As I write this, I feel like I’m totally in the depth of fall. The trees are all changing color and we’re having some wild (for the Pacific Northwest, where pretty much a breeze is wild) autumnal weather. We even had HAIL today! The kids were incredibly excited by that and Lillie believes it is […]

Happy fall, y’all! We’re finally to the most wonderful time of the year and I have to say that this season has started out on the perfect note. Those of you who know me know that my birthday is the first day of fall and I celebrated by doing the most pandemic thing ever–nothing at […]

I feel like I should explain myself. A few weeks ago, I said I was going to be posting my weekly reading, well, weekly again…and then I didn’t. I should have known better not to commit myself to a new schedule right when school was starting. Then I started thinking, again, about how I do […]

Well…long time, no see! I didn’t mean to take such a long break, it just sort of happened. Last week, we were out of town (more on that below) and the weeks before that were just instances when time got out of hand. It’s hard to believe we are already in August. Of course, it […]

We are another week into summer! I noticed that the stores are putting out the school supplies, reminding us that fall is coming. Pat took this week off work, but we didn’t do much. Chris had his writing group and swimming lessons and Lillie had her math class, which tied us to home. On Friday, […]

I hope that my American friends had a Happy 4th of July! I did not do a weekly reads post this week as I was celebrating on the 4th and, on the third, was busy prepping for the 4th. I’ll cover two weeks in my next update post. Anyway, since I last wrote, Oregon is […]
