Costco, TOMS, Ankles

Costco, TOMS, Ankles

First While shopping for the food for the Spring Break service trips party (more on that tomorrow), I noticed something at Costco.  Christmas stuff.  Lots of it.  I hate when holidays roll out commercially long before their time.  Fall first, THEN Christmas.  Grrr. But this time, I particularly freaked a little because I have a … Continue reading

Not Your Grandma’s Baby Shower

Not Your Grandma’s Baby Shower

If you’ve been a reader for a bit, you likely know that I have a thing about intergenerational relationships.  Research increasingly points to this wonderful dynamic of mixing across the ages as a key to lifelong faith for adolescents.  What’s more, any of us in the older generations (doesn’t matter how much older) benefit as well.  And … Continue reading

It’s a… (for real)

It’s a… (for real)

Earlier today, we had the most original, kick-in-the-pants shower ever.  An update on that will come soon. To give you a sense of it, I’ll let you know that Curtis won a bronze medal in Speed Diapering, and I was crushed when I lost my shot at a medal for baby bowling after a rogue … Continue reading

A Tale of Two Bathrooms

A Tale of Two Bathrooms

Once there was a bathroom.  It was built in 1986.  The water ran, the toilet flushed.  It was a perfectly functional bathroom. It had a bathroom friend, that again, worked just fine. And yet, both didn’t quite work.  There was no storage in one, no where to hang your towel in the other.  One spat mildew at you … Continue reading

Here’s what I did today… What did you do this fine Saturday?

Sunday Funday

Sunday Funday

Here’s a list of three totally unrelated things I felt like sharing today.  Usually this is when I write the ‘Sunday Times’–a segment of commentary on a news article.  I kinda get there in #3, so I’m calling it good. 1.  It’s cold and icky out.  So Flop is doing this… When it gets warm … Continue reading

What Flop Done Did

What Flop Done Did

This is Flop. He’s our black lab– highly furry, and over 95 lbs. This weekend, Flop got a bath. So Flop went to Scrubby Puppy, a self-serve dog washing facility.  They have raised tubs, so the human doesn’t have to bend over.  They have a drying platform, again, at human height.  (There are bolts in the wall … Continue reading

Guess What I Won?

Guess What I Won?

About this time last year, I began following Bridget over at Bake at 350, because her cookies are just the coolest.   Like these turkeys… So I bought some merengue powder and the right kind of food coloring.  Then we made Mickey Mouse faces with my favorite small human, Zoie (whose mom blogs at A … Continue reading

Laundry Service for College Students–Your thoughts?

Last week was New Student Orientation at our school, featuring a full schedule of activities for students and their families.  This included an afternoon expo, where booths from various companies and organizations lined up on a lawn while the new students, and their new parents browsed.  Costco, a couple of banks, Young Life, on campus organizations, and … Continue reading

Water Dogs

In the midst of the summer heat, our 95+ lb. labrador Flop finds comfort in a blue baby pool with 2 inches of water.  So when I saw this series, I just had to share it.  It’s from Carli Davidson, who may just be my new favorite photographer.  Why? This. And there’s more. And there are … Continue reading
