This blog is my attempt to document our busy but BLESSED lives raising and educating our children for His glory. A child of God, wife to one, and mom to 6 fabulous kids. We are in our 9th year of homeschooling using a Classical ~ Charlotte Mason approach.

Come along for the good, the bad & the ugly.

Welcome to the club!


Mikayla has officially joined the "gallbladder club", becoming the youngest member of the family to have her gallbladder removed. Surgery was scheduled for the 18 Dec. at Seattle's Children's Hospital @ 1230pm. Of course, we had a snow storm on Tuesday night, did you see our cute snow day pictures. So, we loaded the family into the Odyssey and began our venture down to Children's through the snow. We ended up arriving two hours early and getting into surgery ahead of our scheduled time because the people in front of us canceled because of the storm. Even the doctor, Dr. Avansino had a hard time getting to the hospital. Everything thing went perfect!!! Mikayla and I stayed the night at the hospital while Mike and the other girls stayed at a local hotel for the night. All through the night Mikayla kept waking up and requesting eggs and bacon, and the nurses kept bringing jello, yogurt, pudding, and three boxes of cereal . The nurses finally granted her wish of eggs and bacon at 815am when they delivered her breakfast tray :-) Needless to say, she was thrilled. Mikayla and Trixie, the dog, were released from the hospital on the 19th, and we made our trek back home. She is recovering greatly and she should be back to her normal self by the end of the year.
