Here are some of the frequently asked questions I receive in my inbox…
HOW do you get everything done? It seems like with homeschooling, cooking from scratch, cleaning and keeping up with the website…you must never sleep.
I do work hard…but I bet you do too. :) My boys are not babies anymore so I don’t have to watch them constantly to make sure they don’t put light bulbs in their mouths. Plus, all of my boys are old enough to do a lot of work around the house.
I tend to work really fast – so much so that a perfectionist might watch me work and be very annoyed. I hardly ever measure ingredients when I cook, I don’t care if something I’m making looks perfect (unless I’m taking a picture of it for you to see!), and most days my hair is in a ponytail.
How do you pronounce your kid’s names? And, how did you come up with them?
We chose unique names for our kids because when we were in college there were TOO many people named Matt and Laura – and because when I taught school – I felt bad for the kids having to be called by their last name since they were in a classroom with three other kids that shared their first name.
We wanted Bible names for our kids, just because we did. So, unique Bible names it is.
Asa (ay-suh)….was a good king (one of the few). You can read about him in 1 Kings 15:8-24.
Justus (just-us)…spent time with Jesus and was considered to replace Judas as apostle. (Acts 1:23)
Elias (ee-lie-us)…is just another form of the name Elijah.
Malachi (mal-uh-kie)…a prophet, the last book of the Old Testament.
Is it loud at your house?
I’m sorry, did you say something?
How much do you spend on groceries each month? How do you eat such healthy food on such a tight budget?
What are your favorite nutrition resources?
