Reconciling myself to the ebb and flow of clutter

by Traci Schumacher on Thu, 09/26/2013 - 11:06am

I suppose every home has a collecting spot. Or at least I like to think that it's not just mine. In our home, the collecting spot is the love seat in the living room. It's the primary place where things gather temporarily. Mail and other assorted papers, shopping bags, laundry to fold, random toys, etc. They are not meant to stay there, but they wait patiently for their next destination.

When a bug bite goes beyond itchy to become a problem

by Traci Schumacher on Tue, 09/24/2013 - 11:02am

Living in South Georgia, we deal with a lot of bugs, from biting mosquitoes and sand gnats to benign yet annoying love bugs. In our family, my 7-year-old son and my husband are the biting bug magnets. We can all be outside together, and the two of them will end up with multiple bites while the rest of us may have just one or two. (They both have O+ blood type, which I read is one factor that attracts mosquitoes.)

Hunter Cattle Company's Farm Heritage Day was great family fun

On Saturday our family went to the Hunter Cattle Company's Farm Heritage Day near Brooklet, and we had a grand time. Following a relaxing 40-minute drive through beautiful Georgia farm land, we arrived at the farm. The kids enjoyed riding horses and ponies, watching a goat milking demonstration, riding the mini train ride, chasing chickens, touring the farm by wagon, and simply playing.

Sometimes we moms need a little help and encouragement, a friendly reminder that our kids are not the only ones who do that, whatever it may be. There is a special place for moms of school-age kids to get together and commiserate... or celebrate... the challenges of parenting.

Son gets a little too creative with his homework

by Traci Schumacher on Thu, 09/12/2013 - 11:34am

The kids were working on their homework recently when my 7-year-old son disappeared down the hall. A couple minutes later he returned to the living room, and plopped himself on the couch with his papers. That's when he proudly announced, “No point in doing it the old-fashioned way!”

I was in the kitchen, but I just had to see what he was up to. I couldn't imagine what my son might consider “old-fashioned” or what that had to do with his homework.

Never enough fun

by Traci Schumacher on Tue, 09/10/2013 - 12:53pm

My daughter had a fun weekend spending time with one of her best friends. They played at her friend's house on Saturday, and had a sleepover at our house on Saturday night, complete with church in the morning and hours of play on Sunday.

During that time the girls turned our hall bathroom into a Barbie salon, played with our cats, watched a movie, teased the boys, and caught bugs to put in bug houses. We went to the pool twice, and we went out for dinner.
