I’m so sorry

I'm sorry. I didn't really get it until today. Never have I understood the depth of hatred that some people have. Today I was reading blogs on WordPress and I did something I don't often do and that was search a topic and start reading. I searched teenagers. Mostly because they have been on my...

My new love

Bet you thought this is about a new foster love! Nope. My new love this week is quinoa! I've never liked quinoa before but this week we have found two amazing recipes and I don't want to forget them. If you don't know what to do with this super seed, don't worry. It's easy. Just... Continue Reading →

English Hot Tub Buddies

So the last few days one of my best girl friends, Jen, (who has lots of English heritage) has been inundated with photos, people and stories from the Netherlands (which is my heritage).   She has sent me a few texts talking about when we last went to Holland and visited the Keukenhof and Harlingen....

Counting Joy

Sometimes I feel like I want to jump for joy.    Have you stopped and let the good things in life excite you lately?   Today has been one joy filled moment after another. Here's my list of things that... Continue Reading →

2 MEAL MAGIC

Don't worry this article isn't about left overs!   Most of my family refuse to eat leftovers. I haven't written a lot lately as I have truly been very busy.   We took in a 15 year old into our family at the beginning of the summer and for all of you who foster, you know how... Continue Reading →

Finding Peace

This is my view tonight. As I lay here in the pool, the word peace came to mind.  I was overwhelmed by how calm I felt and how peaceful it is.   After 8pm, after the 3 littles are in bed, after the teens are all organized with their evening plans.   Quiet.  Peaceful. Got... Continue Reading →

Summer Clean Challenge

Cleaning? I would rather be at the beach or at least cleaning the pool! I love a clean house and I do need to clean when I'm upset but cleaning isn't usually on the top of my summer fun list.   I'm pretty sure it's not on anyone's summer fun list. The problem is....  ... Continue Reading →

Feeding 12 tonight!

I don't write about food.   I'm definitely not a food blogger by any means but once in a while I post yummy meals that my kids love on Facebook and people are always asking for recipes. BBQ chicken pizza is our kids favourite.   As I made it tonight I knew that this is one of... Continue Reading →

Daddy Protect Yourself

The other day, I chatted with a brand new foster Momma. They are about to take in a teen girl.   First placement.   Brave you say?   I say trusting.   They are trusting the strength of their family and community to make it work.   They trust their skills as parents.   They... Continue Reading →
