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.

Dissecting Crayfish at Classical Conversations Homeschool Group

    I was room mom for Wee Nut’s ABC class the day our Classical Conversations group dissected Crawdads. The group of 4-5 year old boys were all super excited and not one bit squeamish. My Little Owee was not really sure what to do, but when we found the Heart, his excitement level...

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...
