Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real

round button chicken

Learning to appreciate the simple beauty, humor & joy in the middle of real our very real life.


I have been PRETTY impressed with how hard this kiddo works on his preschool. He absolutely loves it and is a joy for me to teach


Our Homeschool Choir has a registration swim party at the directors home. Our kiddos had loads of fun swimming their afternoon away and I had a great time visiting with many friends.


This picture fails to reveal that after these two little cherubs finished painting they started drinking their water. Yep, they are less then 15 feet from me, but they are outside the french doors where it is safe for 3 year twins to paint, or so I thought. Until our 5th grader suddenly hopped up swung the doors open and yelled at these two little rascals..."Stop you drinking that nasty paint water twins." Her angst was met with two sweet smiles followed by their favorite words: "why?"


This is what it looks like when you are trying to get your house ready to sell. We've lived out here for about 6 years and we have decided to move back into town. So when 7 people live in 1600 sq. feet you pack up everything you can live without (which is apparently a lot in our case) and put it in storage. But before it goes to storage it rests in our breakfast room.

  1. All the best on your move...
    Your twins are too cute!

  2. I really thought preparing to sell would be easier It's taken us almost 4 weeks and I think we have at least 2 weeks to go! Thank you we think they're pretty cute too :D!

  3. Hahaha!! Drinking paint water, oh yea, kids favorite past time. I guess painting is exhausting and thirst-enducing?!

    I'm itching to know what your take on rural/suburban vs city living is. We are suburban but think of going rural...and then think of going city. We will be a family of five in August and our 1000sq ft (including front porch) home is seeing a little small for this family. :) We do try to live simply, but I also prefer sanity over insanity..hehe!

    1. Our home is 1600 sq ft we have 7 people in it. I have a friend with 800 sq. feet and she has 6 folks in it. I am amazed how organized she is and how well she utilizes her space. We are getting ready to move back to town. For families with small kids if you think your kiddos are going ot have a lot of activities then live in town if you are going to be homebodies then you can live anywhere. I wish we could live on a large plot of land in the middle of town.

  4. ***That would be APRIL, lol, not August....time for some much needed sleep, obviously!


Thank you so much for your encouraging words!
