Today’s snack time…


Apple, clementine, kiwi, sun dried blueberries, micro greens.


Between babies, business and everything else piling up on my to do list, I’m BEAT!

Let’s recap:

Elliott turns six and all of a sudden has two loose teeth! I clearly remember loosing my first tooth and can’t believe we’re already here with him!


Amelie is taking things very seriously with her new baby sister. So seriously in fact that she took it upon herself to pick her up and bring her to Daddy and I. We were surprised, to say the least and well, grateful that she decided to pick her up within a few feet of us.


Malakai has turned two and is adjusting to his new position as big brother. He still refuses to use his words, and so would I if I had two older sibling to do my talking for me, but he has graciously blurted a few upon request.  


While still on the mend with about 30% to go, and to avoid “over doing it”, I am doing my very best to ignore the dust bunny infestation and focus on the trillion other things I have to do that don’t involve manual labor.  We’ve never enforced a strict schedule on our family and now that we’re four kids deep, homemaking, homeschooling and running our business, now seems like a good time to implement one.

Life is good.

What beginning?

day by day

I could take you back to the “beginning” but then I’d really just be taking you back. So lets begin now, because that’s what really matters. NOW.

Today was our first day off of the mountain since the hospital. Our, as in Rupi and I.  She will be 2 weeks tomorrow and I am on the mend.  We ran a few errands with the rest of our tribe and though we stayed within the walls of our car, it was just enough to cure my cabin fever.  NOW, I am exhausted and not in any position to help decorate the house for Elliott’s 6th birthday tomorrow.  Thank god for my better half, who some how manages to pick up my slack on top of everything else he has to do.

And NOW, I seem to have hit a road block. In other words, I’m ready for bed.
