I can’t even believe that October is over. It was filled with so much we barely came up for air. Parenting and work are like that sometimes aren’t they? There is just ebs and flows that consistently burn months away. Between tutors, practices and escapes to Michigan there is very little time to appreciate theContinue reading
I am a mom of 6, 5 boys and 1 beautiful girl. We live life to the fullest, as best we can! Some days are good and some are bad but we push through and some how have a smile on our face at the end of the day!

The feeling of, you madeContinue reading

Here we are once again. Back to school time is vastly approaching and we are all thinking about what we need to buy to ensure our kids have a smooth transition out of flip flops and swimming suits into their new school jeans and tennis shoes.

It has been radio silence over here for a bunch of reasons. Mainly real life has snuck in and made all the decisions this summer. Some that I am very happy about and some not so much. Isn’t it funny how we transition into different seasons with the grand ideas of how things will happen,Continue reading
This was the last week of school for the kids who go to a building to learn. The kids at home will continue their studies with a little more relaxation for the next 3 months. My son Ryan told me this week that he feels like he doesn’t get the opportunity to go on field tripsContinue reading
