Thankfullness

This month as we reflect on the year and our lives we are doing a thankfulness bucket at our house. In reality its a thankfulness popcorn bowl but it works. At least once a day usually during lunch or dinner we go around the table and ask everyone one thing that they are thankful for….

Miller Farms 2019

So our cancelled field trip from a couple weeks ago with preschool to Miller Farms got rescheduled to this past Tuesday and it was a beautiful day. It started a little cool but that didn’t seem to slow anyone down. We got there and explored and played a little and then quickly hopped on a…

Change In Plans…

A couple of weeks ago on a Tuesday we were suppose to go on a field trip with the little’s preschool class to Miller Farms where the kids can pick vegetables and explore the farm but we woke up that morning to rain and temps in the 40s and so needless to say the field…

Edric-4 Years Home!

On September 23rd we celebrated Edric being home for 4 years. Actually we had a family dinner on the 22nd because no one had a practice or commitment that night. And I managed to not get any photos of his dinner. We had “crack noodles’ which I think is the actual name of the recipe…

Thursday Evening Hike

On another recent Thursday we packed up in the late afternoon and headed up the mountain to hike. We went to Ouzel Falls trail and while we didn’t make it all the way to the falls, the trail is full of other water falls and it was just a great evening to get out and…

Happy 4th Birthday Paxton KaOn

Paxton turned 4 on June 10th! We started the day in usual birthday fashion with balloons and streamers up and he opened the presents from Clint and I and from his brothers and sister. We had played at a friend’s house a couple of weeks before and he really liked the Daniel Tiger trolley that…

Kids Journals…

So I realized this past week that the majority of my parenting lately has all been correcting and re-directing and in all honestly just trying to keep little people alive through each day. As I was reflecting on this on my way home from Bible Study I realized that I want my kids to know…

So We’re Not OK….

AND IT SNOWED. Their summer break starts on Thursday (the older boys finished up homeschool last week). SUMMER BREAK AND…
