Congratulations to you both!



My oldest is graduating from high school this week & I will probably borrow your "Good luck, well done & I cannot wait to see what you do next." line. But I'll probably have to write in her card because just THINKING about saying those (very, very true) words to her makes my eyes water. So proud & excited for her, because this is what we have been raising her to do for the last 18.5 years, but how can she just up & move to college? Isn't she still a toddler, or 6 year old?

What made you decide not to homeschool Sophia?


My oldest graduated a few weeks ago from high school. Him being gone away at college this fall freaks me out. The whole family dynamic will change when it's just his three younger sisters left at home. I'm not sure who is going to have the hardest time adjusting, they all adore him & are so close. I'm practicing not crying, if being in denial counts toward that lol

hope your summer has been a good one so far. We are hungry for updates from you!

So excited for YOU going back to school yourself. Have you already gotten classes lined up?

  • I discovered a long time ago that writing of the small things of the day, the trivial matters of the heart, the inconsequential but near things of this living, was the only kind of creative work which I could accomplish with any sincerity or grace. - E.B. White

  • I felt that I was packaging something as delicately pervasive as smoke, one box after another, in that room, where my only duty was to describe reality as it had come to me – to give the mundane its beautiful due. -John Updike
