Stretching with Daddy

Just another page to share. Not much to say about this one, other than the kiddos decided to stretch with Chad before he went out for a run. This is back in 2007. A fun little memory. Enjoy!

Flippin’ out

A new page to share: Yesterday, the four of us participated in Outrun the Sun, a fun run/walk to benefit melanoma research. We were there to support a friend of mine (and the sister of my best bud, Michele), who was diagnosed with malignant melanoma at the age of 32. (Wear your sunscreen!) Anyway, at

Going under cover

Ah, building forts. I'm sure you probably did it as a kid, as did I. There's something about hiding and playing in one's own personally designed hide-out that appeals to little kids, and mine are no different. Wanted to share my newest layout. Enjoy.  Here's the journaling: There is something about building a fort that

A day part crazy and part lazy

Here's a recent page I did about an old topic I blogged about back in July 2008. I'm trying to cover some 2008 topics before moving onto more of 2009. Otherwise, I might never get back to those! Anyway, a page to pass the time. Enjoy. Here's the journaling: There wasn’t much special about this

Silly Sayings

G brought home one of those keeper school projects the other day, the kind that will stick around until he's 30-something and I'm cleaning out my house like my mom is doing right now. (And then it will go right back to him!) I know I keep a LOT of his school work—something I'm trying

Thankful for a self-entertainer

Today was supposed to be the day things returned to "normal" around here—the kids were supposed to be back to school and day care after spring break; Chad was supposed to be back to work after his own spring break; and I was supposed to have a quiet house for a full day of work…a

A peek at E’s monthly/yearly book

I scrapbook a lot of stuff. I admit it. And while I love that I have a fun way to document my kids' youngest years, I know that sometimes I just keep track of too much stuff. But I'm OK with that. I'd rather keep track of too much, than not enough, I suppose. Because

A page to pass the time

Just a quick share of a digital scrapbook page I did on the plane on the way home from Colorado. The warm weather last weekend made me eager for spring and summer. Enjoy. Here's the journaling: Our front yard is one of our favorite places to be in the summertime. Chad and G*** love to

Sweet little swimmers

G and E had their final swim lessons last Thursday, and they walked away after eight sessions more confident in the water. G became pretty much a master at freestyle, after we had to talk his instructor out of trying to teach him butterfly until he was a confident swimmer in the most basic stroke.

The newest animal in the family

Papa and Omi (my dad and Anita) sent home with us a giant bear for G & E. He barely squeezed into a giant suitcase, and the kids have LOVED him since he joined our family (another animal!) on Thursday. (I got home Wednesday, but the kids were already in bed.) Just wanted to share

So good to be home

I love coming home almost as much as I love going on vacation. For some reason, the process of coming home after being gone for a while awakens my senses to all of the things I love about my family, my home, my animals, my way of life. I need that reminder on occasion. Coming

Driven by insanity

I think the only reason anyone would want to do what we saw a group of guys doing yesterday would have to be an insane amount of adrenaline. At Box Canyon Falls just outside of Ouray (pronounced Yur-ay), every night someone turns on a series of faucets that unleash running water over the sides of
