Summer School, yes, Really.

reading 2

We finished school on Thursday of last week. We’ve been playing ever since. We’ve had house guests, two days at the beach, two birthdays, and a lot of fun in the last six days. We’re going to play, play, play, but we’re also going to keep on trucking. We’re doing summer school this year. I’m […]

The Week in Review

kids at the garden

It was a mellow week as week’s go. No one threw up. That, in itself, is cause for celebrating. And we did, actually, on Monday. FishChick6 reported that she had “pooped logs”. If you’re a mother whose child has ever had diarrhea for a week, you know that this is indeed, worthy of celebrating. We […]

Support a Ride for the Wounded

evan and fishboys

Nathan, Daniel, and the FishBoys – 2003 Years ago, and I do mean, YEARS ago, before the six kids, before the miscarriages, FishPapa, FishBaby, (now FishBoy15), and I moved to the smallish town of Paso Robles, CA.

The Week in Review

week in review spidey birthday cake

This weekend I am at a blogging conference in the boonies (read: no wifi and wildlife in abundance). Travel for work is something I rarely do. I like home. I like suburbia. About once a year, I bust out of my comfort zone and go “talk shop” with folks. I typically return home with new […]

The Week in Review

boys at beach

Sunday seems like it was a million years ago. It was a day of gluttony. I cracked open the last jar of aprium jar and spread it lavishly over baguette. I was liberal with the cream in my coffee. I indulged in a chocolate croissant. Just because. It was a nice foil to the server […]
