Surfing Sunday 9.27

The kids had picture day at school at couple weeks ago. It was very different than usual (obviously). No class picture, just individual photos of each kid. Annie and James had an assigned time to show up, and the photographers were set up outside the school in tents. They wore masks until it was time…

It’s scary times with the horrible fires raging on the west coast right now. We personally are safe from danger and hopefully, that will continue. The amount of smoke is absolutely astounding. The air is tinted with smoke, turning the sun a strange red color. We’ve been staying inside as much as possible to avoid…

Annie and James started school a week and a half ago, fifth grade for Annie and second grade for James. It’s hard to believe that this is their last year at the same school until Annie is a SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL and James is a Freshman. The beginning of the year has been good,…

The kids’ school will be starting online in a couple weeks, and Mike will be working from home for the foreseeable future. We did a…

I took the kids to the beach last week to get a change of scenery. They spent HOURS in the water – James literally only left the water because I forced him to eat. The ocean is like 62-63 degrees (I think that’s like 17ish in Celcius), too cold for my wimpy self without a…

During quarantine, we’ve seen family, but always outside and always at least six feet apart. This weekend, after months of waving from a distance, we let my kids and my cousin Leah’s kids get close enough to each other to play and hug. Annie and Harper wasted no time. These two are so cute together….

Surfing Sunday 7.04

I hope everyone had a happy and safe July 4th, wherever you are. The four of us had ourselves a nice little day at home where we barbequed, played in a sprinkler, and set off noisemakers in our yard. Not that we really needed to set off noisemakers – so many people in our city…
