The One Where We Get Away from the Snow and Go to Disney World

minnie

This post was supposed to be last week's List it Tuesday.  But, do you know what?  I was just way too exhausted from getting home from our trip to Disney World to even think about trying to process some pictures and get them ready to post. This week, however, I'm all set for the List it Tuesday where we enjoyed nine days in Disney World.  Let me just say though - if you have ever wondered … [Read more...]

Trips We’ve Taken Since We’ve Been Married

A kiss at Disney World

Family vacations weren't part of my experience as a kid.  I remember taking camping trips, a trip to the World's Fair in Knoxville in 1982, a one week long trip to Florida when I was in fifth grade and a trip here or there to see family in Minnesota.  Otherwise, I don't really remember doing much of that kind of thing.  Eric had a similar experience, except he has even less trips to add to his … [Read more...]

Five Things to Do with Unwanted or Outgrown Clothes

Five Things to Do with Unwanted or Outgrown Clothes

As seasons change, often so do styles and body sizes (at least for sure when you're living with kids).  So, at our house, we are often shocked when suddenly people are able to grab a whole pile's worth of clothes out of their closet of things that just don't work for them anymore. In fact, right before school started this fall, we found ourselves pulling almost all of Molly's clothes out of her … [Read more...]

Four Tips to Help Late Potty Trainers

Four Tips to Help Late Potty Trainers

With children ages nine through fourteen, we are (thankfully) far removed from potty training days.  There were days, however, when I thought I might never be done with diapers.  I'm sure that most parents have that feeling, but when you have a late potty trainer, it can feel even more like that. While Molly was potty trained at a more typical age, her brothers (one with Autism and another that … [Read more...]

List it Tuesday at Many Little Blessings and Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers

It's hard to believe it, but the year is starting to wrap up.  Just when I'm finally used to writing 2013, I'll be forced to scribble it out for a while and correct it to 2014.  Well, except of course the one day of the year when I always try to write 1976 as the year.  Birthdays make dates complicated, don't they? Today's List it Tuesday will be the last one until the first full week of … [Read more...]

Five of My Favorite Hair Products for Straight, But Not Actually Straight, Hair

Five Hair Care Products for Helping to Make Wavy Hair into Straight Hair

I have this hair secret.  I have lived my life like I have straight hair, save for a few unfortunate years with a perm in high school, but as I have gotten older, my hair isn't actually all that straight.  At no time did this seem more apparent to me than when I shared on Instagram what my hair looked like after we got caught in the pouring rain on Halloween and I let it just dry on its own … [Read more...]

One thing that we've been doing every year for the last several years is to take an opportunity one Tuesday (for List it Tuesday, formerly Top Ten Tuesday) in the late fall to share some of the video games that my kids recommend.  Not only do I enjoy that they are giving me help on a post, but they really look forward to sharing.  In fact, when I asked them for help with this post, Jack said, … [Read more...]
