Been a whiles since I have been on my blog. Where has the time gone. Quick update on our world and why I have not been around.

If you have read this blog before you know my father passed away on May 31, 2013. Sad to say my mother in law has passed away on Sept 8, 2015. A week or so later my best friend, Owlbee, passed away Sept 25. It has been a roller coaster ride of emotions around here.

The kids...

Bigger (16) is still playing the bass at church, doing okay in school and has a girlfriend and has been spending a lot of time with her family.


Super D (16) is still with us and is more of our family every day. He is taking classes at St. Petersburg College duel enrollment program.

(no picture, he does not like me posting them online, sad mom face)

Honey (8) is her typical girly self. She is struggling with school.  We have added a tutor once a week for reading and I am looking into a new curriculum for math.

Moose (6 about to be 7) is an active boy. He has such an imagination and can turn any items into a playing field. (Who needs toys, right) His is great at math and is moving along slowly with reading.

The hubby...

Big Daddy is dealing with the death of his mom in his own way. We got him a puppy, his name is Duke. He is still playing the drums at church and shows me every day how much he loves me.

As for Me, Lil Momma,

I have been dealing with migraines/headaches for a while now and they are finally getting to the point I can not function. I am see neurologist. I have really thrown myself into daily doodling and drawing to help my stress level. You can follow me on Instagram at #lilmommab. Dealing with so much loss, mother in law and best friend, Owlbee. It has been even more stressful.

I think that is the update for us.

PS. The school pictures are proof pics from the best photographer! Mor

Crazy Headache!

Wow, where have I been? I am sorry I have blogged lately. I have had a nasty migraine that has kept me from being on the computer much. It lasted 9 days. WOW now that was a nasty migraine.

Many of you know I have migraines or headaches often. Pretty much some type of head pain daily. I have been tested (MRI) and nothing has come back other then maybe stress.

Who does not have stress in their life, right?

I am trying to do new things to help with the migraines that I have. I had cut Gluten out of my diet but it did not seem to make a difference.

Right now I am trying essential oils. I am learning a lot from my friend Jamie,  She has introduced me to a few oils and can't wait to try more. Right now I am using Lavender, Peppermint, PanAway and Valor. The Lavender and Pan Away seem to be the two that Big Daddy and I are using the most of. I can't wait till the end of the month when the Mgrain comes in. I will let ya'll know how that works for my head.

Here is a great list of different things that the oils can be used for. We shall see how they go for me.

We will start our new school year after Labor Day. More details on that to come.

Another New Family Member

We have been so busy that I forgot to share that we have yet another new family member.

Meet Georgie Grace!

Gerogie gets along very well with Cali 

(flash makes eyes close) 

Georgie loves to sit in Mooses lap and watch his DS. 

Georgie is Moose's kitten and Cali is Honey's kitten. 

Everyone is doing great adjusting to being part of our family.

Eggspactular Science Activity

We did this great homeschool science activity at the beginning of the summer and life has been so busy that I am just now getting around to showing ya'll.

We decided to take an EGG and place it in vinegar and watch how it changed.

Here is our fresh from the fridge egg.

This was minutes after we placed it into the vinegar.

Over time we saw foam. 

After a few days we ended up with an EGG WITH NO SHELL

Some people call it a naked egg. We where able to squeeze it to a point.  

When it broke we ended up being a very soft slimy 

Here is the vinegar egg and a regular egg side by side. 

It was a very neat experiment for the kids they really enjoyed it.
