Photo Friday: Boy Scouts Spring Camp Out 2018

Will and Garen joined in the fun for the Boy Scout Spring Camp Out a few weeks before school got out, so I probably should’ve already posted this as a Photo Friday post but I have end of school activities to blame.  If you have kids, you know how those last few weeks are- fieldContinue reading “Photo Friday: Boy Scouts Spring Camp Out 2018”

Photo Friday: Brownies

Our Girl Scout troop advanced from Daisies to Brownies on Tuesday night with a great bridging ceremony. We’ve got such a fun and unique group of girls and awesome leaders! We’re looking forward to another great year as Brownies! Here’s a few photos I got from Tuesday’s fun. Unfortunately Garen had to stay home withContinue reading “Photo Friday: Brownies”

My Dad turns 60

Growing up, and even in the recent past, my mom has told me, “You are just like your Dad….” Man, what a compliment. My Dad is one of my heroes.  It’s no secret that I adore him.  I’m proud of his accomplishments throughout his career, but I’m even more proud of the man he isContinue reading “My Dad turns 60”

Photo Friday: Pinewood Derby Prep 2018

It’s hard to believe that it’s already almost Pinewood Derby time again for Boy Scouts. Last weekend Will and Garen headed down to Hamilton to work with YaYa (my dad) on this year’s model. Dad is the most detailed oriented man I know when it comes to this. It’s such a good example for Will.Continue reading “Photo Friday: Pinewood Derby Prep 2018”

Sweet Sunday: Anna’s Got Cookies

Anna has her cookies and has been selling them all weekend. I’m a little partial but I think she’s the cutest Daisy ever. I mean, really how could you say no to this face?!? We’ve really had such a fun time and got to enjoy a girls night together on Friday night since the boysContinue reading “Sweet Sunday: Anna’s Got Cookies”

What’s Your Favorite Flavor?

Tomorrow morning, I’ll officially be a “cookie mom.”  You know, the crazy ladies dragging their little girls around selling those addicting little round morsels of joy???  For those of you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m speaking of the ever-popular Girl Scout Cookies. That’s right, folks.  Cookie Season officially kicks off tomorrow. And, glutten-for-punishmentContinue reading “What’s Your Favorite Flavor?”

Celebrating Dad

As I started to write this in preparation for posting on Father’s Day, I saw this…. Looking at this screenshot, you might not even know what struck me as important.            Share your story here… As I sat for a minute, pondering, I wondered how I’d never looked at that phraseContinue reading “Celebrating Dad”

Photo Friday: Prepping for Pinewood Derby 

Garen, Will, and Dad (AKA YaYa-yes, we know that is actually grandma in another language but Will called him that as a baby and it stuck) worked hard on Will’s pinewood derby car last Saturday. Garen got some great photos for me to share.  I love that they get the opportunity to spend time inContinue reading “Photo Friday: Prepping for Pinewood Derby “

William Wednesday

I sometimes feel like I don’t post enough about Will, being both the only boy and the oldest child. I want to make it a point to highlight periodically some of the great stuff he’s been doing as well.  He’s in Cub Scouts. It’s crazy having that many little boys in one place but IContinue reading “William Wednesday”
