In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a Catholic, homeschooling, homemaking mom to my six kids and wife to my ever loving husband. If this offends you, I’m OK with that. I don’t set out to offend people, but I will never back down from the truth or from speaking out what needs to be spoken. I understand this may cost me some readers, and I’m fine with that. To paraphrase St. Thomas More in A Man for All Seasons (who was paraphrasing Jesus at the time), it profit a man nothing if he lose his soul to gain the whole world, but for blog followers?
We try to live a big life in a small space, namely our apartment. This blog chronicles our lives in the Le. Rheims (pronounced leh rames) apartment building in Newark, NJ.
We homeschool our kids, at our kitchen table mainly, though lately it may be on our living room floor, so you may see some random homeschool related posts. These may include things such as ideas for lessons, projects, and helpful hints. I also try out Catholic kid crafts, and try to keep our day to day lives based around the Church Calendar, not the secular one.
When I’m not posting, I’m reading, knitting, crocheting, talking politics, baking, and watching far too much Masterpiece Theater than is good for anyone. I have been known to break into song (and dance) anywhere from the aisles of the supermarket to my own kitchen. I believe that yarn and cookies, separately of course, are God sends. Also, that bacon is a little gift from God for believing in Jesus (think about it).
Feel free to drop me a line at lerheims @ gmail.com (without the spaces, obviously). I love hearing from readers.
