Whatever Works

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¥“...

Wash Your Hands And Say Your Prayers

Wash your hands and say your prayers 'cause Jesus and germs are everywhere... I saw that on a sign and thought I need that in my life. Well ya'll, I'm here to tell you that it's true.  Sunday night Bria came home saying she felt yucky. No doubt! We had a huge...

Let me show you Jack on his third birthday...             He wasn't thrilled with the cake we sent him in China.         The weird candle probably freaked him out a little. Then there was his fourth birthday. I took...

At The End Of The Day

Praying for Jake

This morning I would love for you to say a prayer for my buddy, Jake and his family. He's Bria's and Jack's friend from church and school. I never tire of seeing his face in the hall at school. Those big blue eyes are always sparkling and he always has a crooked...

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!
