I’m sitting here at the roller rink watching my kids fly by with smiles on their faces. It’s our last skate day of the summer. I’m smiling thinking of today only. Not tomorrow or next week when they go back to school. Just today. And when I think of just this second, I am happy. […]
It’s been a while. A long while. But it’s been good. The last four months have been nonstop living and loving. We’ve seen family and friends and it’s been better than I could have imagined. For my own records, I’ve attempted to jot it all down here. This post is more than likely way too […]
Someone told me I had been a lazy blogger this summer. It’s true. I can’t even manage to post pictures on a regular basis. I’ve been in a funk not feeling like it was a real summer, upset because we didn’t take a vacation with the kids and now the inevitable…school. And I feel like […]

Well, I just got the punch to my stomach. The whole I love my birthday…well, that’s done. Baby Hulk is off the wait list at Rogers. I completed the paperwork this afternoon with a very heavy heart. I’m not happy. My mind had accepted that he was home, and the year was set. Now it’s […]
School officially ended for my seven year old today. We had a field trip he really wanted to attend. Afterwards we cleaned out his desk, tossed all his papers and came home to relax. I am so happy to have my boy home for the summer. School is way too long in my opinion. I […]
As summer comes to an end, I am grateful. I hold it close to my heart. It passed way too fast. The big kids weren’t even out of school for three months. I have promised to embrace today, the now, to live life without thinking of yesterday or how time passes so quickly. I think […]
