Scootin’ Through the Week

Scootin’ Through the Week

The last two weeks… It is always a whirlwind.  I am always tired.  I am always incredibly busy.  I am always stretched very thin, emotionally and physically.  Being a mother is hard.  And I love it! My parents came last week because my dad was asked to chaperone a group of students during a career […]

Today, at church, one of the primary leaders had to run and get me from Young Women.  She said that Anjali had smashed her finger in a folding chair.  I’ve never quite heard Anjali scream for as long as she did, or as loud.  It took us almost two hours to calm her down, poor […]

Purple Shake

Woah.  One second while I gather my brains and figure out what I’ve done with my life this week. … There.  Now I’ve got it.  No, wait… maybe not.  There was just so much, it’s hard to pinpoint everything!  We are now in the full swing of the school year.  Both girls started dance (Elli […]

Flippin’ Your Fins

Flippin’ Your Fins

Last week’s post was pretty Anjali-heavy.  This week is full of Elli and Lincoln.  Elli’s fourth birthday is tomorrow and I can’t believe how big she has gotten.  Four seems like way too big for my middle child.  We had a Little Mermaid party on Saturday morning, and she absolutely loved it!  I also ended […]

First Days of Kindergarten

First Days of Kindergarten

We’ve had a big week, as usual.  Anjali started Kindergarten!  She really seems to be liking it.  She has been pretty energetic about it and I can’t wait to see what she learns this year.  She also started a music class this week (continued from last year,) and is really excited about the keyboard. We […]

The Final Catch-up

The Final Catch-up

Wow, we are pooped.  It has taken quite some time for us to feel normal again after this huge trip to Europe.  We loved the whole trip, from start to finish, and we love reminiscing about everything we saw and did.  The last week and a half has consisted of blogging about it, readjusting to […]

Time to Say Goodbye – Day 13

Time to Say Goodbye – Day 13

And then we were finished.  We had a morning in Paris and then quickly scurried to the airport.  We were running a tad behind because of the train schedules, some ticket issues and some last-minute sight-seeing, but we knew we’d still make it with a little time to spare.  (Turns out, you really need that […]

Arrivederci – Day 11

Arrivederci – Day 11

And then we said goodbye to Italia.  *Sniff*  After we woke up in the morning, we went to church with Erica.  I met another friend that I had known from the old Italian branch (Gioia Durrazzani) and attended my old military branch.  Both branches are now wards and are much bigger than I remembered.  They’re […]
