Dusting off the Keyboard

Yes it has been a long time since I blogged.  


  
Why?

I don't know exactly.  
I guess I just never made the time to type away my thoughts of life and such. 

And of course just the busyness of raising eight children.  This can take a bit of time.



There is always some sort of 
question asked, 
problem to solve, 


teen issues to handle, 


 bickering to break-up.  


  


But....

There is always time for fun!!  


  
Enjoyment!!

Everything nice!


I've decided that if I make my posts short and sweet,
 with meaning,
maybe I will make the time to blog.  

It's sort of like jogging 
(something I have been doing for some months now).

Just the thought of going jogging 
and
the time it will take to run those miles.....
it makes you not want to jog at all.  

That's how I've felt with blogging.  
I tend to be long winded and want to write EVERYTHING on my mind 
then realize how long that just might take....

 I end up not blogging at all.  

So....
if I tell myself that I will keep it short, sweet, and simple 
I just might accomplish a little bit of blogging 
(and maybe some jogging)
now and then. 

No promises to everyday.  
But we'll see.  

Hmmmmm?


Day 2 at school for my crew.  
(Day 2...for my crew...at skoo)
some rapping for ya..
 
They couldn't wait to get up, get dressed, and out the door into the Tuttle Bus.  


Yep...they were so happy to be at school.  

 How does mommy feel today?

Very EXCITED about my new season. 
 I am filled with joy knowing my wee ones are in good hands and being educated.  

There is something satisfying knowing that my kids are being productive and not having to wait for me to teach them "school".  

That's how it has felt for a few years now. 
 Feelings that I wasn't teaching them enough and they were not being fulfilled.  

God knows.  
He knew what I needed and he made it possible us all. 

And....
Shhhhhh.....

He may also have something for me around the corner.  
Actually.....I know He does!
 
But....
 this tad bit of information will have to come at another time. 
 Confidential information.....

How exciting! Can't wait for the news, mi amiga. I'm so happy for ya. Yes, short and meaningful is helpful because you're a mother and your readers will probably all be too and make it that much harder to not come and take a little peak to see how you're doing. God bless you.

I'm so glad you're making an effort! :)
La familia es muy armonioso, es una familia sustituta de Dios, por lo que debemos estar agradecidos.

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
