I’ve felt the need recently to put us on a schedule – you can read all about those thoughts over here. But quite honestly it’s really hard to sit down and think about how the day needs to go. By the time I have a chance to actually sit down with my thoughts I’m too tired to run through a days worth of events, seeing as I just barely survived them. So when I found a schedule on Pinterest (that I’m still trying to re-find!!!) I quickly jotted it down and personalized it…
And this is what it plays out to when all is said and done… with one semi-homeschooling preschool aged toddler and 10 month old twins. It gets the job done, and gives me enough of a guideline to allow for changes if needed, or to simply remind me where to go next with my time.
Our Toddler + Twins Schedule
6am – Mama wake up, Personal breakfast, devotional & scripture study
6:30am – Q wakes up, Sing songs, Pray, Read Scriptures together, breakfast

Oh my holy cuteness! Jumpsuits!!! Trending right now, and forever more in my mind, are jumpsuits. These are just too cute to keep to myself. Stripes, ruffles, patchwork, florals… you name it and they’ve put in on a jumpsuit this season. Here’s just a few that I’ve found so far…
This spring is shaping up to be AH-MAZINGLY adorable! If you follow Brickyard buffalo on Instagram I’m sure you’ve seen the leggings and now moccasin frenzy that crashed their site – Cray cray! And now I am seeing bowties and knotted headbands everywhere! I snagged both sets of these beauties on B/B and am now
