Record Flooding Here In Louisiana

Record Flooding Here In Louisiana

For those of you who may not know, we are currently experiencing record flooding here in Louisiana. This weather has been some of the worst that we have seen in our parts in quite some time.

But since we have been so busy going back and forth to the hospital this past week with Patrick, I never even paid attention to some important little things around the house that I really should have in order to prepare for this weather….

They Aren’t Going Out In The Rain

They Aren’t Going Out In The Rain

This is soooo our little beagle, Gingerbread today. It has been raining here ALL evening, and I have had to FORCE her out of the door to go to the bathroom (WITHOUT a raincoat, may I add)

Our 3 year old keeps trying to CONVINCE me that we can simply teach her to use the potty like she did, but yeah…. I don’t think that is going to work. But if it does, you may just see us on the 5 o’clock news! 😉

Check out what’s heading our way… YIKES! Thankfully, our parish moved trick or treating to last night, so we are FINISHED and enjoying our day in doors! (And trust us when we say, we NEED it after all of last night’s festivities with 4 little ones)

But for those of you who are still trick or treating and celebrating Halloween tonight, please BE SAFE and HAVE FUN! 🙂

Reason No. 143 To Homeschool

Reason No. 143 To Homeschool

This is just another reason as to why we have been LOVING homeschooling! It has been raining here in Louisiana for 2 days straight! (Which we aren’t complaining about since it has not rained in over 2 weeks) It has been so HOT and DRY that our ground is cracking, and our poor plants and grass have been dying… even with regular watering. So, as y’all can imagine, we have welcomed this much needed rain with OPEN ARMS! It has also tremendously helped to cool our home down with the HIGH HEAT ADVISORY that we have been under.Continue reading

No Matter What… Keep Moving Forward

No Matter What… Keep Moving Forward

Yes, friends, life NEVER seems to follow along with our plans. The road can prove to be BUMPY, and oh so LONG. It can be very EASY to become disheartened and LOSE all hope. But we can GUARANTEE you this one TRUTH if you KEEP MOVING FORWARD, you will eventually make it to the FINISH LINE. Now, it may take longer than what you initially anticipated, but you will get there. Don’t lose HOPE!Continue reading

You see, it has been raining here in Louisiana for over a WEEK! Literally, EVERYDAY! So much so, that I think this may be OUR NEXT STOP…Continue reading

Possible Tropical Storm Headed Our Way!

Look at this BAD WEATHER in the Gulf! YIKES! Thankfully, we got our grass cut today, and yard picked up JUST IN CASE this storm gets worse and heads our way. We also made a trip to pick up our materials for all of our orders this coming week. So, we won’t have to worry about heading out again, or having our lumber getting wet in case we have a VERY RAINY WEEK! WHEW! We always like to PLAN AHEAD! Continue reading
