The Simple Things

A couple of weeks ago my mom came down to visit and brought me beautiful purple mums.  I put them right outside my window on the deck so I can see it from the kitchen.  The girls have been in charge of taking care of it and they have taken on their responsibility with gusto!  They check on it every morning, they ...

Color Week at Kindergarten

When our first son went through Kindergarten I loved things like color week at school.  You know, where the kids are supposed to wear something Red on Monday, Orange on Tuesday…etc.  I think I even went out and bought Joey a yellow shirt because we didn’t own anything yellow.  Now I’m learning that color week is really a set-up to ...

Usually when someone asks about the ... Read More »

Here on Broadway

Johnny finished up his theatre camps this week and had two performances. The first was “Our Gang Follies of 1938” an origianl musical based on the Little Rascals. He wasn’t Alfalfa, (the kid who played Alfalfa was really good) but he did an awesome job as a part of a three-man trio. So these kids (all 5th graders) met for seven days, ... Read More »

Fun on the Sidelines

So we come out of Sports Authority and I’m talking with Joey (who just bought new soccer cleats with his OWN money because he has a job – Soccer Ref). I look behind me for the trailing Cassie and Callie and they are lagging behind in the parking lot. I turn and open the van door and then see the two ... Read More »
