Back in the Swing of Things

Phew – it’s been over a week since I last posted.  My sister facebooked me to say – get some pictures up! As always, it’s tough to find a balance and do everything you want to do and do it well.  Being a teacher, mom, wife, friend – that’s a lot of balls to juggle … Continue reading »

A Day at the Park

What a terrific weekend! We played and played and played and played. These days Blake is pure sunshine.  He is so happy and seems to really enjoy everything we do.  He loves baths, reading, building towers, knocking them down, visiting parks, going for walks…and on and on. And I love every minute I get to … Continue reading »
