What are the kids into?


  I haven’t updated on what the kids are up to these days so I thought this beautiful but terribly hot Sunday would be a nice time to settle in with a cup of tea and do that! Smilie Baby is now 4 and a wonderfully wild little preschooler. She has a passion for learning […]

This photo was a reminder that I don’t always get what I expect I will. The children have desires, plans, and moods all their own and those do and should […]
