Double And Trouble……

Yeah I think that may be what I start calling the two littles. I’ve teased about it before but really it seems more and more fitting. Which one is Double and which one is Trouble? Really you can’t have one without the other, they are like a super hero team that is joined together. We…

Oh Christmas Tree…

I typically don’t get our Christmas tree this early in the season, I like to wait for at least the calendar to turn to December, but between Nutcracker, gymnastics meets, preschool programs, work and just day to day with 7 kids it actually worked to go get our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. We…

An Atypical Thanksgiving 2018

Our thanksgiving was anything but “typical” this past week. My parents were out of town and my brother and his new wife had other commitments so when we started looking and planning we all sat down and talked about what we really wanted to do. No one wanted turkey and we decided we’d rather spend…

3 Years Home!

On Sunday we celebrated Edric’s Family Day. He has been home and part of our family for 3 years now! Crazy to realize that it has already been 3 years but also hard to remember what our lives were life before he joined us. To celebrate he wanted pasta and to watch the Bronco game…

Friday Fun Night

Now first off I don’t want you thinking we are one of those “weird homeschool families” who have no idea about real life. Our kids are involved in activities, have friends, play, watch movies and the Broncos, and are fairly normal every day kids. However if you had seen them Friday night you may have…

Happy 3rd Birthday Coppélia Jiyun!

Coppélia’s 3rd birthday is today. 3 years ago Clint and I were actually in South Korea flying home from Edric’s court date the day before. I was tearful getting on the plane knowing that we were leaving Edric behind. Little did I know that we were actually leaving 3 babies behind, Edric with his foster…

First Days for 2018/2019 School Year

It’s been a week of first days. Edric, Caedmon, and Leighton started homeschool (K, 1st, and 4th) on Monday the 15th and Paxton and Coppélia had their first day of preschool on the 15th. Technically we still have a few more firsts with ballet starting for Caedmon, Paxton, and Coppélia next week and then the…

Happy 9th Birthday Leighton Reid!

9 years ago today after 41 hours of LONG labor Leighton made his entrance into this world and made me a mommy. It would take over an hour until the nurse would let me out of bed and down the hall to really see him for the first time instead of the quick glance I…

An Ode To Marshmallows…

So pretty sure I stick to a healthy diet. And pretty sure I make sure my kids eat a ton of veggies and fruit, and dessert is something we maybe have once or twice a month. When we go to the grocery store our cart is overflowing before we even leave the produce section. All…

Korea Camp 2018

So I keep delaying writing this post because I want to include the photos that I took on my actual camera and not just the ones I took on my phone. Well….at this rate I might get the post written sometime in 2020, and so I decided to just use the few photos on my…
