It’s Been a Bumpy Ride …

 … but with the help of these two amazing guys … all is well now. I stopped posting to this blog quite some time ago because chaos took over our lives. Some of it was bad … real bad. But some of it was good … real good. Things seem to have come to us […]

Yesterday: In Pictures.

  Well, say “Hello” to Sherman …  and his crazy brother, Zack …   These are the newest members of our family. And if you have ever heard me talk about cats before, you are in shock right now. Yes, I have gone to the dark side …  ever since Miss Lyra came into our […]

University of Maine Museum of Art Field Trip.

  Last month, Eva Wagner and I coordinated a field trip to the University of Maine Museum of Art for the Penobscot County Homeschoolers. Eva is the Education Coordinator for the museum. She is amazing, gentle, and brilliant. And I am sort-of the “creator” of the homeschool group … which I think I created mostly to take advantage of […]

Isaac’s Drawing.

Isaac asked me yesterday what I did for work before he was born. My response was that I had several jobs during my young adult life … so did he want to know them all? He told me to pick the one I had when Daddy and I first starting dating… Well, the truth is […]

Sunday is Daddy & Isaac Day.
