  • I’ve been quiet on here lately and here’s why...⁣
⁣
💗 Working hard on my business behind the scenes.⁣
⁣
💗 I still have my part-time job that I love and we’ve got new and exciting things happening there!⁣
⁣
💗 We started #homeschooling for the 20/21 season. ⁣
⁣
Getting a head start makes me WAY more relaxed throughout the year. And when I’m relaxed, so are the kids. Same thing happens when I’m stressed. And that goes for all of motherhood, not just homeschooling.⁣
⁣
I know we are ALL a little extra stressed right now. Thanks COVID. Let’s take away some of the chaos, shall we?⁣

  • What does it look like to have your firstborn turn 17?⁣
⁣
Heart swelling with pride as you watch him grow...⁣
Creating more space for his passions...⁣
Giving more and more independence...⁣
Holding tight the memories we have made...⁣
Working to preserve the time we have now...⁣
Celebrating the incredible human he is!⁣
⁣
Happy Birthday to the guy who made me a mom and keeps me guessing as to whether or not I'm doing this mom thing right! Another year around the sun and still teaching me so much. Rowan, you are one of the greatest joys in life 💙

  • Gracias Portugal, por unos días de maravilla, de naturaleza, de desconexión, de familia, de playa, de sol y de picnic!!!!!!!!
Volvemos con la maleta llena de ropa sucia y arena, tristes de que se haya acabado nuestra mini burbuja, pero todavía con la sensación de arena los pies y el pelo reseco por la sal, espero que esa sensación me dure!!!! Y para estrujarla al máximo, seguiré compartiendo algunas fotos, y sobre todo, haciendo más vídeos para recordar ❤️🇵🇹🐚🏝🍉🥂⛱

  • If you didn’t #roadtrip in a RV with etched glass cabinet doors, a rose/blue decor palette, and that very defined Eau de Camping, did you even really HAVE a childhood?

She’s not the prettiest, or the fanciest. There’s not a slide out one or even AC while driving unless you run an onboard generator. The wind shear volume whilst underway completely drowns out any hope of conversation (maybe that’s a perk!). 

But. 

This is the RV where all the children are always welcome. YES, you can come in and YES auntie will get you a snack and always YES. Because memories don’t happen alone and we always want to be the memory makers with our YES and our dated but kid proof RV. 

One week to vacay!

  • [ Family ] Over the past few months, I’ve spent more time with three of the most important people in my life. 🤪❤️
We’ve loved
We’ve laughed
We’ve cried
We’ve prayed
We’ve argued
We’ve dreamed
We’ve persisted
We’ve grown stronger 💪🏽
•
•
As the school year quickly approaches, I am disciplining myself to hold on to truth, beauty, and goodness. I must ensure that I leave behind all that prevents me and my family from reaching our full potential and bring with me everything needed to reach our destiny.
•
•
Two questions that @justin_hodges__  and I have explored are...
1. What do we want to keep from the “stay at home season”?....
2.  What do we want to leave in the “stay at home season”? 
😀 I’ll share with you what we came up with in my next blog post! 💻

  • This is what I’ve wanted for 7 years..... more time with him and his siblings. Now I’ll be able to take each one of them to school everyday. We are on the same schedule and I’ll be there when they are finished with school. All the sacrifices, all the risks and prayers have finally come together for this day. #18summers #7000days #raisingshepherds #daddolife @herdofshepherds

  • ☀️our last day of summer break  8.5.20 

❤️ We said goodbye to summer 2020 today with a visit to daycare, lunch and golf cart rides at GCSA to celebrate @amyjjenkins1 birthday, and a pool party at Aunt Connie’s pool.
❤️ I am so grateful for the time I had with these kiddos the last 5 months, but it’s never easy to say goodbye to our carefree summer days. 
❤️ Heading back to school this year with so many unknowns makes it even more difficult. We may not be ready, but the world says it’s time to get back to normal! So here’s goodbye to naps, walks, pool time, day trips, vacations, leisurely lunches, sleeping in, staying our pjs until noon, and many memorable adventures with the Morgans.

  • Note to self: do not eat chips and hold an SD card at the same time. You guys, I accidentally put it in my mouth and bit it! I knew I bought a camera with two SD slots for a reason, I just didn’t think this was it. 🤦🏼‍♀️

  • Day 13 Summer holidays 2020 Guess what day it is uncle Vic day out we were meant to go some new woods instead thanks to two wonderful friends Emily and Danie I was able to get the exact location for the sunflower field 🌻🌻🌻. A walk past some horses to the most magnificent sight that really does take your breath away. We walked around trying to find the donation area but unfortunately couldn't see it. We stayed on the correct side of the fence unlike quite a few adults who seemed to think it was a good idea to trespass and then you have to explain to your kids who seemed to understand. We drove back and headed to McDonald's we sat in and enjoyed the 50% off!!! The kids know they can't eat out for the rest of the week now 🤣🤣🤣 we headed to tesco to buy new flannels as Xander said we needed new ones! He picked Egyptian cotton! 💷 💷 We came back and poor uncle vic was split in two different ways all wanting to play games with him. So two hours later they finally gave him a break! 🤣 The boys told me they were tired but had a nice day and Xander said he enjoyed talking and spending time with Charlie! #summeradventure2020 #summerholiday #creatingmemories #18summers #brawnbrothers #day13

  • While Little Little slept, we took Big Little to explore Daly Point. I am thinking the head 🦟 mosquito who was at the gate, called the rest to tell them we were there. 😬

  • A new Splashlands has opened in Welwyn Garden City. The splashlands is open from 10am to 6pm.
During high session (busy periods) there is currently a limit of 130 per session and each session lasts an hour. We arrived at 9.40am and got in for the first session. As our session ended the line was very long!
There is currently no booking system, you just turn up and queue unfortunately. 
The splashpad water play area is surrounded by a nautical themed adventure playground with a large pirate ship and a variety of play equipment.
The Splashlands is free to visit. 
There is plenty of parking onsite, which is paid for. Use the north car park
From Barnet, it was a 20 minute drive.

