Father’s Day Baptism for Nicholas

This year of 2021 has been dedicated to St. Joseph by the Catholic Church. Joseph was a big contender for the name of our first born son. It was fitting that Nicholas’ baptism fell on Father’s Day and at Mass we consecrated ourselves to Jesus’ foster father and pray to him throughout the year and…

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…

Three weeks with Baby Brother

Yesterday we celebrated Mother’s Day with early Mass. I had to eat my cereal while nursing Nicholas in bed. I would normally get pancakes or avocado toast in bed but since we had lunch plans and Ryan signed us up to bring flowers to Mary before the start of church we needed to get out…

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…

Johnson City Baby Shower

It is hard for me to put into words the amount of love I have felt lately. I returned home last night to my husband waiting for me in the driveway. After the kids gushed over their exciting weekend with daddy, I tucked my girls into bed. Ryan had the best time hanging out with…

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…

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…

January Challenges

It is always a challenge to jump back into our daily rhythm of chores and homeschool after the Christmas holiday. It seems as if our celebrations last longer because of traveling to visit family and celebrations lasting well into January. My best way at getting back into a formation of learning is to just add…

Our homeschool Nature Group, The Woodlands, TX

You may think that homeschool children are not as socialized as mainstream students. You may think children with a home education are missing out on fun events and opportunities that may not be available in unschooling. If you hang out with us you may think again. My dear mom friends, along with our children and…
