To our men and women who have, are, and will serve….we salute you and give thanks that you answered a call to duty to protect our great nation. A man’s country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.(…)
We are currently learning about reproduction for science. This past week one of the things the kids were doing was filling out information about when they were babies. Which led to questions like, “Mom, how long was I when I was born?” Sadly I remember birth weight and date easily, but length, and exact times(…)
I couldn’t be more proud of Chloe. At 13 she is proving to be so much more than I could have asked for. From the way she just digs in and helps me at just the right moments, or how hard working and reliable she is, but most of all I am proud of how(…)

Last week Jayden got a soccer ball kicked into his thumb while playing outside with his cousins and a neighbor friend. He came in asking for ice and acting fine, just stating he got a ball kicked into his hand and that his thumb hurt. I didn’t think too much of it. The next day(…)
While on vacation this year I invented my own style…toe sand! I painted my toenails, but then must have gotten near the sand too soon so it stuck to my polish! It made for cool textured, slightly glittery toenails!
This is a moment I caught between Jayden and our dog Oscar. The kids love our dogs so much they are often overly affectionate. This was just too priceless not to share! My husband is known for his….let’s just say….inventive wrapping jobs at holiday time. My dad purchased a gift certificate for my(…)
