Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

  1. This afternoon/evening I’m devoting to catching up in Reader … I keep hearing about a program that I think you and the kids would like. It’s a streaming service called “Curiosity Stream” and is many types of scientific, nature and other programs and costs about $20.00 a year. Well today I heard about their features on dinosaurs and my ears perked up for those two kids who adore dinosaurs. I’ll put the link separately in case it goes to SPAM … I shared it with Yvette recently as they had some programs I thought she would be interested in.

    1. Linda, thank you for sharing these resources! My kids know that you give us cool ideas and nature facts.
      I’m catching up too in Reader. Crazy week with painters patching and painting the torn up kitchen wall. It’s not done but at least there is less eye sore. lol. We took refuge in the car while the paint dried and Elliot was thoroughly happy that he got to sit in the front seat and play video games.
      Yvette might like it too!

      1. You’re welcome Esther. I just got here and need to write my posts for this week. I just heard the ad again and the series is coming up this week. I don’t know if it is available afterward, but don’t see why not. They gave a preview on the radio and it sounded interesting. I’d like to sign up when retired and I have more time. Yes, paint smell is the worst, but for future reference, use Valspar Ultra (ultra low-odor, Zero VOC formula). I heard about it and told my neighbor who had advanced COPD and was on full oxygen and not able to leave the house and it never bothered her (though that would kill the kids’ enjoyment of getting out of the house and school).


    1. Great resource! Thank you for sharing the link.
      Dinosaurs are still big in this house.
      BTW, I forgot to mention that we went to the drive-thru Jurassic World event this summer. We missed it last year but they finally made it to our hood.
      The tour was informative, interesting, and enjoyable although we would’ve had more fun roaming around the place checking out the dinosaurs close up. The drive through meant you could only see the dinosaurs once and then you exit. No complaints…with COVID, happy that we at least got to experience it. You drive through the designated path with audio guide on the radio.
      Kids wanted to go again, but the entrance fee was $50. Maybe in 2022, they’ll bring the dinos back.


      1. That’s great – in fact I thought about that Jurassic World when I sent you the link last night. That was perfect – a fun outing to see dinos and no COVID worries. Entrance fee at $50.00 a car was steep – I wonder what they charge if you go in person. Now that would be scarier than the dinosaurs.
