Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri


The Idiosyncrasies of Eva

She's unusual.  But, most 5 year-olds are.  I already mentioned how she carries "stuff" around all day.  At bedtime there are toys all around her, in her pillowcase, and hanging from Ivy's top bunk.  She likes little gadgets.  She saved a rock once just because it was "smooth".  The other day the girls were outside, and I spied this peeking out of Eva's pocket:

a rock, and a red sharpie, which she is not allowed to have.  In her hand, she carried an old checkbook cover her dad gave her.  She makes me laugh.  She always has some sort of adventure going on.

A girl with a long stick can be anything she wants to be.  So can a girl with a backpack.

When we first moved to this house 10 years ago, this weeping willow was too small for Jordan to play under.  But, now, it becomes a fancy castle when you add a few chairs and blankets and a dog.

Eva's first word she spoke was "bug".  When we came home from China our ceiling was covered in ladybugs...hundreds of them.  She later was terrified of bugs or anything looking like a bug.  I tried putting a worm in her hand once and she screamed.  She was even scared of frayed rope.  So, when she started bringing me "bugs", I thought, "that's my girl!".  I loved bugs and worms when I was little.  The other 2 girls would never have brought me these:

And just because Moxie goes everywhere the girls and Jack go, here is our 11 month old puppy.  Jack has trained her well...loving the soccer ball.

4 kind words:


This post makes me miss living on the farm! My oldest dd is afraid of bugs - Piper brought me several "widening" bugs last night and giggled how they climbed around her hands.


Eva sounds a lot like Jadon...little gadgets in his pockets, tons of stuff in his bed, etc. He even has his lower bunk transformed into a two section hide-out at the moment. He sleeps on about 1/4 of the space (except that is, when he decides to sleep on the floor--just because he likes it).

Eva sounds like so much fun!

Serving the King

Good night girl! Is Moxie full grown yet?! I will pray for you....and your kitchen. :)


A weeping willow tree, I'm digging that. The bugs? Not so much. I saw enough of them at summer camp every summer. Really, that was enough for me. I don't mind them, but we're not best friends. ;)
