This morning I witnessed the sweetest moment between siblings.  I was trying to get everyone (myself included) ready so we could get out the door.  It was also “picture day”, which meant Wendy had a cute dress to put on.  She came into my bathroom, looking for help to zip up her dress.  I...

Front Yard Fun

We planted a bunch of daffodils and tulips last fall. And for while, every neighbors’ bulbs were coming up, but ours. But finally ours have bloomed and it’s such a lovely sight! While Mike was hard at work weeding, I snapped some pics of the kids. And I think I got some good ones,...

For Mom’s Everywhere!

I got to attend the MOPS Annual Conference last September and had a great time. One of the highlights was being introduced to a Christian kid/adult-friendly band called Go Fish. Their tagline is “Great music for kids that won’t drive parents bonkers.” And it’s true – I really enjoy the sound of their music,...

It’s a dog’s life

Poor Logan doesn’t get much love these days. Or if he does, it’s probably not the way he’d like to receive it. He doesn’t like it when the kids shout at him or man-handle (kid-handle?) him, but he tolerates them pretty well. And he does love to snuggle on the couch, or curl up...

Sleep … Glorious Sleep!

Ha… I see when I entered my title that I’ve used that line before.  I guess when you have a newborn, anytime you get a few unbroken hours of sleep, it’s glorious. I am pleased to report that Adam slept for TEN whole hours last night!  8pm to 6pm — woo hoo! I can...

He’s no slacker Dad

A few posts back, I showed Mike sleeping on the job. To keep things balanced, here’s another glimpse into Mike’s weekend duties. He loves to bike and the kids love to tag along for the ride. They will bike around Arlington, stopping off at various playgrounds. When the babe gets older, I hope to...

Our Big Backyard

We’ve had a lot of gorgeous weather around here and the kids have been taking full advantage. The love to picnic and play in the backyard after preschool. They especially love to dig in Daddy’s garden. It can get a little messy, but that’s half the fun (til it’s time to do the laundry…)...

How does your garden grow?

It is well known who has the green thumb in this house (hint: it ain’t me). Mike enjoys planting his garden each spring and eating the fruits of his labor during the summer. The kids were mildly interested last year and seem to be moreso this year. One Saturday morning in March, they helped...

Babysitting, Daddy-style

Disclaimer: this is NOT how Mike parents. He is incredibly attentive and busy with them. But even Super Dads get worn out and need a break. Isn’t it nice that he could still “watch the kids” while taking a breather? Mike is so good, he can even watch the older kids while taking care...
