Going to School Nerves

I still remember how I felt at the beginning of the school year.  I remember how I felt in grade school in Wisconsin, and then middle and high school in Pennsylvania.  I generally always liked school, but I didn’t always feel the same way at the beginning of each year. In Wisconsin, I was pretty… (read more)

No pictures for this post…

I learned something interesting yesterday.  It is a mom thing, and it involves poop, so if you are not interested, stop reading right now!  But the thing I learned was that kids can be constipated, sometimes really badly, even when they are pooping every day.  Turns out that if kids, or anyone really, ignores or… (read more)

Almost poncho weather; Is there almost a poncho?

One week of first grade is almost done.  So far we are still deleted from the bus list so I am driving Evan to and from school every day.  Evan spiked a fever on Wednesday and had to miss Thursday, which was hard for him because it was gym day.  I don’t have any info… (read more)

Armstrong Playground

Evan and I went to the playground yesterday, just the one closest to our house.  It is so great that we can walk there in a few minutes.  It is close enough that we can carry basketballs, hula hoops, jump ropes, Frisbees, baseballs and bats, etc. etc.  There is a baseball field on one side… (read more)

So busy summer!

Summer is going not at all as I expected.  First of all, I had thought I was going to have trouble keeping Evan entertained all summer.  Since school was out, he wouldn’t have somewhere to go every day.  Since dance class ended with the recital in early June, he wouldn’t have that commitment each week. … (read more)

No pool for Mama

Dennis planned an outing today, something involving a lake and the convertible.  Evan nixed the original idea of Lake Arthur in Moraine State Park because the edge of the lake is too pebbly.  So plans got changed to North Park pool, with a little golf/putting first.  Then Evan un-invited me, because this was going to… (read more)

I want that movie recliner in my living room

I can’t remember the last time I went to a movie in a theater on the day that it opened.  But last night we went to see Despicable Me 3, and it was so much fun.  Anyone who grew up in the 80s will get a kick out of it, and it is a good… (read more)