  • Day 12 Summer holidays 2020 Today we ventured to Wicksteed park to take Auntie Jackie and Uncle Tom as they had never been. Weather was a bit hit and miss, but we rode the train, found the dog statue then had tears on the carousel when a girl beat Charlie to riding the rooster 🐓!!! Oh the tears 😭, we ate a picnic then played with flying saucers and pop ball catchers, we went to try to ice cream parlor but it was awaiting a delivery so we left. We then headed to find the field of sunflowers!!! I must of drove past them so a bit gutted 🌻 so we headed to ice cream parlour in Market Harborough and got three ice creams for the price of 1!!!🍧🍨🍨Yummy as we left Charlie hugged me and said I love you mummy thank you for taking us. It was very sweet. A lovely day enjoying staying and exploring near home. #summeradventure2020 #18summers #brawnbrothers #summerholiday #day12 #creatingmemories

Y para estrujarla al máximo, seguiré compartiendo algunas fotos, y sobre todo, haciendo más vídeos para recordar ❤️🇵🇹🐚🏝🍉🥂⛱

  • I always dreamed of having three kids, a boy and then two girls. But I don’t remember my dreams going beyond being a mom of babies or little kids. Yet here we are closing the door on my first born’s junior year of High School!
.

I once read an article that pointed out that you “only have 18 summers with your kids”. I think at the time, I had at least 10 to go!  Then I blinked!
.

I’d love to gush about how amazing this kid is, but I’m going to get into “trouble” simply for posting this 😜. .
Here’s to summer #18!

  • ✨Twirling into the weekend ✨I’m feeling summer coming to an end soon and I have mixed feelings about it! I know most of you are back in school already, but we have a few more weeks 🙏 We’ve only got 18 summers (and really only 10 where they 1. Remember and 2. Want to hang with us) I hope we made the most of this summer and that they’ll have these memories always!

  • We get 18 short summers with our kids, 940 weekends, before they are off! ⠀
⠀
My husband and I have recently been talking about how precious these little years are and how quickly they go. ⠀
⠀
These are the days that they LOVE spending time with us, when they REALLY need us, and when we have the privilege of creating special moments. ⠀
⠀
The night I took this picture we put her sister down to bed and let our oldest stay up past her bedtime to see the sunset over the lake. She walk between us hand in hand as we let the cool waves wash over our feet, we collect smooth pebbles in the waves and laughed together. ⠀
⠀
These days are fleeting, soak them in, relish in the moments and create space for special, seemingly insignificant moments with your kids! ⠀
⠀
Don’t get me wrong, our days are full of wiping the noses, bottoms and the milk off the floor,  picking up the legos, sweeping up the Cheerios and ringing out the swim suits, coaching through the tantrums and reminding them of expectations over. And over, and over... but what precious work this is!⠀
⠀
Create the memories, make the space and cherish the moments!⠀

  • This little guy…I just love watching him as he grows, explores, and learns. He asks hundreds of questions each day and has conversations 24/7 with whoever wants to listen (which usually ends up being the dog). Lately he has been talking a lot about Gianna. When cleaning out his room the other day he told me he would save some outgrown shoes and clothes for her and send them to Heaven. He also said he was going to take a flight to heaven so he could have a slumber party with her and Jesus. When I told him planes don’t go that far, he simply said that an angel could take him then. Even though we miss her presence in our daily life, his tender love for her is so evident. 👼🏻 #bigbrother #angelmama #healing #lifeafterloss #18summers

  • Well here’s a fun anniversary! Today Colin & I celebrate 10 official years together!⁣
⁣
On May 28, 2010...Colin officially asked me to be his girlfriend. What a life we’ve built together in only ten years! We’ve built businesses & babies. Moved from shopping for frat parties to houses. Laughed together, cried together. Compromised & battled. Loved & learned. ⁣
⁣
I am so grateful that it’s been him by my side throughout every single step. ⁣
⁣
Cheers to the next 10! And the next…& the next…& the next!

True story... I wanted to alter this photo. I wanted to make me look 10lbs thinner and 5 beach trips tanner. But then I decided embracing this slightly wider, saggier, tired, pale, new(ish) mom bod of mine was all around way cooler. And I’m really trying to be a cool mom.

So, mamas, here’s to embracing our summer/mom/quarantine bods this summer and enjoying every moment we can, because we only get 18 summers with our babies and I’m already down to 17 🤍

  • So technically New Bern, North Carolina isn't on the Great Loop.⠀
⠀
It was about a 20 mile detour off of the Intracoastal Waterway (40 miles round trip.) For that reason, we really debated this stop. We're anxious to get to the Chesapeake Bay and continue north as much as we're able.⠀
⠀
But wow, New Bern stole our hearts. We love this charming little coastal town!⠀
⠀
Did you know it was the original capital of North Carolina?⠀
Or that Pepsi was invented there?⠀
Or that New Bern is home to one of the oldest fire departments in the US?⠀
