Winding down

Yep. Summer’s coming to an end. But that doesn’t mean we have to sit around (which we’ve been doing a lot lately). Wow. We’ve done a lot in a few weeks… One day we went to a nature park to do a scavenger hunt and we ended up staying there “fishing” and playing in the […]

We passed!! x2

What a crazy summer! We never had swimming lessons before, and we did so well that we passed BOTH our classes this summer. Ev started in level 1, and even passed level 2. I breezed by level 2 and passed level 3! I think we’re done for the summer, but we are going to be […]


I mean, jacuzzi. It’s hard to get it right when there’s so many to look at at the Kohler Design Center. They have so many fancy bathrooms… I just want to live there! We have got the travel bug – either that, or we just like living out of suitcases. We have been three places […]

Summer has officially started

Or also known as “goodbye to our friends.” See, our neighbors and bestest friends since we were born moved away to Ohio this week and I was really sad. We had a bunch of going-away parties to wish them well, but I was really sad that they were leaving. What am I going to do […]

Two week activity ban is over

And just in time for summer break to start!! I was really excited to go back to school – even more excited to be the first 1st grader to have braces. Everyone was real happy to have me back, and I didn’t even have to go to gym (but then, I couldn’t do recess either). […]

A horrible, very bad day

First, let me start by saying that I’m ok. Banged up, bruised, and swollen, but I’m here to tell the tale. And what a tale it is! Here goes… The long Memorial Day weekend was fun, but I was ready to go to school. First, we ate breakfast, then went to the cleaners – all […]

By George, I think she’s got it.

So, a few weeks ago I got a new bike. All was well and good on day 1. Then on day 2, things went bad. The bike kept falling over. The bike was heavy. Everybody was running into me. Mom was getting ready to sell my brand new bike. Then, everyone started getting in on […]

Are there Skylanders in Heaven?

It’s been an interesting week here in Chicagoland. From parks to zoos to pottery galleries…we’ve been all over. We missed the whole “March in like a lion” and tried our hand at flying a kite in April. It didn’t work real well – there was just no wind! I ran and ran to fly my […]

I can only high-five with my shoulder

Oh boy. Do I have great news for you. I. Can. Ride. A. Bike. Yep. Oh yeah! I’m cool! Uh-huh!  Let me do the happy dance. Better yet… I’ll ride away into the sunset. See ya! My gosh. We’ve been busy! From jumping on trampolines to bikes to discovering “nature”, we’ve seen it all. The […]

Spring Break 2014

Wow! What a week! According to my school paper writing, it was pretty boring, but really it was very busy and we did a LOT of stuff (I just forgot most of it for my paper). So the week started by going to see Muppets Most Wanted. It was really good. And my friend Jocelyn […]
