Dinner Talk

May 8, 2014


I was giving Spencer, Jordan’s youngest sister, a hard time at dinner tonight.  I grew up around sarcasm, and although I’ve learned to hold it back some, it’s still part of how I interact with my kids.  I should probably note that Spencer is 2, and although she’s a smarty pants, sarcasm isn’t really an […]

Jordan’s 5th Birthday

March 20, 2013


On March 14, 2013, Jordan turned 5.  But the party started early and lasted for about 2 weeks… The celebration began on March 2: Jordan got her ears pierced!  She had asked for our whole family to be at the mall with her, and afterwards we all celebrated with cookies from the bakery.

November 15, 2012


I am told that there is a lot of sickness going around our little town right now. So when the caller id showed “Van Buren Local” this morning, I was worried. And as suspected, it was that dreaded ‘come get your kid’ call. Jordan had already thrown up twice, & she was evidently freaking out, […]

Not Just Another Day at School

October 25, 2012


For the 1st time this school year, Jordan came off the bus excited to tell me about a new friend!  Her new friend & her both have names that start with “J” & had fun at Jordan’s favorite center, the pom pom table. I have been thanking God for answering another prayer & bringing this […]
