The weekly ramble: where I blog like it’s 2004. Guess where we’ve been? Several of you suggested that we recreate our Eiffel Tower picture of long ago, so we did last week on our last day in Paris. We climbed to that second level observation deck with the kids and then shot out to the […]

Getting the Whole Grain Back to School

Poppy Seed Cakes

As the school year gets under way, I find my days much fuller than they were a month ago. Since I teach our six kids at home, I really have to hit the ground running. My days are full with lessons, chores, and writing projects. It can be extremely tempting to shrug off good nutrition […]
