Another Family Life Update

Hey, cheered on moms! I thought I’d write another quick post on what’s been going on for us as a family lately, and what I’ve been up to behind the scenes. First of all, we’re in the process of relocating to another town, so I wrote about my best tips for moving with kids. We […] Read more…

Moving Check-In

We’re still alive, and we’re still moving. As a blogger, I can’t stand to see Cheered On Mom neglected, but as a crazy busy mom who is typing one-handed on her phone while holding a sick toddler, I have other priorities. We’re really amazed at how God is helping us with this move. Little example: […] Read more…

Friday Favorites: Fields and Family

ONE My Grandma This past week, we celebrated my grandma’s life. She’s joining her husband of 50+ earthly years in heaven, and I’m so glad for her. I’ll miss her, though. She was an OB tech/nurse and then co-owned a nursery for babies before retiring. She was all about family and, after God, we were […] Read more…

Spring Bucket List Check-In

I truly didn’t know that Spring would be a busy season for me as a mom until Kai’s last year of preschool. Oh, how naive I was. Looking back, we packed this Spring with all kinds of appointments and meetings (plus minor surgery) in addition to the super fun stuff. Let’s take a look at […] Read more…

Everything We Loved About Kansas City

I’m so glad and so nostalgically sad to be back after our Kansas City getaway! It was the first time our family of four took a vacation out-of-state, and it went amazingly well. My parents joined us for the first two days, and we had a great time together! For today’s favorites, I’m sharing everything […] Read more…

Quotes from Kai

My son is officially five years old! He’s so sweet, creative, bright, and thoughtful. And he keeps us laughing! I just had to share some of my favorite quotes from him over the last year. “God just made me to not like veggies.” “This is the mightiest sock in the world!” “There is one God, […] Read more…

Our Weekend

Happy Monday, friends! This was not at all the day that I planned, but that’s not surprising by now. 🙂 I was supposed to have a dentist appointment, and get Kai back in preschool for the first time in a week! (Insert side eye to the unnamed virus my kids got originally…) And it was all […] Read more…

Top 10 Memories with My Husband

I can’t tell you how much fun I had reminiscing as I put this together. It was really difficult to narrow all the memories down to ten! I decided to list them by date, with the earliest first, because there’s no way I could rank them. Get ready for pictures of us with our baby […] Read more…

Top 10 Photos of 2017

I can’t believe 2017 is wrapping up! But I’m so glad that I wrote this, because it motivated me to look at my photos over the past year. Thanks, Perfectly Port Family, for the topic and linkup! It was SO hard to pick only 10. Most of what I’m sharing are just regular old pictures […] Read more…

A Day in the Life

Today you get an inside look at an everyday kind of day with me, a SAHM to my four-year-old, Kai, and one-year-old, Sylvie. I’m living dangerously and chose to document yesterday and get it online for you today. One thing I love about these posts is seeing how similar all our lives are as moms. […] Read more…
