Office/Studio

Since we might be in our current world situation for a while,  I decided to clean out the office spaceso it could double as an exercise studio (and it just sounds cool to say the word "studio"). My bedroom/exercise space was getting awfully crowded (wedged in between the TV and the bed)...

Social Distancing Love

We know the rules we understand how easily the C-virus spreads  and also the devastation it has caused. So to still connect with our loved ones near us  and keep our family and our friends protected, our family came up with a plan. We decorated Mr. Nielson's truck with crepe paper, treats,...

Figuring it out.

Today I waited in line in the rain with Lottie to get into the grocery store,  and I know this is the norm for lots of people on planet earth right now.   I%27m not going to lie to you, today was a hard one. And I think maybe it had to do with the fact that the  Nies are all home from school and ...

Home Church
