It’s the end of the world. Well, it’s the end of Elliott’s Minecraft world anyway 

The boys have really been into Minecraft lately and Elliott discovered mods for Minecraft PE. I warned him countless times that while mods may work, they may not always work correctly or they could even corrupt his game data, meaning he could lose all his world’s.  

Some of the mods began causing problems right away.  No one could join his world and he was no longer able to join our family realm.… Read More

Gavin isn’t doing well this morning :(

I was up really late with the two youngest boys and woke up to Gavin doubled over in pain, feeling like he was going to vomit.  

It’s really frustrating to try and get information from Gavin about how he feels because that’s a skill known as expressive language and Gavin is sorely lacking in that department.

I’m ready for them to go back because I really need the time during to the day to help make this site turn a profit (ads etc).  … Read More

I think the cookout went okay

We got home a couple hours ago from our first family cookout/get together since Lizze moved home. I think all things considered, it went pretty well.  It’s going to be a work in progress as we move forward but move forward we must.  

The boys had fun, although our stay was almost cut really short because Gavin had really bad cramps and nothing could provide him with relief. 

He said that it was hurting before we left but he thought there might be pop at the cookout and didn’t want to ruin his chances of having some.… Read More
