Bruneau Sand Dunes State Park!!

                                                                The new Rig!

Hey everyone!!

Wow , what an awesome camp trip we just took to Bruneau Sand Dunes State Park! I wanted to share with you all about it. This was our first camp trip with our new to us Fifth wheel trailer. Lets just say it was time for an upgrade from our 1978 18 foot prowler that we have camped in for 8 years with five people and two dogs.  Now our camp trips consist of 5 people and 3 dogs, so we definitely needed a bigger trailer, with an actual bed for us parents !!!! Anyways on to the park, Bruneau San Dunes is located 64 miles South of Boise Idaho. It is desert camping so you would want to try this park in spring weather like we did. Summer time would be just too hot I think. The camp ground was very nice and clean with pull through and back in sites. It also  had  electric and water hook ups. They  had restrooms and showers available .  When leaving the camp ground there was a dump site so that you could empty your tanks prior to heading home. They do allow dogs but they must be on leashes at all times and you have to pick up after them. We had a wonderful time just hanging out and walking around. The Dunes themselves were so pretty and my kids had a blast sliding down them. We brought our own sleds but you can rent sleds too. There is a lake to fish in, but the down side was there is only one dock to the lake so you have to squeeze together while fishing . I will have to say my favorite part was looking through the telescopes at all the stars. Bruneau San Dunes has an observatory which you can pay to look through at the stars and it was quite spectacular but just star gazing from camp is amazing too! If you are headed to Idaho I highly recommend you check it out ! Just be prepared to dump your pockets and shoes from all the sand !!!! Here are some pics of our adventure!! God Bless!!!

Hello everyone!

Today I just wanted to give a short little explanation about my curriculum books that I have created for my children. First of all, I created them specifically for my daughter that learns differently from the norm. She is a right-brained thinker and a very artistic and critical thinker. My daughter did not like the standard read and answer questions as most curriculum books are laid out this way. So I had to get creative. I realized she learned best when she was able to choose a subject that interested her, and the information stuck in her head! I was so thrilled! So I scoured the internet trying to find a curriculum that would do just what she needed. I did not find anything that I liked so I decided to create my own. And so A Christian Delight Directed Curriculum was born!!! Both of my girls use …

How To Budget (Envelope System)

Good Morning Everyone!

It is a wonderful morning and I am up and at em!!!! I already did my workout for the day and I am feeling good. Today we are going to focus on how to start a budget that you can stick to. I know for most people this is very hard but I promise if you can get a budget and stick to it you will conquer your finances. Budgeting is the number one way that has allowed me to stay at home with my kids and live on one income. I am strict and budget every dollar my husband brings in. Two years ago my husband was able to take a lower-paying job with less stress making half of what he was making because we budgeted and were frugal. Now that he has a better paying job which we are so blessed that he has, we understand that we can make it on very little and still have a happy healthy lifestyle all because of budgeting. So let's get to it!

First of all, when starting a budget you need to calculate your monthly expenses. I'm talking mortgage, rent, utilities, clothing, …

Do I Dare Talk About This??

Do I dare talk about this????

Well, lets get real and talk about when your child is strong willed and discipline, I know this is a touchy subject but thought I would share my view of it. Speaking from experience I know what its like to lose your mind as a parent when your child is defiant and just refuses to obey. My middle daughter was quiet a character as a toddler and young child, but as a preteen she is growing into a very lovely young lady. She has tried my patience many times and there were times I felt as though I just disciplined her all day long. She was a very stubborn toddler and child but because I am a christian I believe what the word of God says. I would rather give a quick swift spank and be done with the correction then to drag it out by forcing her to sit in time out all day long.

''Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.''
