GEARING UP FOR SCHOOL

The Mehaffey household has been gearing up for back to school later this month!  That doesn’t only mean school supplies etc., that also means getting the house organized and as user-friendly as possible.  When things in our house are organized it makes life sooooo much easier for us, especially because we don’t have time to be looking around for that other shoe that know one has seen.  You will be surprised how many times I have shown up to places…

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO THIS PAST WEEK…

We went camping!!! It was much needed time off and much needed family time. We are sssoooo busy right now on the dairy, especially in this summer heat, that it was nice to have a couple of days off to recharge our batteries. We only had four days so we made the most of it… Playdoh was a big hit with them! So easy to keep them entertained when they needed to slow down and take it easy for a…

It makes you WANT to put away groceries and put them away in their right containers. I have found in the last week or so that it is sssoooooo much easier to see what you…

SUMMER SCHOOL

I haven’t really shared with you what we have been doing for “summer school.” Now you hear summer school and are like, “it’s summer why do you make your kids do school?!?” Well you will be surprised how fast our brains forget. So anyway, we don’t do school eeeeveryday!  We have been doing school on average of 2/3 times a week and when I say “school” it’s not learning a whole lot of new things it’s mostly review so we…

CLEANING WATER TROUGHS

Yesterday we cleaned all the water troughs in the calf pens.  We generally clean their water troughs about every 7-10 days, BUT we have been doing it more frequently due to the extreme heat.  I have noticed the more we have been cleaning the water troughs the more water they have been drinking which is good for their digestive system, hydration levels and overall health. Bryce and I have took it upon ourselves to make it our job that we…

BEACH DAY

On Sunday we took the kids down to the beach!  We figured that we haven’t been to the beach in seven or eight years. Brother had been asking to go to the beach so he could play in the sand with his tractors of all things. Instead of just saying yeah sure lets go! We made a behavior chart, and he had to earn x-amount of stickers and he could choose splash pad or beach. Obviously by now you know…
