It’s been a long week. The Whole30 program is progressing, but I’m still not seeing much improvement; however, my husband is feeling better and is noticing his pants are fitting better. Continue reading Whole30 – Days 9-13 – I had a bite and a slip!
I have severe anxiety. Not just that, I have multiple anxiety triggers: social situations, driving, and general anxiety (it can happen at any time with no warning). I used to be so scared to let people know. But now I realize it is okay. If I can help one person, I feel that I will have accomplished something. Continue reading Do You Have Anxiety? It Could Be Affecting Your Sleep
I feel like I am so behind. Starting the Whole30 program has left me very tired. I’ve been wanting to start many posts about homeschool for a while now, but I’ve just been too tired. Sound familiar?
As homeschool moms (or dads), we have a tendency to spend all our energy on our children. I can relate. My boys are in 10th and 9th grade right now, so Crown Academy is officially a High School. It’s hard to believe. Just the other day they were babies!! Continue reading 3 Top Homeschool Resources
These two days on the Whole30 were a little worse than previous days. Continue reading Whole30 – Days 4 & 5
It’s been a long day today, so I never made it around to writing the Day 2 post for our Whole30 journey. Continue reading Whole30 – Days 2 & 3
After many years of struggling with weight and health, we decided to try the Whole30 plan. We have read many different plans, and even tried a few. Nothing ever seemed to work well.
However, the Whole30 seems different. The book takes you through the steps, and even lets you know that there will be tough days. It’s not going to be a picnic. Our bodies are going to be detoxing from all of the sugar and carbs we have eaten. Continue reading Our First Day of the Whole30 Program

I have been wondering when to start our new year of homeschool, and this is the week. Baseball season is over. Our oldest made it to the All-Star team and went to State. Then we had family come to visit. I wanted to start in July, but life got in the way. And that’s okay.
One of the beauties of homeschooling is the chance to learn life lessons. Each state requires a certain amount of time or days per school year (it is 180 days for our state). There is not a mandatory start date, nor an ending date. As long as you get your days in, everything is good. Continue reading Our First Week of Homeschool This Year
Oh the joys of family life. I love my extended family dearly, but it’s true what some say. After a few days, it is time for everyone to go.
I am an extreme introvert. I don’t like a lot of noise. Yes, I have 3 boys, but after so many years I can usually tune them out. I think most moms get to this point with their own children. Continue reading 4 Items to Consider When Family Comes to Town
I’m sure you are wondering about the title of our blog. We had 3 kids in 15 months, making a family of 5. It was a big adjustment. Married in 2001, 1st son in 2002, and then twin boys in 2003.
Who We Are:
We are Fred and Kim. After going through 15 years of parenting highs and lows, we decided to start a blog to help others. We plan to have articles on the early, middle, and teen years. Each stage has its own challenges, and we have always said that things don’t get better, they get different. We never liked it when people would say, “It will get better.” Some things may become easier, but then there will be new challenges. Continue reading Welcome to 3 in 15 makes 5: A family blog
