End of School!

It’s summertime y’all!  Schools out and I’ve never been happier! (Well, okay, maybe I’ve been happier, but this year was PHEW!) Our little guy is done with 2nd grade and managed over the year to read 124 books!  He’s so proud of his accomplishment that he put the Accelerated Reader paper on his desk in […]

All things April!

April has been an amazing month, so far!  Silas is branching out a little more every day and every day, we learn something new about his ADHD.  We’re working to figure out how he handles things day to day and learning how to adapt when things fail for him. ADHD is a hard battle if […]

All I want for (insert holiday name) is a clean house…

Let me be first to admit, this image isn’t my house – though mine looks this way OFTEN with kids.  I wish I had a Tidy House by Marie Kondo,  but if I’m honest, about the only thing that SPARKS JOY for me lately is the sound of trash bags opening and dumping stuff into […]

Catching up!

Okay, so let’s just admit it.  I’m super bad at making time for me – and this blog.  But, ‘April 1 resolutions’ anyone?  I mean, am I joking with myself? So, catching up! Right before Spring Break, the kids had a great week planned at school.  It had been pretty chilly and I was a […]

Welcome 2019!

I’m the world’s worst food planner.  I really want to get better at this, but I’m just not great at it.  I envy the family that can meal plan/prep and stay on budget.  This isn’t my strong suit.  However, I’m getting better!

Giving Thanks

Every year since our little guy was born, we’ve tried to take a vacation during the Thanksgiving holidays.  The past two years have been a little different in that we decided to have Thanksgiving at the coast, instead of trying to go the day after.  It helps with vacation time, but it also make the […]

Mom Rules

I tried to start this post with talking about how ‘for the most part, I’m pretty laid back…’ but then I’m not sure if my guilty conscious got to me or if the Lord was warming up a lightning bolt, but I erased it.  Quickly.  I’m pretty high strung, but I think that contributes to […]

All things lately…

I’ve got a secret to share with you.  Ready?  I know, it’s gonna be a shocker, but I think we might want to get this out of the way – probably before we go much further… I know, just let that sink in for a few minutes.  You’ll be okay.  So what’s brought me to […]

First day of school!

Silas and Elysha were especially excited that they got to meet ‘The Jenga Player’ on deck today.   Our sweet friend Laurie has an amazing son who has really made a difference in Silas’ life.
