Sometimes I forget I have a blog.  I’ll randomly think during the day, oh I need to post this or that.  Then I forget and it seems pointless the next time I remember.  Generally, it’s something really sweet Sunshine did or something crazy Snax did.  And I should post that stuff so I remember how […]

There is something wonderful about seeing the world through their eyes. Even something as simple as decorations. I got out the Halloween decorations the other night, and the kids were so excited.  Baby Hulk was on me all night since I had promised to take them down as soon as I finished mopping the floor. […]

Today was Baby Hulk’s first field trip of the school year. And he stayed home with me.   Yes, it makes me happier than anyone can probably realize that he wanted to be with us rather than go on a field trip. After lunch today, I caught him looking at  me through the rear view […]

Outside of raising my kids and running this home, there are few jobs I could actually see myself doing. My life goal, the job I am positive I would be amazing at is private detective.  I’m too nosy for my own good, see through lies easily and love figuring out a puzzle.  I used to […]

Our favorite poet, Douglass Florian, has a book for each season.  It is taking all my strength not to buy each book for our nature collection, which is mighty small, but proving to be a huge interest in this house. One of our favorite poems is titled: What I Love About Summer.  It’s a great […]

Goose has been participating in WITS, Writers in the School, all year.  They ended the year with a party in which the teacher passed out a book with their own work inside.  It was pretty inspired to hear each child read a work they created to the class. Each student selected four pieces for the […]

I received a package and note from a friend I’ve known for years.  It was a total surprise and really nice after driving home most of Saturday. The last line of her note stated: I hope you always have reasons to be happy. It was a random comment, but one that made me stop and […]
