Will woke up this morning and immediately started making Origami. He is super crafty like that….especially when grounded from electronics. Funny how that works. I asked asked him if he wanted to make a video to show others how to do his current favorite project and he was all about it! I think he didContinue reading “Crafting with Will: Origami Hat/Boat/Snapper”
Will started playing basketball. He’s having a blast. He’s got a great coach and assistant coach and I think he enjoys playing with his teammates even though none of them go to his school. We signed up through the YMCA and I have to say that I’m been pretty impressed with the organization and howContinue reading “Photo Friday: Willy P, Basketball Star”
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”
We got Anna her first American Doll for her birthday. She loves it. Garen got this photo of us “doing hair.” I love it. So real. So special. Here’s another great one that Garen took. Happy Photo Friday!
I have excellent babysitters/nannies that help us out. And, with four kids and both of us traveling for work, boy, do we need it?!?

I had been watching Facebook ads for Stride Rite made2play® Phibian Sneaker Sandal for a while but, being the semi-tightwad that I am, I wasn’tContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Stride Rite made2play® Phibian Sneaker Sandal”
In the words of my Grammy, “I don’t want to sound like I’m airing my dirty laundry,” but we’ve been having some behavior issues around here and problems not minding the first time, etc., etc., etc…. And a while back I saw a few Pinterest posts that had some ideas for grounding, including a “Congratulations,Continue reading “Solution Sunday: You’re Grounded Chore Chart”
A few weeks ago Anna and I enjoyed a day just one on one. We got our nails and toenails done- both in red. Then, after her beauty sleep, I took her to get her hair done. I felt like the coolest Mom ever (even though I know lots of other moms do this onContinue reading “Sweet Saturday: Daughter Day”
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”
