Mid June Goals Check-in

Mid June Goals Check-in

Well, I’ve been doing a bunch of web design, and lining up all sorts of  new things to do (some of which I’m gonna not blog about…shhh). I’m feeling like I’m finally in summer mode – not really sure what day it is, loving that I don’t have to leave the house, wahoo! I’ve also… Continue Reading

One Moment | End of the School Year

One Moment | End of the School Year

Hooray! School is out for the boys! They were in such a good mood on the last day of school (which was Wednesday) that they agreed to post for pictures (it was “Western Day” for Logan, thus the cowboy getup). I wish I had positioned them on the first step, so we could better look… Continue Reading
