CHIRP

A few days ago, just as we were getting out of bed, the smoke alarm started to “CHIRP.” Some of the kids were fighting off sickness and we wanted them to get as much sleep as possible, so I ran downstairs and found a brand new 9 Volt battery….what are the chances? I took a...

Earlier this week, the boys and I had a day out. After finishing a few chores around the house, we went out to upgrade to Madden NFL 22 Xbox One. They really wanted to play with the Chiefs #83, Noah Gray. Let’s Gooooooo! On our way home, we stopped by a new favorite place for...

This morning, I was meeting a friend for coffee. We were having a great conversation and then all of a sudden, I felt something dripping on my hand….and shirt…and pants… Within a split second, it occurred to me….my cup was leaking. I stood up and scanned the room for another cup…I saw the trash, but...

During our most recent cold snap, we had a pipe burst. However, we didn’t find out for several days… After returning from New Orleans, we put everything away and settled back into our house. After a while, it was time for the kids to go to bed, and then we noticed…Isaiah’s top bunk was soaked...

Big Easy

The past few months have been packed full and we have felt stretched a little thin…so, we decided to head south to find some warmer weather and a family adventure in a new city. We got both in the Big Easy! There are plenty of stories to share, but one of my favorites happened while...

This also means there is time for new endeavors… In case you’re wondering the kids aren’t lining up to help with laundry or shoveling, but they are finding...

I love to watch buildings being restored. Shows like Extreme Home Makeover are incredibly fun and full of anticipation because, in just a short time, there is a well-deserving family who receives a home they could have never otherwise afforded. Although we haven’t been blessed by a Makeover show, in 2015, we moved to our...

Earlier today, Croatia beat Brazil in Penalty Kicks to advance to the final four of the world cup. Leigh-Ann and I were at the airport to come back to Kansas City during the game and we found a TV at a restaurant just down from our gate. The game was a very exciting 0-0 after...

On Tuesday, the US Men’s National Soccer team defeated Iran 1-0. If you didn’t get a chance to watch it, the guys played really well and deserved the win. If they had only tied or lost that match, they would not have advanced into the final tournament of 16. This made the game incredibly tense....

Happy Thanksgiving weekend. I hope the past few days have offered you some time to slow down a bit and reflect on the many blessings we enjoy every day. In the Campbell household, we’ve been eating a lot of food, watching, and playing football (both types) as a family, and then crashing on the couch...
