Addiction…

No, don’t worry, I’m not going all serious on you, and not talking about THAT kind of addiction anyway (whichever way you were thinking, that is). No, you see, among all the modules and applications you can add on Facebook (profile here, come on over and say hello), there’s one called Knighthood that has become…

The Power of a Big Brother

One of Sammy’s endearing traits is his sock selection, with his favorite pair being red. And apparently they go with anything and everything, even if there is no other red on his body. But he’s not wearing them today…this is an important point to make. Tonight, Josh was getting into his diaper bad and pulled…

A Talking Storm…

So yesterday Josh decided to do a change-up: instead of saying “maaamaaaa” in that little baby, barely discernible voice, he’s changed to a full-blown, extremely clear “mama:. Last night there were a few times he was saying it almost in a demanding way: “MAMA!”. And, of course, he gets a kick out of us getting…

Narnia Still Gets Me…

On our way home tonight, we stopped at the store. All us boys stayed in the van while the girls went in (not a sexist thing, just statement of who went where…geez, people!). Want ed to keep Joshua occupied, so I flipped down the screen and Narnia was already in, started from where it left…

What pain?

Ok, so those pains alluded to last week lasted all day, with no relief via Excedrin or Bromelain. Had limited range of motion on my left shoulder, and at times it felt like it was bone-on-bone during certain motions. Wasn’t fun. So after we got back from the baseball game (Rainiers won, even), it was…

Homeschooling: Views from Nobel Prize Winners

Ok, so the below quotes may not be directly speaking to homeschooling, but against compulsory public education. That being said, those same thoughts and ideas are the reason to homeschool… Rabindranath Tagore, winner of the 1913 Nobel Prize in literature:“[School] forcibly snatches away children from a world full of the mystery of God’s own handiwork,…

Up at 3:30 am….where were you?

Ok, so I’m normally up early. But not THIS early. Was wide awake in bed at 3:30 after a decent 6 hours of sleep. Normally something like this would be stress-related, but I’m not overly stressed right now. Just awake. That, and my elbows are killing me (probably a tendinitis flare-up, but without any cause…
