Lucky Enough

About a year and a half ago we moved to a beautiful mountain valley. We are surrounded by the Wasatch mountain range to the west, including Mount Timpanogos, and the Uintah mountain range to the east. On the local Facebook page someone wrote: “If you’re lucky enough to live in the mountains, you’re lucky enough.”…


The Other Three R’s

When I started homeschooling I wanted to make sure that I kept things simple and basic so that I would not get overwhelmed. In academics I knew I wanted to cover the three R’s (Reading, wRiting, and aRithmetic), but there were three other R’s that were important to me as well.…


Pseudo Passions

I’m not happy with my blog post today. It has way more questions than it does answers. It is just my raw, uncut worries at this point with no real conclusions.

Serving Mom

If there were such a thing as homeschool police, I could have been busted yesterday. My kids did little to no school work. They played outside all morning and then served mom in the afternoon.…


Another Side to Compassion

I’m in charge of a dinner and program tonight for 60 women. I was down all day Sunday with some kind of stomach bug. Yesterday, I got a text from a friend that said, “Hey, I know you’re not feeling awesome. Can I help you out tomorrow?” I thought about how to reply for at least three minutes.…
