First Weekend in Florida

The weekend we pulled in the weather was beautiful and it was Dave’s birthday. We are very lucky that where we are staying is actually on the same road that my parents house in Haines City is off of too. They live about an hour south of us and they were actually down here when…

Move to Florida

Dave got the call for a job down near Orlando, FL that we just were dying to be apart of. Not only was the work for a long project but we’d be in Florida for winter! The guy who helped Dave get the job recommended the campground he was renting in called Clerbrook Golf and…

Pen Pal Fun!

There are some pipeline Facebook groups I am apart of. A fellow mom said her daughter had become interested in pen paling with kids on the same adventure as her. They decided to start a private group for us moms to find kids they could write to. I thought this was a great idea for…

WW Donuts

Welcome to another version of Weight Watchers Wednesday! I love this plan because you can still eat what you want. You have to be careful with some things or you literally won’t be eating anything else that day! Donuts are one of my favorite things. They are unfortunately very high in sugar which makes them…

Homeschooling Fun!

We had a few fun activities while we were homeschooling during our time in PA. The boys were introduced to Sight Word Bingo through D.J.’s reading curriculum. This is a way for D.J. to practice finding and saying his sight words. The nice thing is that Cameron wants to play every time so he gets…

Halloween 2016

We celebrated Halloween while in Charleroi, PA. We had already gotten the boys costumes while we were in Williamsport, PA. We went in to just look around when it first opened then the boys found exactly the costume they wanted so we went ahead and bought them. Cameron is a HUGE fan of Lego Ninjago….

Here We Go!

My parents have season tickets to Pittsburgh Steelers games. They have two tickets behind the Steelers bench on the 50-yard line, three rows back! Incredible seats that you can’t imagine how awesome they are until you experience being that close yourself. You can literally watch the players on the sidelines cause they are that close!…

Family Time

The nice thing with us being in Charleroi, PA was that we were close to my family. We were 30 mins from my parents house and maybe 45 to my sisters. I tried to take advantage of spending as much time with our family as we could. Here’s some of the things we did. We…

Boys Activities

I loved being apart of activities growing up and knew I wanted to give those opportunities to my kids when they were old enough. While we were in NY we found lots of things for the boys to do. They participated in soccer, basketball, baseball and karate. The boys have always been active kids and…

Simmons Farm Trip

Who doesn’t love fall and all the fun activities you can do?! I’ve always been a fan of going to a local farm and picking pumpkins. There are two farms where I grew up that have activities set up for the kids as well. I have always picked Simmons Farm over the other since you…

Homeschooling Begins

We started homeschooling September 6, 2016 while we were still in Williamsport, PA. Please read more about the Sonlight program I chose and why here. D.J. was starting first grade and Cameron Kindergarten. The boys would be doing social studies and science together. Since this was our first year, I knew trying to figure out…

Pittsburgh Penguins Fan Fest

The weekend we were in for the baby shower, we were supposed to go to Pittsburgh Penguins fan fest with my sister. Unfortunately they rescheduled it and at the time we weren’t sure when. Once we found out we were going to be in town, we were all very happy. Being a native Pittsburgher, we are…
