What a haul from your garden - that is amazing!!!

I just finished the whole 30 a couple weeks ago. Up front, I made two exceptions for butter and peanut butter. And I made my family do it with me :) John was all for it, and I didn't mind if the kids didn't stick with it when we were away from home. But it wasn't that big a deal, it turned out, to just feed them all what I was having, and making meals without grains and dairy wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, either. What's hard is life after whole 30, and consistently making good food choices. The meals I make are still very healthy for the most part, but I haven't done the best at avoiding sugar :/ We're thinking of doing it again at Lent, too :)

Also, we really like "How to Destroy the Imagination of your Child" and Anthony Esolen is always a joy to read.

See you at Mass!

That was fun. You have a lot going on! You should knit something -- you deserve to sit for a while. ;-)

I cleaned all the bedrooms this week -- how odd. I don't know why except I guess they needed it.

If it makes you feel any better, I can't do whole 30. I can do one thing at a time, like grain, or maybe dairy (never tried) but trying to feed a whole family and eat none of what they will eat would be really, really hard. I think my mental health is more important right now.

Happy weekend!

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
