They are SO into it this year. We've traditionally been a pretty low-screen-time family. We closely monitor what films / shows the boys watch, and they don't play games on our devices. However, lately I've been letting the boys browse... Continue reading

We had some good photographic direction. But I'll take credit for the clothes. ;) +C

We miss you! I saw a pair of tiny carhart coveralls at goodwill the other day and thought of Lars. Xxoo +C

The big rushing energy these past several months have required of us seems to have drawn back to that in-breath place now. Not calm, necessarily, but definitely more still. I often find that place uncomfortable. Stagnant. Sluggish. Without school or... Continue reading

In a rare and shining moment of with-it-ness, I have placed an order for our holiday well-wishes. Two spanking months in advance. These gems are the outtakes from a quick family session with Sarah, who clearly sees us for exactly... Continue reading

It's been sniffles and cold-aches over here the past couple of days. It's always rough to be sick at the same time as the little ones. Quinn gets this super scary croup, totally different than anything Pan ever had (and... Continue reading

While we were staying with my parents, HGTV was on virtually all the time in the background, and never really caught their interest (unless they were super tired and needed a snuggle)... which is probably okay! :) XXOO +Chelsea

Katri, thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words. I really missed being here, too. We LOVE the Miyazaki films. I've noticed that lately, though, they aren't that interested in watching feature-length shows, but prefer tinier morsels. Which, honestly, is okay by me. Shorter show = less screen time! +Chelsea

...that they do, on occasion, get along beautifully. They've been so hot and cold with each other -- and with us -- lately, these little reminders of how magnificent it can truly be, are truly important. Love (and peace) to... Continue reading

Jenn, That is one that we are looking at, there are so many great options here! A big part of our decision, of course, will be the financial end of things, and I think the schools all fall in a pretty broad range of assistance... I guess we'll see! +Chelsea

Hey! I've been loving your travel adventure photos, maybe someday soon those travels can bring you out west... And you can give me a firsthand schooling in campfire cooking?? XXOO +C

After the heated busyness of the past summer months, I'm finding myself slowing down significantly. I'm finding it a bit harder to get started, to get projects going, to be up and alert and ready in the morning. After flirting... Continue reading

I've found that we've settled, in the short time we've been in our new little home in Portland, more quickly than we ever have in any of the (many, many) places we've lived. Already there is a backyard playhouse, tree... Continue reading

Love to you, pretty lady. I've been tempted by a couple different trivia nights, but there's no way the company (and vast intelligences!) could be nearly as good... XXOO +C

So, here we are, in a tree fort, in our new home in Portland, Oregon. Together. Six months ago, I wouldn't have been able to see this, to imagine it could work this way, feel this way. If you are... Continue reading
