Surfing Sunday 08.11

We’ve spent the last week at a Spohr family reunion in Massachusetts. It was so much fun to meet distant relatives and learn about the “east coast” Spohrs. Annie and James had an absolute BLAST doing all the fun outdoorsy things that are all around in Cape Cod. They swam in lakes, caught fish, went…

I really don’t know what to say this morning. I woke up yesterday with a heavy heart — the day marked seven years since my wonderful, amazing friend Jackie passed away from a brain tumor. And then the day got worse…unfathomably worse. Mass-shootings — mass-murders — in two major cities, only 13 hours apart. Two…

Both of my kids love American Ninja Warrior Junior, but no one more than James, who is OBSESSED. He literally does exercises every day to “make myself a strong ninja warrior” and has watched as many episodes as we will allow. Mike was invited through BuzzFeed to visit the set of the show and he…

Paul, Ringo, Annie, & James

When Paul McCartney announced his tour late last year, Mike decided this was going to be the year we brought Annie and James. Sir Paul is getting up there in years (he just turned 77), and even though he always ends every concert with “see you next time,” you never know when he might decide…

The All-Star softball season officially came to an end for Annie’s team yesterday. They made it to the State tournament, which was a huge accomplishment. Their two losses were to teams that qualified for the regional tournament and they were both close games. If you have to lose, you want it to be to teams…

This Is Spohrty

Hey so, I turned 40 on Thursday. The big four-oh. I’ve been treated to an AMAZING birthday week by my family and friends, and it’s made me feel so special. On Monday, my oldest friend, Tara, threw me a surprise party at her house. I was actually surprised, too!!! I had a great time celebrating…

Surfing Sunday 06.16

So much has happened for the Spohrs in the last two weeks. The kids finished school (so long, kindergarten and third grade), we traveled to Irvine for a softball tournament, and we’re currently halfway through another softball tournament. But even though it’s the summer of softball, we haven’t forgotten that today is Father’s Day (okay,…
