Family and Friends

Surfing Sunday 8.02

We’ve spent the last week and a half completely reorganizing our house, especially our office, in preparation for the four of us to all be working and schooling from home. 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….

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…

I heard from my family and tons of friends, and felt very loved and special. We all know I LOVE gifts, but getting those…

My kids are now officially on summer break. It was hard to say goodbye to this school year, as weird as it was. I’m really proud of the way my kids adapted to distance learning, but we missed their teachers terribly. I’m excited for the next school year, no matter how it will look, and…

Last weekend, our James turned seven years old. It’s hard to believe he’s already seven, I still see my tiny baby whenever I look at him. Even though our hearts were heavy over George Floyd and countless others, we went all-out to celebrate our best guy’s day. We planned a “paper airplane car parade” and…

I’m feeling incredibly sad and frustrated this Memorial Day Weekend. As I write this, just under one hundred thousand people have died of the coronavirus in the United States, with 345,000 total deaths worldwide. I ache for the families who’ve lost their loved ones, and I am frustrated with the people who are out there…
