When I started working toward my goals in January of 2017, I originally set out to finish 12 books in a 12 month period. And, due to struggling to accomplish this in previous years, I was worried that I might not be able to cross this one off my list when it was all… Continue reading How I Read 40+ Books in 2017 || PLUS My Top Picks
Upon returning home from my trip to Uganda recently, I knew that I needed to make some changes in the way we do things in our home. The trip affected me SO greatly in SO many ways. And I want to be able to truly mean it when I tell people that it was “life-changing”.… Continue reading Is “Zero” Food Waste Possible???
Fact #1: I have four children….four constantly growing and changing bodies to dress (not counting my own). Fact #2: I also live on a budget.

If you’ve been following our journey for any length of time, you are more than likely aware that we are working hard at paying off debt and becoming one of the Elite…..well, to me they are the Elite. They are the ones who can claim “We are debt free. We owe no man.” But this… Continue reading 4 Things I No Longer Buy
Ahhhhh, the smell of pencil shavings in the morning. One of the highlights to the start of every homeschool year is the organizing and decorating of the classroom…….or maybe I’m the only one who feels that way. 😉 I promised all of you back during the summer that I would be share a homeschool room… Continue reading 2017-2018 Homeschool Room Tour
