When asked what he wanted to do for his birthday this year, Jackson was set on having a pool party. BJ and I looked at each other thinking well this could be tough. The weather at the end of September is either nice or cold. I was so thankful that... Continue reading

It was September of 2009. I was a 27 year old mother of an almost 1 year old baby Jackson. We were on our third daycare in his short life. And this last one we were at was miserable. So miserable that everyday after drop off, I cried on my... Continue reading

So since Kindergarten starts later at Cascade, we had another first day at our house the Tuesday after Labor Day weekend. This time, it was her turn. The day she had been anxiously awaiting for and the day I was so secretly dreading. But she was way more ready for... Continue reading

Whew! We've successfully made it through the first two weeks of school for Jacks. He started the Wednesday before Labor Day Weekend which is great because it is a nice short week before a three day weekend. It was a little weird because he and his sister didn't start on... Continue reading

This week, Audri started soccer. After years of waiting and sitting patiently on the sidelines watching her brother play sports, it is finally her turn. She was super excited and loves it. Her coach is a Dad of another player and he is great with the girls. In fact, Audri's... Continue reading

A couple of weekends ago, we took the kids to the west side for BJ's state softball. It was our first and probably only family road trip of the summer. There has been so much to do here at home that the summer has flown by and now we are... Continue reading

This year was the last year of pitching machine baseball. And what a great year we had. Jackson had a great little team that pretty much dominated the league. It was so fun for him to play with so many of his friends. And I think BJ had just as... Continue reading

A couple of months ago, Audri had asked for help brushing her teeth because she had a strawberry seed stuck in her teeth. At that time I noticed she had an adult tooth budding her gums right behind her front bottom tooth. I really wasn't ready for it. Could she... Continue reading

The day after school got out, Audri had her dance recital. I always wonder why on earth they schedule the recital the day after school gets out because it makes that week a madhouse, but in the end when I see her doing her thing up on stage, it makes... Continue reading

This year, the kids had different "last days". Usually Deanne does an end of the year picnic on the last day of school but this year, Gary had surgery that week so she was closed. So Audri's last day of preschool was the Friday before the last week of school.... Continue reading

The end of the school year always creeps up on me and I find myself just trying to keep my head above water. It's always a battle to keep up at work and attend all the end of the year activities. And to top it off, this year I got... Continue reading

So proud of this kid. He brought home the Character Trait of the month for the month of May. And the Character Trait was perseverance and that is what makes me so proud. This kid tries so hard at school and it brought me to tears to see his teacher... Continue reading

A month ago today, our Audri Jayne turned five. FIVE! I no longer have a toddler running around the house but rather a little girl. This past year, she has grown and changed so much. From her looks to her attitude (yikes), I feel like every time I turn around... Continue reading

For months before her birthday, Audri asked if she could have a birthday party at the gymnastics place. She was SO looking forward to her big day and being able to have a birthday party. So I booked the date and I'm so thankful it did not disappoint! She had... Continue reading

Whew, it's been a while! Life has been exceptionally busy for us lately. But it is time for a major update and a iPhone photo dump. Here goes... First up… we moved. And it’s pretty much been madness ever since. Like it wasn’t madness before when we were building. Who... Continue reading

This winter, Jackson was lucky enough to do the Eastmont Saturday morning basketball camp and the Little Hoops League through Wenatchee Valley College. We were a late addition to the Little Hoops League and I'm so glad he was able to participate. The kids were broken into teams and coached... Continue reading

Confession… this is definitely one area I’ve been horrible about sharing. Our lives have pretty much been turned upside down since mid-June and to be honest, I’ve struggled with just getting through life let alone keeping up in other areas of my life that are non-essential. Like sitting down to... Continue reading

We've had quite a winter this year. Super cold with lots of snow at times. Last weekend, we tried out sledding at our new house and it ended up being awesome. The kids had a blast and we can't wait to do it again! Continue reading

Another holiday season has come and gone. And while this one was far from traditional for us, we still had such a great time with family and the kiddos. It was the most memorable Christmas Eve for us as for the first time ever, we got to witness a marriage... Continue reading

BJ's cousin Erica puts on a pretty amazing fundraiser every December. It is called the Brave Warrior Project and all the proceeds go to families who have kids battling cancer in our valley. It is pictures with Santa by donation. I'm so glad we made it this year. She did... Continue reading

We made our annual trek to see Christmas lights around our valley last weekend. And since we went on a Saturday, one of the houses even had a Santa. Jacks was all about it... sis, not so much. I had to sit with her. This year, we made it to... Continue reading
