Little Garden


Every year we plants tomatoes, bell peppers, Jalapeño and some things new last year the new things was onions it did well so we are doing them again this year.

This year our new thing is a blue berry bush, was Todd’s idea. I really hope it work I love blueberries!
We are planting seeds. Sunday Ian and TJ planted onion and Jalapeño seeds in a little seed starter set we got for them. Ian is going to be taking pics of them so we can watch them grow. Hopefully in a month or so we have nice plants to get our some of our food from.

We will be getting some seedlings too in case our seeds do not grow for us.

Ohio woes


I really want to go I am so lonely in Ohio I have no friends here the only friends I have are my online friends and at times I feel they do not really think of me as a friend. We moved to Ohio from my hometown and my friends 4 years ago to live closer to Todd’s parents. We live about 2 hours from them; we see them maybe five times a year. It is sad really but it is how it is, both of our faults really.

When we first got to Ohio, we started going to a church called Grace Baptist church it is a huge church. It seemed like it may work, but after awhile we felt like we were just another face in the crowd and not really a part of the church so we left it. We start going to New life Baptist and it was wonderful a small church with our beliefs, everything  was great about it but it was far a 45-60 minute drive to get to it and with Ohio winters it makes it hard to get to it with a large family. Therefore, Todd decided we would not go anymore.

We have been without a church for too long I long to hear Gods word being preached, and for the church family we had. We all need to be going to church so bad, without church there is an emptiness that can only be filled by God and hearing his word.
For a long time I felt we needed to go back “home” New Mexico. We had a church and friends there, we could go back and everything would be the same right? Wrong the saying says you can never go back home and it is true. Our friends out there have changed and even though I tried to stay in contact with them, I really have not and they have not with me. 

When we move, again we pray it will be our last time and that we can start looking for our house we will make roots in the house we will live in until our time here is done, and we go to Heaven our forever home.

We want to move to a homeschool friendly state, to be able to be close to a good Fundamental Independent King James Version Baptist Church (FIKJVBC), and have country living that I have always wanted, chickens goats, sheep you know a small farm… Not too much to ask for right? Well it is ion Gods hands, I wait, and I am ready!

Spring cleaning


Every wonder why when cleaning you have to make a HUGE mess first? That is what we are doing right now cleaning, “spring cleaning” I guess you could call it. We are donating stuff we just do not use anymore and making more room for stuff we do use.

So far, we have gone through our entire book collection and let me tell you have many, three bookshelves full, five shelf bookshelves at that!  I organized all them with the help of Ian; we sadly had to get rid of a few that were very torn.

We are putting our school reading books on them and getting ready for next school year already, we are going to be using a Switched - on Schoolhouse next year for Ian and Timber Doodle Kindergarten for TJ, I will be doing pre-school with Timmy, Kayla will be doing Toddler stuff. Hoping to get Joey the baby kit but we have not yet.

Anyways back to the cleaning, going to be steam cleaning the bathrooms and the kitchen next week. Sewing daily toy bags for the little’s to have a bag of “new” toys each day. 

I am praying over our new schedule so we can get things on track around here again not that things are not but I like have things very organized.
