If You Had 5 Years…

Someone asked our group of moms tonight, “If you had five healthy years to live, what would you do?” I was slightly surprised by the answers.

Monarch Madness

We’ve driven by the Panhandle Butterfly House in Navarre, FL many times and have always intended to go for a visit, but never had the chance as they are seasonal. We got the perfect opportunity in October when they hosted their annual Monarch Madness for all who wanted to attend! It was a fun and educational day! We learned a lot about butterflies and about the Panhandle Butterfly House and its volunteers! We hope you enjoy this video and don’t forget to subscribe to our channel for other great videos!

Out The Deer Stand He Went

We were out eating dinner when my mom called…twice. Once on my phone, then once on my husband’s. She never does that, unless it’s important. Someone fell, from somewhere high, is all I can gather from my husband’s phone call with her. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out who would fit this description as I quietly tried to decode their phone conversation. It was my grandfather. My grandfather who is completely healthy and happily pushing over 80! The guy who could probably still beat me in an arm wrestling contest! He had a fractured L1 and L2, broken/fractured pelvis, and 6 broken ribs. He would need surgery to fix the hip/pelvis and recovery would be many, many months.

Pirates!!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by those you love! This was our first Thanksgiving in our RV, which was such a relaxing and special time. Having lived in Florida for a few years now, and never going on theĀ Buccaneer Pirate Cruise, we decided to join in on the fun! I highly recommend this if you’re ever near or around the Destin area! The crew was amazing, made sure all the kids were having fun, and even had such a positive and uplifting message to all the kids! It truly was a wonderful experience! We hope you enjoy this video, and as always like, comment, subscribe for more videos!

Children and Their Joy for Life

Sitting here in an all too familiar place watching my little 6 year old in his “big boy” gymnastics class has me contemplating life. By now you’re wondering what kind of gymnastics class this is to offer such insight, right?? I promise the class isn’t as intense as it sounds and neither is the gym. But back to why I started writing to begin with. Have you sat back and really observed a child? Really watched their behavior, their excitement, their joy for…well… everything? If not, I highly recommend unplugging completely for a bit and truly taking it in.my-new-video-project1

Chattahoochee Nature Center

On our Georgia trip, we made sure to head over to the Chattahoochee Nature Centernter in Roswell, GA. I had been when I was younger, but didn’t know much about it recently. Boy did it change! I was super impressed with everything they had to offer and we weren’t even able to go on a themed day. They have themed days relating back to the time of year or addressing specific topics, which is great for those looking for some bonus add-ons to your curriculum! I highly recommend stopping by if you’re local or in the area traveling! We really enjoyed this as a field trip because it pairs nature with education, which I love!
