So I have just discovered that the large bushes growing in the back
corner of our garden are actually tomato plants (I know, I'm not much of
a gardener). Not knowing much about all that, I was a bit sceptical
about actually eating… Continue

Summer is so much fun for children, with more family time, vacation, summer camps, fun outdoor activities, water fun and just pure bliss. Summer time represents a break from the old routine and a chance to just “be kids”. Summer also means having the children at home full time and the au pair’s role is crucial
in coordinating all the activities, providing transportation and filling the gaps… Continue

Travelling of any sort is always a crap shoot for me. Aside from the logistics of 4 kidlets, (although, with everyone out of “babyhood”, I have finally become adept enough at packing that I can leave behind the kitchen sink!), the Griswold moniker is well earned…I seem to encounter “adventures” that fall outside of the typical. Moreover, MY typical usually falls within… Continue

Today is officially the last day of July. I can't believe this summer has been flying by so fast. It feels like yesterday I was getting out the summer clothes and planning Raelyn's birthday festivities. It feels like time is just passing me by! And has anyone else noticed that it seems like it's already starting to get dark out sooner? Apparently, a cold front is coming through as well so this last day of July is feeling more like mid-September. I'm not ready yet! … Continue

This is a wonderful summer salad that my friend Melissa first made for me at a birthday party. Then when my family went to the beach last week, I knew I wanted to make this salad. Everyone loved it, although some said they might prefer it with feta cheese instead of the goat. I… Continue

Moms, we simply cannot get enough love, especially summer love. Maybe it's because summer love feels friendlier when we are walking to the beach carrying a chair, a favorite book and an iPod to keep our own delicious thoughts company. Seriously, don't your olfactory sensibilities become completely engaged with fresh suntan lotion? The smell of Coppertone and I'm 13 all over again.
Summer sea breezes make most of us swoon. Shakespeare's famous, "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?… Continue

I discovered MomBloggers just in time - before today I wouldn't have had any time or space to do anything with it!
Our company left yesterday morning and now it's back to business - the business of summer!
We've just had guests stay with us for about 10 days. It was a good visit, but it was right on the heels of getting out of school for the summer, and I think my family was pretty tired.
We're all ready to not have to go anywhere or do anything… Continue

Guest contributor and MobiStories.com
producer Wendy Toone, offers great
tips this week on how your kids can avoid brain drain when they're out
It's Summertime! Yipppee! Time for swimming, trips to the beach,
camping, and all sorts of "no more school" activities. However, many
kids suffer from a backward slide in their reading development when
reading activities wane over the summer months.
Students can… Continue

Admittedly, my life has been a ball of stress lately and I've been feeling myself slowly cracking. This weekend,my daughter is going to Maryland with her father to see his sister which means I'm actually going to have 2 FULL DAYS OFF! Hello, 'stay'cation! Kevin and I are going to be fully taking advantage of this weekend and we intend on not doing a darn thing that has to do with kids or work or exes... NOTHING. So, truth be told, I'm feelinglike the only thing I can (or want) to do at this… Continue

I know I usually do Post It Note Tuesday today but since I haven't
blogged since Friday I'm going to pass this one by to give you all an
actual post. I really apologize for my absence. It has been a long,
busy weekend ending with me getting a head cold, an eye infection, AND
a sprained/pulled muscle in my shin, hence why I didn't post yesterday.
I know they say bad things happen in threes so I don't know if I should
be aggravated they all popped up at the same time… Continue

I grew up in Illinois, in prime corn and soybean country. I didn’t grow up on a farm, I was a townie, but cornfields surrounded my small town. I LOVE cornfields. Some of my happiest memories involve cornfields. I used to play hide-and seek in them with my friends, I got lost a time or two in them, I have had make-out sessions in them and I… Continue
