10 Things Tuesday

I stopped blogging for awhile.  I didn’t actually mean to.  It just happened.  The reasons…simple I have Maddy for one more year in the afternoons, and I know this.  I am not usually one to blog after the kids go down.  I am a parent who is on duty during day and a fair amount…

First week of school 2013

The first week of school is almost behind us.  Hayden started 4th grade on Monday.  Maddy started Kindergarten on Tuesday. Dropping Hayden off that first day felt different than last year.  Last year it was his first year at a new school and in a new program.  This year I knew he felt comfortable and…

Maddy the Fashionista

Maddy has been picking out her own clothes for a long time now.  This isn’t something I always love, since it means the chance for me to dress her has long been over.  But I love her sense of fashion.  She’s into dresses, in fact I dare say she isn’t going to wear any jeans…

Strawberry Picking time

We went Strawberry picking in the beginning of July.  Maddy was excited to go pick her very favorite thing to eat. Maddy LOVES strawberries. Hayden on the other hand, doesn’t like strawberries at all.  He tries them monthly and doesn’t like them.  So he was less than excited to get up and go pick strawberries…

July: At the lake

July.  The month is almost over.  I have been doing what most moms do during the summer.  Soaking up this time with my kids. In the beginning of July we were visiting family.  Love being at my parent’s lake, it is my happy place.  We swam, we celebrated, we lived in the moments.  And yes…

Dance Recital 2013

Last night was Maddy’s dance recital.  She seemed so little on that stage and yet was such a big girl, to be backstage hanging with her friends waiting for her turns to dance.   She had a blast dancing, and  was so focused on doing her best.  She was beaming at the end of the…

Soaking in the sun: beach wedding style

Today I had hoped to take the kids to the beach, but it is storming out…again.  So inside time is where it is at… for now.   The rain is becoming a bit of a drag around these parts, especially when I look back at these beach pictures from the wedding at the end of…

The ocean for the first time

We are in week two of summer.  Which means that for two weeks now I have said I will make time for this space.  Swim lessons are happening and lots of play dates.  I made a promise to Hayden that play dates would happen this summer.  I told him this past school year that we…

A needed break

I have a quiet house right now.  Maddy decided to put herself down for a nap, and she seems to have really fallen asleep, it is needed.   Tonight will be a night to go watch her big brother so any rest will do her good. This past month has flown by.  We have been…

Little tid bits

   Tildy had her birthday last week, her very first birthday with us.  She was loved on all day.  We now have dogs that are as old as each of our kids, not planned, but funny nonetheless. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………   I got the dogs a new bed  for the kitchen.  Black and white polka dots make…
