I miss my back door neighbor Catherine so much. Last spring this time, on any day like today, when it’s sunny and 50 degrees or higher, we’d spontaneously meet after naptime in one of our backyards to let the kids play while we talked about random little details from
I have one husband, three (soon to be four) kids, and two plants that are my responsibility. I water my plants once a week, I would guess, and I never make a note to myself to remember. I just see them thriving for a number of days and then start to look a little droopy and
Bauer and I are close to wrapping up our history study of ancient civilizations. The last civilization we studied (and for the longest amount of time) was Rome, and finally today we began to learn about the fall of Rome. I have found the study of Rome to be so interesting and

In recent months, I’ve read two books that, among other things, espouse a low-carb lifestyle. They were Wheat Belly by William Davis and Grain Brain by David Perlmutter, if you’re curious. I enjoyed the books but am definitely not sold on the low-carb paleo
Little Critter is still going strong around here, but at least Bauer picked a few Curious George books on our last trip to the library. I finished The Forever Girl and now can’t wait to start Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. It’s my last book by him, until he writes more.
