First-time mom’s, I have been where you are. Pregnancy and birth can seem terrifying and you may feel like you don’t know where to start - I’m here to say - don’t worry! I have birthed three little girls into this world ( feel free to read their birth stories ). The first time I found out I was pregnant, I was mortified. Why? Well,
This was such a fun activity for our kids ( I even had fun with it ). We took a little detour from our homeschool curriculum and decided to jump in to something our toddler has been interested in - rocks!

I have found that these are our kid's favorite ways to learn about the Bible.
The birth of our third little girl was a little over a week ago - she made her debut 2 weeks early and we were not anticipating it at all. It was a beautiful ( and slightly humorous ) experience. Although our 1.5 day stay at the hospital was full of quality bonding time, support and was a fantastic experience - we were ready to get home to our other two girls.
