This week (on a seriously perfect day), I packed up the kids and a picnic lunch to visit Fawn-Doe-Rosa. This may have been one of our nicest days all summer…There was essentially no whining, fighting, major injuries, hunger, or complaining. I kind of didn’t know what was happening. The kids and myself had a fantastic… Continue reading Fawn-Doe-Rosa
Hey everyone! Just thought I’d take a break from procrastinating buying back-to-school supplies to whip up a quick monthly recap of July. Here’s what we did! (Besides take funny photos with the leaf blower, thanks Joe.) The weekend before the 4th of July we had a great time at my in-laws cabin. Ares found a… Continue reading July 2019
So today ended up being awfully sweet. Joe and I have been trying to plan once-a-month “dates” with the girls. Last month he went on an outing with each of the girls (both of them chose Chuck E. Cheese.) This time Cece and I got to go out for a few hours just the two… Continue reading Mother Daughter Date!
We just returned from a four-day trip to my in-laws’ cabin. The last time we were able to visit was a year ago and it felt great to finally return. This was a quieter visit than usual, as we were there from Mon-Thurs and only saw about 1/4 of the kids’ cousins while we were… Continue reading Cabin Life 2019
I feel like summer has barely begun, but somehow, we are already one-third of the way through it. And the days are on their way to being darker and shorter again… eek. That’s not very glass-half-full of me to say, but I think it puts into perspective how brief and beautiful this time of year… Continue reading June 2019
These boo boos just had their last day of school yesterday! Second grade and 4K are officially wrapped up. Heavy backpacks came home with old supplies. forgotten tupperwares, tattered binders and loads of papers. Teacher gifts have all been sent and I’ve got all my lists of things to get done/enjoy this summer. (The first… Continue reading Last Day of School 2019
Hey everyone! Happy Memorial Day weekend! It’s pretty thrilling to be on the brink of summertime, isn’t it? I’ve been a busy bee, but I definitely wanted to take a moment and gather up all things spring from the past two months and do a little life update à la iPhone photos. So here are… Continue reading April & May 2019
On April 30th, Ms. Cecelia Ray Gaetz turned eight! It was over a week ago, but I am currently still processing this milestone. What’s she like at eight-years-old? She can be frequently found zooming around our neighborhood on her rollerblades, snuggling with our dog Princess Zuzu, reading Dog Man and Junie B. Jones books under… Continue reading Happy 8th Birthday, Cece!
Hello, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend, especially with the sunshine! We started out our weekend with our neighborhood’s egg hunt on Saturday morning. For the past two Easters that we’ve lived in Hudson, the Easter activities got moved to people’s garages because of crummy weather. It was great to turn our… Continue reading Easterly Events 2019
It sure feels good to see the mountains of snowbanks finally melted and being on the verge of opening our windows and wearing flip-flops again. Spring, you rascal, you never arrive a moment too soon! Before I quickly end up six months behind in posting, I’d like to give a recap of the past two… Continue reading February & March 2019
