The last time my heart melted was because....

There are so many miniature moments throughout my days that melt my heart, that they are sometimes hard to recall.   I try to keep a journal but I am not persistent enough to record all of life's meaningful moments.  I do however try to post those moments on facebook so at least I have them recorded somewhere for my memory.

I love this age with my kids. I love the toddler age, my little one turning 2, my middle child 5, establishing her independence and fashion sense. Some days she's 5 going on 20. My oldest of 7 years old is getting so big and smart. The other day told me about how songs are science because of the sound waves to your ears and that's how we hear them.  Those moments really shock me.

But the last time my heart truly melted was because of this moment

It was dinner time, hence the food.  We are all sitting around the table well, mommy and daddy were sitting, the kids standing, hopping around as if it hurts to sit on their behind. I'm sure I remind everyone to sit 100 times every meal. I need to come up with a sit on your butt singing song. Husband and I are trying to stuff our faces before the kids ask for seconds and thirds because they LERVE taco night and so do we! 

My 7 year old in the middle there said something not so nice to my 5 year old on the left there, and I thought it was a good opportunity to try and say something nice about each other. So we went around the table and said nice things about one another instead of not nice things.   Immediately the dynamic had changed and the kids started hugging each other. This went on for a few minutes as I was able to grab my camera and snap a picture.  It melted my little beating heart like butter to see this.  Siblings sometimes are sour and sometimes sweet like sour patch kids, but on those rare moments when they are sweet, it's ohh soo sweet. 

Linking up today with MamaKat's Weekly Writing prompts. Thanks so much for your inspired topics. It's helping me come up with topics I would otherwise have a hard time thinking of! 

Happy Blogging.

That is absolutely adorable.
I love it when we are able to catch a moment like this on camera -- because you know they'll never believe it when they are teenagers!!
It's the little moments that make our hearts melt. All the sibling love there.

As a parent it really does melt your heart to see your kids getting along so well. People will come and go throughout there life, but they will always have each other.

Last Day Of School! Keep In Touch Card Free Printable

Just because it's the last day of school doesn't mean your kids and their friends can't play together!

*Personal information is blacked out.
I wanted to make cards, something my son could hand out to his new friends at school. We just moved here last year and he was really sad about saying goodbye for the summer. This way if they want to play they can give him a call.  Luckily, I found this cute saying online fromShe's kinda crafty who had the same idea. I made the card and thought I'd share it with you!   
The card is a rectangle on the printout and I used an edge cut out to get the round edges.  I love those little things, they make cards so cute.  The font I used is Janda Silly Monkey

First Day of Homeschool (Free Printable)

This year our crew will begin our homeschooling journey.

It's kind of hard to explain how I decided to homeschool my three young children of different ages. Either I'm completely cookoo bonkers, or I'm definitely inspired by the holy ghost.

I'd like to think the latter, and since my husband and I decided to go full steam ahead with homeschooling, I've already seen blessings in our lives. Blessings of family togetherness, less stress, love of learning and life and we really haven't begun school yet.

I decided to share with you some free "First day of Homeschool" Printables because I wasn't able to find any on pinterest.

Homeschool kids need first day of school pictures too!

Have a wonderful school year!

Enjoy and thanks for popping by!

Where to find Cute Modest dresses

Hello! Welcome!

If you are reading this post you are like so many other ladies that ask me the same question. Where do you get all these cute dresses??

Since I get that question a lot around here I thought I would write a blog post with all of the online places I frequent to find modest dresses.  Modest meaning long or appropriate length and sleeves.  I will occasionally purchase a dress with spaghetti straps and wear a cardi or white t-shirt underneath also. But who wants to do that all the time??

So pin it, share it, bookmark it and check them out....if you can't find anything message me and I'll see what I can do.

Seriously, I'm not joking about this.  I love to shop and if I get to shop for people it's even more fun...of course you will have to pay me.

These are all places for 0-plus size. So, there is something for everyone.
