...saw you in church this a.m.but didn't get a chance to say hi.I think moving is so exciting and at one point I was addicted to it, but also I know that with children at home it brings a whole other element of emotion and consideration to it. I will most definately pray for you and the family and if you do move I will miss seeing those cute little kids in mass every week. John Paul looked so cute today with his eyes peering out over your shoulder. At one point he looked up at Patrick and it was the sweetest look ever. Yes, yes, I was paying attention to the Fr. Robert too :)


Thank you all for your kind comments on my hair. I still don't like it, but will live with it until I can get it reshaped.
And Miss Nosey Pants ;0) We may be moving for work. Not sure of exactly where or exactly when but it is looking like a real possibility. I have mixed emotions at the moment, so we will see!! pray for me!

Patrick's journal is so cute! I have always wanted my kids to have a nature journal, but it has never happened.


I thought your hair looked cute,very cute. Hum... are you thinking of moving? I'm just being nosey...you said you were praying for discerment about where God wants your family, so come on, like I could just let that slip by and not say anything. I'm not nearly as polite as your other readers :) and I don't actualy expect an answer, but I did have to ask. Have a happy homecoming :)


I love Patrick's nature journal too! (and I like your hair)


I love when I click on your blog and find a new post!
I love the less is more idea...I have a tendency to clutter our school day but you are right. Thanks for getting me thinking on that one.
I didn't notice your bad haircut when I saw you yesterday...it must not be as bad as you think.
I love Patrick's nature journal!!

About Me

  • Hi, my name is Kirsten. I am married to my best friend and we have nine awesome children including our little saint in heaven, Thomas Joseph. We are Catholic, loving, living, and learning about our faith every day. We just moved to a fixer upper farm here in beautiful Kentucky. We also homeschool some of our children. I really enjoy COFFEE, reading, gardening, running, and knitting. I try to enjoy, laundry and cleaning bathrooms and sweeping floors. But what I really love is to be home, with my husband and children, living this life. This blog is where I write about the good stuff (mostly). Thanks for stopping by!

Prayer to St. Joseph

  • PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH THE WORKMAN Composed by Pope St. Pius X O glorious St. Joseph, model of all those who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work conscientiously, putting the call of duty above my natural inclinations, to work with gratitude and joy, in a spirit of penance for the remission of my sins, considering it an honor to employ and develop by means of labor the gifts received from God, to work with order, peace, moderation and patience, without ever shrinking from weariness and difficulties, to work above all with purity of intention and detachment from self, having always death before my eyes and the account that I must render of time lost, of talents wasted, of good omitted, of vain complacency in success, so fatal to the work of God. All for Jesus, all through Mary, all after thine example, O Patriarch, St. Joseph. Such shall be my watchword in life and in death. Amen.

A Considered Childhood by Elizabeth Foss

  • As much as I am able, every day, I will ensure that my child will: * Live the Liturgy * Experience loveliness * Breathe deeply: Fresh air and exercise * Serve others * Listen to, contemplate, and exchange ideas. * Develop expressive skills. * Practice logical reasoning. Math. * Receive focused attention and affection
