I can’t believe it is almost March. In just a short time, Wyatt will be a big time 6 year old. It’s hard to believe at this time last year, I was getting ready for our little family getaway to Western Michigan, and for his lumberjack themed birthday party. It seems like it was a lifetime away. I am so thankful for that party because a week after we had it our state went into lockdown, and we had at least just spent time with everyone that we love. This year we are just going to celebrate with the three of us, and schedule video chats with the family. I am trying to think of something fun we can do for his birthday too. I’ll think of something. And while we are not going on a little trip right now, I did make reservations for a small trip this summer! I found a campsite through Hipcamp that sounds amazing! It is totally private, only one family at a time, one campsite, located on 30+ acres of vineyard on the west side of Michigan. (Here is the link if you want to check it out!) I have not slept in a tent in a hundred years, and it will be Wyatt’s first time, so I am both excited and slightly nervous. Any advice/tips/tricks for camping with kids is appreciated!
Read Last Week:
I absolutely loved The Tourist Attraction!! It was super cute and the main characters were adorably dorky goofballs. It took longer to read than I had anticipated since I kept leaving my Kindle uncharged. Super frustrating. I am hoping to get a short review post up this week of a few books and this will be on there. As for Braving the Wilderness, I started out strong but have sort of lost interest. I just feel like I get the point of what she is saying at about halfway through the book. It’s good but I probably won’t finish it for a while.
Reading This Week:
I love this series by Armstrong so I am super excited to start it! It’s on my Kindle though, so it will probably take me longer since I am terrible about charging it… And I am finally starting Solitude of Wolverines, which I actually checked out as a physical book from the library. I am looking forward to reading both of these!

Watching and Listening:
We finished up All Creatures Great and Small – and I want more. I think it was fantastic and I absolutely loved how they were able to keep true to the original series as well as the books in the new version of the show. It was excellent. We also started the show Traces on Britbox, and are also watching lots of Hometown, probably because we are in the middle of our own big house refresher right now. Wyatt has been watching Wild Kratts, Molly of Denali, and Sesame Street. This kid loves the Count and Cookie Monster. As for podcasts, I am listening to Morbid, Ologies, Homemaker Chic, and Lore. With Wyatt, we are listening to the Naturalist Kids Podcast, the Molly of Denali podcast, and Earth Rangers. Taylor Swift’s albums Evermore and Folklore are played almost on repeat around here, and when we mix it up we listen to Miranda Lambert (my husband’s favorite..), Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, Lord Huron, and Old Dominion lately.
And that is it from our snug little house today! What have you all been doing?
Stay safe and warm (or cool my southern hemisphere friends!)
