Y’all ready? Because here we go… (Trying to summarize it all right here in one post. If it seems like a repeat, it’s not. Lots of good stuff – please read to the end.) We are in the process of bringing home a precious baby from China. Her name is Clementine, she has Down syndrome, […]

clementineupdate2

Sooo, I posted a few days ago about the guy’s version of the Found shirt. I was *so* excited about the design. I hoped to place the order quickly so that those who are already waiting on the re-print of the heart tee would have it in their hands asap. And I said that the […]

her heart

clementineupdate

Would y’all please keep Clementine in your prayers? Specifically her sweet little heart? We have learned that her heart condition is more serious than we had anticipated. And she will be undergoing heart surgery in China in the very near future. And that’s pretty much all we know, but our agency is doing all they […]

A week ago, Lula asked to play *dress up*. Which really is just Lula asking permission to rummage through her closet, pull 90% of the clothes off the hangers, and pick an outfit she deems to be a dress up kind of outfit. On this day, she chose a hot pink tutu and a t-shirt […]

I wasn’t prepared for the love you guys have showered on us, our baby Clementine and this Found shirt. Over $9000 in donations to help us bring her home. I underestimated you, and I am sorry. But in a very happy, crazy blessed way. So, there will be a re-print. Amazes me that I am […]

clementine joy – the rest of the story

clementine2

About six weeks ago I dropped a bit of a bomb on y’all. On my birthday, I published a post announcing our new daughter, Clementine Joy, and oh-my-goodness what fun it was. I admit, it was with a bit of trepidation that I announced our already large family was growing by one, but y’all responded […]

We went to the Lifeline family reunion yesterday at Veteran’s Park. And I brought my camera along. But, let’s just say, I ended up doing a whole lot more talking than picture taking. And I came home without a single shot. But the day wasn’t over yet. I was standing in the kitchen watching the […]

homeschooling: 2014-2015

homeschoolday1.1

I shared a post similar to this a little over a year ago, with all our curriculum choices for the year. And I posted a follow-up at the end of the year, with our thoughts on all of Dalton and Asher’s curriculum. (Thoughts on Isabelle’s 3rd grade curriculum choices is here.) Let’s just say, we […]
