When you have your last baby, you try to really soak in every last thing. The late-night feedings have a new allure. You linger over when to wean.

Lenoir City (or as the cool kids say, “The LC”) is starting to live up to its “city” name. Once a sleepy little town, Lenoir City is now booming with new homes and businesses cropping up all the time. The LC–just west of Farragut in Loudon County–is known for being “The Lakeway of the Smokies.” […]
Ah, the sounds of summer…birds chirping, lawn mowers humming, kids splashing in pools, and… “Mom, I’m booorrred.” I’m going to stop right here and say that I’m a proponent of year-round school (as a majority of the teachers gasp and say “no!”).

I’ve got my toes in the water, bottom NOT in the sand Several worries in my mind Gripping toddlers with each hand. Still, life is good today. Yeah, life is good today. I am at the pool and have been holding my breath for TWO hours. No, I am not under water. I have four young kids. AT […]

Eight weeks ago I began a journey with Gold’s Gym. This was a commitment I made to myself. I knew I wanted to shred this Mom bod up for summer 2017. When I started this journey the goal was to tone, strengthen and feel better about myself. I had no intention on sinking this bod into a two-piece […]
Finally, warm spring weather is here! It’s the perfect time to add a couple of accessories to an outdoor space for the long days of outside play and firefly catching nights. Here are a few ways to make your outdoor space a favorite place: Select an indoor/outdoor rug. These types of rugs are made to […]

We offer swimming in our on-site pool daily, with presence of a lifeguard, and lots of fun and educational field trips are incorporated […]
She grew and she grew and she grew. As our youngest of three, she seems to grow exponentially faster than the first two. As I pick her up from school at the end of the day, it seems like just yesterday she would smile so big sitting on the mat and playing with her toys. […]
