There is so much I could say about the newest structure recently erected on the back pasture of our property...childhood at its finest. It was constructed 100% by the boys (and their neighbor bestie) out of repurposed scraps and hinges after Boone got a drill gun. He even purchased an exterior gate latch from Lowe’s [...]
Monday, Day 1: By the end of the first 24 hours of quarantine, Dixie's already raided my closet multiple times, done up her makeup and put on a fashion show. She kept asking, "When I grow up, and I'm like 16, can I borrow this?" ￼￼She thinks I should wear the pink shoes in Hawaii [...]
It's March! Month three brings us date three. Last night, Boone said he wasn't feeling all that well. Mr. Social very rarely gets sick, so I decided to keep him home from school today, just in case he was starting to come down with something. When I got home from dropping the other three off [...]
This week Johnny and I sat down and made lists. Goals for our year, long term goals etc. Personal, marriage, family, financial, travel. I mean not to brag, but I already checked 2 things off of my list! ✔️ Find a local MOPS group to join ✔️ Start monthly kid dates We decided to alternate [...]
She woke early, put on tights, had me paint our nails a sparkly "Ruby Red" because, ya know, it's festive. Our sweet girl loves gettin' dolled up and today was a great excuse: 1st grade field trip to see a local production of A Christmas Carol! She wanted to send pictures daddy so he could [...]
We found a huge box of books in the garage that hadn't gotten unpacked yet, so it's basically like Christmas over here. Speaking of Christmas, "Rambo" over there is getting the BESt gift in 101 days... I love how even the boys are so sucked into Angelina Ballerina...it must be Johnny's riveting voices.
When your school mascot is Thor, you know it's gonna be a good year! This girl was so excited about school, until we started walking towards her teacher. Change is hard, little girl, but you got this! The school we choiced into had a full 3rd grade roster, so we enrolled Hudson in our zoned [...]
About a month ago, I started planning Dixie's 6th birthday party. It looked like this would be our third consecutive year she would choose "sequin glitter unicorn" UNTIL we were browsing for party dresses. (With 80% of our clothes packed for the move, we decided she could get a new birthday dress.) Then she found [...]
"Dad, I can count in my head. (Long silence) So? Can you hear me?" - Dixie. Oh, then Dixie illustrated us all while Crosby hit a milestones.
