news from the yard

September 13th, 2010

Will: “Mom, some kids at school were making fun of you” Mom: “Oh yeah? How so?” Will: “They said, ‘Yo mama’s so fat she doesn’t even fit in the universe’” The correct response was probably not, “Well didja punch them?”

I’m number 2!

September 12th, 2010

I played on a co-ed soccer team from 1st grade until 5th grade, and though I could identify the three best players on the team, the classification stopped there. The rest of us were just on the team. Whether this was a gender thing, result of my personality (apparently *everyone* but me knows girl politics […]

the house of infectious diseases

August 31st, 2010

School is back in session and we’re running ahead of schedule in our tour of childhood infectious diseases having missed the first half of Will’s first week due to viral pink eye in both eyes (and one of mine). I apparently also got the knock-you-dead-with-aches respiratory virus to go with it which he somehow missed. […]

my six year old son

August 19th, 2010

in this order, wants to sign up for yoga classes, then guitar, then swimming and if he has time left over in his schedule maybe soccer. I can’t figure out if he’s already realized girls take yoga or if he really is still too cool to care what the other kids think. Either way, I’m […]

In recognition of the independence of our country, we spent Independence weekend in Colorado Springs at the Broadmoor. (The Bro More to those in the know) Lovely hotel from the outside. […]

northern california tide pools

June 18th, 2010

We’ve been suffering through heatwave after heatwave out here in the northwest driving us to the ocean for relief from the sweltering 75 degree heat. A few weekends ago, this brought us to the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, just north of Half Moon Bay in Moss Beach. At low tide, the tide pools are vast and […]

well *that* was harder than it looked!

March 7th, 2010

We ran the Napa marathon, today. I’ve been joking with Doug that when our friends go to Napa they get spa treatments and drink wine, and when we went, all we got were stinky tshirts and in my case a little soul in my stroll. We must be doing it wrong. So it went. We […]

exactly when is innocence lost?

January 18th, 2010

I was home alone with the kids, today, so after a trip to REI/Target/a local thrift store to refresh the rain gear, a rain walk, some leaf races, a bath, and while sucking back hot chocolate, I gave the kids pedicures. Will insisted that I paint his nails a dusty rose color despite my insistence […]

hello, again

December 21st, 2009

So there has in fact been sewing, crafting, running, cooking and interesting things going on in our lives. BUT, I’m not feeling up to sharing, as there has also been viruses galore. Something that made me smile:

shh, all my secrets are belong to you
