Thanks for stopping by! We were a family of three, until we added one more (cat, that is), making us a family of four. In 2012, we added four more...one husband, two girls, and a dog. We have a full plate as a party of eight!
Adoption, blended families, pets, school, running...it's all here. Pull up a chair and read a while. After you do, please leave a little comment love! It makes me happy...and y'all know...if Momma is happy, then everyone is happy...at least at our house!

A Writing Assignment
Gloria is "teaching" her "class" right now. It cracks me up to listen to sometimes. It's also quite insightful as to what is going on in her classroom at school. She just finished reading them a story..."One Surprising Night" about Jesus being born. Now it is writing time. For those of you who are familiar with Lucy C*lkins and writing workshop, you would hear lots of things that you have used in your class. Obviously she pays attention during the mini-lessons at school! Anyway...she has just asked her students to do a literature response with the question "Girls, would you like to have been Mary and why or why not? And boys, you can think about being Joseph. Would you like to have been Joseph." She is modeling how to begin a response. Don't yet know what her answer is. Guess I'll have to wait and see!
