What I want my kids to remember…..

I decided last week that I was going to try and actually write something every day for the next few weeks and see what it does in my life and schedule and to the blog as well. So if I end up writing a whole lot of nonsense, then just know it’s because I just wanted to try something out.

Anyway, since I’m here – I might as well tell you about the last few days and just what’s in my bubble. (which is what this place if for really, right?) Continue reading “What I want my kids to remember…..”

Youth Camp for my 10 year old?

As many of you may well know – our oldest is now at an age where she’s old enough to do a lot of different things and her brother and sister are not. There’s a lot of little things that I’m not going to mention because it’s nuts how many there are but, one of them is experiencing Camps. Specifically church or youth camps.

2 things I need to be – to my teenager

Over the last few days, I’ve just had the awesome opportunity to interact with various age groups of young people. Not in major ways, but in simple little things like driving them from A to B and just having them pass through our home and observing them at various events and chatting.

Youth Day + Father’s Day = Stressed out!

Youth day and Father’s day came and went without a moment to actually breathe in and take in the moments.

Our youth day was filled with my oldest having a gymnastics competition. I spent the hours leading up to it, making her a leotard. (I can hear you saying, “you’re nuts!” – so did a lot of other mommies) I’m the type of person that when there’s money to be saved – I’m going to save it! I’ve spent the last few months trying to master the art of making leotards for my girls. The reason being, that when bought off the rack, those puppies are EXPENSIVE!!! It’s like buying a nike shoe for a 6 year old – who is more than likely going to blow through the thing in like 2 months…… this is my exact sentiment towards leotards.

Our 10yr old Speaking up to an Adult

I know it’s Thursday, but I’ve been really wanting to share this part of our week with you ever since it happened. It’s one of those that has Tim and I sitting back and really glowing with pride over our daughter. Yup, it’s one of those brag moments again. Similar to the one Iraina had last year.

This time it involved Aislyn, our 10 year old daughter. Continue reading “Our 10yr old Speaking up to an Adult”

3 Ways I Honour my Children Online

Over the last few months, I’ve really been stumped with this whole “protecting your kids” online kind of vibe. It’s so scary to think there’s all of these sad, sick people out there that prey on innocent little people. I hate that I can’t just “take a pic” of my kids and freely share it with the world without thinking about how much of their body are they showing and who is in the pic with them (so that no one can photoshop themselves into or out of the pic). Continue reading “3 Ways I Honour my Children Online”

Just another day in our lives

You know that thing that people call a “creative block”? I think I have had one of those lately – but in a strange way. Why I think it’s strange is because I have so much going on in my head and there’s too many projects to be made and blog posts to be written that I’ve actually over thought my way out of actually writing anything down or making anything.
