Posted in: Us- Aug 22, 2017 Comments Off on First Day of Homeschooling :: First Grade & Preschool

We made the decision to bring our kids home and school them before the end of Kindergarten (for Burke).  We had LOVED our school experiences thus far with preschool and Kindergarten too.  However, when it came down to figuring out our long term plan, knowing that we had one more on the way to bring […]

Felicity’s Birth Story by Annemarie

It’s hard to know where to begin with a birth story when there is so much to want to capture for memory’s sake. I didn’t really get to document or write anything during this pregnancy so maybe I’ll just start with that. We found out we were pregnant back in October. I was a few […]

Burke’s first year of elementary school came to and end this week. I snapped this picture of him as we were dropping him off (late) on the last day that he had to wear his uniform. New glasses, but not too much change since the beginning of the year in looks. He’s taller, has loved […]

Hard to believe how quickly this year went by.  It seems like just yesterday that we were getting him ready for the first day.  While there’s been many a day recently that his morning mantra has turned into “I don’t want to go to school”, as soon as he gets to the parking lot, he […]

Mallory has the greatest group of two year old friends. We got them all together this morning for a little donut celebration of Mallory and Kyah turning TWO.  The looks on their faces when they were given free reign of eating those yummy donut holes was priceless.  It didn’t take them long to devour all […]
