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 15th year of homeschooling using a Classical ~ Literature based approach.

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

Sweet Shot Tuesday ~homecoming recap

Well, it’s been almost a week since we had our day on the pier.  To say that it was hot would be an understatement! I think I sweated off two pounds during our wait, and that’s not a bad thing, right?

Madison nearly fainted from being in the heat. At that point we still had over an hour to wait, so I loaded her up with food and water and then she perked back up (a little bit) when she saw the ship round the corner.

McKenzie was as happy as a clam in her stroller. She had the shade and all the treats her belly could handle. And looky here, she is sucking on her binky. Something she usually never does at home.
