IMG_4936
Tomorrow is Avery’s first day of homeschool preschool and I’m so excited! I’m glad that she’s doing homeschool this year and next year because I don’t like being without her! She truly feels like one of my limbs so without her I go crazy! Last year I would do a little bit of learning time with her and mainly read lots but this is the first year that we have an actual curriculum, schedule and corner for school. Continue reading

2nd Trimester Recap!!

I am 28 weeks and officially in the third trimester! I feel like this pregnancy has flown by! (It’s probably because I’ve been go go go this whole time haha). Right now Brooklyn is the size of a coconut and I have gained 17.5 pounds so far. My belly isn’t tiny to me but often people think it’s small because she’s so low and my belly starts pushing out under my pants line where most people don’t see it. In both my pregnancies my weight has gone mostly to my sides and thighs unfortunately but I’ve learned to accept it and enjoy my pregnancy! Continue reading

2 Year Anniversary!!

Josh and I are celebrating our 2 year anniversary yippie! Although we’ve only been married for 2 years I can’t remember what life was like without him.

We didn’t have much of a honeymoon phase because we were already full time parents but our lives together have always been exactly how we would want it.

How I manage my many jobs!

Being pregnant, raising and teaching a preschooler, being a good wife, working part time from home and managing a household is EXHAUSTING! I will never say my job is easy but it’s the best job in the whole world! I wear many different hats and the best way I make sure everyone is happy and that I get everything done is by being organized. I’m naturally a very organized person and when you are a mom being organized makes things go a lot smoother! I also ask for God’s grace whenever I am feeling overwhelmed and I just focus on the important things.

I had dreamed about being pregnant with our second baby and growing our family for awhile and now that’s it’s actually happening I couldn’t be happier! Continue reading

We are having a girl!

We are having another girl!! Our household of 1 boy and 2 girls is changing to 1 boy and 3 girls! (Poor Josh is way outnumbered haha). Josh wants to for sure have 1 boy so it looks like we will eventually be having a total of 3 kiddos! Luckily we love being parents above anything else. We found out less than a week ago that we are having a girl and are already starting to imagine what having 2 girls will be like. Continue reading

Spring Bucket List

Spring is finally here! I love winter because of the holidays but come January I’m ready for the warm weather. In Tennessee spring weather is usually sunny days, stormy nights, highs of 70’s and lows of 50’s. It’s perfect!! With all this perfect outdoor playing weather I thought I would write out some of the things we want to do this spring and some activities to do with your kiddos! Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
