I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

Easter Tree! Seriously, we do have every intention of taking the tree down. We think about it every weekend. There is always something else that ends up being so much more important… At one point there were actual valentines on there, but the kids have squirreled them away. Happy Easter Tree!

Thankful Thursday and an Owee Update

Thankful Thursday at The Nut House

OK, so I know that we didn’t spend that much time in the hospital. We have definitely spent more time there before. Somehow it doesn’t matter how long you spend in the hospital, it always feels like so much longer. The nights in the emergency room felt like days! One night the nurse sat...

He got up several times and slowly walked around or sat quietly on the floor playing trains with his brothers. He was still having a hard time breathing and...
