Thankful, Part II

I really wanted to post about my weekend in Auburn, the Iron Bowl, seeing old friends, and Georgia surprisingly beating Tech. But I have had too much to do today to do the weekend justice. Instead, i will just give Thanksgiving picture love. . . . Cousins Malex Dash Tiller Princess Visiting Puppy (Yes, she came up with that name… Read more →

Time Warp

Things are so different now than they were when I was a kid, but then i am always surprised that some things stay the same. Rollie’s class went on a field trip to a farm. They did a hayride, and made corn husk dolls, and Rollie got off the bus wearing an Indian feather headband, and carrying a pumpkin. (Or… Read more →

In the Spirit of the World Series

I saw my own high stakes baseball game yesterday. The River Cats took on the Thunder, I think. River Cats are a rust red color. Rollie is #9.

The kids take turns… Read more →

Game Day, or “How I Became That Mother.”

My little man is getting so big. He learned to ride a bike without training wheels, he has loose teeth ready to fall out, and Sunday, he had his first baseball game. I have turned into a Soccer mom, chauffeuring kids to school, and bus stop, and baseball practice, soccer practice, and ballet. I have somehow become a person who… Read more →

Nicest Thing Anyone’s Said to Me in Ages . . .

Tiller just said to me, “Mama, you sure do make great paper airplanes.” I just love the low-tech paper airplanes. You fold a couple for each kid (making sure to reinforce with some Scotch tape, or else you will spend all afternoon refolding them) and then send them off to decorate them with crayons and markers. Then it’s off to… Read more →
