A New Normal…..

Like everyone we are figuring out a new normal…for me at work at for everyone at home. The homeschooling this isn’t new to us, so it’s been business as usual on that front. But the rest of home life has been a little different. We are doing church and Bible Studies via computers or this…

Spring….

So winter has been nice and all but I’m officially over it. I’m ready for sunshine and warmth. It has been an unusually cold and dreary winter for Colorado. I know that I still have a bit but I think the kids feel my desire for some spring hope because while they were riding their…

Braces Off!

We hit another milestone on Thursday, Leighton got his braces off! Initially they were only suppose to be on for 12 months and it ended up being stretched out to 18 months because his teeth move slowly. But they finally came off (for this first round at least). He has a retainer on the top…

Sledding Fun….

We have had a number of days with snow lately but Saturday morning the sun was out and it was a gorgeous day. Which made it a perfect day for my dad to come over and hook up the 4-wheeler and the sleds. I’m not sure who had the most fun, my parents or the…

Valentines…..

It’s not even Valentine’s yet but all the kids Valentines are done and bagged up and ready to hand out to their preschool class or their Apex Homeschool class. And can I tell you the part that I was most excited about this year? Leighton being in 5th grade this year didn’t have to do…

Date Night!

On Saturday evening Clint and I got to have a date night. I had a planning meeting for Korea Adoption Camp scheduled that afternoon in Denver and we decided to just make an afternoon and evening of it. After the meeting we headed downtown and went out for Indian food which is always one of…

Activities…

We are busy with our winter/spring activities. Everyone gets to do one sport/activity because mommy and daddy only have so much time and so many hours in a day and we have said that we are not spending every evening in a car driving somewhere. And Paxton and Coppelia’s activity is preschool because….honestly we spend…

A New Year…

Last year I started using a Simplified Planner by Emily Ley as well as a Goal Planner from Cultivate What Matters, and as I was getting everything set up for 2020 and reviewing what worked well and what needs to change and goals for the year I decided to expand that to our family and…

Mimi And Papa Visit

Last weekend Clint’s parents came for a visit. It was really hot all weekend long but we had a good time despite the weather. There was a lot of playing in the water and running through the sprinklers. The kids had fun playing Legos, reading books and playing games with Mimi and Papa as well….

A Mid Summer’s Night 2019….

Over the weekend we were transported back to the time of William Shakespeare and his comic play, A Mid Summer Night’s Dream via the Centennial State Ballet’s production. Caedmon was a purple bug and I was a backstage mom/doctor/extra set of hands. A few months ago after we got the casting as rehearsals were just…
