After 5 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I found the wonder of mothering slowly starting to get crowded out by the mundane feeling. I realized our world seems to surround people with the negative, and complaining about blessings seems totally acceptable. So I decided to fight against that "normalcy" and focus only on the positive. I look back to my first year as a mom when everything was new and keeping house was fun and I aim to have that attitude again. This blog is my outlet to showcase the daily miracles that surround me in my blessed life as a stay-at-home mom so that I will never forget the wonder of it all.

Today Worked

We schooled with the bunnies...outside....a LONG distance away from the table.  :)

We all participated.

Felicity practiced cutting while Logan and I continued our discussions about Fall.

And then we put those discussions to a practical use and started our Fall compost pile.  Logan worked hard, didn't complain once, and after we were done sweeping up our driveway and walk, he ran off to sweep the neighbor's driveway and add their leaves to our pile.  He sifted out bits of plastic and other junk.  His work ethic made me proud. 
Oh, and this was just the start of our pile.  :)  Its much bigger now.

letting go...


  1. Jenny, I have to admit tears came to my eyes for you over this (and the last post, with Logan and his letters). It's working! Hugs!

  2. So glad things are looking up!
