Grace in Small Things – 228

5 little things that make me happy So… it’s November.  Already. 1.  A walk, on a perfectly crisp fall day, with a friend I don’t get to see often enough. 2.  Bright yellow leaves on a clear blue sky. 3.  Zoe’s day by day improvement with her violin.  (She was invited to be in the […]

Books I’ve Read (October 2015)

I’ve gotten “stuck” on a box set of romances that I just can’t move on from.  It’s really put me embarrassingly behind on the book reviews that I have (over)due for the book tour groups I’m a part of.  I’m surprised they haven’t kicked me out.  There are seriously about a dozen other books I […]

Sometimes I wonder what the teachers think of us…

I was looking through the pile of papers that Zoe & Ana took out of their homework folders this afternoon.  They bring all of these random things home, mostly on Fridays, and Sunday night they empty out.  As they get older, there are less and less things I feel the need to save.  Lots of […]

It’s definitely Autumn… but it’s not too late to visit Jenkinson’s!

As a Jenkinson’s Ambassador I was provided with a voucher for my visit.  All opinions expressed are my own. A few weeks ago, we had a Monday off from school. I took advantage of the amazing still-summer weather and grabbed the girls and a couple of their friends, and hopped in the car for a […]

Books I’ve Read (September 2015)

My book reading has definitely slowed down in the last months.  On 6 this month (and one was a children’s book).  My book calendar is FULL for the next month though… so I guess we should take bets now on how far behind I’m going to get? Have you read anything worth noting lately?  Have […]

Grace in Small Things – 227

5 little things that make me happy I haven’t done a GiST post since April.  Really…. I haven’t done much blogging at all since April.  At least… not like I used to.  (And REALLY not like I used to when I started).  I just seem to be saying everything other places.  (Seriously… Facebook killed my […]

Mindprint Learning can help you understand how your child learns best.

I recently had the opportunity to try out Mindprint Learning with Zoe.  I was provided with a 1 year subscription, so that I could try out the service in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own. Mindprint Learning was started by a married couple (Nancy & Eric Weinstein) who wanted know more […]

Touch Coffee and Beverages (giveaway)

I was recently offered the opportunity to try out a new Touch Coffee & Beverages brewer.  I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to try a new machine… but we had recently just gotten another new brewer.  So… I decided to pass on the coffee love to my Sister-in-Law, Erica. While the type […]

Let’s get the ball rolling on laundry…

*I was provided with a Downy Ball in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own. Laundry?  It’s not my favorite thing.  Although I DO love freshly folded laundry from the dryer.  I just wish there was some magic button… or that I had a robot (like Rosie on The Jetsons) to perfectly […]
