Our poor cat toby has been coned.


He has 2 ruptured abscess. Don’t google that btw, unless you want to be grossed out. More than likely these were caused prior to us even getting him from the animal shelter. The typically show in cats bit by other cats… since Toby is indoors and never around other cats… we just are assuming this was something he came with already on him. That being said, yall, pets are expensive. Do keep that in mind before purchasing them. We do however really love our cat, he is such a chill and laid back cat. To put up with our kids, you have to be :) – my husband who hates cats, really loves him. Otherwise, he would have never taken him to the vet to be treated for this.

So yay, to healing and hopefully cone free life by the weekend. It has been a learning experience.

To keep the conversation going.

What is your largest vet bill and for what?
Where do you draw the line? :-) Im truly curious.

2013 Homeschool Curriculum


I wrote a post about “a day in the life” home schooling our boys for Boba. It also explains what curriculum we are using :) – so for those curious about that head over to BOBA’s Blog to read my post.

7-1 – Switch

If any of you are frequent blog readers, you know that today Google Reader retired :) – aka closed shop … no longer works. I know many of you all used that to read my blog and others…

So if you were curious what you should use now. I highly recommend Freedly! Ive tried bloglovin? something like that and honestly did not like its format. Freedly is much better.

If you used google reader you can easily transfer those feeds over to freedly right here.

Don’t forget to add my blog to the feed if it wasnt before :)
Also follow me on facebook to keep up with post there too.

With Google Reader retiring, Ive decided its time to update my blog some… hope to get that done some time during the month of July before schooling starts in August. :)

Caleb’s age… began her journey with Cancer

Ive posted about this young lady before on my twitter… but I just had to do another post about her.
I follow her on instagram and youtube… shes a beautiful spunky 13 year old, who since Caleb’s age (8) has been battling cancer over the years.

Her cancer is spreading… and the news she got just last week was not great news… and I just cant seem to stop thinking about her!… I am praying for her… that the Lord would heal her but even more so that she would come to know the Lord…. God is the author of life… and while I will never understand why sweet children have to suffer through something as horrible as cancer… what I do know is that the Lord gives…. and He takes away… and we are not promised tomorrow… and I just pray for this sweet dear ones soul… she will be cancer free one day… it may not be here on earth…. but I know that if we confess the Lord is Lord, he is just… and good… and gracious… and He promises us an eternity free from pain… free from cancer… free from sorrow….

Please pray for her. Her name is Talia… and if you watch the video below you will one, smile… at just how bubbly and fun she is… but also your heart will ache for her… Pray… please.

Organized my Pins

I tell you… you could spend an entire day organizing your Pinterest! I spent way to long on it today trying to get some sort of organization down…. with an upcoming move (more on that later), I want to have some inspiration down, as well as some organization ideas. I even organized meals by categories! That took forever it seemed….

So if you are on Pinterest & would like to follow me. I’m @dreawood :)

For fun, here are a few recent pins of mine.

Seriously how cute is this?

I can’t wait to decorate our new school room.

My boys love clouds… that and maps :)
