The 100th Day of Kindergarten!

Today is Liam’s 100th Day of Kindergarten, and his teacher asked the kids to come to school today dressed as if they were 100 years old. Well…as you can imagine, Liam was 100 percent behind THIS idea – he LOVED it!  So, after some thrift store hunting, we came up with the perfect ensemble.  Here…

Field Trip to the Pumpkin Patch!

Since everyone who reads this blog is likely a friend or family member, you already know about our weekend o’ sick…so I’m just going to skip over that except to say that thankfully we all woke feeling healthy and ready to enjoy the sunshine today. Hallelujah! (No…seriously.) So, Liam and I decided to go on…

July: WHOOSH! Gone.

Good Lord – how is it that this summer is flying by?!?  Well, let’s see…you knew we had soccer from the last post.  We had Summer Camp, Aunt Megan came to visit, then Grannie Vee, then we had swimming lessons – all of which were interspersed with playdates, trips to Aunt Eva & Uncle George’s…

Sum-sum-SUMMERTIME!

Holy Cow – I feel like a heel for not posting anything here in over a month! Summer is starting off with a bang and shows no sign of slowing, but I promise to make a more concerted effort to get pictures up – even if they’re “on the fly” like these! (Remember, you can…

The Lost Clancy Brother…?

So…back on St. Patrick’s Day, I played some Irish Music for Liam in the car on the way to school.  All I happened to have with me was a Clancy Brothers’ CD of Irish Drinking Songs, but I popped it in anyway thinking it would just be that one time, just for the duration of…

Easter!

Let me just get this out of the way:  we didn’t make it to Mass on Easter Sunday.  I know, I know…*sigh*.  I’ll do better. We DID make it to an Easter Egg Hunt the day before, though.  Well, I say “Easter Egg Hunt”…what I really mean is “Reinactment of ‘Braveheart’”.  Never have I seen…

New Hobby: Horticulture!

Remember “Uncle Robert”?  (Our very dear friend who’s just like family.) Well, Robert has a BEAUTIFUL garden.  Seriously.  All raised beds, trelisses, manicured perfection – looks like something right out of Colonial Williamsburg!  And for Liam’s Fourth Birthday Uncle Robert built, delivered and taught Liam to plant his very own garden. They poured the dirt,…

He’s FOUR!

We still can’t believe it. More and more when I look over at him, I see a big boy where my baby used to be.  I don’t know where the time has gone.  His personality is blossoming – and he’s FUNNY!  (I mean really.  Comic timing and all.)  He sings all the time, he makes…

The Spring Show

Liam’s Pre-school held their “Spring Show” in the last week of March, just before Spring Break. (They go back April 12.) The theme was “Tropical”, so all the kiddos wore beachy/Hawaiian clothes with leis around their necks – it was a hoot! They’d been working on their songs for weeks in Music Class, each with…

Birthdays and Easter and Concerts and Gardens – oh, my!

This year Liam’s birthday and Easter fell in the same week…the week following Liam’s first Pre-School Spring Show. I did not expect that these events would cause as much extra bustle as they did. (Next time, Mama will be better prepared…sheese!) Now we’re into the second week of April and I can look around and…
