The Countdown to Christmas

The Countdown to Christmas

All right, the guests are set to arrive in one hour.  I think I’m ready.  Not as ready as I would like to be but it will have to do.  There is nothing really cool I saw on Pinterest as a center piece, no new recipes, no papre-bagged candles lining the driveway…the bathrooms are clean and there will be green bean casserole, ...

On the Stage

Last Friday was the 4th grade Family Breakfast where all the fourth graders come in before school with their families, have breakfast and put on a short concert.  It is always super cute, they do it for every grade, and even though this was the sixteenth family breakfast I’ve been to (one for each kid, each year for the last ...

Dalmatians at Thanksgiving?

The other night we are all sitting around the dinner table and Cassie gets up, all of a sudden and disappears.  She comes back in a few minutes dressed in her Halloween costume, the dalmatian.  She goes about eating her dinner as if nothing happened. The upside is we have definitely gotten our moneys worth out of Cassie’s costume.  The downside, ... Read More »

Top 5 Signs Your Child Might NOT be Ready to Use Scissors Unsupervised

  I know, I know, you’re thinking what on earth were you doing while your kids ran around the house in a crazy cutting frenzy?  Well, these are cumulative findings that have been discovered over the course of time, however I am baffled that at my kids’ ages these still occur.  I don’t get it.  But maybe it’s like the urge ...

Household Shutdown

Hey what a great idea!  I heard a certain government can’t agree on how to spend/make money or something like that so they just shut down.  What if I tried that?  I’m not getting lunch boxes back so I quit making lunches, laundry baskets can’t make the arduous trip from room to washer on laundry day, smelly clothes for the week ...

Progress Report on Color Week

Last week (and this week as well apparently) is color week at Kindergarten.  We started the week out with a bang with both girls refusing to wear red.  Orange day went much better with some creative persuasion.  I got both girls to wear orange (except for the part that a kindergartener out negotiated me and although she agreed to wear orange ...

One More Week

The count down is on.  One more week of summer.  This past weekend was really nice.  I’m all ready for back to school (stuff bought, papers signed, bus stops scouted out) so I’m hoping to just enjoy this last week of summer.  We’ll be going up to the cabin for part of it (so the 95 degree weather is great ...

Disney “CARS 3” ?

This is just a suggestion to Disney for the theme for the next CARS movie: (Cassie, Callie and Lexi found frogs in the backyard and entertained them for the afternoon.) -Cindy Read More »

Back from Vacation

Last week we farmed out the kids!  We had three days to ourselves up at the cabin and it was so nice not to be needed/interrupted.  Josh, Johnny and Lexi went to summer camp, and the girls and Joey went to my parent’s. The couple that sat behind us at the restaurant (that’s a place where they make the food for you ... Read More »

“Hey, Throw This at My Head!”

I was in my lab the other day (OK it was the beach) and I was informally studying the behaviors of pre-adolescent boys (it was hard to miss the large group of unsupervised boys that were fine except during the safety break).  I was trying to figure out how just a few months ago I sat in awe as a group ...
