Hi and welcome! 

I'm a Momma, wife and artist. With 3 of my 4 kids almost grown, I can look back and share with you everything I learned on my favorite subject, raising a family. Like Albert Einstein said "Rejoice with your family in the wonderful land of life" and though things may get messy, you can't really go wrong. xoox



fun with my family

is this a verb in your house too?  I like me a good old fashioned wall calendar.  I don't use my phone. what if I lost it? which if you know me; is a significant possiblilty...so the ugly wall calendar it is.  Any cute ones out there?

SUMMER WISH LIST~here's what ours looks like so far....

Ugh, don't barf from the cuteness.  Can you tell which ones I came up with? (chess; cleaning..)

My favorite is the no fighting including sunblock

Here's what MY summer wish list would look like in photos.

...lots of sleeping and reading......but i realize .this is about as plausible as the no fighting about sunblock

hi! i found your blog through blogfrog; i only have 2 kids, and can't imagine calendaring for 4! But we try to stay close to home and that makes it easy. i love the fun things to do this summer and will check them out. here is my favorite....a car wash. drape a hose over an open garage door and have the kids ride their tricyles through it.
