A quilt for a shower

I was thrilled to be invited to a baby shower for a friend. Her baby boy is due at the end of September, and he will be her first. I feel honored that she has sought out my advice on many topics recently, and I dove head first into creating a quilt for her little […]

The July block for the SSS is complete! Actually, it was finished a few days ago; I’m just now getting around to sharing it with you. I’m knitting away on a maternity sweater for me to wear this winter before I cast on for August’s block. Besides, it’s not even August yet! I am also […]

A day at the lake

The boys and I gratefully accepted an invitation to the lake today from Uncle Jared, Aunt Starla and their kiddo, H. We had a wonderful day, and I truly wish that we had time to visit them on their vacation again this week. It was a laid back day of boating, swimming, fishing, and general […]

Even the Trees

One of the many, many things I love about going back to Texas is getting to see the trees I grew up with. You see, even the trees are different down in the Lone Star State. I marvel at the Texas Live Oak trees; to me they feel like the quintessential tree. I’m sure that […]

A certain big brother turned four today, at 3 am to be exact. I am certain that he slept through the actual time, but I didn’t. For some reason, 3 am rolls around on his birthday and my eyes pop open. I mindfully acknowledge the time of his birth, and then drift back to sleep, […]

We are fortunate enough to get to raise two little boys in a town full of trains. We live in a city with the second largest rail road system in the country, and the boys are both fascinated by trains. There are tracks only a couple of miles from our home; we frequently cross them […]

The preschooler saw a grain elevator when we were in Lawrence the other evening; “What is THAT big thing?”. The next day he really wanted to go see it again; instead we headed to a larger one that was here in town.

The 4th

We had an eventful weekend around here! There was a visit from Uncle Nick, a sleep over at Grandma and Papa’s house, a parade (photos below), a whole lot of rain, and some fireworks in Lawrence. Oh, yeah, not just any fireworks, but the fireworks that we had a front row seat for; I didn’t […]
