Well... I never thought beekeeper would be added to my many titles. I finally caved in after 6 months of Matt begging to start making local honey from our house. .

The bee keeper suits came in this week and we will be picking up the bees and hives in a couple days. For the full story, check my IG story today where you get to hear my true feelings of all things bees.  Matt and the kids are starting their own IG page: @brookwoodbeekeepers if you want to follow their many adventures. ..

In the mean time, just call me #queenbee

Brown paper packages! These are a few of my favourite things today. After a mega review on @radionewzealand there was a mega flurry of book orders. Yay! #regram from @magpiepulplisette who has been sending these puppies out far and wide.

@thebryankiddies Oh.. this is so cool!! Ronnie would love it there aa well

I have a thing for antique beds, like this cannonball rope bed from @luckettstore that we converted to accommodate a full size mattress. The mattress *almost* didn’t fit which would have made things interesting  but thankfully it was just perfect. It’s been really fun to decorate a tween-to-teen boy room for my almost-13-year-old and I love the way it’s turning out!

@asheford_institute I like it so 😀👍

@yankeehomestead @judysfunnyfarm1 We just added slats. The only thing I don’t like is that the mattress sits higher than the feather bed would have, so it hides some of the beautiful headboard. I’m pretty sure you could also have a custom size mattress made to fit an old bed.

Despite the dark clouds it was soo beautiful this morning! I wanted to be outside when Tommy napped so I grabbed my laptop and a few free weights and got to wurk
.
My neighbor was outside and I can remember the day I would have felt embarrassed and went inside. I still remember the days of walking into the gym and feeling insecure and embarrassed that I had no freaking clue what I was doing. I legit opened up Pinterest work outs and would workout for hours at a time until my watch read “750 calories”.
.
Like WHUT?! Now I workout from the comfort of my own home, my workouts are typically 30 minutes tops, and I have super trainers that create programs FOR me so I never have to guess what to do. SO MUCH BETTER!!!!
.
Sidenote...girlfriend, never be ashamed to be seen working out. You’re already killing it simply by making the time TO workout. And you know what? My neighbor yelled over “working hard!” And it was an awesome little moment and I was like yep, air high five, let’s keep going!

These boys had one of their BEST weekends.  They played 6 games over 2 days.  4 today starting at 7:15am and ending at 9:30 pm...AND we still have a 2 hour drive home.  The siblings made their own fun too.  It was a long weekend.  Watching them play together, on and off the field, doing what they love was just fun.  Watching them pray together after the ring ceremony... ️

What's your hidden talent?

Flower arrangements are so fun for me and something that comes incredibly easy  Fun Fact: I actually considered going to VoTech for floral design but decided against it. Now I take classes whenever the kids schedules give me some open time.

Last night I had the opportunity to add a pop of color to NOSA's Evening Under the Palms for the second year in a row. All the complements made my heart swell but it wouldnt have been possible with out stunning flowers from @localflowerco and @southerngracefloralmarket

The boys went on a snake hunt out in our fields. No snakes, but they came back with these for me. ️ It’s funny, because there were no flowers or gifts for Mother’s Day this year. It was too soon after Greg’s injury and it just didn’t happen. So the boys brought me this handpicked bouquet from our own field and said “Happy Mother’s Day!” Then our neighbor brought over a huge professional flower arrangement she’d received for Mother’s Day. She was headed out of town and didn’t want to toss the flowers, so she asked me to enjoy them for both of us while she was gone. Her flowers are gorgeous and it was so nice of her to share them with me, but the truth is, I like my hand-picked, delivered-late wildflowers best.

Knowing there is another little one on the way makes time tickling my sweet boy all the more treasured. Knowing that soon he will be a 3-year-old and start favouring boy things over cuddles with mommy makes me feel blessed to capture this image. Knowing that time will not stand still for me, I bring out my camera as my only defence against forgetting these moments, freezing each stage of our lives because it will pass all too quickly. One day I will blink and he will be a man stealing another woman's heart. I will always be his mother, but I cannot keep him forever ⠀

What was the last memory you froze?⠀

My mother in law snuck my a $20 in my Mother’s Day card so, since the kids were out at a ball game with Nick, I treated myself to fajitas at Chuy’s. I could only eat about 1/3 of it before I was stuffed so I packed it all up to take to work for lunch tomorrow. But I was sure to take special precautions in case any of them come home hungry tonight. This. Is. Mom’s. Food.  #isthatclear?#bigfamilyproblems #bringingupboys @chuysrestaurant

Belated day 14 #hereisourhomeschool challenge: Nature Study. I have mentioned before how much we love our #exploringnaturewithchildren curriculum. It is so easy to follow and is so full of good information. Aside from that, we try to get the boys outside daily and immerse them in nature as much as we can. I don’t want to admit that this is not always easy for me to do. I can get so caught up with with everything that needs to be accomplished inside our home that I have to actively make sure I’m getting us outside of it enough.
In the second picture, our second son put our painted lady caterpillars next to a butterfly book to “make them feel more at home.” ️🦋

