So God Made A Farmer

  From the window, we saw farmers out back plowing and planting a big garden. They were older men. 2 of the 3 used walkers outside the plot, and there was a wheelchair on the sidelines for when it got to be too much for somebody. They had a few helpers, but they did the hardest work themselves. … Read moreSo God Made A Farmer

Teacher Gifts for the End of the School Year

Help teachers refuel at the end of the year with a gas station gift card, coffee gift card and chocolate!

Oh great, another thing to do at the end of the school year, believe me I know. But it’s so important to take care of the people that take care of our kids. Childcare in any form is such a hard job, and we were so blessed with great teachers this year. We also have an excellent bus driver … Read moreTeacher Gifts for the End of the School Year

Living Out My Journey-By Rediscovering Myself

“Anytime I start to feel the mommy guilt that comes with taking time for myself I think: Would I rather have my kids see me feeling like I’m stuck at home and feeling bad about myself and grouchy… or would I rather have them see me having fun and enjoying my own life, as I … Read moreLiving Out My Journey-By Rediscovering Myself

Moms’ Night Out

I take notes like crazy. I keep a notebook in my purse and I’ve taken notes on the back of junk mail envelopes and church programs. I just hear so many things that strike me and I want to remember them. I love to go back through my notes to have those a-ha moments all … Read moreMoms’ Night Out

The Perfect Field Trip Lunch

And by perfect, I mean perfect for us. Perfect because they’re foods the critter and I agree on for a packed lunch. And perfect because everything can be thrown away and we don’t have to keep track of a lunch box or ice pack. At first, it was hard for me to come up with an … Read moreThe Perfect Field Trip Lunch

In The Event You Think My Life Is Perfect

Messy house dishes pictures. In the Event You Think My Life is Perfect via Real Honest Mom blog

I’ve written about this topic before but I think the message bears repeating. I see comments all the time about how people only show the perfect side of life on social media. I do agree with the sentiment, but I am probably guilty of it too. So in the event you think my life is perfect: This is … Read moreIn The Event You Think My Life Is Perfect

Mentor Mom Advice

I don’t have family here, and that is so hard in the thick of raising little ones. After I left my job, I knew that I needed a support system to help me through the hard days. I found the Mom to Mom group at my church, and I have never looked back! I am so … Read moreMentor Mom Advice

Getting A Haircut

This qualifies as an adventure? Why yes, yes it does. I don’t even remember the last time I went to a salon to get a haircut. I don’t even remember where I went when I did. I’ve been trimming it up at home for so long I just kind of forgot salons existed. It has … Read moreGetting A Haircut

Taking A Painting Class

As part of my campaign to get out of the house and live a little, I decided to take a painting class. I used to love art in high school and I was good at it, but that was more than 20 years ago. I thought I would try to revisit an old passion and … Read moreTaking A Painting Class

I’m Going To Let Go, Jack. I’m Going To Let Go.

Titanic is one of my favorite movies. I remember waiting in line at Blockbuster way back when, excited to buy my two-tape VHS copy of the movie when it first came out. Needless to say, times have changed. It’s not a favorite because of the sappy love story, though I was certainly a fan at the … Read moreI’m Going To Let Go, Jack. I’m Going To Let Go.
