He’s a black belt – again!

If you know us personally, you probably know Abe’s black belt story. He set a goal for himself to attain black belt status in Tae Kwon Do before his ninth birthday. Yes, I did say *ninth* birthday. Isn’t it funny how the oldest never seems little? Getting a black belt before nine seemed totally reasonable […]

My word for 2013

For several years I’ve seen posts around blogland by people who have chosen one word to live by or frame their new year. Every time I read about it I spend some time wondering what my word would be if I chose one. I could never come up with anything. Two days ago, as I […]

A walk around town

One of my big grand new year’s resolutions is to lose 25 pounds. To God be the glory, I’m not overweight right now, but only barely. I want to live comfortably within the “normal” weight range instead of teetering on the high end of it. My plan is to run three times a week, do […]

Homeschooling with littles

Oh boy are my two youngest high energy and high maintenance kids! They definitely keep things hoppin’ in the Bailey homeschool! I get asked a lot how in the world I can homeschool at all with a 3 year old and a 20 month old running around. In some seasons it’s been very hard. Newborn […]

Life is just getting in the way

2011 is the year to blog!

I have so many resolutions for 2011 flying around in my head! I’ve never really been one to take resolutions seriously. Sometimes I would make them. They usually looked about the same: Lose weight Get more serious about morning devotional Read through the Bible in a year Pay off debt Seriously, I said those things […]

The main thing

It’s absolutely crazy at my house right now. We’re having a hard time finding a new “normal” since Jesse’s arrival. Schedules are totally out the window. A good friend of mine told me recently to keep the main thing the main thing. Hmm. I’ve pondered on that quite a lot. The obvious “main thing” is […]

New posts coming soon

A new school year, 2 birthdays with another right around the corner, visits from godparents, etc. So tune in again tomorrow for […]

Happy 4th of July!!!
