Airport Field Trip

I love homeschooling. I really really do. It is not easy but not once have I thought about sending my kids to school. I’ve seriously been preparing for homeschooling since Timmy was in the womb. Lol. I really feel like its one of the many blessings that God has put in my life. 

We belong to a couple of co-ops who do amazing field trips. This one by far has been my favorite. Missionary Flights International is a company that partners with missionaries to fly people and supplies to Haiti & the Dominican.

They started by showing the kids a video of the needs in these 2 places. Timmy was so heartbroken by it. Just today he said he needs to get to work so he can buy more tents for the kids who have nothing.

Then they gave us a tour of an airplane. Timmy was terrified but he eventually got into it. 

The pilot showed them the cockpit and let them sit in the the pilot seats.

Then they let them get in an airplane fire truck. The kids really loved this. 

The last thing we did was watch planes take off and land.

How sweet is this photo. Timmy is so over protective of Grace. He had to put his arm around her be ause he didn’t want her running off.

Sweet Memories

Timmy is so sick with a stomach bug. Gracie is so sad she can’t kiss him so now they’re blowing kisses back and for to each other.

Caught Grace having a tea party with her stuffed animals.

Grace is so proud that I let her hold Lydia.

Timmy is outside on the swings and I can hear him all the way inside singing his heart out. That alone is sweet. But the cherry on top is that he’s singing, “The cross has made you flawless.” I mean louddddd super loud. Hope my neighbors enjoy the free concert.

Grace is also singing.. from the toilet. Her lyrics a tad different, “A babys gotta do what a babys gotta doooooo.” We started watching Rugrats so she must have picked that up from little Tommy. I love that show. Like I enjoy it for real. I actually prefer it to most adult shows these days.

Painting our nails together. Doesn’t get any  better than this.

This chick is tough 😂

So my Dad told me his New Years Resolution was to play more with kids. How seeet is that.

We bought Sea World passes for our friends and made these hand print party animals.

Look closely and you will see a lizard resting on a blanket all tucked in after his nice warm bath. My son is the ultimate lizard lover.

Happy 1/2 Birthday Baby Girl

The more babies you have the faster they grow. My sweet baby is 6 months! I’m already planning her 1st birthday. She is such a blessing. She is the happiest baby ever & boy does she love her mama.

Its like we are still one body. Literally she wants to be attached to me in someway all day. Right now she has her hand over my face. And I think by your third kid you just don’t mind because you know how fast they grow. 

Lydia is 18 pounds 27.5 inches. She’s wearing 9 months clothing and size 3 diapers. No teeth yet & praise Jesus because she is a biter. She’s still nursing like a champ. I’m scared for teeth because her gums inflict enough pain already.

She’s sitting up by herself. She’s attempting crawling but so far she only goes in reverse. Slow down missy!

She says mama & dada ❤️

She blows kisses ❤️❤️

So far she’s tasted bananas, zucchini, applesauce and oatmeal.

I love taking pictures of her. She smiles with her whole being especially her eyes.

She scratches to fall asleep, could be the sheet or my arm, she doesn’t care. Ouch!

Her baby babble is so sweet. She already loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. She naps in her swing and sleeps snuggled up to mommy at night. I love it. I remember how I slept with Timmy & Gracie and I just can’t believe those days are gone. 

Timmy & Gracie just adore her. Its hard to keep them off of her. Gracie sings her songs  about how they are best friends that makes my heart burst. Timmy comes in our room every morning and greets her with a good morning sweetie pie. I have the sweetest kids.

Timmy is such a proud big brother. Last night he prayed that I would have 2 more baby BOYS. He really wants a brother. 

Here are the cutest mini SnowWhites you’ve ever seen! 

So if Lydia is 6 months that means Grace is 3 1/2. I hope these two enjoy sharing a birthday 😬 I’m excited about it. 

I think I am settled on a You are my Sunshine theme for Lydia’s first birthday party. For Grace I’m going to do Build-a-Bear party and for her present I want to take her to Disney for the Bippity Boppity Boutique experience. This way this first year of sharing a birthday is extra special. 

This is Lydia and Grace at the same age.

The Lord has truly blessed me with these babies. Lydia really is an angel straight from His hands to mine. We love her so much and I am so honored to be her mommy.
