Stomach flu and oils

So yesterday at 530 am I get woke up by Colton.  Not in a great way but to him getting ready to get sick.  Fever of 101.  Great the stomach bug that is going around has hit......

This bug going around is the nastiest thing I have heard of for a while.  Lasting 3-4 days and is relentless.

So as an oil mom the first thing I did was run to the kitchen and grab the DigestZen oil and applied this to his stomach.  This oil  helps to ease queasiness.  This greatly helped me the last time I had the flu so I knew this was my go to oil.

Purchase Here

Once we awoke around 730 mom went to work.  The next thing I did was get out the OnGuard roller and OnGuard oil.  This oil is an effective alternative to a more natural way to boost immunity.  You can diffuse in the air to cleanse it.  It supports healthy immune function.  

Purchase here

I rolled this on Colton's feet and my feet.  To help support both of our immune systems.  I then started to diffuse it to cleanse the air.  

Colton slept most of the day.  When he would wake up I would oil his belly and feet again.  Luckily he only got sick one time  and had minimal diarrhea.  

Before bed I oiled him up  again and added Lavender and Frankincense to his chest.  Frank is another great oil to help support healthy cellular function.  It can also be used to help promote relaxation.  Lavender is also used to help relaxation.    I would say they worked well we slept all night and today he woke up and says mommy my belly is all better!!!!!!!!!

I am a firm believer of these oils.  Everyone who has had this bug it has lasted days and has been nasty!!.  I really believe had we not had the oils he would have been much sicker and it wold have lasted way longer.  

I love my oils!!!!!  If you would like to purchase them you can go here.

New Year, New Me

Hello Hello!!!!  So last year I failed t my blogging goal :(   This year I am going to try again.  I did help on another blogging website get some blogs out though :)  And still send from time to time to her.

So this year I am going to try the whole blogging thing again.  Blogging on a little bit of everything as usual.

I have noticed in the past year since my major surgery I am still working on alot of issues caused from the nasty little things they removed.  One major thing is hormone balance.  So I have been researching some all natural oil options and have a plan in line I think.   IT works I will be sharing.

What else is new....  Lets see Bailey is in full ballet mode gearing up for her competitions.  Hailey is loving being back in tumbling.  And Colton loves Pre K.  And I absolutely love my new job at Animal control

We have a new animal in the house.

Meet Nemo.  HE came to us at the shelter on 9/27 barely 3 days old.  Eyes still shut.  The girls and I thought for sure this was going to be a bad outcome but I would give it a hell of  a shot syringe and bottle feeding him.   Low and behold I am a cat whisperer!!!  Who knew?!?!?!  Well now he is my baby and I his mommy.  We have a tru mother "son" relationship.  HE will even whine until I lean over and pick him up and he stands up on his hind legs to be picked up!!!!!  HE is now a full fledge Christian.  We adopted him on the girls Birthday.  There was no way with the bond we had I cold take him back to the shelter.  So he is our Foster Fail lol

IF there is anything you would like me to blog on let me know!!  I have some ideas in the works hoping to get to this once a week or more

Guest Blogger!!!

Hello everyone!!!  Man the rain lately is killing us here!!  We went from desperately needing rain to holy crap that's to much!!!!

I am writing this blog today to let you in on a little secret...  I have become a guest blogger on a pretty big blogging site  :)  That is the reason I have not been on here as much.  I have concentrated on getting up some great blogs on that site for them.

Brandi's Guest Blogs

There is a link to all the blogs I have submitted to the site.  but don't just read mine.  There are some great blogs on there by Robin!!

My life has been so busy and I feel like I have been tossed in about 12 different directions.  I Think.......  Think.....  July is going to FINALLY slow down some.   Softball is over.  All the crazy running is over.  Ballet does start back up but that is a one night a week class so no biggie there.  Our back yard has had a complete makeover.......

Huge oak tree gone...  Old yucky fence gone...  New fence installed.  This has been another thing I have been busy with.  And I still have a lot of work to do in the yard.

Old Settlers is fast approaching and so is school!!!!!  This summer has flown by and I have not gotten to do half of what I have wanted to do.  Hoping this month being more open for time we can accomplish just that!

Service Area 20: Fathers Day Fishing

Yesterday the Service Area girl scouts held their second annual fishing day at Camp Soar.  WE do it to celebrate Father's Day!!

The girls always have a blast and always catch alot of fish.  We have a potluck, but the Service Area supplies the hot dogs to roast over the fire.  We also enjoyed the paddle boats that Camp Soar has as well.

We plan to keep doing this as long as there is interest.  It was a beautiful day and everyone had a great time!!!

First fish for Colton

Not sure if the paddle boat was broken or if it was the operators ;)

A tea filter basket!!  Since you can add hot or cold water to the Glasstic Bottle it makes it perfect for brewing loose leaf tea.

 It also works with anything you want to infuse in your water by keeping it away from your mouth when drinking!

End of First Grade

So this happened..  My girl finished first grade!!!  Hard to believe.   I will have a pre k, 2nd grade, and 5th grader all next year.  
The last few weeks of school were a blast   Lots of fun activities with the kiddos, including the rainbow fish play that had been working extra hard on.  Bailey played Angel fish.

The next fun thing was a pizza party that Colton and I went to and had fun with the kids.  After the pizza party was fun with shaving cream.  Oh my!!!  I have never seen the kids as hyper and excited as they were playing with the shaving cream.  Colton even got in on the action.  

We also gave Mrs. Neely her end of the year gift this day.  It was an "Orange you glad it's summer" basket.  I try to get creative with the gifts and this is what I came up with after cruising Pinterst.

I have to say between the kindergarten and first grade classes I think I got more attached to the first grade.  I spent more time in class doing math and reading centers with them and really got to watch them grow.  Very blessed to have teachers that love to have the parents come in and help out.
