This is the first year I’ve attempted to grow watermelon (which the kids LOVE) and am so pleased to see a few of them looking edible. :) Its been so fun to see the melons growing a bit more each day. I’m hoping this little baby will be ready to eat soon, but I have no idea when to pick it. Any suggestions? I think I need to track down my Botanical Interests seed packet to read more about it. :) How’s your garden doing this year?

It’s Wednesday and I’m sick and posting a few pics is all I can muster right now. :P This is what happens when you get a foot of snow before Halloween: Two days later “I’m melting, I’m melting!”: Happy Halloween from the mime, doggy, snow princess & Mr. Clean: See more Wordless Wednesday posts at the original WW home and at 5 Minutes for Mom.

There’s a lot I’ve been dealing with lately, including a broken carRead More →
This is one of those “not quite Wordless Wednesday” posts. ;) I snapped this picture with my iPhone of Ava at our “meet the teacher” night Tuesday. She starts kindergarten Wednesday morning and will be going two full days and one half day each week. The first day is a full day. I’ve been filled with a mix of emotions (excitement, nervousness, sadness, happiness, pride, and even close to a panic attack this evening) about my girl starting kindergarten and I hope to write about it soon. This new school is such a big change from what Ava’s used to (a Waldorf home-based preschool withRead More →

Yes, I know how totally creepy this picture looks (and how weird you must think we are for stuffing our kids in bags – nope, it’s not the first time LOL). Rest assured, no children were harmed in the making of this picture and no, this was not Photoshopped in any way. Ava really was in the bag with just her head sticking out (for about as long as it took me to snap this picture). Then she got out … and Julian got in. ;) The things we do to entertain ourselves around here. :P To get your own Holy Monkey! shirt (without theRead More →
