Memorial Day, Yard (not Yark) work, and my busy week.

My little chicks worked very hard yesterday for Memorial Day. No barbeque, no trips to the beach, no sitting pool babies worked hard yesterday. :) So I had to brag on their hard work done.

And what did I do? I deep cleaned my bathrooms....yeah, they looked pretty disgusting. This is what happens when time is filled with me out of the house. I've been so busy with dental and chiropractic appointments, that when I am pulled away from home, it eats up my time. No wonder I've been feeling so behind and unorganized...hmmmm. I am hoping I can start catching up some. I still have a couple of appointments this week....I have to go back to the dentist today to get my crown checked on and Shiloh has a football game tonight (he is in the Play offs for flag football--how cute is that?). I have to get adjusted at the chiropractor tomorrow afternoon and have to grocery shop for the week. And on Thursday, I have my usual outing-- taking Moriah to Piano practice. So you see how time can be filled up with all sorts of appointments and activities.

Lots of lots of careful planning needs to take place in my life or else life is a bit crazy here in this home. If some of you think I have it all together---well, think again!! :) I often wonder why God chose me to have so many children? Growing up, I was the very unorganized child in my family. I was the "who cares" type of girl. So becoming an adult and now having a large family, has really brought reality right at my front door. Thank God, the Lord is very patient with me and thank goodness for his Mercy.

Organization is always a chore but especially with little ones. I love to organize and it is getting more and more challenging!!! It looks like you have good helpers. Mine just help make messes :)

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
