Archive for September, 2010

Yesterday, I kept Justin home from preschool just to make sure he was feeling 100% better. Yesterday, I got a little taste of what it would be like if Justin was not in preschool while I do homeschool with Ella. While Ella was downstairs doing this… Justin was upstairs doing this… Yes, he was having […]


This weekend did not go as planned. The plan was to go to 2 soccer games.  As luck would have it, I was the parent in charge of snacks and drinks for both of those games.  The plan was also to take Ella to a birthday party on Saturday and Justin to one on Sunday. […]