I really like this Pastor from Hope City Church, Jeremy Foster. This is from part 1 of his series “Love, Sex and Marriage.” Whether you are a “believer” or not, this is solid advice. “We expect so much out of a spouse and yet we are not even living up to our own expectations because we are so busy looking at somebody else.” #bringingupgirls #bringingupboys

.
And dammit I really have fallen in love with myself! I mean, I’m just generally a curvy gal. I have thick thighs and baby birthing hips that make wearing jeans hard to wear without a gap in the back. But freaking a, isn’t it kind of cool that my body grew/birthed 3 humans, then recovered, and is leaning out and building muscle now? You read it everywhere, but our bodies are for real so amazing.

So here I am in all my thick, curvy glory rocking a 2 piece and loving my self! And I challenge all of my VG girls to jump in on this challenge!

@happinessisasunbeam The most important bits xx

GCSE’s I feel like pulling my eyeballs right out of my bloody head🤪We went through it with the eldest and now it’s time for the baby (well..he’ll always be my baby). But this is truly brutal this time round. The boy is just ‘far to cool for school’. He thinks going surfing and skating is a form of studying. ‘Oy Vey’ !!! He’s got good grades all throughout school and NOW he decides...life’s for living...ffs! Talk about timing!  So I put my goddam MAD mum hat on and threatened to give the surfboards and skateboards to the little shits down the road if I didn’t see some ‘KNUCKLE down and study like beast’ this week. I got home from work and went to check out how we were progressing...only to find him fast asleep with that shitting rap music  blaring out...thank god for old and almost deaf neighbours.Now I hear the kids studying are saying they’re under too much pressure...for the love of god

Summer of 2001! ️
My first summer free of the shackles of a shit marriage! After a decade of repression of my wild outdoor spirit... This first summer was spent learning to windsurf on the lovely Khadakwaslala Lake and taking the boys to Corbett National Park! 
Which was a crazy adventure... from traveling by train across the country in MAY, to us running for our lives from a tiger scare in the middle of a stream bath, to an all day fully exposed Jeep drive across Corbett during which Rohit had high fever, watching others in our group get charged by an elephant in musth, freezing cold bath at Nainital after a futile attempt to get a beer, a horrendous all night traffic jam while I puked non stop, almost getting run over by a train on a level crossing and finally a mad dash to just barely catch our train at Delhi station! 
Don't know if this counts as adventure or trauma!

@jesseprentiss Rangers Apprentice Series and Brotherband Series by John Flanagan

@motysunite @jesseprentiss thank you! 😘

Every Mother's Day, I do a shoot with my kids. I love these little men. Every day I see glimpses that they're truly becoming men; men that look to Jesus. 
This week, Aiden said his bus driver plays worship music on the way to school and even though it's not his favorite kind, it makes him feel peaceful and he likes it.

Alec STILL asks me to play outside with him AND he has been constantly asking if I want him to cook things for me.

God is good to me. .

The three year old took this  last Saturday midway through an afternoon of 'tents' in the living room, only enhanced by a soundtrack of Disney (see ️️also captured by my son). I look like I have been crying, but in fact I was just incredibly tired.
.
.
Today we sat in garden doing Cbeebies stickers and later had a picnic tea in the carpet tent. A wolf kept coming to steal our sandwiches. My son wanted to punch it, but instead we decided to trick it by pretending to throw our crisps for it to catch. Before long my son told me it was actually a friendly wolf who wanted to have a shower with him, so we went upstairs and he washed Wolfie's hair and brushed his teeth. Wolfie chose two bedtime stories (Scarecrow's Wedding and Apple Tree Farm, FYI). He wouldn't hold my son's hand so I had to (repeatedly) ask him to do so. He then chose the Bing bunny teddy to sleep with while my son had the panda bear. We said that daddy and my older son would be so pleased to meet Wolfie themselves when they came back from their night away tomorrow. My little boy fell asleep cuddling Wolfie. .

Day 9 of #hereisourhomeschool challenge: Math. The tipping point of why we began homeschooling. Our oldest, who was in first grade last year, would always say that math was his favorite. We then could never understand why he was falling so far behind in math in school, needing extra help, not able to finish work, and yet at home he was teaching himself multiplication in order to play a game? Right Start Math has been a great fit for our two kinesthetic learners this year. Our youngest started level A this spring and our oldest is doing level B. It is so engaging and helps them to understand and visualize why numbers do what they do through manipulatives, math games, and an abacus.  Our oldest has come a long way since last year, not because of anything negative regarding his school, but simply because we needed something that worked well with his leaning style. We are grateful to have found something that has worked well for both of them so far! 🧮

@ourhabitathome This just makes me smile! Homeschooling is all about giving our kids joy in learning. If we can help them realize the fun that's possible within their learning...then we'll have them hooked on this thing called "lifelong learning". Nice work!

