February in photos

The kids and I made a suncatcher.

February has seriously been the longest month ever.           Of course, I’m not including all the kids, because I don’t really put pictures of them here. And this should include pictures of Haley at school and me at work. And maybe a few of me laying around in my pajama’s aching and sick, [Read More...]



Every once in a while when I get a bunch of small posts that aren’t really big enough to be a post of their own, I do a hodge-podge post. So here’s the latest.   On the drive home from dropping people off in the morning.   Ms Drama: Mom do you looove the hair [Read More...]



Ms Action (5)- A few months back Haley and the kids were at the block party while I was at work, later I heard that they had a mini-talent show, and that Ms Action without asking for permission or telling anyone. went up to the microphone and announced that her talent was dancing, and then proceeded to [Read More...]

Back to Blogging (I hope)


When we first got married, we killed two television sets in a row without even trying. Apparently our luck with electronics has continued because this year I have used three different computers.   First my Dell laptop had some issue with the power cord and it fried three cords in a row, and then it got a virus, [Read More...]

Still Here

I have had an unexpected but very welcome influx of visitors in the last few weeks. Haley’s cousin, my sister and then my brother all came up to see us right in a row. All the visits went wonderfully and I have been spending most of my time away from the computer which means I [Read More...]

I’ve been trying to update everything [Read More...]

What the kids have been up to

Taking a break…

Call it a blogging fast, call it a computer fast, but I am going to be gone for a little bit. I’m not sure how long I will need. A day, a week, I don’t know. But when everything on the computer starts to feel angering or depressing, I know it’s time for me to take [Read More...]

Random Blurbs

I have lots of posts in the works, and some that are ready to post next week, including a post on weaning and a first time ever guest post from my Hunnie. I am also hoping to get back to my ongoing Gentle Discipline series. But for now I decided to end a light week [Read More...]

And the Kids keep on Growing

Ms Action is 5 years old now. She loves directing things and has become best friends since moving with the little 5 year old boy next store. They play together almost every day outside. She has also declared herself big enough for showers now, and insists on doing it herself. Recently, she pointed out our [Read More...]
