The Big Parade...

Our new house happens to be ON the 4th of July Parade route here in Carlisle. The parade last Saturday provided a nice mid-day unpacking break and a chance for me to dust off my camera...










We are having internet service hooked up at our house tomorrow. It will be nice to be able to share with you a bit more regularly again in the coming weeks! Thank you to everyone who had checked in and left a comment recently. Your words of cheer have really helped as I have been processing a whole host of emotions related to our move. Thank you, thank you dear friendly readers!

Yay, how nice that you're getting internet again! I've really missed your blog posts, it will be so much fun to hear all about the move. And I bet that even though it is hard to leave a place where you've been really happy, it will feel great once you've settled in to the new place, and start to make new happy memories there!

What a great tradition this will be. You may have a house/yard full of people in future years! Hugs. Aunt Carol

My Most Read Thoughts

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…

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…

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.
