Choose To Be A Daisy

Choose To Be A Daisy

So our spring break was far too long and far too short. We left Kentucky exhausted but as usual we didn't get to see everyone we wanted to see. If we did get to visit, it was far too short. One afternoon I missed seeing my Aunt Carolyn. I love hearing her stories. She...

Things I Heard Watching Rogue One

So I actually filled out report cards this week. I only had a couple of incidents that needed counselors. My time in the classroom has been extended. It's been another long week. Poor Ray. He got a movie, made dinner and poured a glass of wine while I whined about...

Before… My Old Murray Home

We made it home in spite of dueling trucks on 81. Life is quite literally back at our rescheduled programming. I've been called in to work but the kiddos get another day of rest.  For giggles since I have no time to write anything I thought I would share the...

My Old Murray Home

So Chip and Joanna make it look more glamorous.  Ray and I do not! We've had a bit of a working spring break. I am currently a hot mess with dirt under my nails and dust in my hair. Ray's red neck is literally a red neck because we neglected the sunscreen. It's...

Sunday Words

We are home, or what we call home. Somewhere in that notch on the far southwestern bit of Kentucky dirt looking for our own piece. We made it in time for Mom's birthday and a seat on a church pew on Sunday morning. Mom handed me a Bible, the one she's been using. The...

And We’re Off

Y'all, we put the break in Spring Break and we are just getting started. We started with a tire break...or um puncture and for extra fun a slow leak in another one.  There was a lot of testosterone available so we were okay. It was back "breaking" work though. On...

Whatever Works

I have a rare day home with the kiddos. Four instead of 27 babies is refreshing. I slept in this morning. It was glorious! I am not a morning person. When your 9-year old loses five pounds from a stomach bug you start the morning with pancakes.  And bacon...đŸ¥“...

Our Ohana

Where do we start? We are a Navy family, constantly on the move finding the wind in our sails. Ray is the web designer, woodworker, scientist and sailor. B is the writer, bus driver, cook, tutor, housekeeper, substitute teacher and well lots of other things too.

We have big girls in band, cross country and all things high school, a very bossy nine year old into soccer and swimming, a quietly loud eight year old boy who has a love for all things lego and two funny, loving puppies.

There’s lots to do and so much fun. We count our many, many blessings daily.

Stay tuned… things might get interesting with our misadventures in parenting!
