […]

October 3rd

The littles colored on pumpkins at Meme and Pepe’s house on their Kid Vacation. They had a wonderful time. We talked everyday on the phone and even used video chat. It was hard being away from them but I think it helped us grow closer. October is here, time to have gratitude for all the […]

October 2nd — Learning to Crochet

On the Kid Vacation my oldest daughter was busy trying to help Meme learn to crochet. It seems lots of people wish they could do it and what better time to learn than right now. I think when the wind turns cold we all get a whisper of something telling us to get ready. I […]
