We’re Facebook Famous!

My apologies for not posting in forever. My long-term substitute position has come to a bittersweet end. I do love those kids. I can't believe I was terrified to walk into the fifth grade for a solid quarter. Before school started, I put up a bulletin board...

Six Years

Six years ago I stepped off a plane. I was soaked with pee and stained with tears. I had an eye infection and was exhausted to my core. This was my view... Six years ago today Jack met his family for the first time. He went straight for Grandma.  Tonight, we will...

What I Told My Children This Morning

I am feeling a little guilty that I haven't been writing at all. In fact, early this weekend my fingers were itching to tap away at keys. Posts jumble around in my brain while Ray and I try to muddle through what we call our "busy season." In a Game of Thrones...

Today Is A Good Day To Be A Stiff

So today, Jack was happy as a clam making some "epic" creations. Bria finally got her braces off. Hanan survived an ankle roll at cross country this morning and celebrated with mani pedis with a friend. Side note... sadly, I was over 30 before I got my first pedicure...

Our Ohana

Where do we start? We are a Navy family, constantly on the move finding the wind in our sails. Ray is the web designer, woodworker, scientist and sailor. B is the writer, bus driver, cook, tutor, housekeeper, substitute teacher and well lots of other things too.

We have big girls in band, cross country and all things high school, a very bossy nine year old into soccer and swimming, a quietly loud eight year old boy who has a love for all things lego and two funny, loving puppies.

There’s lots to do and so much fun. We count our many, many blessings daily.

Stay tuned… things might get interesting with our misadventures in parenting!
