My Life!

Wow things have been busy around here, but it's been a good busy.

This time of year I am really busy at school getting all the last minute materials covered so my kiddos are ready for state testing. We've practiced and I have seen so much growth, but April will be here before I know it so it really is crunch time! I like this time of year, but it is nerve racking too. We want to show everything they have learned, but they are still only 2nd graders! I wish I could take the tests for them, but I know they will do a great job!


We've also been busy at home getting the garden ready for planting. K and I have spent a lot of time battling weeds that the rains fed. I think we won! K has started tilling everything, so we might be able to put some rows of seeds down this weekend (if the rain stays away). I am so excited about our garden this year!! Last year we got a late start because the fence wasn't finished, but we're totally ready this year.

The boys have been doing great! N finished basketball last Saturday. He had a blast and gained some skills in the process. I loved playing basketball, so I am hoping he'll keep it up so we can play together! L and Z are doing their thing, computers! They crack me up on a daily basis. I am a lucky mama!

Last but not least I get to have another birthday on Friday! I am so grateful for everyday I get to spend with my boys! Getting to wake up in my life, crazy as it can get, is definitely a finer thing!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Until next time,


  1. Happy Birthday! Today was my daddy's birthday! (And my mom's due date with me was the 19th...unfortunately for her I was 2 weeks late...neat that we could have had the same birthday!!!)

    How exciting to start working on your garden...I haven't put any thought into mine at all! I would like to get something going this year...we shall see!

  2. I have never done a garden in my life and I am hoping to start one this year. Living in Alaska they say things grow very well here due to the 22 hours of sunlight! However, I think I need to start planning now so I will be ready to plant when the time arrives ;)

  3. Oooh, I can't wait to garden! I think it will be container only this year though. :(

  4. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! (Sorry I am late) I hope you had a blessed day!!!


  5. We just finished our 1st grader's basketball season, too! I kind of hated to see it end... so much fun. :)

    Happy Birthday!


Thank you so much for stopping by, I appreciate your words!
