Soccer?

Words

The Not So Early Birds

The biggest deal to the boys about summer vacation is being able to sleep in. They get to most of the time except the mornings that little brother has speech in the morning. That is a challenge...

 

Truthful

On the Road Again

This weekend’s trip took us to Boston. After the workday we got into our car and headed to St. Regis to pick up my mom. She had been patiently waiting for us to hit the road for an hour. Finally at...

The Pay Off

Furry Friend

After years of the kids begging for a puppy we finally got one. It was a surprise addition that neither myself or my husband could have foreseen. We had a wild weekend sleepover that included four...
