Facing the storm

Another guest blog up on Impactwomennv.com! It’s a spin off of a blog I wrote here a while back. Hope you enjoy it and the rest of the writers over at Impact! I live in the south. Tennessee to be specific. And it storms here, if you haven’t heard. And I mean ‘STORMS’ as a verb. It’s an action word …

8 states

I don’t know if you follow me on social media or not (let me take this opportunity to suggest that you SHOULD and you can find links right on over on the right margin of this blog page) but if you do, you might have noticed that we have been on somewhat of a amazing race across this great country! …

Summertime in Summertown

I’m not one for heat. Even though school is out in the summer and I remember liking that as a kid, I would have to say that summer is pretty much my least favorite season. I just don’t like being hot. However, I still stand by the fact that Tennessee summers have been WAY better than I could have ever …

When the storm comes…

I started homeschooling today! Yes, I realize that a random Sunday in the middle of the summer is a fairly strange day to start homeschooling your kids, but hey, it’s the first of the month so it felt fitting in my OCD brain somehow. Well, that, and the kids were basically begging me last night to start. We began our …

Tornado warning

I was just checking Facebook, as I’ve been known to do from time to time, and wouldn’t you know it, one year ago today we were issued our very first tornado warning. I remember it well! We had only lived in Tennessee one month, and I thought it was hilarious that we were already experiencing the adventures of the south. …

School house rocked

Two significant things happened today. I watched my daughter’s Kindergarten graduation, complete with songs, a P.E. showcase (which was a dance), and a slide show of a cap and gown picture of every last Kindergartner advancing to first grade in the school. Luckily, this is a small town. I opened up the two boxes that have been sitting in my …

I just felt like running

Have you ever told yourself that you’re not something that you could be? My whole life I’ve told myself, and anyone who mentioned the word, that I am not a runner. I’m not a runner because I don’t run. I don’t like to run. I don’t want to run. I’m not good at running. I don’t believe in a runner’s …

Chattanooga

The Cunningham clan made a get away this weekend, and it was much needed! It’s been a while since we put this ol’ travel trailer to real use- never mind the fact that we use it as a guest house when visitors are in town, which is frequently. But we haven’t towed it anywhere since last summer, which is to …

Civil War

Be honest, you totally clicked on this because it’s Valentine’s day and you thought I was being clever with my title and referring to a ‘civil war’ in my relationship. Sorry to disappoint! Today I’m writing about the actual Civil War. But I’m glad you’re here! As I mentioned in my blog, Shalom Family, while my mom and Papa Scott …
