Taylor’s senior year

Music and lyrics and one proud mama……..

by Edie Wadsworth on March 6, 2009

There’s nothing quite like sitting at a concert and listening to your son sing and play.  I am so proud of him and so blessed to be his mama.  And I couldn’t be happier that he’s surrounded by such a talented and funny and committed group of guys.  So, given the fact that  you and […]

……and just like that, he was gone.

by Edie Wadsworth on March 4, 2009

My time is running out. I feel the pressure of the days swiftly being hurled at me like an oncoming freight train. He graduates in 86 days. And I’m not ready. Not by a long shot. But as I gather the pictures and cards and awards and songs to try and make some memories live […]

by Edie Wadsworth on February 1, 2009


I may look like I’m scared…..or about to fall. But really I’m just singing and groovin’ to ‘Hi-i-i-i-i stayin’ alive’.  Like my shirt?  I thought so.  My personal tribute to times gone by.  So Christine and Sue and I tooksome big kids and some little kidsand one really crazy kidto the second most germ infested […]


7 Quick Takes…….

by Edie Wadsworth on January 30, 2009

~~~~~~~ 1  ~~~~~~~~~~ We bought a crucifix as a ‘love’ gift to each other. (early Valentine’s) Steve’s been wanting one for a long time.  Did I mention we’re not Catholic?  We are Lutheran however, and Lutherans tend to embrace and appreciate the historicity of christian symbols.  We just hung ours up and I’m just a […]


If I had a salon, I’d call it COIFFEDINGRACE…..

by Edie Wadsworth on January 27, 2009

I didn’t write this on Friday, but it is kinda funny. Here’s what I started singing when Taylor agreed to let me cut his hair: “I got skillz….they’re multiplYing….and I’m loooooooosing contro-ol….for the power you’re supplYing …It’s ELECTRIFYING”.  I sang it all night long.  Then I tried to find my Grease video. Meanwhile, he sat […]

My son’s band, The Verity, finished recording their album last night!  Oh my!  You’re gonna love it I think.  If you’re new here, maybe you should read this first.  The CD is still not quite available to buy yet but you can listen to two songs on their myspace page.  You don’t need a myspace […]


He will restore the years……

by Edie Wadsworth on December 16, 2008

Those of you who are new to my blog can read about my son Taylor here and watch a video of a wonderful song he wrote based on Psalm 42 here. You can learn more about Caiti here.  I write about the little girls all the time…..they’re home alot more than the teenagers.  So today: […]


Song 42

by Edie Wadsworth on November 3, 2008

My son wrote a song called Song 42 based on scripture taken from Psalm 42—tricky, huh?  The song is beautiful and  after I listened to the song 442 times, I went and read Psalm 42…..and began to weep.  Like a baby.  I’ve read Psalm 42 many times before and have always loved it.   But […]

You give me half a reason to go to Birmingham and I’m on the phone to this dear friend.   We met twelve years ago and our boys spent some of their most formative years together…..lucky for me.   Susan and Johnny are one-of-a-kind–friends,  parents,  servants of God.   They have taught their boys well […]


“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 […]

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, […]


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 […]


What,  you say, do these three things have in common?  Well, me , at the moment.   Today the girls and I made these lovely Egyptian pyramids to aid us in our study of the ancient Egypt. We used sugar cubes,  white glue, and paint and had a messy but fun time.   This is […]
