Day 2: African Safari Wildlife Park

Well, I have had some time to process the fact that the kiddos have HFMD.  I have contacted all the kiddos parents who planned on attending the b-day party on Sunday and explained the situation. I changed our “yes attending” R.S.V.Ps for all immediate playgroup meetups to “not attending”. And my hubby has contacted the parents of children our […]

Kings Island,I-75 Scavenger Hunt, and a Lesson on Love

For Father’s Day this year instead of doing the typical backyard BBQ my Dad invited the entire family to Kings Island for a fun-filled Family Day. What a Dad, right!?!

Book Club: What should we read next? Need suggestions Please!

Our book club is at that emotional sector of our current book; where the anxiety peaks just before the end of a book…do you know the feeling?  The feeling of waiting hours before you read the last sentence of the book because you don’t want it to be over? Then, after finally reading that last […]

Ice Cream Social

One of our local Metroparks held its annual Ice Cream Social yesterday.  The kiddos were so excited all day, eagerly waiting for 6pm to roll around. I on the other hand was trying my best to come up with a backup plan. See, the weather was definitely not cooperating. It either rained or threatened rain for most […]

Reading Eggs Review

Kaitlyn’s Cottage

After reading the Shock family’s story and how they have handled life with such grace and how they have counted their blessings through adversity I couldn’t wait to share….
