Hello Summer

This past school year just flew by… maybe it’s because I’ve now got three kids at home… maybe it’s because I’m getting older… who knows!


Obviously sitting down to pre-write posts isn’t working out so well. This past week has been filled with such a mix of things. Last Thursday I took the kids to the pediatrician for flu shots, a check up {Noah’s 4 year… I’m only 3 months behind} and the latest set of vaccinations. Needless to say, it was inevitable that at least 1 of my children would have a reaction to the shots… and it was Noah. The poor kid’s temp started rising Thursday evening and he didn’t break it until sometime on Sunday.

The end of an era?

Nap time… it was the time when I had at least an hour and a half to myself… to get done what needed to be done here at home without interruptions from the kids. Notice the “was”? It seems that one little 4 year old has decided that, although he is sleepy and starts to …

Monday Morning Updates

Which should be otherwise titled as…

Roseola, Birthdays and Potty Training

and then add to that teething, organizing, cleaning and creating… needless to say last week was a fun week!

Friday Flashback – Out of the Mouths of Babes

Oh my goodness, this next post had me laughing in remembrance after I just read it again. I knew that Noah was a late talker, but I had forgotten just how late of a talker her was… which makes me now feel better about Abby… our second shy talker… but I digress… I had forgotten about how little he spoke and what his first words were… or weren’t. I’m happy to say that in the 2 years following this post, Noah’s vocabulary has sky rocketed and he (and Abby too) both talk non-stop… no really, non-stop. His preschool teachers even mentioned that he has blossomed into quite the little talker over the past year!

Happy Summer!!

Yesterday was the first official day of the summer!!! Yay!!! Is it bad that I’m silently hoping that the we get the rain that was forecast for today? It’s almost noon though and the sky is starting to clear up, so I don’t think that it’s going to happen.

Road trip to Pennsylvania

One week ago I was in full road trip mode… the bag still needed to be packed, laundry was being finished up and the house needed to be cleaned before we left. By Thursday evening, the kids and I had said our goodbyes to Ray and we were on our way my dad’s house to spend the night, before leaving early Friday morning for PA. Noah was especially excited to go, since just a few days earlier my aunt emailed us this photo…

Let Summer Begin!

Today was Noah’s last day of his first year of pre-school. The weather was the perfect “last day of school” weather… sunny and warm {it’s supposed to be in the upper 80’s/90’s today} and a nice strong breeze… okay so the breeze is actually more like a good strong wind… but it helps keep things a little cooler.

One dry, one to go!

Our diaper/pull-up days are numbered here in our house! While Noah has been dry during the day for the past year, he has still been wearing {and needing pull-ups} at night. Over the past few months, the number of dry nights have been increasing, but there were still many, many, many nights that weren’t {not to mention that we had our fair share of nights that ended up with wet sheets}.
