Six years ago today (thank you, Facebook), was this day: ...your first day of kindergarten. You had no idea that this cheery woman with her arms around you would become one of your best loved people. Would become a solid part of the village that's shaping you. Today, on this... Continue reading

Giggling. Grimacing. A little gossiping. ......grueling. It's just grueling. Homework. After a long day for everyone. Fitting in extracurriculars makes it even longer. I get it. I'm a teacher for pete's sake. But still, it's grueling. Today was a good homework day. Continue reading

As in, BASKETball-er. When Little Sister asked to go to Lady Gales basketball camp last summer, we were very surprised. We've never really mentioned or suggested basketball. Neither girl seemed to have a natural affinity for it and Little Sister is not very.......blessed in the height department yet. But she... Continue reading

This is Little Sister's first strep throat. I was pretty sure she had it when she woke me in the middle of the night crying that her throat hurt.......and then woke up crying that her throat hurt......and had not other symptoms, and wasn't herself all day. She must have heard... Continue reading

The problem is, she's like me in so many ways. Good ways. The problem is also that, she's like me in so many ways. Not so good ways. We butt heads. We disagree. We both like to be right. We laugh hysterically at each other. We pretend. We snuggle- a... Continue reading

This is Scarlett. She is soft, and fluffy, and cuddly. She also likes to attack Buckeye, attack ponytails, and attack any other moving objects. :-) I, for one, never ever thought I would want/have/enjoy cuddling/be willing to pay for/be willing to spend money on a cat. But she's pretty cute.... Continue reading

Grandma came to visit today. We shot bows and arrows, went out for lunch, did some shopping, then she worked with the girls on some combination math games/magic tricks. I spent that time learning some new photoshop tricks and researching Disney cruises. What did Daddy do? This. Continue reading

Dear Big Sister and Little Sister, I've gotten away from this blog for a while. I've been capturing our memories in lives (as much as I can as its speeding by....) in photos, videos, things you've both written, and memories in my heart and mind that I didn't feel compelled... Continue reading

Oh the visions. The visions I had today of high school graduation, college graduation.......of holding you in my arms the night you were born........ It's funny how something as simple/huge/pride-inducing/adorable as kindergarten graduation can mark the passage of time. As you marched into that gymnasium while Pomp and Circumstance was...

Oh Juicy. Today, you were part of a team that won a tournament. A smallish tournament, but a tough one. We are so blessed that Daddy gets to be your coach, and that you have an awesome group of girls and parents on your team. Everyone worked together today, and... Continue reading

I always think of this poem by A.A. Milne when someone turns six. She waited and waited and waited for this day. She spent time thinking about how she wanted her party to go, where she wanted to go to dinner, and what she wanted for her birthday. She wanted... Continue reading

She is above all, sweet and funny. She has always been funny. She knows that she's funny. She's the good kind of funny, where she does silly with a straight face, and waits for you to laugh first. :-) She's kind hearted, and tender. She is heartbroken when she thinks... Continue reading

Yes, they're both silly. But this one was born with the gift of cheerfulness, giggles, and downright perfect slapstick timing. We were treated to this short performance tonight. I think she cracked herself up as much as she cracked us up....... Continue reading
