Hunting: Teaches our family about life, survival, safety, patience, and love.

This past weekend was Youth Day for our young hunters.

Youth day is an important time for our youth to get acquainted with the full aspect of the woods and the outdoors. 

….And our Cheekies was no exception!


Her daddy was super ecstatic to take her out to the woods and between the two of us, he is more of a father to teach our kids patience in the woods!

While Chelsea was super excited and couldn’t contain her excitement, they only saw two bucks and a doe after they were finished with their hunt.

This little spunky six year old learned more in one day than a child who plays on their iPhone/tablet for a whole week!!


Regardless of how you feel about guns and your second amendment right, please note this..

Vote for someone who will allow families to keep their right, continue to provide for their families, and learn love, survival, and patience.

Cheer Mom Status🎀🐾🏈

Never in a million years would I have ever imagined turning into a Cheet mama! Never would I have imagined putting makeup on my beauties and entering them into beauty pageants and cheerleading. However, I have found that when you’re with the right crowd of similar cheer mama’s and grandma’s it makes your life ten times better!


Another warm exciting cheer year for these fine ladies and myself! We support our kiddos, cheer them on, and encourage our kiddos to  have fun and follow through!

Last night was Rec night and once again, we had a blast with the girls💜 Our girls were able to cheer with the SRHS Varsity Cheerleaders!


Our girls had a blast and the moms had an even greater evening! We don’t push our girls to do something they don’t want to, I truly feel that they are surrounded and encouraged by a loving support system that allow them to let loose and have a blast!


Thank you so much to our SRHS varsity cheerleaders for allowing our #bulldogs to cheer and support our current and future Eagles! 


I never imagined I would turn my girls into a cheerleader, but they love it and have fun and that’s all that matters to me!! 


Cheerleading has taught my girls so much about friendship, caring, teamwork, and being an encouragement to one another!

We also have the best coaches around! We aren’t competitive, we just want our girls to have fun and enjoy the life long experiences they are learning in the process.

School, work, family, and Life.

The summer ended with a small family trip to the beach, Assateague Island to be exact. The kids and I had a blast with the family. It was a wonderful way to end the summer season for us!


The school year started and we struggled to get into routine again as all three kiddos started school.  

Walker started his first year as a role model to special needs kiddos and has been doing a great job! We are so proud of him.

As a mom I was not prepared, physically and emotionally, for our last child to “flee” from the house and to become a “big boy”. It has put a lot of strain on me, but currently it has taken me a long time to adjust!

We now have a second grader, a first grader, and a preschooler full time at school. 

I stressed for the longest time about Walker going to school and surprisingly he has been awesome in school with no difficulties! 

The girls are doing well academically and are both way above where they need to be, which makes me a proud mama!


We were able to start enjoying the cooler weather that is FINALLY coming! We spent the day on a family picnic touring the blue ridge parkway! We really enjoy our family time!💜


The girls participated in their first ever pageant and we were so grateful to have my sister in law and cousin help with hair and makeup and a special shoutout to grandma for helping out with the dress, the day of the pageant:) 

The girls didn’t win, but it was an awesome learning experience and truly an eye opener to get them to open up publicly! We will have awesome luck next year!

Our kids recently celebrated grandparents day and it was even more special that their great grandmother was able to attend the special event💜


Thanks to this woman, I’m so happy with a new church!! It’s such an awesome movement when the family can agree on something! Thank you Mrs. Dana for not giving up on me:)

That’s about it for right now, and while I understand that three kids may be nothing for a mama to 4,5,or 6, it’s a bunch for me and that’s the adventure that was planned for me and my family!
Until next post,
Love,

In need of my Shepherd: A mother’s struggle with ADHD


This evening I put off my bible study until the last possible minute and spent every last minute on social media because I knew somehow in someway my bible study would speak to me and sure enough it has…

As private as it may seem, I’ve been struggling with Kaylee’s ADHD for quite sometime. The past week has been torturous for me as a mom, even. Tonight’s bible study reminded me that I needed a shepherd, which is why I chose this picture of the girls looking at the sheep, I need to need my shepherd as much as the girls wanted their own sheep. 

As a mom we worry so much about our kids that we forget that we need to care for ourselves and we need a protector. I was also reminded that I need someone more stronger than me to lean on because I need to shed a few tears or because I don’t have all the answers. 

In my low times, I sometimes forget that I have a loving God who has a plan for me and my family all the time, not just whenever.

I was super excited to have an amazing support of “sheep” tonight to comfort me when I needed it most. Whether you think you know about ADHD or not, personally makes me feel like the worst parent ever. Having community support made my heart happy knowing many friends were supporting me and praising Kaylee and supporting us emotionally💜

I feel our world would be such a better place if we all uplifted each other constantly. It felt great to shed tears in front of my friends because I was so concerned about my sweet baby girl. 

So grateful for my group of mamas that stood by me and praised me in my time of need! Do you have your mama Circle? If not get one! 
Thank you mamas!!
