Homeschooling Flight Attendant Style Part 1

On Monday, September 7th, I was wasting time between flights at work one day and decided to take a peek at what I would be facing for my commute to work the next weekend. My next assignment was to begin Sunday morning at 6:00 a.m., so obviously I needed to … Continue reading

Sick Again

It’s been so quiet here for the last two weeks that I can hear crickets chirping, but there’s a good reason: we broke out of our comfort zone in a BIG way – and then we all got sick. Boo. I’ll share more about our trip in a whole post of its … Continue reading

Swimming Holes and Copperheads

One Friday a few weeks ago, Darrel woke me up with the news that he had decided we should go swimming that afternoon. This was huge! My children have never been swimming in their lives. We’ve wanted to take them, but thanks to Epsom salts, we know Zac can have FPIES … Continue reading

A New Way to Fail a Food Trial

Last time I updated, I said that we had started a green bean trial on Zac. It looked so promising that first day (after we convinced him to try one). Sadly, the green bean trial has flopped. The second day of the trial, I couldn’t get him to eat any … Continue reading

Our First Month As Homeschoolers

At 9:00 a.m. on August 4th, the boys and I went to Jed’s first day of school. I really love the commute; we just walked across the house and into our new classroom! That was my first week ever as a homeschooling Mom, and I had no idea how it … Continue reading

We Love Potatos!!

On Thursday, August 13th, Darrel and I declared russet potatos a safe food for Zac. It’s his 18th safe food, and we couldn’t be happier! For his part, Zac adores potatos. He gets excited by mashed potatos, thrilled with hamburger hash, and ecstatic over French fries. For our part, life … Continue reading

Three Years on a TED

On August 8, 2015, I celebrated three years on a TED (Total Elimination Diet). If you had told me my TED would last three years back in August of 2012, I wouldn’t have believed you. If I did finally believe you, I would have curled up in a ball and cried. Nonetheless, … Continue reading

The Wonderful World of Potatos

Do you know what I dislike? Working. More specifically, working so much that I’m exhausted while AT work, and so exhausted when I get home that I’m almost comatose for two days after returning. I took my computer to work with me last week, but, thanks to insane delays on … Continue reading

Ritz Cracker Non-Reaction

Last week was brutal. I’m feeling very off my game right now, so this might not be the best writing I’ve ever done. Still, I wanted to give an update on the tomato trial, since I announced it last week. The tomato trial never happened. Zac helped us pick out tomatos … Continue reading

Controlling the Meanies

It’s been a long couple of weeks. We’ve been busily trying to get the homeschool classroom put together, since Jed has announced that he can only go to school IN a classroom. (Love opinionated kiddos!) Really our classroom is just half of our office cleaned out and dedicated to school … Continue reading
