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.

PreSchool Scissors Practice – Fun Friday Photos

PreSchool Scissors Practice

I wish I could remember where I got the worksheets for the scissor practice! I would like to see if there are more patterns to cut. I might just have to take a few minutes and make more myself.     Honey Nut and Wee Nut have made dozens of little scraps this afternoon...

Way-Back Wednesday

I had to check the actual day to make sure it was in fact Wednesday. It is. Then I was gonna do a Wordless Wednesday post, but then I realized that I haven’t taken hardly any pictures of anyone in MONTHS. What I did find was hundreds of photos from our pre-surgery Hershey Park...

Super Quick Surgery Update!

I can’t believe how much time has gone by since his surgery, and since we have been home! Owain is doing great, we were sent home only 6 days post fontan. Unbelieveable! His brothers planned a surprise party for him, decorated the living room and gathered all of his favorite things. Everyone was full...

It is Hard to Believe…

I just realized that today is Friday. That means that we are only 1 week a way from Owain’s surgery. Today though, we had a great time at the park, such a great time that I didn’t even think about what day it was once. I took hundreds of photos, way too many to...

Welcome to Hershey!

We haven’t even made it to the park yet and we are having a great time already! We are enjoying time together, time in the pool  and time forgetting about everything that has been weighing so heavily on us. When we checked into our room yesterday there was a little package waiting for us....

Owain Is So Much Like His Big Brothers

He hasn’t taped yarn to his face, or wrapped himself in paper like Wing Nut did, but I won’t be surprised when he does. Wee Nut has an awesome imagination and keeps me on my toes. For the majority of today, he wouldn’t answer me unless I called him Wall-e. He crawls around on...

I Love Me a Sprinkler Kind Of Day

There was so much to do today. Dishes, laundry, the floors, the bathrooms, pretty much the whole house needed to get cleaned before we go on vacation on Thursday. I started my day with coffee and every intention of avoiding all things involving cleaning. Instead I spent the day with the 2 younger kids...

A New Skirt For Honey Nut Sewn From Owee’s Jeans

Since I got my sewing machine last month I haven’t really done much with it. Mostly repairing clothing and blankets and making cloth napkins. Nothing too exciting. Nothing to complicated. I needed a bit of time to get to know my new machine and get back into sewing on a machine again. I used...
