The General joined us for morning coffee. #professorfinn
It was a rough start to the morning. Kids overslept, chores weren’t done, breakfast still littered the counters. But we started school anyway with this prayer as our daily opening. It doesn’t mean the kids were immediately on board or even smiling, but I can feel a tiny shift in the air of the room when we ask God to shape our hearts. We are humbled, and we start anew.

13!!! He’s the baby I came nearest to losing, so every year we celebrate with him is a testament to the faithfulness and kindness of God. So grateful for the maturity and growth we see in our fine young man and excited to see what he conquers in the coming year!! #happybirthday
We did it!! Happy 13th, Adam!! (And thanks for keeping the Little’s, Gran and Pops!) (please enjoy Sam’s Superman pose! He was leaping out of the picture! 😂) @breakoutbham
We did it. It wasn’t the most graceful of First Days of School, in fact, it felt like one very long stumble, but we kicked it off, we’re in it now, and we shall persevere. 💪🏻🤪😳❤️#homeschool Year 10!
We graduated from preschool today. Our last baby got his first Bible and moved up to big kid church. He was super excited to have a new Bible. Grateful for his sweet teachers who loved him and taught him new stories. And who kept him stocked with suckers and Cheerios. @brookhillspreschool
It’s been a nature study, music listening, art pastel-ing kind of morning. A nice way to get all of us thinking about starting school soon!! 😭😬#campmorningtime Real life: my teens were less than thrilled. But they drew some cool thistles! 🤪
Today is my Grandaddy’s 95th birthday. He’s the baby of his siblings and I just love how he’s looking at my baby boy here. Never mind that my first-born and my middle child were photo bombing. 🙄So grateful for my Grandaddy’s influence and gentle love in our lives. Happy birthday, Great-daddy!! ❤️❤️
Everybody has their own style when it comes to summer popsicles. #professorfinn #whatwillawore #mirabringsthesanity
Wooster has been on a “honeymoon” of sorts, at my brother’s house being bred with another dog. After nearly four weeks, we were all thrilled to have him back. But nobody was happier than Madeline. She can’t get enough of nipping his ears, licking his head, and sniffing his...well, everything. #suspiciousgirlfriend 😂❤️
He’s home! He’s home!! #sunburnedbuthappy
She asked to “learn how to bake” this week. So we made brownies. Sharing the batter was the best part. ❤️
“As I plan our school, as we think through our family worship, as we ponder the affections, hobbies, and culture our children are absorbing, I keep asking myself: How will this serve them in the cave?” I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas about the poems, passages, or ideas you carry with you always. It’s like crowd-sourcing a catechism of “things we should always remember.” 😁Link to blog post in bio.
