Striving to encourage and to build up… as I chronicle our days.

Musings of a home educating momma of four who daily needs Grace. A hungry student of the Word. Thriving on green smoothies/juices, whole foods, thai food, good tea, conversations with my love and the occasional latte. Dreaming of the beach or a nice hike. Riding my bike. Kitchen inhabitant. Living the intentional life. Simple and un-conformed. Autodidact. Saved by Grace.

Give me a devourable book and a good cup and Iโ€™m happy.

    I missed the transition to the new blog! I have a ton of catching up to do now…

    BTW, thanks for stopping by my site. I lost a lot of people when I stopped being a food blog. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    LOL, I actually forgot the address of your blog, so never added it to my RSS reader! I’m glad you commented today — I added you to my Google Reader. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The picture on your blog header looks so much like the coastline here. Is this a place in the US?

    You have a lovely family.

    Thank you, Lindafay! It’s nice to see you here!

    Right here in Minnesota- the picture is actually of Lake Superior as I stand outside the historical Split Rock lighthouse.

    This is a beautiful blog! Where is your homeschool and how many years have you been a homeschooling family? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Salamat, Martine! We live in the US, in a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota. My oldest is 10 and we are on our 6th year of homeschooling.

    Thanks for the visit and hope to see you back!

    Thanks for all your work on the blog.

    I am part of a team at Base Camp Communications doing market research for PROBAR, a vegan energy bar company. We currently have 7 flavors.

    We are looking for bloggers to try free samples of PROBAR’s 4 new flavors soon to be out and to give us feedback prior to them hitting the stores.

    If you are interested send me your mailing address and we will have the samples shipped to you in the mail. (expected production on the samples will be in February) Once you get them there will be a way for you to share the samples with 3 close friends, fill out a feedback form on our website, and receive additional samples as well as exclusive discounted pricing on a case of bars (12 bars per case) if you like them.

    Of course if you blog about it (like them or not – we prefer honest blogging) that would be stellar too.

    Thanks for considering it.

    Thanks for the visit and the nice comment.

    Do you happen to have another blog? I clicked on your link, and it doesn’t look familiar at all…

    Hi, I just began homeschooling my third grader this year at her request. I would rather her go to Catholic school, but I don’t have the money for that right now. Your blog is inspirational-so thank you:)
    I’m probably going to add a homeschool blog to my blogs on wordpress so I can keep up with curriculum and dates of attendance on the web-easier in case paper files are lost.
    Thanks for sharing:)
    G-d bless!
