We’re back, for real this time!

This past year has been filled with a houseful of kids (I watch my sister’s kids full time, as well), sewing my little heart out with my Little Dandelion Boutique business (which I am currently taking a hiatus from), building up another shop that I started with a friend, and homeschooling, on top of my regular mommy and wife duties…. It has been an absolutely fun and eventful year but also thoroughly exhausting. I am trying to scale back on a {Read More}

Fall Family Fun (we’re ALIVE!)

Well, apparently I have not written on my blog for almost 2 months.. How awful is that! I knew life was crazy and time was flying by, but I don’t think I realized just HOW fast, until I noticed the date of my last post. To say I’ve missed writing and sharing my photos with you all, would be a huge understatement. I started watching my sister’s kids during the week this summer and it continued into the school year, {Read More}

~ Springtime Adventures & Family Update ~

Hello there, long lost readers!! As you probably figured out, I took a bit of a hiatus the last month or so, due to homeschool ending, being outdoors in the gorgeous sunshine, and keeping up with my dress-making! About once a year, I like to take a little break from the blogging world because, well, it does get tiring sometimes, with all the scheduled posts and such, so it’s nice to get away for a little while and focus. It {Read More}

North Idaho Local Life: Prairie Home Farm Pumpkin Patch

The family who lives here opens their land to the public only in the {Read More}

Family Day at Walter’s Fruit Ranch in Green Bluff, WA

Fall is my favorite time of year. I just love when the weather cools off and we get to pull out the sweaters that have been shoved to the back of our drawers during summer. I absolutely love all the colors of fall, the trees always changing and then making a beautiful blanket on the ground. Everything about fall makes me warm, happy and sentimental. This is the time of year that I love doing those special, memory-creating activities with my {Read More}

Our 2014-15 Homeschool Schedule and Curriculum List

* This post contains affiliate links but no review items* In a little over one week, the boys and I will embark on our new adventure in homeschooling. We have some some ‘schooling’ at home before, when they were young, but nothing like this, so it really will be a new learning experience for us all. I am so excited to get started and the are, too, Cohen especially! Cohen (6 years old) will be in first grade and Eli (4.5 {Read More}

North Idaho Local Life :: Favorite family camping spot

Last weekend we went camping as a family of 5, for the first time. Yes, Natalie is 2 years old and we haven’t been camping together before this! How sad! I knew it was going to be so much fun, though, so we packed the car as full as we could (we felt like sardines!) and headed to the Breakwater camping area, in Cataldo, ID, because we were recommended there by a friend. We didn’t know what to expect..all we {Read More}
