I recognize that living with anyone day-after-day-after-day, is not easy. I am outnumbered by man-boys who can’t seem to put the toilet seat down and their sense of humor (gross things, fails, pranks, etc.) is not what I consider funny. Casey thinks I “fuss” too much and should chillax! I fight the good fight by repeating […]
Earlier this year I was asked to help with a county fair wheelbarrow garden project for Erik’s class. I thought I would just be helping plant some seeds in a wheelbarrow and maybe deliver it to the county fair. It turned out to be a much bigger project that I thought. We had to plant […]

Patients interacted up close with animal ambassadors and were able to ask questions about the wildlife and their habitats. After the kids visited, employees were invited to walk […]
We have been wanting to replace the ugly light/ceiling fan thingy that has been barely lighting our dining room. It is on the to-fix list, but we just couldn’t get to it.

It was a great experience. On Friday night, Pedar and I celebrated Mark’s “Janet Jackson” themed 50th Birthday! […]
Sweet Liam! You are so wonderful! I love your dimples and your kind voice. I love your hugs, playfulness and happy heart! Happy 10th Birthday, Liam! We all love you very much and look forward to playing with you really soon!!!
This past weekend was the school auction. The auction event team really knocked it out of the park. I volunteered Pedar (sorry, not sorry honey) to create the classroom projects for the silent auction. He made a measuring board for Erik’s second grade class and he painted a dragon playing a guitar for Casey’s sixth grade […]
