I love Mondays. I've been up since 4 this morning, scribbling lists and getting things done. (I'll be sound asleep by 8:30 tonight) I love fresh starts. My friend Linda (on the right) has a big fresh start this morning... Continue reading

After a long couple months of Greg working a lot of overtime, including Saturdays, he's been taking a few to himself again. I ran Mark to soccer yesterday, where we got through the first half before the thunder started, and... Continue reading

The boys have decided that they are going to see how late in the year they can get themselves into the lake. They head the beach to themselves. Again. The funny part about yesterday's dip was that it was Mark... Continue reading

When I make it to two football games in one week, it definitely feels like fall. On Thursday, the eighth graders performed the JV halftime show with the high school band. This had Mark, my mom and myself spending Thursday... Continue reading

Happy Monday! Sunday was a lot of everyone heading in different directions. All afternoon. At about 6:30, I talked Mark into going to Kensington with me. It was a beautiful evening for a walk in one of our favorite places.... Continue reading

I love a day that has at least one laughable moment. Today held two. The first one came in fifth grade when the teacher was reading another chapter from Wonder. I've read the book, and am enjoying witnessing the class... Continue reading

This weekend was gorgeous, and we filled it with outdoor activities. As the days get shorter, ballooning starts earlier. I met the crew at 5:15 Friday evening. The weather hasn't been real cooperative this year, so it was fun to... Continue reading

Last Sunday, the boys went with Greg to the Parshallville Cider Mill (I had gone to my mom's so that I could walk home from that apartment one more time before she moves). It was crazy hot last Sunday. This... Continue reading

Two weeks of school complete already! HUZZAH! We've been going at a pretty accelerated pace over here this year. Several times I tried to sit down and blog before things got too far behind (again), but once I go back... Continue reading

Last Friday the 17th, we headed to Gatlinburg for five nights. We find ourselves redoing some of the vacations that we've done before when the bigs were little. The end of August (and spring break) seem to work out best... Continue reading

I had intended to have this blog post be a summary of the week, Saturday to Saturday, in order to include our quick trip to Boyne. But. It turns out I have quite a few pictures from this year's Colonial... Continue reading

From yesterday's rainy afternoon: Brian: I'm bored, what can we do? Me: Seriously - did you ask this at Auntie Renee's too? Brian: No, but there was always something to do. Mark, excited: Wanna play Monopoly? Brian: NooOOOooo. -------- Several... Continue reading

On Saturday morning, I headed north with my mom, Wendy and Mark to go round up Brian. I like to stop and stretch my legs when I drive. On this day, I chose Castle Rock. It had been a few... Continue reading

Friday morning had us up and out for breakfast in Glen Arbor. I like Glen Arbor. I tend to be an early riser, and had already eaten my morning oatmeal - but decided to try the hashbrown casserole. I have... Continue reading

As mentioned in the previous post, we took our time packing up and hiking out of Nordhouse Dunes. It was so peaceful, quiet and relaxing there. (I've since read that they got hit with most of the weekend's forecasted rain... Continue reading

The original plan was to head out with all the ladies on Thursday and go straight up to the Glen Arbor/Empire area. With the forecast for the weekend looking pretty dire, MaryKay and I decided to head out a day... Continue reading

A week ago Saturday, I got a phone call from Wendy. She started out by saying she was okay - But. She was shook and asked me to come. Greg was in St. Ignace. What happened was that she reached... Continue reading

We had a small 15 minute window of time today where all four kids were awake, dressed and in the same house. I hosted a quick 'come as you are' moment in the backyard in order to get the photo... Continue reading

Those of you who know me well, know that I normally go into Monday morning with my heels clicking and my energy level on high. This doesn't hold true, however, for the Monday following Balloonfest. Ever. I entered today much... Continue reading

And just like that - the first week of summer flew right by. I went into summer feeling like it was going to be a bit of a relaxed and well-balanced summer. I still feel like it's well-balanced, but relaxed?... Continue reading
