Guns and Our “Rights” (PART 3 of 3)

I find it most upsetting in the “We will not let the government interfere with our right to bare (sic) arms” touting, is that those who are saying this aren’t listening to all the details of what’s actually going on in the world. They are only hearing “stricter laws” without hearing the details. There is […]

Guns and Our “Rights” (PART 1 of 3)

One of the many reasons I don’t post on this blog as frequently as I used to is because of Facebook. Using that resource, I’m able to post notes and photos and general life comments to my friends and family quickly and easily. That said, since the shootings in Arizona on January 8, 2011, there […]

Cat Haiku Contest Win

Happy day for my family and me! When our local vegan restaurant, Lovin’ Spoonfuls Cafe, sent us an invitation for a benefit dinner for one of our favorite local cat shelters, Casa de los Gatos, we were immediately interested. Add in a haiku contest, plus the chance to meet up with some fabulous friends of […]

Our interview with KGUN9 about Radical Unschooling

On Friday, July 16th, Jennifer Waddell and her cameraman Jimmy came to my family’s house to interview us about our Radical Unschooling lifestyle. Since it’s been asked: Opening our home to the interview was a big decision that my family made together. If even one of us had decided not to, the answer would have […]

13 Things Zoë has Given Me

Today marks the anniversary of the birth of my oldest child.  Zoë is officially 13 as of 8:35AM Iowa time! It’s true, she’s been hesitant about this birthday.  She has loved her parties over the years, but she has always been unexcited about the prospect of actually being a year older (and thirteen feels particularly […]

Whipple Observatory, Amado, AZ, USA — PART ONE

Every three months, the Whipple Observatory’s visitor center hosts a “Star Party”.  Since we can see this observatory from our house, we’ve been wanting to go there for some time.  When I first looked into it, my youngest was younger than 6. Since they don’t allow those younger than 6 to go to the observatory […]

View from My Window

I’ve really been enjoying the flowers this spring.  Here is a view from my dining room window (through the glass and screen) of the Santa Rita prickly pear blooming, plus a variety of photographs of other prickly pear blooms around my land.  I’ve also added a photo of my daughters with my mom and one […]

123 People Photographs

After taking photographs of my daughters as the letters of the alphabet, they wanted to try making numbers, too.  We recently got around to doing this and here are the awesome results (they were taken in Rancho Sahuarita in December 2008).  We’ve made something really exciting with these numbers that I’ll be posting about very […]

Then and Now: Photographs of My Daughters in 2003 and 2008

From the moment each of my daughters were born, you’ve seldom been able to find me without a camera close by.  A favorite thing for me to do is to take photographs of my second daughter in the same environment and clothing as her sister wore at the same size.  Here are a few photographs […]
