Posted by Jennifer under Parenting, Teaching Tots (No Respond)

In the spring Chloe asked about having a bake sale. Of course the summer whizzed past and we were into fall. She asked again, and we made the plans. Chloe (6) was going to handle the bake sale side of things and John (5) was going to man an ice tea station. We would put […]

9.ONE FIVE.13

Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Just Life, Parenting, Toolbox (1 Respond)

9.15.13 It’s Sunday; God’s day, a beautiful day. And the beauty of it has nothing to do with the weather, though it’s actually a nice crisp fall day. Life is so full of blessings and my heart is full of thankfulness. These three; oh how they fill me with thankfulness, delight and joy. They also […]

Tiny Tidbits 8.13

Posted by Jennifer under Just Life, Parenting (1 Respond)

*John and Chloe were invited as guests to a Vacation Bible School. John and Chloe were in separate classes, which hardly happens since they are only 1 grade apart and then, since they are both younger than their friends, they weren’t even in their friends classes.

Posted by Jennifer under Just Life, Parenting (1 Respond)

Making Whoopie Pies

Posted by Jennifer under Just Life, Keeper of Home, Parenting, Recipe Box (No Respond)

My tots love baking. Mommy The tots love to eat said baking. Isaac is particularly in love with watching the mixer spin around and around. Baking with littles is fun, time-consuming and messy. It’s also worth it. {did I mention it was messy?} Side note: The messy kitchen? That wasn’t actually from the Whoopie Pie […]

A Real Play Date and Emotional Cups

Posted by Jennifer under Just Life, Parenting, Teaching Tots (1 Respond)

It’s been a few weeks since I had the opportunity to go to the Mom Heart Conference. I’m still processing, working through and implementing the things I heard and learned. I’m a slow processor. Something that I came home from the conference mulling over was about my ‘children’s emotional cup’. Now let me start by […]
