I don't want to play kickball

Observing them in their natural habitat

Shhhh....crouch down low, won't you? We need to whisper and be very aware of our movements. Take a moment and calm your breath down, or they might spook. Now, slowly - very slowly - take a look through that doorway. You may need to crane your neck a little to see them around the corner...but they'll come into view shortly.…

Keep off my (very small) lawn

My son does not like the backyard in our new house.



In our old house, there was a big backyard that was mostly flat and it was perfect for water battles and running around. In the new house, the backyard mostly consists of a hill (that will be great for sledding on), but we definitely can't have water…

I'm watching your eyes

My eyesight is bad. Really bad. Bad as in: I memorize the color of what the technician is wearing at the eye doctor's office, because once I take my contacts out I get a little lost when they move me from room to room.…

Keeping your eyes on the prize

I can remember my first pair of glasses that I wore at four years old. They were 1980s-style (too-big-for-your-face) with a little cluster of strawberries on the arms near the hinge. I have had very poor eyesight for my entire life. My wonderful husband, however, has excellent eyesight. And thankfully, our son seems to…

Boy, the times have surely changed!

Yesterday, I found myself reminiscing. I was thinking about and appreciating my childhood, old friends and every experience good or bad. I remember going outside to play with my friends. We all had Nintendo and Sega Genesis systems, but those were only played when we had company come over who didn't have their own systems...or we had to be indoors. It wasn't as addictive as games seem to be now…

Going on a Nature Walk

Step 1: Collection



On Friday, I handed two cellophane bags to my kids and we took a walk.  They each began collecting small items from nature.  Jellybean was way less selective than Buddy. She also listened better to the instruction: "Don't dump your bag until I get a picture!" …
