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…

Kayleigh’s First Birthday

I was so happy that we were going to be in the area to be home for my niece’s first birthday party. We were in North Dakota for my sister’s baby shower that I wasn’t able to get home for. I told hubby no matter where we were for her first birthday, I was going…

The Move to Charleroi, PA

I grew up in Washington, PA. My whole family still lives around there. Hubby got a call to work close to there so we took the opportunity knowing it wouldn’t be long but nice to be around family. I was planning on coming home for my niece’s first birthday but instead the timing all worked…

WW Wed. Inspiration

I will admit right now that I am not a good cook! I do not claim to know what I’m doing in the kitchen. I cannot take what’s in my fridge and pantry and create a recipe from scratch. I never learned how to cook from my mom.  But what I can do is follow…

Visits with Friends

The last part of our time in Williamsport, PA was being close enough to visit one of our closest friends from our time in New York. Cameron instantly became best friends with a girl he met at the playground once D.J. started Kindergarten. Her mom and I clicked and became close friends as well. We…

Hershey, PA

Dave loves to go check out campers whenever he has the chance. He likes to know what is out there in case we ever need to change from our Montana. He discovered a HUGE RV show that was going to be held in Hershey, PA. It would only be a 2 hour drive from where…

Weight Watchers Wednesday

Today I want to talk about my weight loss journey. I was a bigger child until I hit high school when I really started paying attention to what I was eating. I loved desserts, chips and dip, anything chocolate and peanut butter. All things that aren’t healthy. We were a busy family of 6 so…

Homeschooling Program

I’m calling this homeschooling Sunday. Anytime I write about our homeschooling experience, I will most likely post on Sundays for you to read. In this post I will explain what program I chose and why. It took me some time to wrap my mind around whether or not I could or would want to homeschool…
