Two Week Notice.

I quit. I quit my job. My keys are turned in and it's still not sunk in. I've worked since age 12, (that first job I sold nightcrawlers dug out of the manure pile to the local store. A dozen for $1) and sometimes as many as 5 jobs at a time. (I worked too... Continue Reading →

Claire is my youngest, the baby. It takes her a while to warm up and speak to you. I hope that she is courageous enough to ask for what she needs, and mannerly enough to ask nicely.

June finally

It's been a minute since I blogged. The entire month of May is crazy hectic and absolutely exhausting for me and Lynn both. But we've finally got a little room to breathe.

I thought I wanted boys

When we were thinking about children, I was confident we would have boys. I would be a better boy mom, right? Dirt is easier to deal with than drama. And then boys could help Lynn on the farm. And so I had it decided. Then we had girls. Pink, glittery, dramatic girls. Strong minded, strong... Continue Reading →
