Currently 7/17

I've have been doing a "Currently" post for quite awhile now.  It is fun for me to think about my week. To open up, and show bits and pieces of my daily thoughts, and life.


Celebrating...14 years of marriage to my best friend.  


End of Season...Softball is done the season.  Fun to watch how much those girls learned in the season.  


Cherries, Cherries, Cherries...My Father In Law brought me buckets full of cherries last week. So blessed that I didn't have to pick them, just pit them and either bake or can them.  I think I made 4 or 5 cherry crisps last week and canned 11 quarts of cherry pie filling! 


Remembering...After church, I took the kids to the spot that I got baptized.


Beautiful...Cloud was awesome Saturday night!  Ezra took this picture, I'm hoping to blows up okay for his fair project. 


Going to be yet another crazy summer week!

Word of the Year: Self Care Vol 17

Self Care Vol 17

What does self care mean?  Self care is any activity that you do voluntarily that helps you maintain your physical, mental or emotional health.  It can help you feel healthy, relaxed and ready to take on your work and responsibilities.

Let me be honest, this month has been crazy.  Busy schedules, vacation, etc.  Last night I took a few minutes to just sit on our deck.  It was hard to not dwell on all the work that I was seeing around but to just sit, enjoy the cool breeze, listen to the birds and just unwind. 


Realizing why I was having a hard time unwinding really helped.  After being on vacation, birthday, birthday party, my eating has NOT been what it should be and my body and mind is starting to let me know that.  So back to what my body prefers.  Cause if mama ain't happy....

Currently 7/10

I've have been doing a "Currently" post for quite awhile now.  It is fun for me to think about my week. To open up, and show bits and pieces of my daily thoughts, and life.

What an exciting whirlwind last couple weeks.  

Highlights from our Texas trip...

On the road!

We made such good time we had to 
have a picnic breakfast in the hotel parking lot! 

Reconnecting with family friends

Gulf of Mexico

Beautiful lake where we stayed! 

We added a couple kids to our crew, 
they had SO much fun together. 
And looking forward to a few more weeks
when they will be together again!

Christian had to take the kids to Whataburger to see
if his childhood memory was correct still.

4th of July Family Reunion

Sparkler fun!

Beautiful drive through the Ozarks

Hollywood Wax Museum Branson, MO

Cattle of Chaos &

Topped off with Mini Golf

Ezra turned 12 while we were gone. 
So yesterday we had an impromptu cookout/
birthday party for him.

Today we are just taking it easy and slowly transitioning back into 'normal' routine! Even with a crazy week to come.

Currently 6/19 & 6/26

I've have been doing a "Currently" post for quite awhile now.  It is fun for me to think about my week. To open up, and show bits and pieces of my daily thoughts, and life.


Apparently I missed posting my 'Currently' last week.  It was all ready so this week, two for one! 

Ball time...We are still in the ball season.  So thankful for toys, playground, etc during games!




Quality time...My two oldest 'Love Language' is Quality Time.  So when Grandma had the two little ones, we pulled out the game of Life.  



Cute...Look at these dresses my sister made for the girls!!!!! 



 Piano Lessons...Ezra has been in piano for awhile now and last week Hannah had her first lesson.  So blessed to have such an amazing teacher!


Swimming lessons....Three oldest kids are in swimming lessons last week and this week.  Fun to see how much they learn in just a couple lessons.  Zeke has started to go completely under which he won't do before.
