Surfing Sunday 04.29

Last night, we had a fun sleepover at our house. Liam was our special guest, and the kids were beside themselves with excitement that he was going to be here for an entire day and night. Having the little dude has been so much fun, and it has also reminded me that I am a…

The Scientific Method

I posted a picture of Annabel’s science project on Instagram and a few people asked if she could explain what it was. And since I seem to be incapable of completing a blog post lately (I have so many that I’ve started…working full-time is hard on my brain), I thought I’d let her take this…

The last six weeks have really been a blur. April is always so crappy. The grief this month brings always takes an emotional and physical toll. And life doesn’t stop just because I want it to. My kids had softball, baseball, the science fair, chorus performances, dental and eye exams, birthday parties, playdates, etc, and…

Spring break has started around these parts, so the kids will be home from school all this week. Yay. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m happy about a week of no alarms or homework or drama over what to wear. And I love spending time with my kids, of course! But I am also…

Island Dreaming

Okay, last day of trip posts, I promise! On our second day on the cruise, the ship’s port of call was in Nassau, Bahamas. We didn’t end up getting off the ship for a couple reasons. The first was that I spent a large portion of the day in conference sessions. The second is that…