@three.little.lads.wc @ourhabitathome Thank you!! Some days that can be such a challenge but it is one of our favorite aspects of homeschooling so far!

Piedmont Park
My kid didn’t hit the homerun today.

This time, my kid was the one who let the ball roll right between his legs with bases loaded in the last inning of the last game of the season.

My kid missed a play that we practiced a hundred times the day before

and when it happened, everything inside my overly-competitive self screamed.

I wanted to scream at him.

I was so angry.

I was embarrassed that my kid’s misstep cost us the game.

He’s 7.

I simmered as he packed up his things.

I thought— ‘of all the times to miss the play
does he even realize what he just did
that it cost his team the game’

and as he walked out of the dugout with shrugged shoulders and confusion on his face, he asked me, “was it my fault?” and I felt a shameful sinking feeling when I realized that I had a choice.

I had a choice to dwell on this moment of frustration and forget a season of base hits.

I had a choice to let the outcome of a 3-second play ruin the remainder of my son’s day or fuel his passion to celebrate, even when finishing in second place.

I had a choice to badmouth a coach and point a finger or make this a learning moment. 
I had a choice to be embarrassed of my kid for one mistake or point out his many highlights. 
I had a choice to bury last week’s grand slam under my current disappointment.

My kid wasn’t the one who hit the homerun today.

He wasn’t the one who made the tough play.

But you see, every day can’t be a homerun day, or even a .300 day.

And it’s my job to let go of the “my kid has to be the best” mentality in favor of age-appropriate actions for little league.

This phase we’re in?

It’s less about the plays we don’t make and all about developing a love for the game.

There will come a time to drill harder, relive the replays, and be super focused on correcting the mistakes,

but even as an adult, I have more than my fair share of error-filled days

and I know he wanted more than anyone to make that play.

I don’t always make the right choice, 
but acknowledging my son’s effort has never felt wrong,

and neither has choosing grace.

Not every day will be a homerun day or even a .300 day

but he makes me proud all the days. *Whitney Ballard

@elisa_marie1988 @mifamilyoffive totally agree with you! And us too!! My husband was opposed to it at first and only said 1 year. That was 4 years ago, lol. I wouldn’t change a thing though! It definitely is not easy, but I know this season in life is short and will pass right before us in a blink. Like that country song says “You’re gonna miss this.” ❤️

@elisa_marie1988 @alyssa_rahn I think it’s so important to have that time! And however you’d like to do it is ok! I have found serving at church to be wonderful. It’s only a couple hours, but I really loved it. That’s me though, of course 😊 It’s funny how motherhood changes us! I think you’re an awesome, devoted mom ❤️

Teaching my son has been its own lesson. He is definitely his own little man.

Through the grace of God this mama is learning to find balance; being firm and asking for respect, while understanding his personal struggle with receiving instruction.

It’s not always easy. Sometimes it’s downright hard. But day by day we both make it work, and are the better for the relationship. Of course, humor never hurts!

Hey! If you are new here, welcome! Figured it has been a while since I introduced myself so here we go--- I'm Heather  Born and raised in a small town in PA. I married my high school sweetheart turned sailor and for the last 12 years we've been following his career around the world. Jacksonville, Fl is currently home at least for the next few years. We have 3 very active boys Grant, Trent and Wyatt. G & T play ice hockey and their schedules seem to dictate our life but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I love barefoot gardening and supporting local agriculture and shops. Oh and there's thing called young living essential oils that I call work but it's really fun educating the people I love about better options for their families

Dinner:
•salmon& broccoli crustless quiche (Recipe: @pinchofnom )
•sweet potato mash
•sweetcorn
•strawberry, blueberry & banana muffin (Recipe: @baby_led_weaning_cookbook )

Finley ate about half of his but Jacob got stuck into everything! He screams a bit with frustration if he can’t get something into his mouth quick enough but I’ve learnt that a bit of distraction can calm him down and then he will carry on eating  .

Yes you got it - Brandon (15) totally upped his freestyle game by standing up with Conor (8) on his shoulders. One handed!  
Whatever next?! The freestyle section really brings out the fun side of the Tigers riders

Bookstore date with my firstborn son!  This kid is my mini-me in so many ways. We both love words and vocabulary and amazing books and deep thoughts. 🤓 It took us three years to read through the Harry Potter books (me reading aloud to him) and he’s been re-reading the books on his own ever since. (Note: I know Harry Potter is controversial in certain circles but in our family we are huge fans for SO many reasons.) For our date last week, Malachi chose to visit a bookstore in order to pick up a copy of Quidditch Through the Ages to round out his collection. Then we sat at dinner and had deep discussions about bravery, friendship, and the complexities of Snape’s heart.  We also pondered which character was the most evil of all. If you have an opinion, I’d love to hear it below...

@yankeehomestead @crunchy_like_granola_in_yogurt I totally agree! Umbridge is the worst! 😈
