J House Vlogs  I'm a homeschooling mom of 5 in Kansas City. I love sleeping in,trying new things,books,old homes, travel, kayaking,all food,God,and my family.

Here's the last pictures of our Utah adventure! My goal was to be in the mountains every day during our trip and I think it happened. πŸ‘Š I love the beauty of the world around me and having the privilege to share it with my children. They became quite the little hikers and I'm proud of them! #jhousevlogs #familyhike #gooutside #adventuretime

In my church meetings this weekend we were challenged to take 10 days to step away from social media (and any other media that doesn't uplift us). I'm excited to participate! So today I begin. πŸ‘ I can tell that it's something my soul needs. A break from the constantly updating feed, the temptation to compare and feel less than, the easy distraction pulling my time and attention from things that matter most (my family, my home, and my relationship with God). I truly think this will be helpful to my struggle with anxiety, discouragement, overwhelm, and depression. I'm grateful for the challenge (since I might not have had the strength to do it on my own πŸ™ˆ). If this idea pulls at your heart, please join with me! And together we can see the changes in our lives. πŸ’•Jeremy will continue uploading our YouTube videos and other videos on Facebook. But I'll be away for a bit. πŸ‘‹πŸ˜˜ #jhouseout #socialmediafast

πŸ’— This weekend church has my soul bursting with the messages of hope, encouragement, the love of our Savior Jesus Christ, and practical suggestions for how to seek improvement in my own life and family. Its just what my discouraged heart needed to hear. So thankful for God's hope, His generous love, His forgiveness, and the chance to begin again on this Sunday. πŸ’•#happysunday

Donut falls was incredible!! The waterfall literally goes through the rock. Nature is amazing to me! And... poor Laura was disappointed that there weren't actual donuts at donut falls. πŸ©πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ I can't really blame her for that though. Donuts always sound delicious. πŸ˜‹ Question of the day -- have you been hiking before? Where have you hiked? #jhousevlogs #familyhike

River rafting! We took the whole family out on the river. A couple of the kids were a little nervous at first (Laura was worried the raft would pop 😳) but they all warmed up to it pretty quickly and we definitely enjoyed it! It was a new way for us to "adventure" as a family and experience the beauty of the mountains. We opted to have a guide help us raft down the river (even though the river was gentle and the "rapids" minimal) because we didn't know what to expect and wanted to have both of our hands free to help the kids. It was a great first experience and now I look forward to taking the kids on more and bigger rapids as they get older! #familytravel #homeschool #travelingwithkids #adventuretime #jhousevlogs p.s. The first picture and the last picture are two of my favorite of the trip!

Me and my running buddy! It's crazy to have a kid old enough to really run with me... now I have to try to keep up with him! πŸ™ˆ It was beautiful to run in Utah. The challenge will be to keep it up back home. 😬 #jhousevlogs

What a fun climbing spot!! The kids loved it! I enjoyed the creativity that went into the space. And that the kids got to push their limits and explore in a safe way. 😊 #jhousevlogs

The best part of Utah is seeing people we love - friends, extended family, and MY SISTER. πŸ’— The river is beautiful... but family is the awesomest. 😊 #jhousevlogs

Our first big hike in Utah as a family! We hiked Battle Creek Falls Trail. I loved it. I've always liked hiking, but I think it is becoming my favorite hobby. Ooo... but I also really love kayaking. Okay, I guess those two are tied. 😊😊😊 #familytravel #hikingwithkids #jhousevlogs

Our trip to Utah is off to a great start! My favorite part was visiting a special quilt display at the Springville Art Museum. It was AMAZING. 😍😍😍 We also went to TWO parks, visited the college where Jeremy and I met (BYU), went grocery shopping, visited my sister and her family, and saw my parents. I have a feeling that our time in Utah is going to be wonderful, jam packed and exhausting πŸ€ͺ because I want to do everything, see everyone, and eat ALL the things. πŸ˜‹ #toomuchfun #jhousevlogs

Janae's smile cracks me up! She really commits to it! πŸ˜‚ Swipe πŸ‘‰ to see all the kids on our family outing to the local petting zoo. It's crazy to take the whole family to places that I used to take just little Isaac and baby Elise. #dejavu #homeschool #growingup #jhousevlogs

β›°We enjoyed learning about mountain ranges in the United States in preparation for our trip out to Utah! Do you like the mountains or the beach better? πŸ€” That is such a tough question for me because those are my two favorites!! I think I slightly lean towards the ocean... but it's close. Which makes mountains next to the ocean THE BESt!! πŸ™Œ #homeschool #roadschool #jhousevlogs

Janae is often found carrying around a baby doll and she loves wearing her backpack. I just adore watching her play! It's the cutest!! 😍😍😍 #jhousevlogs #18monthsold
