Our Family Christmas Letter

In thebhive family adventures, Uncategorized

Our version of a family Christmas letter. This post contains affiliate links. Dear World, We hope this “letter” finds you and your family well. I am pretty sure we all feel like 2018 came and left and we are still trying to figure out what happened. We are currently “residing at Johnny’s parent’s side yard”. Its good, we laugh because we never imagined ourselves here. They know that we don’t want to be living there but that we appreciate the yard and hospitality to…

No Need For Validation.

In Parenting and Education, Uncategorized

A situation was brought to life for my wife and I recently regarding validation in our society. The scene was as follows: my daughter asks my wife and I, “Have I eaten this apple far enough to throw it out?” Simple right? What a very basic question yet for some reason made my mind wonder why my daughter would ask this. So I responded with, “Chloe, why do you need us to approve you to throw out an apple core?”…

Hurricane Florence

In thebhive family adventures, Uncategorized

Hurricane Florence… you’re such a homewrecker. Our house sustained some damage about halfway through the storm, the winds are still howling like crazy so there could be more. We were prepared for that, we live off the intercoastal in the woods… it was bound to happen. Even though storms are truly a pain in the ass. Johnny and I had our fun and enjoyed the quality time spent with each other(you can see us prep the house over on Youtube). Hurricanes…

In Our Skoolie Conversion

Heaters Out Coolant Redirected We realized preparation was key today as we have been researching online about skoolie conversion, taking out the heaters and redirecting the coolant properly. So, we grabbed the listed items: bucket, rags and blanket, razor knife, and locking crescent wrench and headed for hazardous material (hazmat) cleanup on our future home! We have a rear engine (RE) Thomas Built Bus (Read More About Buzz Here) which means our source flow starts in the rear and goes…

Playing in the Rain & Matthew FINALLY gets to shoot his BB gun!

In thebhive family adventures

This day was amazing! We started it off with a downpour of rain so we turned it into a baking morning. I think when we were done we ended up having cookies for days afterward; which in a household six, that’s impressive. After that, I got a wild hair and told everyone to go outside because a memory had unearthed itself.  When the hurricanes would turn Florida into more of a swampland more than it already is, we used to…

Matthew & Dad ‘s Field Trip to the Beach

In thebhive family adventures, Uncategorized

Shiang-ling likes to poke fun at me whenever I get “irritated” by something Matthew’s done, or usually hasn’t done more likely and seems to always point out how similar we are mentally. He processes and overthinks things like Shiang-ling, but his demeanor and reactions are apparently all me. Which I think are great. I love getting to spend time with my son as I feel we are usually consumed by the ladies at the house and gives me a chance…

thebhive family Volunteers – Work On Wilmington

In thebhive family adventures

Growing up I remember my dad ALWAYS being involved in our community and grew up volunteering and participating in a lot of different events and happenings. Fast forward to now having my own team of little worker minions and I am excited to pass on that “volunteer” bug. The kids, for the most part, understand that they are truly lucky and living a life that SO many aren’t able to. Both Johnny and I don’t want them to have that…

Farm Field Trip with Johnny & Jacob

In thebhive family adventures

This spending time with my kids has been such a rarity with my previous lifestyle within the military and now that I am in a transitional period of employment and life decisions, I’ve decided to slow the role and enjoy time with them. Jacob and I went to the farm and I made sure he knew that I was there to laugh with him, stimulate thought through educational and fun points I found throughout the day, and remind him that…
