About Us

Hi and welcome to my blog!  
I'm Shelly
I'm a stay-at-home mama of four.

My husband Josh 
is an elementary school teacher.

We are high school sweethearts.
Met in 2000, married in 2003.

We have identical twin sons,
Logan & Jack
They are in separate classes in the fourth grade
and they are mirror twins.
Interestingly, they are colorblind.
**Two years ago Logan was diagnosed with epilepsy after having two grand mal seizures.
His seizures have since changed to absent seizures & are uncontrolled.

Our third son,
is in first grade & super brilliant.
**He was diagnosed with asthma after having status asthmaticus (asthma that doesn't respond to treatment) and being hospitalized in the PICU (Pediatric ICU) for four days following a regular cold.

After our third son was born we moved to
My husband taught third/fourth & fifth grade there.
We lived there for five years.

I miscarried twice while in Alaska.
Then came our sweet rainbow baby
Carly May

Two years ago we moved to Central Washington
where Josh got a job & we bought our first house.

We are happily settling into our life here, 
grateful for a new chapter.

I'm so glad you're here with us!
