I’m fanatical about words.      I DO believe that it’s my favorite way to make my space my own.   That’s probably why I like chalk boards so much. Then there’s  song lyrics.   I’m giddy like a school girl for poetic, passionate lyrics. Whiiiich probably explains my love for poetry.    And books.   […]

Chicken and Dumplings

by Edie Wadsworth on September 24, 2010

I thought you might like to try this recipe, which is perfect for fall. But first, an update or two. 1. I took my computer to the Apple Genius Bar last week. I have a MacBookPro and it is broken (physically) from possibly overextending it when it’s open and as a result, it won’t close. […]

What homeschooling has taught me about myself

On Brett Favre and other things I love……

by Edie Wadsworth on September 9, 2010

1. I’m taking my cues from Jessica. I love so many things about her but it’s our mutual love for Brett Favre and the Vikings that warms my heart the most. I wrote on her blog today “I could almost resort to hanging a poster-sized copy of this on my bedroom wall.” I’m one of […]

“Hold On”

by Edie Wadsworth on September 7, 2010

someday i will look back at this precious gift. and this is what i will remember. her clinging—-arms tight around the neck— while we read, while we memorize, while we learn. and my selfish longing that she would stay in her seat and be diligent. has melted to this. as the heart melts into repentance.
