About Moi!

Hello world! Coming to you live from my dining room/play room is me, Cassie! I'm a mom, a wife, a christian, a homemaker, a wannabe seamstress, a crafter, and probably a million more things. And this blog is about me growing in all of those areas. Lucky lucky blog world! No, really,I don't expect to have many viewers to this site, but for those few that are interested, I will be here, sharing along the way.


One of the things I want to do first is introduce my sweet boys that you will, no doubt, be hearing all about. First up is O. He is 4 and currently gearing up to enter pre-k this fall and pretty much lives in superhero costumes. He is the sweetest boy you could meet. Really. Of course I am his mother, and might be prejudiced, but! he really is a sweet, cuddling, inquisitive little man.

Number two is C. C is by far a different boy. He is almost 2 and he has the energy of no other! If O wants to cuddle, turkey is probably throwing something at us! God gave me this sweet little boy to stretch me out of my comfort level and I have loved every minute of it!


The third boy in my life is the love of my life. Alex and I have been happily married for almost 7 years. There are days that I wake up and still can't believe that he chose me, waited for me, and married me. We have a very special relationship and it is beyond important to me to continue to nurture that. Especially being a mom, sometimes our marriages can take a back seat and in the process lose their importance. I never want that to happen. I don't think I could survive without my best friend.


So! There it is. A very basic introduction to the basis of this blog. I hope you stick around to see what it unfolds in to!

From the Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E Frankweiler Book Celebration

Whew! That blog title is a mouth full! Funny story, when I tried to introduce this book to our book club, I couldn't spit the title out. A fellow mom came to my rescue and introduced the book. I don't know why it was so tricky, but I just couldn't say it!

Anyway...We took a few months off from book club because of the holidays and came back together in February to celebrate the reading of From the Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg. If you are not familiar with this book, the Metropolitan Museum of Art serves as the background for a mystery surrounding a work thought to possibly be Michelangelo's. A brother and sister spend the book looking for clues while living at the museum. It was a fun read.

As an appropriate celebration, we decided to host our book club at the local Art Museum. They have a great wing with classrooms that we were able to meet in and then we went for a short guided walk through part of the gallery!

Our craft this time was …

Back to School Celebration plus a FREE Printable!

I know a lot of homeschoolers people choose to not go all out for the back to school hullabaloo. That's awesome and I totally get it.  But me? Well I love this time of year...mostly**.  I like to clean out the school room, buy the needed (or not so needed) school supplies, organize the books,  sharpen the pencils and launch into another year. It helps me to feel re-invigorated and ready to tackle the challenges that lie ahead, because, let's be honest, there will be challenges! But still, this makes me feel happy!


I remember being so excited before the first day of school, and even though our look a little different, I want my boys to be excited about starting school back too. So, every year we do a couple of fun things for the 1st day back.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Book Celebration!

Last week I shared about our September book club party for Alice in Wonderland. This week I'm going to show you our November book party for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe! I think this one was even more fun than the last!

Since it was a wee bit colder around here in November, we opted to have this book club at our local library. They have a great story hour room that you can reserve for community events, and it works perfectly for our group. The younger siblings can wander back and forth between our event and the children's area of the library! Brilliant!

As the children arrived, they got to go through a wardrobe! Ok...so maybe it wasn't a wardrobe so much as a clothes rack with long coats hanging on it, but that didn't stop the kids from going through it over and over and over!


When they stepped through they were greeted by this loveliness! I had several trees situated throughout the room to create the feeling of Narnia! The white fabric at the base was supposed…
