Easter and a Birthday in the Little House

Our Lily was due on Easter Sunday, but she was born a few days early, on 4/5/06. This meant that this year, her birthday landed on Easter! She did not mind sharing her birthday with the holiday, in fact she was pretty thrilled about it. To make the day special for her, we let her… Continue reading Easter and a Birthday in the Little House

Spring is for the Birds

Last Spring, I was packing. Throwing stuff away, getting ready for a yard sale, and cleaning like a mad woman. (As much as I could with a toddler and 2 year old). There were no spring projects, crafts or decorations going on and it kind of drove me cuh-razy! This Spring, we're living in our travel… Continue reading Spring is for the Birds

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…

Mission: 40 Little Things

How much is a life worth, anyway? The cost of two grande caramel macchiatos? The cost of one large pizza? The cost of a happy meal? There are times when I have thought, "I wish I could give more, but what I have to give is so little. It wouldn't even make a dent in… Continue reading Mission: 40 Little Things

20/20 Vision

It's the strangest feeling--seeing things clearly for the first time. I've worn glasses since the second grade. I'll never forget the day I put them on. The world around me was completely overwhelming! I could suddenly see people's faces so vividly. I looked way up at the branches of the trees, which before had looked… Continue reading 20/20 Vision
