A New Adventure

A New Adventure

Back to school…. This can mean many things for kids and parents alike…Excitement, anxiety, fear, joy, reprieve (like break out the mimosas, I don’t have to listen to them fight all day!), and much more.  I know in my household the kids and I had mixed feelings of excitement for the new, but anxiety for...

To Read or Not to Read?

Hopefully, you know the answer to this question! I have to admit though, I am not an avid reader. As a matter of fact, I am terrible at taking the time to soak in a good book. As a child, I would read some, but it wasn’t my first choice. My mom was a kindergarten teacher,...

Sports in our House

Sports in our House

I often reflect on the busyness of my family’s schedule…this is the life we have chosen. Do I like being at home? Absolutely! And we do this, but I am an extremely social being, as are my kids; especially the younger two. My husband and I feel very strongly about teaching our children to have...

We have people over often, and are always looking for something or someone we can celebrate just to enjoy our loved...

Ba- Humbug!

Ba- Humbug!

The last few months for our family have been quite crazy. Between sicknesses and surgeries (both of which brought this Mama down), I can’t seem to get caught up with anything. Not cool when this Type A, busybody has taken on quite a few extra commitments while spearheading a house full of furry and non-furry kids. I...

Super Mom: When Mom is Down

This summer was full of all sorts of fun!  Lots of time with my family (especially my little munchkins) and friends!  There was one small hiccup though. We barely got to go anywhere. That summer vacation that we were looking forward to, not to mention how many friends shared their amazing adventures with us….well, this was...
