Where I’ve been

I realized I haven’t blogged in about 2 weeks. And this will be short. I am SWAMPED with school work! I have a huge paper due at the end of this week and have only had a week and a half to work on it, thanks to my teacher only letting us know of the … [Read more…]

On Dancing with my Sons

Turn up the music I love this song Hold me, hold me Bounce and sway Socks on linoleum Twirl and spin Hold on tight Again, again Laugh and coo Head on my shoulder Tender kiss The melody surrounds us And this moment lingers Like honey on the tongue

Why didn’t you say something?” Well, after sleeping in on Saturday morning (the boys were gracious and didn’t make … [Read more…]

Little Monkey (and other news!)

Micah and Benjamin have been getting really talkative lately. The latest super cute thing that Micah has been doing is making animal sounds. We have this little stuffed monkey that he pulled off his mobile. I say “What does the monkey say?” and then I say “Oooo, ahh, ahh ahh!” (oh the things you do … [Read more…]

LONG week

Well, I survived my Bibliography and Research intensive. It was actually a really good class and I SO enjoyed being back with my fellow English majors, as weird as we might be. We were able to have some great discussions about literature, language, the duty of a Christian critic, and the qualities of “good” writing. … [Read more…]

Back in my Element

I am back in school! I have officially started my M.A. in English yesterday. I am taking a research and bibliography intensive this week from 8am-4:30pm. It is so nice to be with my fellow English majors again. I have really enjoyed the discussion and literature. I really feel like I am back in my … [Read more…]
