I’m being Manipulated By My Chickens

I have been a chicken mama and Learning The Chicken Ropes for a couple of months now and they are still so dang cute. It has been really cool to learn about them and I'm definitely looking forward to the eggs. 😊 I always wanted chickens and I now get why chicken owners get obsessed cause … Continue reading I’m being Manipulated By My Chickens

When Kids Take Care Of You

Sometimes, my kids surprise me. Well, not surprise, just impress. I already knew that William had a sensitive soul and that Lizzie has a huge heart but no idea how to express her emotions.

Homeschool, Houses, and Hamilton

I haven't blogged in a long time. It is a little ironic to me that the last time that I did post, we were officially in Covid life and, weeks and weeks later...we still are.

Since moving back to the Arlington … Continue reading Lunch At Mady’s: A Review

Teenagers And Ice Cream

Our kids are teenagers. Ok, Lizzie is technically not. She’s only 11. And Antwan has a few more months of not technically being a teenager. But, emotionally? Yeah, they are teenagers. One of the true bummers about that is their apparent inability to have any fun anymore. Not in the silly way that I have … Continue reading Teenagers And Ice Cream
