I couldn’t let the day end without a shout out to the sweetest baby in the whole wide world!

Ryan, words will never be able to adequately express how much I love you.


Days Interrupted

a strange fever/slight illness/kind of a stomach flu is passing though our home. I have not had it, but everyone else has.  It’s latest victim is Megan…

She is missing a play date this morning and the sad look on her face about killed me.  Hence, I let her have the iPad because, tears.

Summer so far has been everything I have wanted it to be.  Lazy mornings, days at the pool, Kings Island, and later bed times.  It has been glorious.

We are pool people.  It is our happy place and has been the thing I loved most about summer since I was a kid.  I am planning on doing some swim lessons soon because everyone could use it. Megan is advanced enough this year to go off the diving board, down the slides, and climb the rock wall. She is an official big girl. Tyler is so much more comfortable in the pool then he was last summer. And Ryan is just a joy all the time.

I do love summer.

Oh, and this happened… 


We Made It

I’m on vacation!!!!!!!!!

Back in September I thought this day was so far off and in a blink here we are!  Words cannot begin to express how happy I am to be off for a few months.  I love my job and teaching is my calling in life…but, BUT, I love summer vacation.

I am ready for slow mornings, gym time, fun time, and just a whole lot of spending time with my family and friends.

There is so much good stuff to be happy with!  Ryan is 11 months old (my goodness this year flew by), Megan starts kindergarten in the fall, and Tyler is a crazy maniac.  Life is so so good!
