Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I'm Lila Evergreen, a 32-year-old mom of seven amazing children! Ranging in ages from 1 to 13. My life might sound like a whirlwind of chaos, but it's a beautiful chaos filled with laughter, learning, and a whole lot of love. Join me on this blog as I share my experiences, insights, and stories about embracing the joys and challenges of motherhood, homeschooling, and life in the picturesque state of Montana.
Finding My Joy in Motherhood: From the moment I held my firstborn in my arms, I knew that being a mom was my true calling. My journey into motherhood has been nothing short of extraordinary, with each child bringing their unique personality and lessons into my life. As my family grew, so did my heart, and I found myself developing a knack for juggling responsibilities, nurturing individuality, and creating a harmonious household.
Seven Blessings, One Heart: People often ask me how I manage with seven children under one roof. The answer is simple: love, patience, and a whole lot of organization. While it's true that our home is never quiet, and messes are an everyday occurrence, it's in the chaos that we find our rhythm. I'll be sharing my tried-and-true tips for keeping the house running smoothly, maintaining a nurturing environment, and making sure that everyone feels heard and loved.
Cooking Up Memories: One of the things that brings me immense joy is cooking for my family. Whether it's experimenting with new recipes or preparing old family favorites, our kitchen is always buzzing with delicious aromas and eager appetites. Join me as I share some of our most cherished recipes, tips for meal planning on a large scale, and stories of how the simple act of sharing a meal can create lasting memories.
Homeschooling Adventures: Homeschooling has become an integral part of our family's life. The freedom to tailor our children's education to their individual needs and interests has been a rewarding experience. I'll be delving into our homeschooling journey, from choosing curriculum to creating engaging lessons that spark curiosity and a love for learning. Whether you're a seasoned homeschooler or just curious about the concept, I hope our experiences will inspire and guide you.
Life in Montana: Nestled in the breathtaking landscapes of Montana, our home provides us with the perfect backdrop for outdoor adventures, exploration, and a deep connection to nature. From hiking through the majestic mountains to stargazing on clear, crisp nights, I'll be sharing our family's love for the great outdoors and how it enriches our lives in countless ways.
Balancing Self-Care: In the midst of caring for a bustling household, it's easy to forget about self-care. However, I've come to realize that taking care of myself is just as essential as caring for my family. I'll be discussing the importance of carving out moments for self-care, whether it's indulging in a good book, pursuing a hobby, or simply finding solace in a quiet moment surrounded by nature's beauty.
