Updates and changes to come…

So yes, I do still blog here. At least for now… You see, back when I first created my review blog, I had some very good reasons for starting a second site – many of which no longer exist at this point. I’ve struggled for the past year or so with the job (yes, it’s […]

Wordless Wednesday #207 – Summing up the fall soccer season…

This year we had all 3 girls playing AYSO soccer, in 3 different age divisions, playing in 3 different locations every week. Overall we had beautiful weather this fall with only one game called on account of bad weather (hail in this case). Here’s a quick summary… Some Saturdays were cold: Some were windy: But […]

It’s a soccer-full life…

At least it is for right now – between practices and games we’re at the soccer fields a lot. The girls love it though – they never complain about going to practices or to their own games (they’re not always thrilled to go to each other’s though). Week One of soccer went off without much […]

Two weeks left

Was it really only a couple of months ago that I was lamenting the cool, rainy spring that we had and wishing we’d finally get some summer weather? Trust Mother Nature to oblige – in spades. This has been one of the hottest summers on record here and what I’ve realized is that whether it’s […]

Grammatical

Ok, so I’m somewhat of a grammar geek. Not that I can boast perfect grammar – far from it, but most of my issues are times where I’ve specifically chosen to break away from ‘acceptable’ grammar for the purpose of sounding less ‘formal’ and more similar (I think) to the way that I talk. Like […]

Genetics

I remember back to when I was pregnant with each of my girls, wondering as all expectant parents do – who will my baby look like? Will he/she have my eyes or my husband’s hair color? Ron and I hoped that our kids would end up with his aptitude for mathematics mixed with my love […]
