Surfing Sunday 02.16

I hope you all are having a lovely weekend. The kids had Friday off of school and they also have tomorrow (Monday) off so it’s been a long weekend in every sense of the word. Since they didn’t have school on Valentine’s Day, they celebrated with their classes on Thursday. There’s nothing like picking your…

Last week was the 100th day of school, and James’ class celebrated by dressing up like they were 100 years old. I loved it when Annie’s first-grade class did this a few years ago, so I’ve been looking forward to turning James into a little old man for a while. James is an even bigger…

Hi, friends! I’m so touched by the response to my writing more again. I’m looking forward to putting my fingers on the keyboard and seeing where my weird brain takes me. I started blogging in 2002 and as it turns out, I DO have more to say. I also realized it’s been a while since…

Our days since the holiday have been low-key and lovely. We’ve seen movies, played with toys, and tried to clean up the Christmas chaos….

The Southern California weather gods have brought us rain for the next five days. That’s the closest we’ll ever get to a white Christmas, so I’ll take it! Annie and James are doing “snow dances,” but it’s only going to get into the 40s here (that’s like six or seven degrees C) so there’s no…

Last Monday, we celebrated Mike’s birthday and tomorrow we celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary. Our Decembers are always crazy with celebrations, but it’s a good problem to have! I need to finish up all of my Christmas prep this week before the kids are home on winter break. Mike is also taking two weeks off…
