Well, I haven’t really forgotten. Let’s just say blogging is that item at the top of my to do list that I haven’t gotten to recently. Since I last blogged BACK IN APRIL, our daughter finished her first year of kindergarten: We embarked on an epic road trip to New Mexico so our daughter could […]
Happy birthday to our sweet, happy boy! This past year flew by so fast. Wasn’t he just born? At one year old he’s an adventurous climber and explorer, yet coordinated and steady on his feet… Loves music and dancing… Crazy about carrying, dropping, and throwing (!!!) balls… He loves playing outside and exploring the natural […]
In the past our daughter has insisted her birthday party be about dress-up and princesses and tea parties, which is all well and good, but frankly it’s not really my thing.

As a result I’ve been posting more on Facebook and less here on my site, particularly since we started “officially” homeschooling. That makes me a little sad. I’m going […]
I feel like I can finally take a deep breath: the baby and our Christmas Tree have peacefully coexisted for over two weeks now. I just wasn’t sure how that was going to go down. To make the tree baby safe, we only placed ornaments on the top two thirds. True, our tree does look […]
Hello, mid-November. Where did you come from?! The last few weeks has been a whirlwind of visits with family and friends. David’s mom came to help us while he had knee surgery (which went well and he headed back to his daily yoga practice two weeks post-op). Each visit was wonderful, although I admit that […]
