We (well, I) never got around to sending out Christmas cards this year. One of my favorite things about getting cards is reading the quick little blurbs about what the family has been up to, what their adventures have been and what their kids have been up to. I know that these cards kind of… Read More 2022..Our Year Wrapped In A Blurb
Last weekend I got a text from one of Logan’s teachers. She was kindly letting me know that her and some other teachers would be out for the upcoming week due to illness. Her amazing one on one was also down for the count. Yikes. Two teachers would be there, along with a sub, if… Read More Girls Only, NO Boys Allowed!
At times, parenting can be a complete guessing game, right? We like to think we know what we are doing, but are quietly questionning our every move and decision. Are we feeding them the healthiest diet available, are they excelling as they should in school, are they doing enough extra activities, are they doing too… Read More Oh, It’s You Again
Let’s talk about fundraising. We all have been involved in this is some way or another. It all starts when we are little…raising funds for school, sports, hobbies, etc. It teaches us about helping others, and reminds us that when we all get together, anything is possible. But how does it feel when the funds… Read More Thank You.
The first three months (yes, I said months!) of the quarantine were brutal. They were filled with uncertainty, fear, pain, anger and an overwhelmingly sense of helplessness. No, this was not because of COVID (although, it did help to heighten it). It was because something was going on with Logan, something we didn’t have an… Read More Who Will Help?
When you think of Disney you think of magical experiences, thrilled and exhausted children (and adults) and all around happiness. Sure, it’s exhausting for the parents, and takes a while to recover from the emptied bank accounts, but it’s worth it, right? Our first trip a couple of years ago was great! The kids loved… Read More Disney…Magical Anxiety
7… where have the years gone?! Every birthday with any of my kids is always bittersweet. We are always so proud of how far they have come and are amazed at the little people they are turning out to be. But, my heart also hurts that time is creeping away. As that saying goes, the… Read More Celebrating 7
This year was the year of the art show! David and I are still in awe over the New York show, and now we are completely blown away by the hearts and talents of everyone in our lives. This last fundraiser of the year was absolutely spectacular. Our niece, Lindsay chose to organize an art… Read More A Night of Art for Pitt Hopkins
Since Logan’s diagnosis people have shown their true colors, both good and bad. Thankfully, we have seen way more good…from friends, strangers, and especially family. And our recent trip (26 hours away to be exact!) to New York City showed us the good even more. About a year ago my cousin, Brian, called me out… Read More Art in the City
These days there is an awareness day for just about everything. It is awesome, but very bittersweet for us. September 18th is Pitt Hopkins Awareness Day, and as much as I love our new extended family, I wish we were not a part of this day. The Bitter I try to keep things positive, but… Read More The Bittersweet Awareness Day
