It’s that time of year again…

I realized this morning while walking Cameron and Ellie to their first day of school that the expression “time flies” is ringing more and more true with each passing year. Honestly, I could subject my loyal reader (notice the clever use of singular there…hi mom) with countless paragraphs of ‘where-has-the-time-gone’ anecdotes, but instead I...

Cameron = 9

Wow. Wow. Wow.  Each year it’s the same story…but I have to admit that each year I’m just blown away at how old our kids are getting.  Today, Cameron turns the ripe ol’ age of NINE!  Honestly, these ‘birthday-blog-posts’ seem to be coming much to rapidly!  Enough already! This past year was such an amazing year for Cameron –...

MICHIGAN 2010: The Videos

Well…..we’re back!!  It was a wonderful vacation that has (again) provided us with memories to last a lifetime.  But as we try to ease back into our routines (and crawl out of the mountain of laundry), it is taking a little longer to get the pictures organized and blog post written up.  So, I thought this would be a good time to post up the videos I made...

VACATION!! (finally!)

Ahhhhhh…the time has finally come!  For the next 16 days, we will be enjoying a nice break from the day-to-day grind.  Gone will be the conference calls…and meetings…and household chores…and laundry…and ’blah’.  Yep…all of that will be gone soon.  In case you’re wondering what could possibly replace all those...

Family Reunion – 2010

Another 4th of July with family has come and gone.  And while it’s only been a week since we returned from New Mexico, I already find myself reflecting on the peacefulness and beauty of the land we get to enjoy once a year, and the memories of family we don’t see nearly often enough. After a somewhat eventful drive down (rain! rain! rain!), we had our...

Playing With Toys

I love toys…and that should come as a surprise to no one. That being said, I never realized how much I love them until I watched my kiddos play with my collection of Fisher Price Adventure People this past weekend. And while they came nowhere near enjoying them as much as Cory and I did growing up, it was still a blast watching them play with them. I have to admit...

World Cup Fever

So I have to admit that I am finding myself getting completely wrapped up in the World Cup. Whether it’s watching the games live on my computer, or reading the wrap-ups from the games I missed, I just can’t seem to get enough of this event. Also, it has been great to see Cameron getting so excited about watching the matches (and practicing his footwork in...

Fun in the Fresh Air

The pop-up camper has been hauled out of storage, cleaned, and dragged up to the mountains…which can only mean one thing:  Summer has officially started!  That’s right…this past weekend we spent a couple nights enjoying some time away from the daily chaos at Camp Dick campground in Peaceful Valley, Colorado.  We stayed at this site last year and...

Another Year in the Books

It’s hard to believe, but soon we will be turning our calendars to June, 2010.  A true sign of how fast time seems to be flying by is that the kiddos have finished up another year of elementary school!  No longer do Jen and I have a 1st grader and a 3rd grader…but rather a ‘soon-to-be’ 2nd and 4th grader!! (and one who hasn’t even started...

I’m so proud…

I just wanted to share an email that Jen and I received today from Cameron’s teacher.  I know what you’re thinking (because it’s what I was thinking too) – getting an email from your kiddos teacher is usually NOT a good thing, but in this case it was! Here is the email that literally turned my day around, and made me so proud of what an amazing...

A ‘Sports-filled’ Weekend

Although we are accustomed to squeezing in a couple of soccer games each weekend, we were lucky enough to also catch a baseball game as well!  It was the final Saturday of soccer games for the spring season, so we made sure to cheer extra-hard for our amazing kiddos as they finished the season on a high note…and since Cory’s daycare had a special promo day...

The New Style

So…hopefully by now you have noticed that there’s something different ’round these parts!  That’s right – after serving us well for the past year or so, I finally decided it was time to change up our website design.  Although the ‘old’ look offered a lot of bells and whistles, sadly they came with a price (it always frustrated...
