Tea and Donuts

Tea and Donuts

We eat donuts almost never. A sad state of affairs, I realized, that absolutely needed rectified. So how did we break the fast? With a Saturday morning family date? With a special reason to celebrate? Nope. This baby mama woke up one morning and said to herself, “Self, it’s been too long. It’s time for donuts.” […]

A Poem for a Friday.

A Poem for a Friday.

Loving cousins Hating distance Belly popping With persistence Fresh hair cut For a birthday party Braiding hair And feeling artsy Girls abound In Corban’s friends So time to veg And feel a man Sibling hugs That are staged by them Loving finding Little gems

Having fun while losing a kid.

Having fun while losing a kid.

There once was a group of girls who loved each other and were committed to each other, babies and allergies and ungraciousness and all. They loved to gather at homes and parks and on this particular day, the library. The kiddos built towers, made their mamas food, read some books, and played/watched computer games. After […]

Debt chain broken.

Debt chain broken.

I cleaned out both our phones and our Nikon last week, organized all our photos on our computer (to someday be placed in a Blurb photo album), and found some long lost gems. Like these! This past winter, James led FPU again at our church. In case we didn’t say it before, FPU changed the […]

A flying good time at the airshow.

A flying good time at the airshow.

Three weeks ago, we were in a parking lot when suddenly Corban cried out, “I see a plane!” Sure enough, there was a billboard advertising the upcoming airshow. We marked it on our calendars and counted it day by day by day by day by glorious is-it-today day. We were at the library a week […]

Had to make it happen.

Had to make it happen.

This bunch has tried to swim, oh, every other week or so. But by evening, it’s been too cold, too rainy, or our schedules have clashed. A couple weeks ago, the afternoon was gorgeous, perfect swimming weather. So we made plans for swimming. And by evening, it was chilly. But I was bound and determined […]

The Lego Tunnel

The Lego Tunnel

My family dropped Jon off at Liberty University last weekend. *sniff sniff* I won’t tell you how many of his diapers I changed, haircuts I botched, or “Get-out-of-bed-NOW”s I screamed. But there he is, off finding his way (which is quite the chore, I understand, at that big school), doing something amazing with that big […]

When Jaeda was sick (and we were nervous).

When Jaeda was sick (and we were nervous).

Not quite a month ago, we got a call from our local grocery store saying we had swiped our store card when we purchased some peaches…that were now recalled. Two weeks prior, we had purchased said organic peaches and had rinsed them, nothing fancy. (And of course, I was in a peach mood and ate […]

Visiting Aunt Erin

Visiting Aunt Erin

A couple months ago, we promised Aunt Erin we’d visit her this summer. Suddenly, summer was almost over, so a couple weekends ago, we made good on our promise. And are we ever glad we did! Erin’s just moved into a beautiful 1920 apartment with all the quirks, thick trim, and large windows you’d expect. […]
