Surfing Sunday 09.15

Yesterday the kids and I made the first of what I’m sure will be MANY trips to the local Halloween store. Annie and James still love being scared by all the creepy displays (I wasn’t blown away by the offerings this year, but there were still a few good ones). James seems pretty set on…

On Monday I developed a very sudden, very severe case of pink eye. My kids were at school for three days and *I* am the one who got pink eye. THANKS. It was really gross. First my eye turned bright red, then my cornea started swelling. If eye things gross you out, DO NOT GOOGLE…

Oh my goodness, these last two weeks were nuuuuuuts. Our trip home from New York City was delayed because James got sick and wasn’t allowed to fly (he was having some breathing issues, the doctors suspect he has asthma so we are now getting that investigated). When we finally got home we had to quickly…

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.

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…

We just returned from a relaxing week away with my parents, cousin, and her family. We rented a lovely house in Scottsdale, AZ, and spent the week swimming, eating, and doing as little as possible. The kids had a BLAST. James and Liam were inseparable, and Annie was in heaven having 24-hour access to baby…

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…
