Project Pillow

by Edie Wadsworth on August 31, 2010

So, remember I told you about my Home Ec class over at the Freckled Nest?  Well, I’m just loving it.   I haven’t made every single project but I’ve made most of them. This is by far my favorite. {And I know that pesky thread is driving you crazy.   Don’t you just want to […]

Lake Cottage Kitchen :: Before and Afters

by Edie Wadsworth on August 28, 2010

~~~a few sources have been added to the bottom of this post~~~ It’s almost ridiculous how long it’s taken me to get this kitchen post done. But in my defense, my light fixtures were just installed this week. They apparently sat in the Atlantic Ocean for 2 months waiting to get through customs. And sadly, […]

My friend Julie

by Edie Wadsworth on August 26, 2010

I was so blessed about a year ago to reconnect with Julie through blog world. Her father was my youth pastor for several years when I was a youngster and made a dramatic impact on my life. I have such fond memories of their family and visiting her house the other day was like a […]

Daily Homeschool Schedule {Getting It All Done}

by Edie Wadsworth on August 24, 2010

This has become one of the most frequently asked questions about our homeschool.   How do we fit it all into a day?   And still sleep and eat and relax. And I remember those early days when I was researching homeschooling.    I wanted to know every detail.  I poured over Susan Wise Bauer’s […]

Recipe for Vegetable Soup

by Edie Wadsworth on August 21, 2010

We’re enjoying a lazy Saturday, drinking the leftovers of the sangria I made for yesterdays’ brunch and enjoying pics from the last two weeks. I also thought I’d post the recipe for my Late Summer Vegetable Soup, in case, like me, you have a sackful of the last of the summers’ almost-too-ripe veggies that need […]

Lutheran Prayer Book Winners!

by Edie Wadsworth on August 19, 2010

I know, this picture makes you wish I was giving away Anthropologie bowls.   They are so darn cute, aren’t they? Anyhoo, back to the my girls and their math skillz. They lost steam and the ability to count by eights after 96, which is when I took over. But this was fun for us […]

Talking to God

by Edie Wadsworth on August 17, 2010

I’m so thankful to be off to such a wonderful start so far this year in our school-at-home.   I’m feeling a little more organized and relaxed, the girls are much more content and willing to work. And there’s just so much great stuff to learn. I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I thought […]

Queen Chair Before/After and a Fair Little Brunch

by Edie Wadsworth on August 14, 2010

I’ve been wanting to re-upholster this chair since I first bought it on clearance at T.J.Maxx. There was a rip in the upholstery which I disguised for 5 years with a throw. Finally, I painted it (a bright yellow from Valspar, whose name I’ve currently forgotten) and sent it to be recovered with a darling […]

What do you do when your mom is a dork?

by Edie Wadsworth on August 12, 2010

You take a video of her, of course. The girls are memorizing the books of the Old Testament. I happen to have been a first prize Bible drill winner and highly impressed their young strong minds with my mad skillz. Forgive the lack of makeup, the dishoveled left overs of yesterdays’ hair style and the […]

Christ Have Mercy

by Edie Wadsworth on August 6, 2010

jk

Our Father in heaven is merciful. By His good grace,  Jamie came to visit us here in Tennessee  and to check on her dying father.    He’s been in a miserable condition for quite some time and has nearly begged to die.  His children have watched him lose his dignity and even his very will […]
