Finding Your Fit Without Having a Fit

On Thursdays, my kids ice skate with their homeschooling group.  They skate, while I chit-chat with other moms. Matthew is skating this year.  He’s still learning and moving slow so my olders (as I call my 3 older teens) take turns with him; skating him around the rink and cheering him on. Last week, I decided to get some exercise and skate with Matt.  Years … Continue reading

Book Give-Away {One Thousand Gifts}

I’m always looking for more books and great reads to plunk down on that ever-increasing pile next to my bed. I used to read only one book at a time.  I wouldn’t start another until I had finished the first one.  Then I discovered there’s way too many great books, genres and authors to read just one at … Continue reading
