Ironic Adventures


Oh yeah, I have this blog…

Would you believe that doing nothing gains you a lot in this cyber world? I didn’t, but it seems to be true.

Realizations earlier this year led me to spend more time focused on my family’s needs and less on my own needs (aka becoming some super-mom-homeschool-blogger). And so {Continue Reading…}


Spectrum Saturday: Crockpot Sweet Marinara & Meatballs

Micah’s favorite dish has always been spaghetti. When we went gluten, soy, and casein free finding good spaghetti sauce was hard – nearly all brands have that ever illusive “natural flavors” ingredient…which I’ve become wary of for many reasons – what IS the “natural flavor,” and why do you have {Continue Reading…}

We actually did our {Continue Reading…}


Spring Math Printable

We went on “vacation” for a week down to Portland, Oregon. We had a fun week filled with friends and family. We spent half the week with my best friend and her family. We haven’t spent that much time together since college! Then we spent Easter weekend with my {Continue Reading…}


Mama, it’ll be 2015 soon!

If only kids could understand how stressful the passing of time is for grown ups! Mine don’t. In fact, on the day Thing One turned 6, he said, “Soon I’ll be 7!” He finds excitement in growing up, in the years and months passing, and I can’t believe it’s April {Continue Reading…}

It has officially been a year since our family began our GFCFSF journey to help Micah both emotionally and digestively.
