Happy first day if school!  2018-2019











Summer went fast and emotional hit hard once August hit.  It’s like I hit a little depression thinking about going back to work and the kids going back to school.   Yes, I am not like the other moms who are ready to send their kids back to their teachers.  I would rather keep them home with me and we could have more and more fun and memories.   I know, your all probably wondering why we don’t just homeschool.   The truth is we rely on my insurance and income.  The other thing we truly believe in is having our kids go make a difference in their schools.   They bring Jesus with them where ever they go.

Ways To Encourage Children To Be Healthy

Every parent is excited when they’re about to have a child. Then the little ones arrive, and we can’t wait to see them all grown up and out of the house, only for us to shed tears when it’s time for college. Throughout the lives of our children, we teach them to do things independently. It may be from the simplest things such as tying their shoes or more complex duties like teaching them how to use the coffee machine for the first time. We do all this because we want them to mature into happy, independent individuals; the truth is, we won't be able to guide them always.

Instilling habits in children transcends beyond teaching them to use cutlery; it also involves teaching them the right practices that can aid with a healthier or more productive life. Healthy eating habits are best learned as a child; thus, this article seeks to take you through some tips to help you start your children on the excellent meal train.

Start A The Right Time

The first essential tip instilling healthy hab…

How To Prepare Moving Your Family Home

Moving homes brings with it a mixture of excitement and anxiousness. While you are excited to be starting the next stage of your life, in a new area, not everyone may feel the same way, especially if you are moving as a family. So, how do you prepare your loved ones for the move? To start with, the whole endeavor will be much easier if you choose a new neighborhood that everyone likes and is much better than the previous. That being said, kids can still have a hard time adapting to a new school and making new friends, so it is always best to prepare them for it ahead of time. Further, you will have to pack your current home, and of course, hire movers that will make the whole process much easier for everyone.

Choosing the right neighborhood

Auster is a high-quality modular suspension training system.  This is easy to use at home and get a solid workout anywhere anytime!  Reach your peak- their motto on my unit!   I was super excited when my packaged arrived in the mail.   Since I was doing a review I didn't know what to expect.   I opened the package and everything was beautifully organized.  Then when I took the pieces out I found a mesh bag to keep all the pieces together since I knew putting them back in the box wasn't going to happen.  



I am a little embarrassed posting my pictures here... I had no make-up on and just workout clothes.   I look at these pictures and think what in the world... how did I gain weight during the summer?   That belly has got to go.... as a teacher I walk constantly in the schools so summer comes and my step count is so low.  Ok... I will stop complaining.   I should just say, thanks- to my 7 y…

How to Bond with Your Bump

Most parents will long for the day when their little bundle of joy arrives in the world. Despite your baby still growing inside of you, you might be eager to get to know your new son or daughter before you see him or her for the first time.

If you want to feel closer to your child throughout your pregnancy, here are some helpful tips on how to successfully bond with your bump.

Start Talking to Your Baby

It is believed your baby will be able to clearly hear your sounds, such as your heartbeat, from around 18 weeks. What’s more, he or she might also start recognizing voices from inside the womb. Research has also found that babies can also recognize their mother’s voice.

So, if you want to feel much closer to your baby boy or girl, start talking to your child. For example, you can talk to them about how excited you are for their arrival, or you could read your favorite book aloud to your growing baby.

British Soccer camps

British Soccer Camp WEEK!!!
Titus got to work on his soccer skills last week!   He is showing us so much talent!   He worked on passing a lot but he loves to dribble the ball himself.  

Titus got to meet four coaches that week.   2 were from England, 1 from London, and 1 from Brazil!   
The first day he was very timid and didn't want me to leave. I think it may have been due to heavy accents and Titus was confused at what the directions were.   By the end of the week, he was understanding much better.   It is amazing how challenging it can be when we live in a diverse world.  



Titus continued to have fun throughout the week.   I did notice a couple things they could improve on.  First, the ages groups could probably be divided a little bit more.  I think they could have used a few more helpers as well because it was hard to have a coach available for each game when there were more games then coaches available.  Those two things are hard to do.   I really enjoyed seeing the college-age…

Kiah- Last Thoughts on Raw Nibs #ChewyReview

If you haven't read my first two posts on Raw Nibs make sure you do here: Post 1 Post 2
We have used the Raw Nibs for the last month.  Every afternoon Kiah has had a 1/2 cup on top of her food.   She still is continuing to eat the Raw Nibs first!   She won't go back to her food until she is really hungry.   

Kiah, as you see above, was begging and begging for more Raw Nibs.   She sure has been trying to communicate and let us know she wants more.   
I think I like knowing that this is a quality product for my dog.   I really trust chewy.com and the products they sell!
