Chores with Kids + Free Chore Chart

Hi Friends, today I wanted to talk to you about chores for kids! I think chores are a great way to teach kids life skills and how to be responsible.  Chores also give kids a sense of accomplishment when they finish a task. Even if your kids don’t enjoy doing chores, cough-cough…teenagers, they are still learning life skills. When we give our kids chores, I like to think of them in two different categories responsibilities & chores. Responsibilities are daily…


Naomi’s 3 Year Gotcha-Day Anniversary

Today, March 8th is Naomi’s 3-year “gotcha” day anniversary! Gotcha day in adoption terms means the day we got her. The day she came to be with her forever family! To be completely honest, it seems like she’s been with us for longer than 3 years and it’s hard to remember what it was like to be a mom of just two kids. The picture on the left was taken the day after she came to us, so March 9th,…

But let’s be honest, this is the Midwest and we are only at the end of February…so we still have a little while longer with warmer temps. I’m just hoping and praying for a warm Easter because, in years past, Easter Sunday is always freezing and we are running out,…


How to Make Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

I’ve made freezer breakfast sandwiches a few times now and they are such a lifesaver when it comes to a hot breakfast on school mornings! Whenever you are meal prepping food, it always takes a little bit of time on the front end because you are doing all the cooking, assembling and storing but, it’s so worth it. When it comes time to eat the food you prepped, all you have to do is warm it up and it is…


The Last 10 Things I Ordered on Amazon

Hi Friends! Today I thought I would do something a little different and share with you The Last 10 Things I Ordered on Amazon!   Printer Ink Printer Cartridge Ink is so expensive these days, so this time I ordered “Smart !nk” from Amazon, it works great for a fraction of the cost. Gaming Headphones for Bryce Bryce has been begging us for gaming headphones for his Xbox and we have said no for a long time. Now that this year he’ll…


Valentine’s Day 2019

Hey Friends, Happy belated Valentine’s Day!💕 I know this is a little late but, I forgot to share our day with you. Let’s see, Jarret was out of town working so he and I went out to lunch this past Monday. Bryce’s school doesn’t do Valentine’s class parties because he is in middle school but, they were allowed to bring in candy if they wanted to share with friends. I went to a “Gal-entine’s Day” lunch with a girlfriend and…
