I love dogs. I grew up with dogs. I have dog sat numerous dogs in my adult life, even when I already had kids, from young and energetic Weimaraners to geriatric mini Dachshunds. Before I ever owned a dog of my own, I watched many many dog training videos on YouTube. I read several dog Carry on!
How to update your older kitchen-with no technical DIY skill or knowledge!
Potty Training my Sixth Kid One would think I would be an expert in all things child, since I do have children ranging in age from 13-2. I’ve got boys and girls. I’ve got all the personalities (Ok, maybe not, since there are 16 main personalities, but it feels like it most days!) I’ve got Carry on!
Oh. My. Gracious. This was one of those days PRIME for Mama Meltdown. Cadrian pester pester pestering to walk across the field to meet up with the combine (child doesn’t realize he’s only four). Finally after all the no’s, and he still won’t stop arguing, I tell him he doesn’t get to go at all. Carry on!
We’ve all had it for about a week now. Denton despite the green goo oozing now and then from his eyes and nose, is a happy little totter-er. He insists on walking a few steps when he first lets go of whatever he’s holding on to and then plops to his bummie. He holds his Carry on!
We have been busy– –squeezing every moment of enjoyment from life––emotionally distraught– –all at the same time– Last Monday we visited my cousin a few hours away and spent the night with them.

Last night, Brielle and I made the most delicious cake in the world. It’s called Mocha Layer Cake. It’s about the only kind of chocolate cake I can honestly say I love. I love chocolate, but generally, I don’t like chocolate cake or chocolate ice cream. I know, I’m an odd duck. Anyway. The cake Carry on!
I started off Monday by getting up early. If you know me at all, you know this is akin to Fat Albert doing the Iron Man. After I nursed Cadrian, I got up spent time with God, blogged, went outside wrapped in a quilt and prayed in an Adirondack chair while I watched a magnificent Carry on!
After story hour on Friday, we decided to go play in the Reading Garden. The Reading Garden is a tranquil stone seating area surrounded by evergreens and butterfly bushes, coneflowers, black-eyed Susans, and tall prairie grasses. My friend and I settled in for a nice chat while our children picked up pine cones and played Carry on!
