My mother in law passed away just after midnight on Sunday morning. Her death was expected, but occurred more quickly than the doctors had predicted. She was admitted to the hospital Friday due to another UTI and severe dehydration. She was septic and her kidneys had shut down. The doctors recommended a slow rehydration process … Continue reading A Final Farewell
Hello Lovelies. Today I am not enjoying vacation. Today I am struggling with being 3 hours from home. Today my mom heart is breaking. My ex and I are no longer together for a reason. We speak, because we share adult children, two of whom still lived with him, until tonight. Or more honestly, they … Continue reading Deep Breathes
Up North Farm Market
While we were camping, we spent a couple hours at the Up North Farm Market. Inside they sell Michigan wines, homemade pies and souvenirs. Outside there is a barn playscape, a sandbox, monkey bars and tractors for the kids to drive. And of course animals to pet and feed. This baby cow was super hungry … Continue reading Up North Farm Market
Labor Day Weekend at Whiskey Creek
Today is the first day of the 3rd week of school for Hannah. That didn't stop us from officially closing out the summer over Labor Day weekend. There was dancing. And lots of laughing. These three cousins were pretty much inseparable for three days. Ava loves camping too. Grandma even drove the four wheeler a … Continue reading Labor Day Weekend at Whiskey Creek
I should be asleep right now. My body is tired and sore. My mind is pretty much checked out as well. Unfortunately, Hannah and Piper are too excited to sleep. Remember that calendar I showed you the other day? Pretty sure I jinxed myself, because it took less than a week of use before we … Continue reading Meet Elvis
Tuesday’s Thoughts: What Makes You Laugh?
Hello Lovelies, I have been feeling a bit over whelmed lately. Maybe it is the nervous energy I get thinking about seeing the doctor on the 15th. Maybe it is me pushing myself too much with all this writing. Maybe it is being virtually trapped with an energetic 4 year old. Either way, I think … Continue reading Tuesday’s Thoughts: What Makes You Laugh?
Monday is dragging. I will be happy when school is back open and the buses are running so we don’t have to drive Aly before dawn. Waking up that early means everyone needs a nap. The dog gets a nap. Daddy gets a nap. Baby Bear refuses to nap. This is mom life. Hoping your … Continue reading No Nap
It's December! We made it friends. After this we can say that we survived 2020 and hopefully came out of it better and more self aware than how we started. If you are like me, nothing has gone as planned. I tend to create a bucket list of things I want to accomplish each month. … Continue reading Christmas Memories
Hey Everybody! I'm sorry I haven't been posting homeschool lessons this week. We have had a minor set back. Miss Hannah has developed a fever of 100.4 and is complaining of a sore throat. So far, I think this is just a cold, but the fear is in the back of my mind. Either way, … Continue reading Homeschool Update
Daisies & Daughters, Parks & Flowers: Sister Pics
Hi Everybody! I missed sharing with you yesterday, but I was finishing up a project that I have been planning, prepping and working on for a couple weeks now. I can't wait to tell you all about it. Do you remember a couple weeks ago when I read The Bookish Boyfriends series? It was either … Continue reading Daisies & Daughters, Parks & Flowers: Sister Pics
