No Foolin' Around ~ {Giveaway included}


It's April already, yay! This year is flying past us at warp speed. At least it is on our end it is.

April 1st means four things in this house, my birthday (on the 29th), we are officially in our orders window, the Science festival, and TOS is offering a great deal for my readers!


First up, we have heard from the detailer that my hubby has secured a job position as a department head on a local ship. Whohoo, that means we get to stay in our current location until the end of 2019. Marie will graduate from college and Madison from high school and we will, Lord willing, be sending her off to the Air Force Academy that summer to start her training.


Next up, TOS has graciously offered my readers to download three ebooks for free. I tried to pick a wide variety of topics that i thought my readers would be interested in. They include:




All you have to do to secure them is add them to your cart and enter this code, JCCREW16, and your set!

The USA Science and Engineering Festival is this month and we finally get to go after 4 years of wanting to attend. We have always had gymnastics or the year I was pregnant with Micah we could attend either. But this year, WE ARE GOING! Madison is so excited, she loves everything space. Its going to be crowded, which makes me nervous, but my Auntie is going to tag along too to give me an extra set of eyes and hands. Can't wait to tell you all about it.



My birthday is at the end of the month, yay! Another year older and wiser, at least I think so 😉. This year, is special in that Mikayla has the opportunity to compete at a HUGE gymnastics meet on my birthday and the next day I get to take Montana to see The Lion King. We have front row seats and she is over the moon about it. She has been practicing walking in wedge heels for weeks, and she has already picked out her dress. It is going to be a lovely day, I can't wait.


I am knee deep in planning for next school year as we finish out the current one. We are year-around homeschoolers, so the learning never really stops. It is sometimes hard to focus on finishing what we have to do now when all the shiny new catalogs are arriving in the mail. But, we press on and finish strong.

I hope you have a blessed April!
