Stuff with the Kids

My dear friends. I am about to let you peek inside my messy, messed-up, slightly mis-wired brain. Please be kind. But on the off chance that one of you has the same issue, I’m going to start by admitting that I have a problem. Wanna hear it? Ready? Deep breath. Here we go… I have [...]

We’re settling into our school-year routine here this week. We started back on Monday and this mama is having a slightly hard time making the adjustment from summer to school-time schedules. But over the weekend, we enjoyed our annual end-of-summer tradition…The county fair! I considered myself a city-girl growing up, but that all changed when [...]

Hello, my friends! Yes, I am still alive. Somehow, the last couple of weeks have slipped through my fingers.

We’ve been steadily crossing things off our 2011 Summer List. There’s been plenty of painting, gardening, reading, swimming and our gigantic 4th of July party. [...]

I love projects that are quick, easy and have a big impact. This one hits all three and it got me a “MOM! That’s cool!” from my son. I seriously want to cover an entire room with cork right now. It gives my little collector a place to display all of those very-important-for-the-moment treasures. Between [...]

It all started with Meg from Whatever. Her Summer List idea has become a bit of a phenomenon in the blogging world. I latched onto her idea and it’s changed the way we do summer. This is our 3rd year doing a Summer List (check out 2009 and 2010) and it helps me be more [...]

Like so many of my friends in the south, we’ve had a few snow days this year. But allow me to point out that when we have a snow day in Pennsylvania, it’s because we actually have SNOW. Lot’s of it! None of this shutting-down-the-city-for-a-week stuff because we got 3 inches of snow. Oh, I [...]
