What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

Sigh. What a perfect day.


Your girls are going to have the BEST memories of growing up!


What a fun way to begin summer....hope you continue to have loads of fun with the girls and family....
I pass a junior school on my way to office...last week they had some major sports event in the campus...the children were having a blast I suppose becuase they were still there when I was returning from office..:)
Summer is here and everyone's glad.



i think i accidentally posted a blank comment just now...

well, i was going to say that i love the idea of reading at breakfast...i'll have to remember that when Tulip gets a little older.


We are reading Anne of Green Gables around our house. But I can't read at breakfast. I guess our cereal is too crunchy or something. We can't hear! :)

miss chris

Sounds pretty nice to me. And thanks for the reminder of the Moffats. We loved the 100 dresses.... And your party from the previous post sounded wonderful, too. Good times. xo


I almost froze yesterday at the USAFA, and it's still cold here today too!

Have you ever read Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild? I haven't but hope to with Sarah this summer.
