No Sewing – But Lots of Busy!

By |September 12th, 2012|My kids, The Sewing Summit|3 Comments

Fall soccer started yesterday, we spent two hours at the ball park watching Sophia (#5 above), and Emmalie play. Emmalie's game ended just as the sun was setting at 7pm, (way too early!) and we hurried home to eat dinner, finish homework and get everyone to bed. It's so fun to watch them run around, [...]

Catching Up

With the kids all in school for 2.5 hours (Owen is done by 11:15 am) I've been working into my own routine.  Mainly including a bike ride after taking them on their bikes to school. It's so nice to plug in my headphones and push myself to keep going up, I have a nine mile [...]

Off to School!

By |September 4th, 2012|My kids|6 Comments

His sisters started school almost two weeks ago, but today is the first day of Kindergarten for Owen! He was nervous and shy, didn't want me to take his picture at home even, but still excited. And the play dough on the tables put him right at ease after hanging up his empty backpack, and finding his name [...]

Little Things

By |August 27th, 2012|My kids, sewing, Thankful|10 Comments

Going back to school last week reminds me to slow down, and be thankful for the little things. Little things, like happy, healthy kids. Family and (furry) friends. Kids that like to learn and go to school. And the one left behind this week, happy to have extra hugs, while mom makes the adjustment too. [...]

Everyone had fun until they were worn out! ----- I'm getting started on my challenge today. How are you doing on your goals? Looking forward to seeing your [...]

Free Weekend

I love my family! Joe decided this last weekend would be a good one to go camping. My schedule (of deadlines) is such that I wasn't free enough to join them, so he and the kids had fun without me! Unfortunately, the weather was rather gloomy, and it rained a lot. Thankfully they all had [...]

I know, things have been quiet here...I have my reasons, and one of them is this little guy! Owen is five today - it hardly seems possible, yet I am so thankful for the joy that he brings to our lives. Hope you are having a great week! Amy

Almost 12

Ella will be 12 in less than two weeks - I have a hard time wraping my head around that number still! Anyway, she has a violin concert at school this week, and requested a purple skirt. Nothing too busy, she said, and was immediately drawn to my Kona stash. 45 minutes later we had [...]

My days this week have been scattered!  With soccer filling up a few nights, and beautiful weather pulling us outdoors - I've had a hard time getting to the computer to tell you about it all! Yesterday I gave Owen his summer haircut - he wasn't excited about it, but it HAD to be done! [...]

Owen’s Haircut

By |January 5th, 2012|My kids|12 Comments

The other day Owen agreed to a hair cut. This boy has been refusing to have his hair cut, and it was hanging in his eyes! We figured if long hair was the worst of it for now, then fine, no biggie. But when he finally said yes, I went for it!  Joe and I [...]
