The year started out very promising. My girls and I spent New Year's Eve with friends and savored the moments as the clock turned to midnight. I started a photography project which brought me out of the doldrums. We met... Continue reading

Each year, I choose a word to focus on instead of a New Year's resolution. This year I chose the word PERSPECTIVE. Why? Well, I realized this past year that people's reaction to things were colored by their perspective. This... Continue reading

Last weekend, we had our opening night of Nutcracker. This year was an especially difficult one as we lost our beloved ballet instructor, Renee "Sissie" Gillenwater to cancer. Her death was quite unexpected as we did not know her cancer... Continue reading

This is my son. He is a huge football fan and can talk for hours about the NFL down to the minute on a play in any given game. He has trouble sleeping if I am not home. He loves... Continue reading

My youngest just moved into Ballet II. This level requires ribbons on ballet flats. I know there are several newbies so I decided to help them out. First cut the ribbon if it's one long piece. Put the ribbon right... Continue reading

The book looks wonderful. I can't wait go take a look at it. Payday is in a few days so I'll grab it then. I can't wait to see the dresses all made. I'm gearing up for Nutcracker. :)

Pumpkin has been wanting to play soccer but I just couldn't imagine fitting that into our schedule. So, we compromised. I told her she could participate in the Challenger British Soccer Camp. This camp was so well run. It was... Continue reading

In Korea, the child (when she can) provides the soup (it's iron rich and helps with breastfeeding as well) you're fed after childbirth on said child's birthday to the mother. The birthday kid gets it too. It's a symbol of birth. Happy birthday, sweet baby. :)

Congratulations!!! That smocked dress is just beautiful, but pales in comparison to the glowing First Communicant.

I know this is late, but for the future, use a stabilizer underneath the knit fabric. This will prevent the knit fabric from stretching while sewing. Use a very strong needle and have at it. :)

We did a garage sale. It was very, very hard emotionally. I looked at these as treasures while everyone wanted to hardly pay anything for them. So, I'd suggest either donating or a resale shop. OR have your husband do the garage sale while you spend that time away. It's better.

We should learn together. Emily S. taught me years ago, but I've forgotten. I have a borrowed pleater. I should bring it up and we'll do it together.

Many hugs, my dear. My children are independent learners. Not necessarily by design, but it works for us. We tend to be more unschooly. All my girls taught themselves to read. I think you have a good balance. As Lissa always says, we have our high and low tides. I am definitely planning a trip up there to see y'all.
