I started a new job recently. It’s not great. Not glamourous. It is physical but that’s okay. Most of the work I’ve done is physical/manual labor and those types of jobs love me and like to keep me so I guess this is nice and convenient. We have since moved on from home-schooling to vacationContinue reading “Small (Very Tiny) Talk”
This new week brings us to the end of another school year. The Oppressed, The Boy, and The Gaggle welcome the end of another year in elementary school and high school and the added challenges brought upon by home schooling in this gauntlet they call “Coronapalooza”. God willing, the little Miracles of Christ will returnContinue reading “School’s out. Now, get out.”
Our adventures in parenting include taking care of our own children, children in our neighborhood, and some foster children. Our record of biological/foster combo is five. With the recent addition of a child from our street coming over for the day while her parents go to work, we now have a new record of six.Continue reading “Home-fooling Around”

How are things at home? Here’s a little insight into our life.
Cleanliness is next to godliness. My children being clean are miracles of God. There are certain things the children here need to do. More often than not, whatever the task, I tell them the same thing: This can take 10 minutes or it can take three hours. Luckily, my children’s showers don’t take three hours.Continue reading “Water Torture”
I find myself repeating certain things to the little Miracles of Christ. It doesn’t matter what time of day it is or what they are doing. It seems different situations or actions bring out the same responses. It doesn’t matter which one is doing it or where we are. I want to share a sampleContinue reading “Favorite Sayings”
One of my favorite places to visit is Plymouth. Wife and I went there on a spur of the moment when we started dating. It’s still one of our favorite places to go and spend a day or two. Our itinerary has changed since we’ve been blessed with the little Miracles of Christ. It’s beenContinue reading “Dinner at Plymouth”
I try to help out children whenever I can. However, there are times when I feel it is necessary for one to put on their big boy/girl pants from time to time and figure things out for themselves. I can point them in the right direction but ultimately they need to do the work themselves.Continue reading “ˈdic-TIo-ˌna-ry”
