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.

A Few Recent Moments

(from the last 2 weeks....playing catch up)

Enuh, was allowed into our presence, for the first time ever.
Enuh is Felicity's secret imaginary friend.  I knew about Enuh, because I'd walk in when Felicity was speaking to her.  I'd introduce myself to Enuh and tried to act normal, thinking that Lissy was keeping her imaginary friend a secret because we'd think it weird.  Still, Lissy kept Enuh to herself.  But on THIS day, Enuh came out to help Lissy sweep.

Kian shared his most FAVORITE book with Twoey.

Our new curriculum arrived!
It was SO sweet to watch the kids anxiously await the FedEx truck.  We knew which day it would arrive and waited ALL day.  Finally, it arrived at 5pm while we were outside playing.  We all went in to open this big box of beautiful books.  It felt like Christmas.

Logan can't wait to read this book, My Father's Dragon.

Kian likes the Childrens' Dictionary.

We are all excited to start schooling with this new curriculum.  I PRAY this excitement sticks as we enter the world of Sonlight and make it a part of our daily lives.  I LOVE the sound of this curriculum.....have loved the thought of it since Logan was 3.  Its very exciting to have it in our hands, and its thrilling to see how anxious the kids are.  I hope we find our niche with Sonlight.  We'd REALLY like to finally settle in to this thing called home school, and just enjoy our learning.


  1. Hope all goes well. Nice books! I would wait all day for fed ex too if I was getting a huge box of cool books! Can you tell me the name of the picture dictionary is? It looks so familiar, I think I may have had the same one as a kid. I bet mynlittle guy would like it too.

  2. Jenny...Exciting things afoot in your neck of the woods. I've never heard of that curriculum, though, my oldest is only in Kindergarten so I haven't been doing this very long:) But I wanted to share that I think it is so wonderful that your daughter has an imaginary friend. But perhaps, not all that imaginary? My (now 12 year old neice and goddaughter) had two "imaginary" friends, but mostly it was all about the one, Tuna. On and on my neice would go about Tuna. She came to visit her through a door in their cabinet against a wall. This was when my sister's family lived in a 100 year old home that was once a Chinese Laundry during the silver rush here. Tuna did not move with them when they left that house. I am not meaning to send chills up your spine, but I do believe their special little friends might just really be, well, real. Children are so open, afterall, and so present in the moment. I love that your daughter has a friend and she's inviting you to "see" her now. Oh, to be so honoured, but alas, my children have no such friends. Have a great weekend!

  3. How exciting!!
    I had 2 imaginary friends when I was little.. Bagadallion and Charlene. I used to cuckle them into the back seat of the car when we drove!

  4. That looks like so much fun - I don't know whether that is more fun for Mama or the children. I look forward to hearing your experience and how it comes I think in future years I probably won't continue long term with the Waldorf Curr. we have now. We use the pathway readers right now for reading.
    Yes, it does look like Christmas!
