One of my students, Lucy, told her mother yesterday that she "might need to go to Mrs. Linderman's house so she can practice doing hair so when she gets a baby girl she will know how to fix her hair"...

Hilarious. I love seven year olds. She reminded me yesterday that February 1st is her birthday eve.


Our new obsession!

We've added a member to our family! (No, not a baby...)

Meet Sawyer!


He will be nine months old tomorrow! Sawyer is a yellow labrador mix -- he was rescued at twelve weeks by another family outside of Raleigh. We are so blessed to have found this pup who needed to be rehomed.


So far, he has been very well behaved! He loves his rope toys (which I have banned from our home because of all the strings he leaves behind after a chewing session!), tennis balls, and plastic Kongs filled with peanut butter.


He loves to lick but thankfully doesn't slobber much; he's a king at using his sniffer and always obeys to not follow me upstairs with his shedding yellow/white fur coat. Sawyer's a winner!

Guest room!

We have finally put together our guest room! Grant and I have enjoyed finding thrift store or great deals and making them work for our house. It was GREAT to have a break from school to use days to search for deals and plan out our room and guest bath. I cannot wait for more friends to visit!

Brittany and Andrew stayed with us, as our first overnight guests!
