I have been on the fence about posting this for a while, but since today is Father's Day, it seemed appropriate. This is not a glamorous instagram worthy shot , but this is my hubby @cheekydaddy and this is who he is to a T. The selfless, unconditional loving, caring father, who while in the hospital recently with some scary health issues, was more worried about his kids. He wanted to make sure his kids weren't scared or worried about their dad, so he made them laugh. This is why we love him. Happy Fathers Day sweetie. Thank you for being our rock even when life had kicked you down. We love you more than we can even begin to say.
One day maybe I'll tell the whole story, but this is also the reason for our recent change to a gluten free, dairy free, anti-inflammatory diet. Sometimes doctors and medicine can only do so much. 😕

Dinner tonight was chicken fajitas with grilled onions and peppers, avocado's, and homemade gluten free tortilla's from @againstallgrain recipe book. Soooo yummy!
We have officially been gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, caffeine free for a month now and much to my surprise it's been easier than we thought! We've found some really yummy recipes and substitutes that we love and some not so much, but we're still learning. What are some of your favorite recipes and products?

Our grocery shopping is looking a little different these days...

Finishing up the school year with these cute little scientists. One of the things I love about homeschooling is that when you're just DONE with books, we get out, we go to a museum, go learn something outside. #makelearningfun

Torture Tuesday was all about the counter canter and this girl rocked it! Always impressing me with her drive and determination.

Coming home after vacations is rough. We had a short little getaway to the @omnilacosta and it was awesome! I highly recommend this resort. The rooms were great, the grounds were beautiful, and the family pool area was AMAZING! I highly recommend for families. They have water slides, a splash pad, and 3 pools. Needless to say, we were worn out at the end of the day.

Yesterday's lesson was SO good. Look at them go!! @mbmolt1 is whipping them into shape. I can't believe how much they've grown as a team in such a short amount of time. Proud of my girl and her moose. 😊

Defend! Defend! @westcoastkravmaga teaching our kiddos how to defend themselves if they needed to.

He loves his girl as much as she loves him. It's fun to watch these two turning into such a good team. They've come a long way in such a short amount of time. So proud of them both for all the hard work.

Annual Dover @doversaddlery tent sale trip with these horse crazy girls and they made out like bandits! Ended it with lunch at the yummiest pizza from @pizza900lagunahills Who's in for next year? 😊

Horse show Saturday with these two cuties! They watched, they learned, and they planned. @mbmolt1 they are ready to work 😊 #futuregrandprix #temeculanationalhorseshow #mbshowstables

A lot of to-do's done this past weekend. We FINALLY built the chunnel (chicken tunnel) for the girls to have full time access to their coop and the run. Then we built our little above ground organic garden and planted a couple things. Hoping we can keep everything alive 🤞#diy
