Hubby funny

OK so my husband is a real wise guy and some days I just want to smack him. A few days ago he was not helping me around the house and I was getting frustrated. It was just one of those days and I wanted to throw a temper tantrum. (btw I am really good at those) He looks at me after I gave him the look and tells me " I'm just helping you to strive to reach your goal of being a Proverbs 31 woman".

Summer Fun

The kiddos have been enjoying their summer and I think they are sad to see it come to an end. It is weird for us though because most of our long distance friends have already started the new school year. The kids don't go back until Sept 9th.

Reynaldo went to extended school year, a day of Basketball Camp, suffered a concussion and has been home since. Dominic went to a summer camp through the recreation department, got bullied and will never go back to this poorly run program. He is now enjoying his second week of basketball camp to close the summer with a bang. Kiarrah went to an awesome Bible based camp and thrived immensely. They poured on love big time and it kept her very busy. Then she enjoyed two different VBS's. Gracie and Noah were my little tag along buddies whom enjoyed many walks and park trips. We Enjoyed a day of blueberry picking, many walks to Hoboken to the waterfont, trips for icecream, and a visit from cousins from Nevada. We also celebrated Noahs first birthday and Gracie's third.
The kids were really excited about a new sprinkler playground that we have near by. Here are a few pictures of the kids from this summer.


Along with all the excitement of raising 5 children I thought I would share some other exciting news with you.

I have been so hungry to do more with my time that will make a difference. With 5 children though it had to be something that I could fit in and God ordained to work. Well, after a few months of praying I was approached and asked to be a Family Editor for a new and upcoming Christian women's magazine. I knew right away that this was it. I am extremely excited to have this opportunity to share my ideas and experiences of being a mommy, wife, sister, friend and daughter. We will be launching this new online venue in September. Currently we are taking subscriptions WHICH ARE FREE and we have a daily blog. Check us out at Rekindle Magazine and tell all of your friends. We are also always looking for Christian Women who like to write. Buckle you seat belts. I can't wait to see what God is going to do.
