Riding Horses With My Son

So, I decided to drag William to my horse land. Originally, I was worried that it would be an issue because he has a tendency to toe-walk. This is an issue that has definitely worsened while staying safe at home for so long. Research showed that horseback riding could help with this, though. Ok, my … Continue reading Riding Horses With My Son

Learning To Ride All The Horses

I had this vision of writing a post for each lesson or at least, each horse I ride. But, time got away from me. Shocking! So, I'm gonna attempt to succinctly sum up my horse adventures so far! I've had several horseback riding lessons since my tacking adventure. I have gone beyond riding Dallas who … Continue reading Learning To Ride All The Horses

I Forget About My Son’s ADHD

My son has ADHD and sometimes that just seems like a catch-all diagnosis. Through the years, there have been those who didn't completely think that ADHD was a "thing" and there have been those who thought it was as simple as taking away sugar. And there have been those who didn't think I should have … Continue reading I Forget About My Son’s ADHD

Trying To Catch My Chickens

I have reached a new level in my relationship with my chickens. I already felt pretty confident that they weren't afraid of me in any way but now they are comfortable enough to manipulate me! Yay! They are now like my human children. Ha! Well, I mean, they already manipulated me but like I said, … Continue reading Trying To Catch My Chickens

I Did It My Way….A Review

I recently switched to Myway! It's a pre-pay version of JEA (Jacksonville Electric Company). I was immediately skeptical when they pitched it to me as I visualized random disconnections because I was a dollar short in the account or running to my account every day to pay the piper. Oh, please don't turn off my … Continue reading I Did It My Way….A Review

I Hate Waking My Son Up

My 13 year old epitomizes the term "heavy sleeper." The worst part of my day has always been any time that I have to wake him up. Homeschool definitely makes that part easier because I can try to let him wake up naturally. Not always, though, because he has been known to sleep all day. … Continue reading I Hate Waking My Son Up

When You Lose Your Cat

I have had cats all of my life. Sometimes a reasonable amount, sometimes not so much. But, I have always loved them. And, of course, there have been a few that were particularly special to me. One of these cats is Coulson. We had him since he was a baby in 2012. But, in April, … Continue reading When You Lose Your Cat

I’m being Manipulated By My Chickens

I have been a chicken mama and Learning The Chicken Ropes for a couple of months now and they are still so dang cute. It has been really cool to learn about them and I'm definitely looking forward to the eggs. 😊 I always wanted chickens and I now get why chicken owners get obsessed cause … Continue reading I’m being Manipulated By My Chickens

Learning How To Not Ride A Horse

So despite my slightly traumatic intro lesson, I officially signed up for horseback riding lessons! I was excited but nervous. I agonized about having to get on the horse again. I pumped myself up and despite the pit in my stomach, I headed out with my partner in crime, Paige, and her daughter. But, I … Continue reading Learning How To Not Ride A Horse

When Kids Take Care Of You

Sometimes, my kids surprise me. Well, not surprise, just impress. I already knew that William had a sensitive soul and that Lizzie has a huge heart but no idea how to express her emotions. (Because she doesn't like to admit that she has them.) Me, on the other hand, I'm a big ball of emotion. … Continue reading When Kids Take Care Of You
