The Stuff of Dreams……

by Edie Wadsworth on September 30, 2008

I’ve been tagged by Keli, so I’m supposed to share 7 things about myself and then tag 7 others.  I’m terrible at following rules and very technically challenged so forgive my ‘butcherin’  of this ‘taggin’ .   Without further adieu,  I give you 7 things from my dreams:  I start my dreamy day in ‘my’covered […]

Sunday grace……..

by Edie Wadsworth on September 29, 2008

There are so many things to love about this guy.   He’s rugged, funny,  smart,   loves football and fishing and good scotch,  can name nearly every tree in nature,  reads theology books,  can water ski and snow ski like a pro,  likes classical music and Pearl Jam,  and  occasionally loses his temper.   He’s […]


Midday Bookclub marches on………

by Edie Wadsworth on September 27, 2008

This group of women is smart,  talented,  inspiring,   and just plain fun to be around.   Thus,  if you like to read classical literature….. and like to learn and be challenged……and like to be surrounded by strong,  opinionated,  sweet ladies…..then you should join us.    And if we’re too far away for you,  then […]


Maiden Voyage……

by Edie Wadsworth on September 26, 2008

Dedicated to parents of teenagers with newly begotten drivers’ licenses: Dear Lord,  lead us towards those we are waiting for,  those who are waiting for us!May all our movements,  all their movements,  be guided by your Light….and transfigured by your joy.    Lonely and tired,  crushed by the separations…and sorrows of earth,  we feel the […]


Why we memorize…………

by Edie Wadsworth on September 25, 2008

The following excerpt is taken from a paper by Andrew Pudewa called “Linguistic Development through Poetry Memorization”.  This part of our homeschool day where we memorize poems, scripture, catechisms, etc.  is one of my favorites.   It simply amazes me how much kids excel at memory work.   I’ve included a video of my girls […]


Fall Decorating 101…….

by Edie Wadsworth on September 24, 2008

Start by baking some pumpkin bread (use your favorite pumpkin bread recipe) and then add one cup of butterscotch chips per loaf of bread.  It’s to die for….and then your house smells nice and ‘fall-like’ while you decorate……Recruit your small children to paint pumpkins for you using apples…..and flour sacks and plenty of creativity……Jazz up […]


“Emme,  come look at all the snacks,   you wanna some poptarts?”“You wanna play on the monkey bars?”meanwhile,  Caiti shows off her new pinkilicious running spikes and tells us how they make her run soooo much faster and feel soooo glamorous…..despite the fact that the girls are oblivious to the fact that people are actually […]

Dedicated to Jamie Knoxville- On my knees for ya!   The ‘Monday’ prayer from the Lutheran Prayer Book; Lord, in this morning hour I come boldly to Your throne of grace in full assurance that there I shall obtain mercy and find grace and help in time of trouble.  I need Your help and Your […]


Letting go……..

by Edie Wadsworth on September 22, 2008

So, the Dibbs (Taylor’s best friend Andrews’ parents) and Emme and I  take off to go see our boys perform near Johnson City yesterday.   As you might remember,  they won Battle of the Bands about a month ago and part of their “prize” was that they would get to open for Group One Crew, […]


Day of Reckoning……

by Edie Wadsworth on September 19, 2008

I woke this morning and knew today was gonna be the day.   I don’t want to do it…but it has to be done.   So,  I sheepishly, almost as if I was apologizing as I got on,  stepped on the scale. WHAAAAAAT?   How does this happen?   I haven’t gotten on in quite […]


What it means to be Lutheran…Part 1

by Edie Wadsworth on September 19, 2008

Raised as a very outspoken, dress-wearing independent Baptist, I grew up believing that  what determined how it is between God and me, depended on me. As long as I didn’t “drink, smoke, chew or run with boys that do”  and as long as I really focused on MY spirituality, MY quiet time with the Lord, […]


an eclectic shabby-chic Texan meets a cozy, cottage porch sittin’ Tennessean.  I love mixing old with new,  color with neutrals,  traditional with distressed and elegant with casual….kinda like wearing a beautiful black wrap dress with riding boots.   Maybe I just like being unpredictable. At any rate,  I follow the Nester’s recent advice pretty closely […]


A day at Logos School

by Edie Wadsworth on September 16, 2008

We continued to work on memorizing this……. We painted these…..We had P.E.–in the pool!We debated over whether to choose this…..or this for Taylor’s senior picture……(you can help us by voting 1 or 2)  I like 2 (below) better!We memorized this……(it’s part of our Bible/History catechism)and painted these…..and put the finishing touches on these adorable puppets…..and […]

Be very quiet.  I’m in the middle of covert operations the likes of which you haven’t seen since Jack Bauer took the Chinese consulate.    I was having a fine Sunday watching the Vikings get beat and reading “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”  when I came across this section in the book “To do justice, she had, […]


Friday Night with the Wadsworths…….

by Edie Wadsworth on September 13, 2008

You can call us ‘boring’ if you’d  like,  but here’s how our Friday night went down.  We made BLT’s and chocolate chip banana bread.…..yep,  you heard that right….and I’ll never make nor eat nor associate with banana bread again that does not have a generous amount of chocolate chips added.   This is a must-make.
