Captain’s log day 2,141

We stopped by the lake the other night. It has become a favorite thing to do lately in the evenings. The kids get some wiggles out, and we get the peacefulness of watching the sun set. The moon was crescent-shaped, which was interesting to Sylas. He knows all about that already. He truly has an […]

My Period Game-Changer

I started experimenting with alternative menstrual products two years ago. Though it has had its trials and errors, it has been so life-changing. I have better periods now than I have had my entire life. So I wanted to do a blog post about what I have found to work for me and things that […]

Capitain’s Log: Day 2078

We took the kids out to the park a couple days ago while the weather wasn’t too cold. they’ve been getting cabin fever, and with the Midwest weather – ever changing – it makes it hard to make plans to go outside. One day it will be nearly seventy degrees outside and then it will […]

The Gift of Life: Part One

Story time! I don’t know that I’ve ever mentioned this on my blog before. I was going to write one post about it, but soon realized that there was way too much back story for it to be in one single post. So I’ll be doing a series instead. Coming up on five years ago […]

Sickies

Our household has come down with a case of parainfluenza 1, aka croup. One of Sylas’ preschool friends decided to share it with him, and he has shared it with all of us as per cold season protocol. I think that Sylas and Ivan are on the mend, though still coughing and sleeping more than […]
