Good-bye Swing Set!

Ack, our swing set!  It began falling apart, so Rob is in the process of dismantling it.  I suppose we could have tried to reinforce it here or there to extend its life, but we’ve always been a bit concerned about how close it is to the wall behind (an accident waiting to happen).  And …

The campers have returned!

They made it through the night!  I actually left the porch light on in case they came home in the middle of the night.  It sounds like the trip was mostly a success – hooray!  There was setting up camp, playing in the creek, cooking hot dogs over a camp fire, coloring at the picnic …

And off they go!

This morning the plan was for Rob to take Linlee camping today; Holly and I would stay back.  Holly was only being excluded because of her history of not being able to sleep – AT ALL – in the same room with Linlee.  She wakes up Linlee and then they both stay awake all night …

We’re still here!

How did a week go by without an update?!  What we’ve been up to… Spending time with  Mémé. Riding daddy.  (How many daddies can give two piggy backs at the same time?) Pretty girls!  We got to visit with our dear friends Anne and Rachel and see their new digs.  All I can say is …

More Horse Therapy

Another year of horse therapy has flown by.  Linlee still enjoys it and has made excellent progress. Little girls in braids, ready to ride! Yep, that is Linlee sitting backwards on the horse.  Sometimes they even have her ride backwards.  Sometimes they have her lie down while the horse is walking!  Linlee went off for …

Picking Strawberries

Even though we were told it is the end of strawberry season and we’d have to hunt the fields for leftovers, we did not find that to be the case at all.  Pickings were easy and the girls were very excited to be gathering their favorite fruit. Neither child would look at the camera on …

Social Butterfly

Holly has never met another child who she did not consider an immediate friend.  Today, however, she met one who did not want to be friends with her.  Ooh, that was hard on this mommy.  We were in the waiting room at the doctor’s office when two more children came in with their parents, probably …

Let’s talk about the symptoms of a stroke…

Unbeknownst to my girls who were happily frolicking in the waves at Cannon Beach, Mémé had a medical emergency while we were there that left us all stunned.  My mother had a stroke.  The reason I decided to post about this extremely personal situation is that none of the adults at the beach house recognized …

Happy 4th of July!

Our 4th started this morning with a trip to Waves of Grain Bakery for coffee and scones… Then the girls took off with Rob and the grandparents to watch the town parade while I stayed back for a little quiet reading (perfect!), so no pictures of that.  They did come home with scads of candy. …
