From Instagram: One last trip to the beach. We spent the first half of this past week at a Classical Conversations practicum in Boynton Beach, Florida, and the south Florida communities were so kind and welcoming. As we talk about moving to a new area within a couple of years, it gave me hope for being able to connect…

From Instagram: Learning about loggerhead rescue and rehabilitation {and melting in the heat!}. Well, I had the best intentions of getting back to my regular blogging schedule this week...and then the baby got roseola. After a few days of fever and fussiness, I was just too far behind to make it happen. But it IS coming (with…

From Instagram: {Most of} my people. After a whirlwind few months, we packed up the car the first week of May, making the 18-hour drive to my parents' new house in Florida. Although we usually drive straight through, we decided to stop halfway and stay in a KOA cabin, which made the trip much more bearable with…

From Instagram: This is my reality, y'all: Sean's been gone for two days, the babies are sick and barely slept last night, it's rainy and depressing, the 2yo gave up naps today, I have been sitting at my computer for 5 days straight (I'm pretty sure it's grown into my lap at this point!), I…

From Instagram:First family ice cream date of 2016. This weekend I'm in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains at Winsome, where I'm speaking about moving from perfectionism and fear to authenticity and freedom in our relationships with one another, ourselves, and Christ. I'm not sure if the recordings will be available publicly, but if they are and…

From Instagram: Baby toes. Baby boy and I ended up in Florida this week for a memorial for my uncle. It was good to leave the bitter cold behind and enjoy the sunshine state for a few days, and it was great to see family. I had every intention of posting like normal, but traveling…

From Instagram: Sixteen years ago, Sean and I came to Blue Knob for a day of skiing and I sat down on the first green trail and refused to go any further until he piggybacked me all the way down {dare devil I am not, and it was only my third or fourth time skiing}. This…

From Instagram:We did it! Skiing all day yesterday and we still managed to get packed and out the door {of a semi-clean house} for CC this afternoon and then the drive to NC afterward. {With six kids, one dog and two fish!} My parents are moving back to Florida next week, and while we're super…

From Instagram: If you need me, I'm just hanging out in bed in my pajamas with this baby boy, my laptop and some echinacea tea. After 2.5 weeks of being coughed and sneezed on, my body has waived the white flag, and it's my turn to be miserably sick. UGH! This week included a day…

From Instagram: Hey there, McFatty! It has been a week, y'all—poor Jackson had a nasty upper respiratory virus that turned into a raging double ear infection, and there were several days when Sean and I were both running on fumes. We're also dealing with a few medical issues with Lucas {more on those in another post}, and while…
