Focus on the Freckles…and setting firm and fair boundaries for your child.

Sometimes I get so frustrated caring for and raising this child of mine, that I forget why we chose to adopt her and raise her in the first place. I have always coached the employees of my preschool with the statement “You must get the behaviors under control, and then you can start having fun!” And Read More →

Heart Attack! A week from our life…

Unbelievable! Sunday 3/13/16 about noon – Well, Bob was working in the front yard, trimming the hedge, when he came into the house, telling me he didn’t feel good. He started to feel worse, and said “I have to go lay down on the floor.” That is Bob-speak for “I am going to pass out” Read More →

Titan's flag

So 5 year old (almost 6!) T comes out of his Kindergarten class and collects his back pack, and he has a Chinese paper flag/craft of some sort in his hand. It looked cumbersome while he was trying to put on his backpack so I held out my hand to offer to carry it for Read More →

Well there it is…what we did for my 56th birthday. “The Telling”, where the County Social Workers read aloud to us everything they know about The Rosebug’s history. Quite a history, too! Most of it we already knew, but some of it was new to us. I love how the records say “she may have an aunt Read More →

My 33 year old childcare business is floundering. Through no fault of our own. I believe in my program. I am especially impressed with my staff, whom would be more accurately described as my family. Ashleigh has shown her true colors as an amazing teacher. Every day she reads our children stories, teaches them about the Read More →

KT’s Ferris Wheel

Version 2

One of my favorite 5 year old artists was drawing a ferris wheel for her dad. She drew the wheel complete with spokes and seats and even a hub (Pretty amazing I thought…but then, I never cease to be amazed by this child). Then she drew herself and her dad, and a beautiful blue sky, Read More →

Metal Detecting, Manzanita and Moss

IMG_5242hArt

Bob and I took our little Rosebug out to the mountains just east of Cibbets Flats to do a little metal detecting. I was very impressed with how the ‘Bug has picked up Bob’s methods…she is like his little “mini-me” when it comes to metal detecting. She sweeps the metal detector until she hears a Read More →
