Homeschool Itinerary

Since moving to Washington and even a little before then, I had been homeschooling my 5 yo daughter. In lieu of the recent COVID-19 outbreak, our schools are closed for the next six weeks, which means my 8 yo son will be home with me as well. I have created a homeschool itinerary that has […]

Our Books

We’re authors! I say we because it takes the collaborative effort of my husband and I to produce these books. I’ve spent countless evenings and early morning clacking away on my laptop keys, sometimes awaking my hubby. For the most part, I’m the writer and hubby is the publisher, handling all background and technical work. […]

The Wilson’s Move to Washington

I was thinking of The Watson’s Move to Birmingham by Christopher Paul Curtis when I wrote the title for this post.

On the First Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me..

…A cold. Technically, my true love didn’t give me this cold. My little love did. After doctoring on him all last week, he happily shared his little germs with me. I had so many plans to make cookies with the kids, fix some greens, play with them with all of their new toys. But my […]

Books We Like to Talk About

Every now and then, the hubby and I like to find a nice quiet spot to read. We’d like to find these quiet spots, but we don’t know where they are, because after all, we’re the parents of two small children. However, the hub prefers non-fiction books and listens to them on audio while driving […]

Lessons Learned

One year ago today, I took two flights home to find that I was just 45 minutes shy of saying goodbye to my mother as she left this earth.  A wise friend once told me not to count the weeks and months that go by; it wouldn’t be a fair way to let myself heal […]

Waffle Wednesdays

Everybody’s heard of Taco Tuesday. So how about Waffle Wednesday?   Waffles on Wednesday started when I realized we only have full size breakfasts on Saturday. Because of my work schedule (which is Monday through Friday), I would often get up on Saturday mornings and make pancakes, eggs and maybe some bacon and sausage. Usually […]
