Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!! Today we’re missing Mike, who is spending Father’s Day with his own dad up north while Annie and I do our thing on the softball fields (and James cheers us on). We can’t wait for him to come home so we can shower him with love and…

Schooooooool’s out for summer! It really felt like this year flew by. Of course, I’ve been so insanely busy the last two-and-a-half months, so maybe it just feels that way to me. They changed a lot on the inside this year…okay, on the outside, too. He had a pajama party on the last day. They…

My life is sloooowly calming down. Last week, James finished school, Annie finishes school this week, and my current freelance job ends the week after. Softball still runs until the end of June, but I’m looking forward to not being pulled in a million directions! I’m spread verrrrrry thin right now. I’m excited for that…

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! Mike and the kids woke me up with breakfast in bed (smoked salmon eggs benedict, nice work, Mike!) and gave me presents and lots of love. Today is always a mixed bag of emotions for me and anyone missing a child, a mom, a grandma, or a mother figure. The only…

The regular softball season has ended. I just loved the girls I had on my team this year. They were all so sweet and funny, and they got along with each other SO well. You never know what you’re going to get with a bunch of seven and eight-year-olds, but this group was great. I’m…

Rookie Season

Mike and I waited until last year to let Annie start playing sports. When she was younger, she was the type of kid who, if she couldn’t master something quickly, would become frustrated and stop trying. Waiting until she was 6 to start sports was definitely the right decision for her. I always thought we’d…
