When both Annie and Elisabeth posted inspiring What Worked in 2014 posts, I wanted to write one too. And I just barely managed to do it before February! No, the photos don’t match anything. But hey, I got photos up, Continue reading What worked in 2014
You know those late winter weeks when you soul itches, the kids keep getting stomach flus, but they beg to go to any chance to see their friends and catch more? When you stock up on clementines and make the Continue reading Where did Feb go?
Ben’s two weeks of summer vacation are over. I’m out of printer toner, so I had to just e-mail him his check off lists, he was hoping to put his lab top away since it can be a distraction as Continue reading Ben’s first day this year
