It’s Shrove Tuesday!

So, today is Shrove Tuesday also known as Fat Tuesday is also known as Pancake Day. Traditionally, this is the last day of rich foods. We do this because tomorrow is Ash Wednesday which reminds us of our earthly mortality and which begins Lent a season of sacrifice. Here’s a great article from NatGeo. The pictures…

Our First Epiphany Feast

To end the Christmas season I hosted an impromptu Epiphany Feast. One of the reasons I love the Episcopal Church are the traditions. I’ve long been interested in The Twelve Days of Christmas. There are significant meanings for our faith, of course, but the rituals that slow down the season seem priceless. Christmas is always…

Deer Valley Family Camp

If you know us- you know how much our family LOVES Deer Valley Family Camp. I’ve had a few friends ask about going. I finally sat down and wrote one of them a guide. I thought I’d repurpose it 🙂 Here’s great video a family put together: https://youtu.be/zHTTgaFe33E   We go to a YMCA Family…

I’m Back.

As a mother of 3 with a part-time job I have to say that posting every two years is a win. Hopefully, I’ll be back before 2021. lol

Eeeecccck, schools (almost) in session!

I can’t believe school starts in a week! I’ll have three kids in the same school! The littlest one, E, will join his sisters at The GLOBE. He’ll be on the Mandarin track too. We had a great summer! The highlights were Family Camp and a road trip to NYC.  I love my little people-I…

I like that I have the privilege of staying home with my little people-for a lot of reasons. One, is that I get to hear them verbalize the things floating around their little developing brains. I’ve got to find a way to document the things they say. We’re back from a week at the beach-so…

So our house got broken into.

During the first week of February I came home from picking the girls up from around 3:30.  The garage was open when we got home and I thought that was odd. I thought it odd-because there was a car that wasn’t from our neighborhood sitting in the cul-de-sac so I had specifically watched it closed….

Thoughts on the Y

So, we joined the Y again. We’ve never really used it. Mainly because when I was working and having children (3 in 39 months!) I did not have the energy nor time. And because all 3 were too small to be left alone near water-it was impossible. Our nanny did it-with much success. But while…
