The Good Stuff Farm-New Waverly, TX

About a 40 minute drive north of The Woodlands, there is a beautiful little house with a huge wrap around porch where you can sit in a rocking chair and watch the flowers grow. Our fun group of friends arrived early to get the history of how The Good Stuff Farm came to be. Jana…

Fourth of July Weekend 2021

Road trips with kids are not for the weary. Our second trip in our newly acquired recreational vehicle (RV) has been very memorable to say the least. We planned on traveling northwest to the beautiful hill country where the Guadalupe River winds through small towns and is shaded by giant cypress trees. What is normally…

The New Adventure Wagon

As happy as I was with my minivan, I knew it wouldn’t last. Those sliding doors and stow and go seating were so convenient. But a minivan cannot tow our rolling home towards our next adventure. We have been wanting an RV for over five years now. We have been researching different rigs to figure…

A week of rain May 2021

Monday was rainy and not very productive. We watched shows and tried to nap here and there. We did get a big surprise brought home that I will share more about at a later date. Tuesday the girls had their last day of gymnastics. Norah wanted to wear a leotard too. We do not have…

Welcoming Nicholas Fulton

I have always loved the name Ethan for a boy, it was our choice when we had our three girls. It is so funny to me that this time around the only name we agreed upon was Fulton. The Venerable Fulton Sheen is a Catholic Bishop who wrote over seventy books on the Catholic faith…

The week before we welcomed baby

I was preparing to write this on the Sunday I went into labor but here I am as a mom of four just wanting to remember the week leading up to meeting our handsome new family member. The entire week prior we had visitors showering us with love and gifts in anticipation for the new…

Preparing for baby four and home birth

I have the minivan, planned car seat and sleeping arrangements in my mind and washed all the things for a brand new baby. Now we patiently wait as I grow more sleep deprived with frequent trips to the bathroom preparing me for newborn feedings. I am almost 36 weeks pregnant and nearly full-term, which means…

Gardening with my Girls

Mia has been asking just about everyday for the past month to grow vegetables. She has been saving seeds from her fruits and vegetables. We told her she should use what we have if she is adamant on growing. She has currently covered my back porch in pots of dirt with her little plant babies….

Homeschool Snow Days in Texas 2.15.2021

This morning I woke up late and felt like staying in bed a little longer. This has been the strangest week in the history of Texas. Ryan stayed home because it was snowing, insert head exploding emoji. I was so excited I woke up at 3am to watch it snow on Monday morning. I opened…

Super bowl to Valentine’s 2021

I admit I may have watched five minutes of the game including commercials. I did not even know who was playing. We mainly were celebrating Ryan’s and his mother’s birthday. I was just there for the food and dessert. After Mass we headed to my brother and sister in laws house for family time. The…
