Saturday Soccer

We have officially entered the world of organized sports.  Sam, a kindergartner, joined the local soccer association. We are in the 4th week of our season, but due to various rain and holidays, have only had one official practice thus far.   If you’ve ever wondered what soccer looks like at this level, let me...

Cox Farms

I had planned on taking the kids to Cox Farms this week, because I purchased a Groupon, that was good for this week only.  The idea was to go Wednesday afternoon with a friend, after early release, but the weather didn’t cooperate.  So then we revised our plans, and decided to surprise the kids...

You Capture: In The Kitchen

We’ve been enjoying some unstructured time this week, after a summer full of scheduled activities. Wendy decided to take the play food and set up shop.  You can see her meal prep behind the counter.  Her customer, Purple Bear, is sitting on a stool and she is serving him pizza by the slice.

Yesterday, we enjoyed a fun afternoon soiree at my brother’s house.  We had a party for good family friends who will be moving away (boo hoo!).  We brought the kids’ bikes, since my brother lives on a cul de sac, it makes for a nice safe place to ride.  Or so I thought.

Fun at Camp Straight Street

This past week, I had my kids enrolled at “Camp Straight Street“, a day camp run by Cherrydale Baptist Church.  I’m familiar with the church since I’m involved in their mom’s group so I was excited to see them offering this program this year.  I was looking for an all day camp to give...

How do you like your eggs?

Sam loves to learn how to do new things and loves to help in the kitchen.  I confess, I’m not always eager to have the kids underfoot, but Mike has been great about teaching them.  Sam and Wendy learned to crack eggs at a young age — I’m pretty sure he had Sam doing...

Summer Fun with Little Ones (in Northern Va and beyond)

I was invited to speak at my local MOPS group this week on the subject of fun things to do with preschoolers throughout the summer.  In this case, preschoolers means children kindergarten aged and younger.   As a mom of three such children (ages 6, 4 and 2) and I took on the task with...

Easter

We had a lovely, low key Easter. We dyed eggs the night before.   We almost skipped it, but the kids had a blast, so I’m glad we made the time.  I never got around to buying the PAAS kit, but it turns out that the food coloring dyes I had on hand worked just...

Eggstravaganza

On Saturday, we went to a big festival hosted by the church that runs our preschool. It started with a cute puppet show – the gal was a pretty good ventriloquist.   This picture was taken from pretty far back.  I should have held onto my camera, with an antsy toddler, I ended...
