Restart button!

This new chapter of life has started off with a nice BANG!
   We have home schooled for 5 years now, but this is all new. Since leaving Parkway UMC, God has opened doors, built relationships, and placed us in a perfect place. It just goes to show that God's plans are far better than we could expect.
  


HOMESCHOOL CO-OP!
There is a large number of homeschooling families in our new church home! We started up a small co-op for this school year…and so far, it is fabulous! This is such an answered prayer! Let's be honest…some days are perfect. No tears, compliant kids, get 'er done kind of days. Other days, are not so great. Tears, fights to get a sentence written, an unbelievable amount of interruptions, and frustration. (like today…) I cannot express how thankful I am to now have a faith based community of moms who understand and build me up! These ladies love my kids. They make an effort to strengthen my children with their words and actions. That blesses me! You see, here are my transparent thoughts- Right now, my husband and I have the privilege of choosing who influences our kids. We create the environment in which their foundation is built. This is no small venture. As our pastor said a few weeks ago, "Show me your friends, and I'll show you your future."


With that being said, I am super excited about our future!


There is way more to this adventure…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOELLE!!

My sweet little JoJo is 6 {six} today!! How'd that happen? I'm so thankful for her sweet spirit. She is always thinking about others and wanting to take care of everyone. She is a BRIGHT shining star!
I love the connection between her and Jesse Ava. 

My beautiful mess!



Happy Birthday to Joelle!

Great start to the school year!

Our year has started out great! 3 weeks in to Pre-K, Kindergarten, 2nd, and 5th grades! We've been to the zoo and Brazos Bend State Park so far. This week- for 9/11, we will be delivering cookies to the local police departments and fire stations.


I also have deleted my Facebook account. It's too time consuming... If you need me, call, text, email, or my blog are the ways to get ahold of me!

Family Time

We've been super busy and super sick lately...

Here's pics from our wekend with B, T & the girls :) We love having them here!




Hermann Park is a favorite for us. Pedal boats, playgrounds, picnics & the Houston Zoo right next door. These cousins love each other so much and we wore them out! :)
