Best of 2013, the posts

by Edie Wadsworth on December 31, 2013


I don’t know about you, but I love a good New Year’s Eve at home with the kids.  We drag out the party hats, noise makers, the Scrabble game, our favorite tunes from the year, a big ole batch of chocolate fondue and party like it’s 1999.  Until about 10 pm, at which point, I […]

by Edie Wadsworth on December 17, 2013


I went to the mall on Sunday.  Which means that’s the day I lost all faith in humanity.  If I can help it, I won’t go back.  If I go back, I’ll need to be medicated first. Which is why I want to tell you about  Amazon Prime.  We have Amazon Prime and I encourage […]


Where Joy is Found (Advent 2,3)

by Edie Wadsworth on December 15, 2013

It’s getting eerily close to the 3rd year anniversary of our house fire—that dreadful day during Advent when we lost our home.  I remember thinking that Advent would be forever ruined for me.  Right after dinner, the night of December 21, we read the O Antiphon before we lit the candles and finished the readings. […]

Weekend Grace (Thanksgiving Edition)

by Edie Wadsworth on November 24, 2013


A few things for your weekend-before-Thanksgiving preparations! 1.  I made this banner 2 Thanksgivings and 2 kitchens ago, but I still put it up every year.  I just print out the letters and staple them to a ribbon.  Card stock works great, but last year,  I used regular computer paper. The pdf files for the […]

Why I Gave Up Homeschooling

Why I gave up homeschooling via lifeingrace

How glorious the splendor of a human heart that trusts that it is loved. Well, first, I blame Instagram.  Everything was fine and dandy;  we were reading The Iliad and using chalk pastels to paint the prettiest chickens in the free world, when all the IG updates started in from kids at the Classical Christian […]

Home. On Purpose

by Edie Wadsworth on April 30, 2013

This indeed, was a home, – home, -a word that George had never yet known a meaning for; and a belief in God, and trust in His providence, began to encircle his heart, as, with a golden cloud of protection and confidence, dark, misanthropic, pining, atheistic doubts, and fierce despair, melted away before the light […]

40 Days of Water

by Edie Wadsworth on March 18, 2013

or otherwise titled “me and my crappy Lent” Well, I’m sitting here, early on a Monday morning, looking longingly at the week ahead and wishing I had prepared more.  And also wishing I hadn’t been deathly sick for  a week.  Nothing ruins a good Lenten season like illness.  My baby’s birthday is this week and […]
