Mother of the Flower Girls...

The girls were part of a a family wedding celebration yesterday as flower girls. They have been looking forward to this day for months. As the mother of the flower girls I know this day is not all about them, but it's so fun to help them feel like princesses for the day. (And maybe I have more than a few picture documenting the occasion...heavily weighted towards the flower girls of course. Sorry Pam, I'm sure you would have like a few more snaps of the bride and groom...luckily they had their own photographer.)

We had a lovely day. The wedding was beautiful, the reception great fun (the photo booth was a BLAST), and it was a good thing Brea feel asleep during the ceremony since she needed that rest to be able close down the dance floor at the end of the night! Thanks Matt and Jess for allowing our little princesses to be part of your special day. Congrats...have a fabulous time in Jamaica!

Thanks for posting these. What a special time. Reminds me of when my 2 were flower girls for their cousin on the Merriman side. Aunt Carol

DIY: Reusable Produce Bags

With Earth Day festivities gearing up for tomorrow, I thought I'd take a moment to post a short DIY tutorial on making your own reusable cloth produce bags. (Tutorial inspired by my favorite crafty mom blog, Crazy Mom Quilts. Produce bags inspired by running into my friend Laura at the grocery store while she was stuffing her produce into these.) This is my next step in the fight against the excessive use of plastic bags.

Our family has been making small environmentally minded changes in our daily lives over the past few years. We use reusable shopping bags. We've stopped buying/using Ziploc bags and plastic wrap. I'm trying to commute around town via bike more. I'm being more mindful about where the food we buy comes from and how it was produced. We more often hang our laundry on the line to dry in the spring and summer instead of just throwing it in the dryer. (Which is convenient at the moment since our dryer has decided to quit drying.) As we use up chemically clean…

Senseless...

Today while I sat in a classroom supervising students as they worked on their math assignments, I watched Lexi through the window enjoying time with her friends during recess. My heart smiled.

Those moments, moments of learning and carefree fun, those are the moments that SHOULD make up a school day. As a Mom, and an elementary school employee, my heart is breaking over the news and images coming out of Connecticut today. 
I send my kids off to school everyday without a second thought that they will return safely come day's end, just as I'm sure each one of those parents in Newtown did this morning.
Every day I walk into my school for work without a second thought to my personal safety, just as I'm sure each of those teachers, paras, custodians, sectretaries, etc in Newtown did this morning. 
Theories will be published. Evidence will be presented. Words will be exchanged about gun control and the need for change in our current culture of violence. I don't suspec…

Sunday Morning Silly...

Once in a while Dando's curiosity urges him to venture off the bookshelf so he check out other toys in the house.




I think he thinks Froggy is missing a few marbles.
