The boys made a Christmas countdown chain over the weekend. 52 loops. It's less than that now. It's a little bit stressing me out. They've already written their Christmas lists, have Alexa playing Christmas music constantly, and are putting a... Continue reading

It was a few weeks already when my friend Deana happened to call the office at school during my shift. "Deana!" I said, "We haven't been hiking since July! We NEED to go on a day hike!" Actually, let me... Continue reading

It would seem that I've missed a week of updating the blog. Huh. Imagine that. SO. In the past TWO weeks - Wendy turned 18. I might be having a bit of a mid-life crisis. I hardly feel like an... 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

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
