I’ve been waking myself up snoring lately. A couple weeks ago Dave recorded me snoring since I didn’t believe I actually snored. (He still thinks he doesn’t snore either cause I haven’t done the same for him.) I was worried it was going to be the monstrously loud sounds I scared myself awake with when … Continue reading May 23, 2016 – An assortment of thoughts leading to goodness.
You guys. Parenting is hard. I don’t have to tell you this. You already know this. You’ve got kids. You are a parent. Anyone who is a parent knows it’s hard. Nothing really goes the way you expect it will. You figure you’ll be crafty and fun and understanding and your kids will get it. … Continue reading April 25, 2016 Parenting is hard
I'd never actually been in a Montessori preschool before last week. I've heard about them, and truthfully, I thought my son's preschool was sort of similar to Montessori, but now I know it's not.

My people still need me in a … Continue reading Wallace’s

We frequently listen to the music provided through our cable company and they post pictures of the artist during the songs, and they copy … Continue reading Merry Christmas from our (gingerbread making) house to yours
I was so excited to meet Baby C this past week! She's adorable and her parents are so in love. Welcome to the world little girl!
A couple of days ago I saw a post on Facebook from my old high school. It’s a small private school and they have a Director of Development. He was asking alumni to describe their profession - always a good list to have on hand for a school’s director of development. I clicked through to … Continue reading Introductions are tricky
Owen is the youngest munchkin of our family friends. A couple weeks ago he was out playing and had a freak accident that caused an incredible amount of brain trauma. He was rushed to the hospital with swelling and bleeding on the brain. He had several surgeries, and at at least one point, his parents … Continue reading Owen – Week 1
Caleb is one of the nicest seniors you'll ever meet. He's a lumberjack, through and through, an adventurer, an outdoorsmen and a fan of his family. I had a great time learning about so many of our local outdoor places that are great for photo shoots. We went all over the Milwaukie area, with Caleb … Continue reading Senior shoot – Caleb
