Who I Am as a Blogger

Who I Am as a Blogger

I hate the word “blogger”.Ā  I really do.Ā  I generally hate being fit into a box and labeled as something. But if you want to get all technical, I guess that’s what I am – a blogger. I have never shared with all of you […]

This

This

This is the little man who all the sudden is sitting up, army crawling AND eating food all within a couple weeks.  This is Zeek’s newest toy, which he can’t even ride one because his legs are too short to reach the pedals (even with […]

The Last Two Weeks of Summer

The Last Two Weeks of Summer

This morning, I woke up, made breakfast for my husband and kissed him goodbye.  The boys both woke up a couple hours earlier than normal but are both playing contently on the floor together.  I’m sipping my coffee and… smiling at the thought of finally […]

A Year of Dates June

A Year of Dates June

Another date in the books.  šŸ™‚  We’re still lagging behind in our date book (just having June’s date a couple weeks ago, mid-July, and yet to do July’s date), but we’re hoping to squeeze two dates in this month to “catch up”. This one wasn’t […]

I just can’t wait

I just can’t wait

I’m about to say something that I never thought I’d say… Ready? I just wish summer were over already. *ducks head in anticipation of flying glassware chucked in my general direction* Really.  I’m ready. Things have felt so un-routine and unscheduled since Asher’s birth.  That’s […]

Enjoying the Little Things

The first time I’ve ever been there.

The first time I’ve ever been there.

To Bend. Sad?  Yeah. Supposedly it’s one of the greatest places around.  I bet I went when I was young, I just have no memory of ever being there.  So we went. (This was about a month ago.  I’m really late in posting this, but […]

We’ll be doing a lot of this, this summer.

We’ll be doing a lot of this, this summer.

Camping, that is. Two weekends ago was 4th of July camping with my family.  This weekend was camping with a big group from our church.  It was a bit of a circus with as many kids as we all collectively have but that just made […]

Camping, The 4th, and The Civil War

Camping, The 4th, and The Civil War

We went camping, like millions of other people this past weekend. It’s not something we usually do (camping over a busy weekend, that is.) and it’s not where we usually would camp. When we camp, we like to camp. Shade trees, dirt, river/creek/lake, tents, showers […]

Our Backyard Summer Makeover!

Our Backyard Summer Makeover!

Well, since summer was quickly approaching, and my father in law was willing (since it IS his backyard), we asked if we could do a little backyard makeover back in May. It needed some sprucing up, no doubt. Especially the left corner of the yard […]
