Week in Review: May 28-June 1

(Ephee and Kole having fun during the game--LOL)

(Had to play on a very wet field--after 2 wks of rain)

(Holding up trophy's at the banquet for playing a good season)

(Before her appointment...she's happy)
(Not so happy :(...LOL)
(Baby girl get's her weigh in)

Had another fun filled week: Celebrating my hubby's birthday (sorry no pic..just had a short video but couldn't download), Shiloh's playoff game (who's team almost went to the Championship), Shiloh's flag football banquet, and Ana's 4 month appointment. I think there were some other little happenings but can't remember at the moment. Trying to make this post a little brief cuz right now I should be doing other things than typing on this blog. Yes, laundry, to name a few.....LOL

Donnie's birthday was so busy we had his Birthday dinner on Friday. I made his favorite: Meatloaf, with Mashed Potatoes and green beans on the side and for dessert...Apple Pie (Publix--no amazing creations at this point of my life) with vanilla ice cream (buy one, get one deal from Publix).

Shiloh played his last Playoff game this past Thursday. We played a tough team.--(the coach on the other team kept calling all sorts of fouls and "complaining" about tiny details...wasn't fun) They had us over by three touchdowns and he still was trying to beat us down :( Either way...Shiloh's team had a good team spirit.

Ana had her four month check up today (Monday). She is doing great. She weighed in at 12 lbs 10 oz, and about 24 inches tall. She is very proportioned with her height and weight. She falls around the (30% range for both height and weight). She didn't get vaccines this month (we usually wait till our babies are about 6 months--less stress on the baby and body), but the doctor visit knocked her out. She didn't enjoy getting undressed and having the Doc poke her all over her little body. Not fun!! I 'm with you girl!!! LOL. I am so glad she's been healthy. She's had a few colds but very blessed for healthy kids.

Coming up this week: I have a homeschool pool party Wednesday (that will be fun); I order my homeschool books on Wednesday (my book supplier is coming into town that day); My big homeschool evaluations are happening on Thursday afternoon (I'm a little nervous, but I know she (evaluator) will say I did great!--hopefully ); Friday, I go into to get my back cracked (this has become a weekly thing, since having 8 babies--I need some serious work); Saturday I have a friend and her whole troop (they have lots of kids also) coming over for dinner, it will be lots of fun and hopefully they can make it still; and Sunday--my day of rest and going to Church...

Until then...

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
