Home Is…

Recently, on Instagram, I saw a hashtag game called “Move it Up Monday”, where you are supposed to find an old photo of a pretty spot in your house and repost it to inspire others in their home decor. I thought that sounded like fun, but as I searched through my photos, I realized I… Continue reading Home Is…

Memorial Day in the Little House

Today we celebrated Memorial Day in a nice little RV park in South Dakota. It was a little chilly and windy, but warm enough to play baseball outside with the neighbor kids and grill some brats for a Jarvis-style cookout.   "Jarvis-style" means simple. Meat. A couple of easy sides. And a fun dessert. Lily and… Continue reading Memorial Day in the Little House

“Here’s a Story…”

(You will laugh when you figure out why I gave that title to this post. Maybe. Or you might roll your eyes. But I laughed.) Would you like to hear a neat story?

Ticks & Stink Bugs & Ants…

...Oh. My. When we were still praying about whether or not to go to Honduras, one of my biggest concerns was the tropical "wildlife". As in bugs. Spiders. Snakes. And these creepy looking creatures. Because God has a unique sense of humor, we suddenly began getting many strange visitors in our not-so-tropical midwestern home. One morning, I walked… Continue reading Ticks & Stink Bugs & Ants…
