We are all VERY excited, clearly, to be starting school again. We have a FIRST grader!!! A KINDERGARTENER!!! And HEY we’ll call him a preschooler AKA participating in the art of distraction ;) Goodness as intimidating as it is to homeschool, I can’t adequately express what an honor it is to get to teach them. The conversations I get to be a part of just melt my heart. We have our Voice of the Martyrs […]

What do you think?

Last year, something happened that seemed to flip a switch in my brain. I’m not sure precisely what it was, but what I think it might have been was, my cynical or rather, extra logical husband had a rapture dream and the very next morning the fires started – which you know, was just one of the most surreal, eerie events I’ve ever experienced. Remember the crazy dark sky in the middle of the day […]

My Story

This week in our Bible study we are supposed to share our story with someone which, considering the masks and lockdowns and screaming children that seem to always be accompanying me, has proven quite difficult. So I thought I’d share it on here. I’ve always struggled with telling it because I don’t feel like there is much to it – simple version: I grew up Christian, the end. But the truth is, I consider myself […]

Shall we take a stroll through the weirdness that this spring and summer have been? What have you been up to? We’ve missed you so much! Mostly all of our spring was spent sunbathing naked and watching this bird. Or hotel of birds. My goodness those guys were busy. They went in and out in and out all day it seemed! And I STILL never got a good picture. Oh but how I love spring […]

family days / home / the daily life

Because it’s one of my most favorite days of the year! Just lookit these babes all snuggly in the morning watching the parade from on top of their brother And because I clearly can’t get enough of these faces.. Or these little heads.. They are my favorite. Also, Fall flowers are my favorite so let’s take a quick pause to look at 292 pictures of these beauties! I felt like making a cornucopia this year… […]

I suppose all my posts from here on out will be catchup posts ;) I’m currently trying to find activities that can be done from a lying down/ hacking up lung position. My voice left me last night and has been replaced with something that one might expect from a demonic man, causing Greg to beg the question, “tell me truthfully, have you welcomed Satan into your heart?” Not kidding. He’s so freaked out by […]

Oh look who’s behind again! Christmas was just so lovely, I just don’t want to forget! So here’s a few hundred photos from then till now ;) Something about this Winter was just so magical! I don’t know if it was the expectant feeling of welcoming a new little one any day or just the Christmas spirit in the air but it sure was lovely! The kids and I baked almost every day. I gained […]

Can you hardly even believe it!? Did anyone else think that last week in November was the looooongest week ever!? It just went on and on…. but now December is here and we can officially celebrate all things festive! Greg and I even got to sneak away for a mini babymoon before our last little one gets here! I realized there is a reason they say don’t go on such trips in your last month… […]

terrific trips / the daily life

Aaaand mostly cause those are the only photos I’ve taken lately… Ohhh Halloween… I always feel the guilt creep in about two days before and go through the internal dilemma of whether or not to actually do something this year… will the kids even wear the dang costumes… do I really want to have that much candy in my house cause well let’s face it, the lady with zero self control is always the one […]

A while ago, the kids and I went on a walk that strangely represented life for me, right now. It was a gorgeous day, we went to my favorite place – the ocean, and somehow, everyone was so miserable it was almost funny. Lesson learned – always bring the stroller and MY GOSH I wish I had a stroller to carry me through this last bit haha. I keep telling Greg, I’m just done. I […]
