A Day in the Life…

Steamboat in March!

| March 31, 2014

We took an extended weekend to Steamboat with Jon’s family!  And it was nice!  Good time to relax, not worry about school or schedules…  It’s nice to just be a family hanging out!  And we did some fun stuff too!  We went to a tubing hill in town, ice skating and plenty of swimming in […]

A Day in the Life…

| January 26, 2014

A day in pictures.  Friday. Colds infecting the household.  Tissues piling up.  Kangaroo baby. Last day of school for the week, lending us to the kitchen table, soaking up {light}, and searching for creativity in the mundane.  Spelling lists on windows and crafting scraps litter the floor. No free hands, let alone time for clean-up. […]

Turkey at The Farm

| December 15, 2013

The Grammy’s have a farm!  This was the 2nd time we’ve been there.  Sadly, we did not get our Thanksgiving turkey from the farm… maybe next year! We joined Aunt Pam, Uncle Dennis, “Bobbert,” the neighbor, Mary, the Grammy’s and far too many dogs! Everything was delicious!  I would have eaten much more my fair […]

The Little Man post.

| November 26, 2013

This little boy just hit {8 months}!  Oh.my.word. How time flies. I can’t say this road with three littles is easy.  No, I can’t say that at all.  It’s hard.  But I wouldn’t trade it for anything.  I know these will be the sweetest years and I try to remember that through my day…  I’ve […]

The Cardboard Box…

| August 30, 2013

We got a new lawn mower… Nothing is more fun… Than a cardboard box… and a good friend!                    Pretty much love her face… Sometimes as a mom, you just have to go with it…

First Day of School!

| August 30, 2013

On Monday we started our school for the year! Day one was, well, day one.  I forget that routine has to be learned…  :)  Soon, though, it will be smoother than this!  Day two was much better. Our geography (Expedition Earth) for the week is going over continents, oceans, and imaginary lines.  Our project for […]

My First Cereal

| August 17, 2013

We didn’t see any smiles… only grunts and whining for more!  :) I think he loved eating something… and he did great too! Enjoying sitting in his high chair.  

The World is Getting Bigger!

| August 16, 2013

This little boy is 4.5 months and discovering more every day! He’s getting those fun little grabby hands!  Watch out or he’s got ahold of most things in a moment’s time!  He thinks it’s great.  And mom’s hair…oh yes, loving grabbing hair. He’s put Mara to tears by grabbing hers – which in turn turned […]

Grabby Hands

| August 14, 2013

Yes, I want your cookie…  Or anything else that you have…    

A New Addition

| August 14, 2013

Thanks to a friend lacking some room, we are borrowing (maybe permanently) a piano!  B has loved practicing on it and even usually wants to play more songs than required when he does practice!  M likes playing it too :)  B’s teacher even said she could tell that he’s been practicing on a real piano… […]

It’s Fun to Be Young

| August 12, 2013

Do you remember all the silly things you did as a kid but it seemed normal at the time?!  :) Like letting your 6 year old neighbor (because 6 is way old!) dress you up like Prince and Princesses with make-up, including your hair… Yes, that is hot pink lip gloss on my son… and […]

Always Outdoors

| August 2, 2013

Summer fun, hanging out outside!  I get tired of holding this little chubby monkey… Here, have a seat, D!  Mara loved it.   Our neighborhood friend, Ayslee!  She has the most beautiful eyes!

Our Homeschool Adventure 2013

| July 31, 2013

Yes, it’s official!  We are continuing this thing called homeschooling! Last year we basically did kindergarten with B and fun stuff with M.  This year’s the real deal for Kindergarten/1st grade!  M will continue pre-k stuff! I know the thought of homeschool offends some for reasons of their own.  This is not my purpose here.  […]

It Grows.

Mmm, fuzzy blonde hair.  Love.
