We made it home from the Shriner's Hospital for Children in Chicago! That's a long drive, but we're getting used to it. :-) We wanted to let you know that we made it home safe and in the meantime here are some adorable pictures of Ella when we stopped for dinner. ♡ ♡ ♡

We've just finished up at Shriners Hospital for Children. Colin got his new brace. Here he is in the old brace and the new brace. :-) He really likes the new brace, it fits so much better. Now we're traveling back home to Michigan. ♡ ♡ ♡

It's another road trip to Chicago day. LOL We're getting to be old hands at this trip, because we have to go so often to the Shriners Hospital for Children for appointments for the kids. Today's appointment at Shriners is just a really quick one to get Colin's new brace. :-) So we're pretty excited about that. We will post pictures after we get it. In the meantime here's us at a rest stop on...

All four of us had eye appointments this morning , and since the eye doctor is in town I had the bright idea of us walking there. Which worked out great, except that I had my eyes dilated and then had to walk home. LOL But otherwise the appointments went really well. We love our eye doctor. He always explains every single thing and gives us all some lessons on how eyes work. All of our eyes...

Colin is a very logical person. So sometimes, other people's emotions and fears don't make sense to him, because they're not logical. But when his sister was scared of the bugs on our nature walk, he grabbed her hand and helped her along, caring more about her feelings than what he felt was logical. What Colin understands, after a lot of learning, is that we don't need to know or understand...

We've really been enjoying going to the community center for lunch and walking on the trails afterwards. We can't get Colin to go on our morning walks with us, but he's really been enjoying choosing nature trails and tracking our paths on them. It's fun to come home and see our route on my fitness app. And today we saw a bunch of friends after we came out of nature trails, so we went back into...

THROWBACK THURSDAY!!!! In June 2008, the kids and I went on what would be our last trip with my mother-in-law, their Grandma, to North Carolina. She passed away in January 2009. So these pictures, and memories are very special to us. :) If I'd known she was sick, I would have taken pictures of her, whether she liked it or not. But I didn't. I do have these though, of my babies. <3 <3 <3

It has been a very long day. We went to Colin's rehearsal tonight, and as much as I love sitting in a hot room on metal folding chairs listening to the same lines over and over and over again, today wasn't that fun. First my mama bear-ness almost came out when another child insulted my son, but I reined it in. And then the director insulted New Kids on the Block. I was not having a good day....

Today was the first Meet up & Eat up of the summer! That's the national lunch program for school-age kids, and it's at our community center in our town. We try to go all summer to support it and to see other kids and families. :-) After we ate, we decided to walk some of the nature trails at the community center. In the previous years of this program, we would look at the map and walk only the...

It's that time of year again, Colin is in a local play, and any of you that can make it are welcome to attend! :D It's absolutely free, just bring a lawn chair or blanket. I will list the dates and times below, and remember if you do come, there is a show right afterwards put on by the adults (this year they're doing Once Upon a Mattress), so if you like, plan to stay for that one too. :) And...

Here is this week's After the Who video, in which all things Doctor Who are discussed. In particular, last night's new episode. So remember, if you haven't seen the newest episode, or are avoiding previews for the rest of the season, don't watch the video! Spoilers! <3 <3 <3

To my husband, Colin and Ella's dad,

When we became parents, I wasn't sure what to expect from you. My childhood had taught me that fathers weren't to be counted on, and they were something to be feared. Sitcoms I grew up with taught me that fathers were dumb, and useless. My church upbringing taught me that you were to be the head of the household, but I didn't know what that looked like....

Today is the 3 year anniversary of the release of the music video Carry On. <3 This video is still one of the best things we've ever gotten to be a part of. Even though so much has changed, with us, and with the band that made this video, it will always have a very special place in our hearts, as will all of the people involved with it. :D <3 <3 <3

We were in for the night, after having an uneventful day , when my friend called and wanted to get together at the park. So the kids and I headed out to the park after dinner. Once there not only did we meet the friend we planned to meet, but I actually saw a whole bunch of people I haven't seen in years. All thanks to Ella who became like the queen of the playground. She organized a sand...

Ella wanted to do an Ella's Fashion Pick for you all today, but as soon as she saw my outfit , she decided I needed to be in it too. Lol I won't try to describe both of our outfits in my usual fashion speak that I do for these, but I would like to point out that Ella looks exactly like me in the 80s, except my oversized glasses were prescription and purple. Lol And I dressed up for no apparent...
