Welcome to my Blog. The happy little place where I am able to be me. I like to post about the adventures that I have with my beautiful girls and husband, aka life. I am an imperfect follower of Christ, a first year homeschooling mom, a lover of baking, cooking... and eating, a crafter, an athlete, a car girl and a penny pinching thrifty shopper. I always like to refer to myself as a jack of all trades, ace of none kind of gal.
I was married to my husband Russ on August 18th, 2007
2 Months after we were married we found out we were expecting our first child.
This picture was taken when I was 20 weeks pregnant. Yes, that is right 20 weeks! I was definitely not small.
We immediately planned for me to not return to work after the birth of our next child. So we saved and pinched every penny we could to make it happen!
In the winter of 2011/2012 we started building a new home. This is the first family picture we took inside.
Marissa started Pre-K the following fall. Our plans were to do private pre-K and send her to public school Kindergarten the next year. Then another unexpected change came. We felt God calling us to do something we never thought we would do, home school.
So, in the fall of 2013 we started Kindergarten at home.
We are currently wrapping up our first year of home school, and we love it. We know that it was the best choice for us.
Even through all of the unexpected events and plans getting changed we know that we have never once been alone. We have a loving, patient and gracious God who is pursuing us always and has never once left us.
We are blessed.
