Quaranteam: Living Intentionally not Accidently

I heard the word quaranteam and decided to embrace the word as a lifestyle in our home. While we are in quarantine due to the Covid-19 virus, we can still be intentional instead of accidental with how we are living.

I can choose to be an intentional mama instead of an accidental one.

I can make decisions that will better my family and my kids despite the circumstances we are currently living in. This means I can chose to sit and watch another movie about dragons, super heroes or dinosaurs and leave my phone in the kitchen and focus on the movie and enjoy it with my kids.

Enjoying the sandbox!

I can make intentional decisions everyday instead of just letting everything happen accidently around me and to me. I will choose intentionality so that a year from now I will look back at this time of quarantine and social distancing as a blessing instead of a curse.

I will be thankful for all the growth I experienced as an individual, as a mom, as a wife, and even as a blogger. I will be thankful for the way our family grew together as a team. I will look back and enjoy the photos of my boys playing soccer at the dog park and playing in the sandbox.

How can YOU choose to be intentional today? Let’s share our ideas!

Why I Started Knights on LLamas

Thank you for joining me on this journey! I am a mom of three young knights and I’m excited to share fun stories and aha moments with you. Raising these knights hasn’t always been easy but I am so glad I have been blessed by all three of them!

My husband, our 3 Knights and me in Norway.

I started this blog in hopes of encouraging other moms of boys. I am tired of hearing comments about how hard boys are to raise. And, NO!, we’re not trying for a girl. We are happy with three kids and even if we wanted another baby another little BOY would be very welcome in this house.

I chose the name Knights on LLamas because Knights are brave warriors who look out for others. But my Knights don’t ride white horses and I don’t want to pretend like they do. In our house things are imperfect and real so our Knights ride on Llamas…..oh and my dad owns Llamas so that is a fun and unique part of our adventure!

This will be my place to share what I have experienced over the past 11 years. Not to tell everyone how to do it the right way, because I’m not the perfect mom, but rather to find joy together in this adventure of raising knights!
