Family Football Knock Knock Joke

Good times throwing the football and listening to music with the family this evening. Todd and Tiller were coming up with creative things to do before she completed her routes. (Nerds.) Jumping jacks, dances, knock knock jokes. This was the funniest. Little traitor. Also, does my voice really sound like that? Rated PG for mild […]

Man Vs. Nature

I am finding the whole Ebola issue, and the government, political, and public response to it, fascinating. I am not really that concerned, but I do agree with others who are losing some confidence in the government and the CDC’s responses to this. I realize how many people i live near and who are friends […]

The Bear Went Over the Mountain

It has all come full circle. I have become my parents.   Tonight we watched Forrest Gump with the kids. I do not recommend this movie for 8 and 11-year-olds.

In Her Hand

My baby is 8. This cannot be. Also, i just ate the rest of that cake with coffee for 2nd breakfast. A pitfall of working from home.

I’m no longer one of those moms with babies. Or toddlers. I’ll never have a preschooler or a kindergartner again. It’s sad, but so so sweet, too.

I See the Future

Rollie. 4th Grade. Wow.

No matter how many times I look at this, it fails to become less funny. And this is a little freaky. . . Afraid this is just a taste of the awkward middle school years. Uh, yeah. . . We’ll be doing a retake.
