August 2011

Do you have any idea how tired my girls are of being toted to the job site? And how they hang on my arms and say five hundred times, “Wheeeen are weeee leeeeaaaving?” But last night, for some reason, they entertained themselves and pretended like the house was a castle.   And they ran and […]


Project Restoration:: The Anatomy of a Baluster

by Edie Wadsworth on August 19, 2011


This week we’ve turned a corner in the building project. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I think it’s the hardwood that makes it feel like home. We love the light floors.   White oak, unstained, random width. We also got our porch railings and the outdoor fireplace framed […]

Taylor and Caiti were home this weekend for the Verity’s last concert and we had one of our old favorites—cheese tortellini soup.   I think my friend Sue first made it for me and then I just took the idea and figured it out for my family.    My finicky nieces even love it.  (Right, […]

Goodbye and God Bless::The Verity’s Last Show

by Edie Wadsworth on August 12, 2011

My son Taylor, who is now 21 and entering his 3rd year of college has been the singer/songwriter for the band The Verity for the past few years. This band has defined him in many  ways and has given us all a host of precious memories. I miss the sound of his guitar in my […]


From Vacation

by Edie Wadsworth on August 11, 2011

I’m so woefully behind in editing and posting photos. I still haven’t finished the girls’ dance recital pics from May. But before the time gets away and I forget altogether, I wanted to post a few North Woods family vacation photos. We love going to Minnesota every summer.    It’s so relaxing and was a […]


Beautiful Feet

by Edie Wadsworth on August 9, 2011

Due to some very difficult circumstances after our pastor retired last year, we felt very strongly that we needed to find a Christ-centered confessional church for our family to attend. We’ve been at First Lutheran Church in Knoxville now for almost exactly a year.   Lutherans don’t change churches very often or easily so it was […]


Why I {still} homeschool

by Edie Wadsworth on August 5, 2011

It is a delicate thing, this public writing.   To write honestly about something you love without conveying a sense of superiority or smugness.   I’m sure I fail at it miserably and I pray you’ll forgive my  shortcomings in this area. I simply couldn’t have expected this turn in my life—-that I would be […]


Project Restoration:: Concrete and Kitchen Layout

by Edie Wadsworth on August 4, 2011

The stone is finished and the concrete at the basement level looks great! I thought you might enjoy seeing the kitchen layout.  I’m so happy with Gary from Keith’s Custom Cabinets. He’s truly an artisan and has been able to interpret my vague ideas perfectly.  Most of my cabinets are made and we’re now ready […]

Sister’s 40th Birthday!

by Edie Wadsworth on August 2, 2011

Today is my little sister’s 40th birthday.   We had a surprise party for her on Sunday and I’m so happy we could honor her and decorate her up in gaudy party trappings! She is an amazing woman.   She has been my rock during this grieving/recovering/rebuilding period. She lives an hour away but comes […]
