Galatians 6:9

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9

Colossians 1:10

That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:10

Wait, you're what?

We're in the business of raising autonomous adults NOT children here!


Our first home transformation

Our first house.
We bought it in 2007, in northern NY.
It was a labor of love, slowly remodeling the place room by room. I was happy to have a mortgage off our backs when we sold the place (we were completely 100% debt free for a brief few months!), but I was sad to part with it because it held so many fond memories. I would love to buy another old house and remodel it to just my liking. There's something special about transforming your house into just what you wanted. I had high hopes for the attic, but as is life at times, we sold the place in preparation for a move (compliments of hubby's job).

The kitchen (who puts carpet in the kitchen?!)
