Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Sean the Leprechaun came to our house last night and brought shoes and candy for Annie and James. I don’t know how much longer Annie is going to believe in all of this stuff, but she was thrilled this morning when she discovered her treats. James immediately put on his new…

James was selected Star of the Week for his kindergarten class. Star of the week gets lots of fun “perks,” but the one the kids love the most is that they get to take home the class stuffed animal, Dex. James has been taking Dex everywhere, and we’ve been taking lots of pictures of the…

The kids’ school gets really into Read Across America week. They had fun activities in the classes, celebrity readers (Jim Cummings, the voice of Winnie the Pooh, read to the kids!), and on Friday, they got to dress as their favorite character from a book.

Getting that girl ready for both almost killed me, but luckily, both went very well. Annie crushed it at the talent show – her act was stand-up comedy! She wrote…

I fully intended on posting last week, and I’d been gathering articles and writing down ideas. Then Annie’s birthday party happened. Twelve girls spent the night at our house…notice I didn’t say, “slept,” because I’m pretty sure most of them didn’t. I know I didn’t! I am WAY. TOO. OLD. to stay up all night….
