 Have you heard of the Scribd app? 

It's like Netflix for books and it's changing my life! For $8.99/month, you have unlimited access to audiobooks, E-books, and even sheet music (hear that, Liam?). No expensive purchasing of books (like Audible) and there are thousands and thousands of titles. I've been listening to Rosaria Butterfield's The Gospel Comes with a House Key and my kids love listening to The Magic Tree House series while Liam reads along. Scribd also has lots of the books - in E-book and audiobook form - that we'll be reading with Liam and Lanie's homeschool curriculum for next year.

If you download the app using this link, you'll get your first two months FREE and I'll get one month. Score. Give it a try! You can cancel anytime.

Tea time.

Friday, June 21, 2019

In the past few weeks, we've begun incorporating afternoon tea time into our daily routine. We'd practiced it on occasion through the past year of homeschool, but never made it a habit. This upcoming school year, we'll be using a Charlotte Mason-inspired curriculum that sets aside time for tea and reading together each afternoon. But whether or not you use Charlotte Mason or even homeschool, this would be a sweet practice to incorporate into your day - especially during the summer when kids are home.

This day.

These photos were taken just moments before I realized I was going into labor. Little did any of us know how our lives were about to change in a matter of a few hours. I will cherish these photos - and this day - forever.

Meeting Beckham.

Forgive the photo dump. These are just too precious not to share. I'll let the photos tell the story of this much anticipated meeting of our littlest guy.

Breastfeeding at night: the essentials.

Saturday, June 8, 2019

I'm four times in to this breastfeeding-through-the-night gig, and I'm still learning new things. What works? What doesn't? What makes being up every 2-3 hours at night for weeks on end somewhat bearable? I thought I'd share a few of my favorite items that are new to me this fourth time around. As simple as they are, they are making these early days of newborn life more manageable. Click on the links to purchase from Amazon, if you're interested.
