I haven’t posted any vids of Carson for a while, partly for the reason you have seen on the videos: he cannot help himself from grabbing the camera and touching the lense and vid screens, which drives me crazy. But this morning he woke up in such a good mood, that I had to grabContinue reading “Get your Video Fix”
These are some pics I took at the pumpkin patch. It is so fun to see all the bright colors at the market.
I recently got a bee in my bonnet about scrapbooking some old family pictures. I don’t have the time or energy for a full-blown family scrapbook of my ancestors leading up to me, and I don’t even really have a PLAN about which era I’m going to record, but I knew I needed to digitizeContinue reading “Brazen History”
Don’t you love Saturdays? I love them. And this is the first one in quite some time that we have been home and Trent hasn’t had to work. I don’t really notice anyone else who notifies the rest of the blog world about their mundane daily updates, but I feel the need to post everyContinue reading “T.G.I.S.”

He is no longer content in a stroller for longer than, oh, I’d say about 10 yards. Actually, make that 10 feet. So walks areContinue reading “A Walk and a Hat”
5. Don’t forget to put your deoderant on. Nothing can make you feel more like the crazy, self-conscious middle school students you are teaching than pinning your elbows to your waist all afternoon for fear of someone smelling you. 4. Always check your shoes on different surfaces before you leave the house. Loud, squeaky shoesContinue reading “Top Five Things I Have Learned about Substitute Teaching in the Last Three Weeks”

This random post is for my Oregon blog readers…at least I think this only applies to you. If you have never purchased spices in the bulk food section at Winco…you are really missing out! I decided I was craving the taste and smell of pumpkin bread, and that instead of paying $1.85 for one sliceContinue reading “Such a steal!”
