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…

Maiden Voyage to the Beach

Tent camping has always been one of our favorite ways to relax and enjoy each other. The more remote and without amenities, the better. “Roughing it” just made our adventure more exciting. The variables of bad weather were just part of it. We are officially glampers and I couldn’t be more excited. Ryan and I…

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…

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…

Easter 2021

This year I really wanted to savor this entire week leading up to Easter. I desired to be absorbed by the meaning of this most wonderful gift of heaven given to us in the most selfless of ways. We attended mass on Holy Thursday and participated in the washing of the feet. We attended mass…

Norah turns TWO

We celebrated this cutie by bringing her to the zoo on the Sunday before her birthday. We visited the zoo in January and her reaction to all the animals was just the best so we knew we had to bring her back so daddy could experience the zoo with her. Norah enjoyed every moment, she…

Baby Williams is a …

I knew the gender of our first two beautiful girls. With Norah we waited to be surprised at her birth. I was so focused on getting her out and into my arms, it didn’t even occur to me to check to see is she was a boy or girl. The midwives had to ask me…

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…

One year in our home by the creek

Is some ways it seems as if this year has flown by and in others it seems as if we have lived in this house forever. We moved on February 1, 2020. Little did we know that this house would become a place of peace from a world in panic, an area to gather with…
