“How do you do it?  How do you sleep all three kids in one room?”

I get asked this question…a lot.  Honestly, I’m no supermom, so I don’t usually have a good answer.  I guess the one thing we had going for us was that our kids have never known anything but sharing a room together. [...]

Trust In Real Life

Problems.  They either get your heart pumping with adrenaline or bring weighty worry.
One thing that I am slow in learning, but growing in just the same, is trusting in the Lord no matter what my outside circumstances – or pending deadlines – look like.  God is always in control, and He has never let me [...]

God Is Good…Really?

A few weeks ago Jackson went missing.  We couldn’t find him anywhere.  He had wandered off.  An army of us went out looking for him, and with every step I took I found myself praying, screaming out his name, and wondering if this was it. If this would be the “big one”.  You know, the [...]

September

September is one of those crazy, transitional months that I look forward to all through August and then panic and stress out when “the first” finally arrives.  I can’t wait to get back into the swing of routine, shuffling kids out the door for school, and the pre-mature glimpses of the approaching fall season.  At the same time, [...]

Oh. My. Lord. 
 
My life seems to have made a hard left-hand turn.  And let me just say this before I go on…this turn of events is an answer to many, many prayers (spoken and unspoken).
 
I’m going back to work, people!  I haven’t worked outside the home since I was pregnant with Sydney.  We’re talking over [...]

The Scrambler

Jackson barely passed the height requirement for the “Scrambler” ride at the city amusement park.  I was hopeful that he’d still be too small, but we grow ‘em up tall in the Slater family, so I shouldn’t have been surprised when the girls squealed out that Jackson was tall enough.
 
In my mind I imagined the [...]

Sun-Induced

It has been raining for days weeks months out here in the Northwest. It’s almost been more than this poor African girl can handle. Unmotivated to do anything but sit around the house looking like a “shlumpadinka”, I was beginning to wonder if we would ever see the sun again.  And then, gloriously, vitamin D [...]

First…Congratulations to Tristan…winner of the Summer Reading Give-Away!
Thank you to everyone who participated and shared your favorite must-reads.  I’m adding them to my list for sure!
*Sigh*
Let’s just put it this way, when the day starts out with, “Mommy!  The tooth fairy forgot to put money under Sydney’s pillow last night!” you know you are kicking the [...]

Super-Hero Mom

I’ll bet you didn’t know that I’m a super hero.  Are you gasping from surprise?  This is new to me, too, as I was just informed by Jackson today- right after I killed a spider and flushed it down the toilet- that I am a super hero.  I can wield a mean wad of toilet [...]

Something To Be Thankful For…

I spent an unmentionable amount of time staring blankly at my computer screen yesterday afternoon.  I was trying to write up a post for today, but my mind was drawing a blank.  I pulled up a post-in-process and tinkered around with it for a while, but it still isn’t ready.  I perused facebook and twitter [...]
