Hmmmm… honestly I don’t know how to start. This is my very first blog post ever! What do you want to know? Not sure. Where should I start? Don’t know. But I might have one or two words of wisdom. Or maybe a good story. Or possibly even a couple of tricks up my sleeve. And hey, I definitely have a few cute kids! So here goes. Read on and enjoy!

These are my girls. Seven and six and full of kicks! Someday they will be the life of the party. Right now they are creating a ton of dirty laundry. Along with their little brother…
As you can see, he was creating dirty laundry when this photo was taken. So I have more laundry now, than ever before, thanks to all my little munchkins. Lots of laundry equals lots of laundry detergent, and good detergent costs money.
Recently my wonderful sister-in-law mentioned a recipe for homemade laundry detergent that makes about five gallons with just three cheap ingredients. I thought, “I can do that.” And here we are. I have been using the recipe for about two weeks and I like it. I still use bleach for whites, (I am not a true Eco-Mom), fabric softener, and a stain remover if necessary. But the detergent seems to do its job. The clothes are clean. Check out Recipe #3 on 10 Homemade Laundry Soap Detergent Recipes. Is it safe for HE machines? I don’t know. More on that one later. Sleep tight and thanks for reading my first blog post ever ;-)

I live in Mexico with my hubby and four kiddos. I keep busy with homeschooling, traveling, and my Bible ministry. I love photography and writing, so I blog. My family is a little nutty but nutty is never boring and always an adventure. And I love adventure!
