A fun day!

Yesterday was such a fun day.
We went on over to the museum of Florida natural history.  
We haven't been in months maybe even a year.  

This museum is about 15 minutes from home and free of charge.
I have no idea WHY we haven't enjoyed it much more? 

Donnie joined us and we made a family date out of it.   
The kids all had fun searching for something to "learn" about.  

Daddy doing what he does best....TEACHING

Moriah telling the boys what exactly they were looking at

Shiloh my scientist

Cautiously entering the dark cave
Curious Kole
lots to see
Lots to learn
Playtime in the playroom
Kole and I had a blast playing this giant matching game
Today I received my comforters from my sweet friend.  
She gave me three comforters,
lots and lots of towels, 
sheets, 
a nice lamp (on the right),
and  
the decorative planter (it sits to the left of my bed). 

Here is one of the sets I received.  
Ok....Ok...
so I am NOT a person who has any decorative flair.
I just threw everything together...
I know...I know...
I need help.  
ha ha. 


PS...

My heart is a bit heavy today.
We are still not sure what our living arrangements for next month will be. 
Please pray that I will have peace in my heart to be content in whatever may take place.  

But you know what???
God continues to bless in amazing ways.

Yesterday...
Someone blessed us with a few hundred dollars

Today...
We received a nice letter from Donnie's grandma with $150 

Wow--wee!!  
I am humbled and thank God for His love towards me and my family.  
He is truly an amazing Father! :)

I see all of this as supernatural!!

I love field trips and this one looks like fun!

So I've been catching up with your blog. I didn't see a post regarding the results of your kid's Color Guard competition. You'll have to let me know! I've been wondering what happened with that. Did they have a good time in Oregon?

Love your new bed. I'm so sorry to hear things are incredibly tight for you guys. Praying God will give you some relief soon. It is so neat to hear of the way God is blessing you guys in the big and little things.

Blessings,
Jackie

That's my prayer too that I may be content and faithful in whatever God brings my way. If you have that attitude it will go well for you no matte where you live sweet friend!
I loved your fun day and especially the pic with the whole row of your own kids. Don't you just love days like that. I could do that every day!!:)
What a fun day!

Your bed looks lovely! I think you did a great job!

The last part reminded me of something...when we were in the thick of our trial and I would start getting full of worry and anxiety, I would remember that song by Mercy Me (it's actually a scripture in Revelation) "Hold Fast Help is on the way..." God knows! Still praying!

love and hugs,

I love the comforter and think you did a great job putting it all together! The color of the comforter against the headboard is gorgeous!

Praying for you, that your heart would be content and at peace.
That place looks like fun! Your kiddos are so cute, Girl!

And, yep, once again, it is proven we are sisters, because I have no decorative flair either, lol. But, the comforter and lamps are really pretty! So, I am so impressed!

I am lifting you up in prayer, Mama, as you trust the Lord to show you what he has for all of you regarding the living arrangements! He is constantly showing himself faithful, isn't he?

LOVE,
Veronica

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 rushing...kids 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
