Life's Challenges

January is the month of tests isn’t it? Our stamina is tested with the short days, cold temperatures and plenty of cloudy skies. But if you are among those working to keep those resolutions alive, the tests are even greater. Read More

One Last Halloween

I’m a little sad about Halloween this year. It may be the last year for us for the mad dash to candy euphoria. Halloween has always been a big deal for us. We decorate the house, make an annual trip to the pumpkin patch and carve jack o lanterns for the front porch. Read More

Ready, Set, Go!

It was months in the planning, and the effort was nothing short of organizing a peace summit. Of course the chance to leave town for even a day or two without taking the children along is a crazy notion. Read More

Watering the Pumpkins

We entertained a 4-year-old this weekend. I love the busy-all-the-time age. He treated us to constant stream of thought conversation that darted from topic to topic faster than we could keep up. Read More
