Spring Soccer {2016}

We just finished our spring soccer season at the end of May. The kids love the fun of getting exercise, practicing a sport, and, of course, seeing their friends. Here are a few photos of our season: All ready to play! Mitch was goalie for a while. Sister (74) against brother. Lauren and Mitch were… Continue reading Spring Soccer {2016}


Another Year of Learning

It’s hard to believe that we are done with yet another school year. This one has been particularly difficult for me.

The ABC’s of Our First Week

The first week of our school year is officially in the books. And, may I pause here and shout for joy? I have to say, I didn’t really think I’d make it! At least, not with my sanity in tact. Let’s take it alphabetical order, shall we? (Don’t worry, we won’t do all 26.) C… Continue reading The ABC’s of Our First Week
