our september was verrrrry uneventful. no trips. no adventures. just regular life. well. regular-ish. you know. because we are still in coranavirus covid quarantine pandemic lockdown. school has continued to be more of a “just keep up with math and wordly wise and listen to me do one chapter of a read aloud and then […]
you would think that since we are no longer traveling and i don’t have to squeeze blogging in amongst various amazing and epic adventures, that i would be able to keep up with it better. you would think. anyhoooo. it’s only 11 days into september (edited: 19 days) and i’m finally getting to the august […]
boring june, 2019
well. nothing exciting happened in june. so. here’s my list of less than exciting things that happened. i’ll kick things off with the random things around the house happenings. now that we were in a house, anna is hoping to up her sewing game. we scored a used version of the same machine i sew […]
may miscellany. a wee bit of april, too.
well. i’m up to the end of may with my blogging catchup. now it’s time for that one post that details the random bits of our life that don’t fit into a post. they aren’t adventures. they aren’t tales of new dogs or new houses or quilts or birthdays. they are regular life things, mostly. […]
carlsbad-ish camping miscellany.
this is the post about our two weeks in carlsbad, when we weren’t exploring nearby national parks. but, before that, our trip from big bend to where we were staying near carlsbad was over 5 hours, so we broke it up with a layover at the fort stockton, texas walmart. decidedly less cool than big […]
family easter mountain trip

clermont, FL. week one.
ahhhhhh. wifi. we haven’t had it for the entire week. well, we had derek’s work hotspot, but we have tried to use that very little for personal stuff. but, he ordered something that gives us some data, and now i’m cruising along. so. prepare for a flurry of updates, because we have had a busy […]
random summer happenings.
other than our beach trip and our ny trip, we haven’t been doing much this summer. it’s way harder to do things with the treacherous trio that i had ever imagined. i think their age difference plays into that. but, mostly, we just hang out around the house and such. here’s a photo filled post […]
pools and ice cream and bubbles, mostly.
yep. so here’s what’s been happening in our little world lately… hazel had her first swim in a real pool. she was a fan. i also had anna clinging to me like i crazy person, so it made my experience a little overwhelming. but, here’s a pic before anna “joined us”. isaac. he loves the […]
the other things that have been happening lately.
besides anna turning four, hazel turning five months, the strawberry picking and the butterfly growing, these are some pics of what’s been happening around here… hazel is fast outgrowing the bumbo seat. she can almost turn herself completely around in it. and she rocks violently and it slides across the table. and this: test run […]
