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.

Deck The Halls and Trim The Tree

It is really starting to feel like Christmas in the Shenandoah Valley. Last night we got our first snow that wasn’t more than a couple of flakes floating around for a few minutes. The kids woke up to a ground covered with snow. They spend some time outside today, but it was super windy...

When is a Christmas Tree, Not a Christmas Tree?

The Saturday after Thanksgiving is the day that we usually go out and get our Christmas Tree. It is a budding tradition that I started a few years ago when I realized that traveling hours with many young children was not the best idea in December. When I decided that I was staying home...

Black Friday Online Shopping, Cuddling on the Couch

I am not one to head out first thing in the morning to wrestle with strangers trying to get the best deal on Christmas presents. I like to sleep in, eat left over dessert for breakfast and sit around all morning long watching Christmas movies with the children. And that is exactly what I...

Where is Blogger the Frog? He is in the Snow Covered Shenandoah Valley!

Where is Blogger the Frog? He is in the Snow Covered Shenandoah Valley!

A few weeks ago, we had another storm, I finally got around to posting pictures of the kids playing in the snow from that storm just the other day in this post.  It turns out there was a traveler who had spent time in Mexico with my bloggy friend Jenn. After that he went...

Another Virginia Snow Storm, Another Post Full of Snowy Pictures

This is the storm from last week that kept my public schooler home from Friday to Thursday. Every once in a while a scooper comes along and pushes some snow around. The plow only drove down our street once, many of the streets are 3-4 inches deep with ice, full of pot holes and...
