Give Them A Break

  Sometimes our kids need a break from their schedule.  B is involved in Tae Kwon Do and baseball, plus he has therapies and counseling throughout the week. This makes our days after school quite busy, often resulting in us not getting home until 7:30 each night.  Some people have told me he's too busy… Continue reading Give Them A Break

New Year Activity

I've never really been too much of a nostalgic person. Things are what they are, life moves as it moves, and there's little use in dwelling. I'm also not someone who holds on to objects.

When we spent our first Christmas together as a family of 3, Michael and I talked about what kind of traditions we wanted to start with Blake.

Ear, Nose, & Throat Appointment

I've been meaning to update for weeks.  I have an entry sitting in my "drafts" at the moment that I keep coming to and adding to, but haven't finalized.  Things have been hectic, and I'm ashamed to say I don't think I've even updated since we moved! Seems like forever ago. There's much to update on,… Continue reading Ear, Nose, & Throat Appointment
