Jett insisted that he write Jude’s lunch note today. Every time that Jude or Jett eats “home lunch” – their name for when I pack their lunch (vs. school lunch), I write a note for them and stick it in their lunch box. For Jude that is every.single.day since about halfway through his kindergarten year [...]
It was a teensy weensy bittersweet to take our Father’s Day picture this year in front of a new tree. The tree at our old house was planted on Josh’s first Father’s Day a few months after Jude was born. The year was 2005. If anything, that tree is the only thing we miss at [...]
Here is an entry for The Naughty Files, just for old times’ sake.
Today I was heading down to our basement to work in my quilting room while the older boys were in school and Jace was napping. I was snacking on a string cheese stick and at the bottom of the stairs I [...]
Happy birthday, Mom! Happy birthday to our nephew Jackson!
Happy Valentime’s Day to the rest of us. Yes, I know it’s really Valentine, but it’s always Valentime in our house. Just to remind us of how funny it is when people say it wromg. I mean wrong. See how easy it is to comfuse n’s [...]
In December, I was having a hard time getting the older boys to behave in the car ride to school in the mornings and as a result I implemented a “Gold Stars for Gold Fish” program. If the boys did a great job getting ready in the morning and behaved their little selves on the [...]
Since it has been awhile since I’ve written about my kids, here is installment #2 of catching up with the Zeigler boys.
Jett is now 5 1/2 years old. He is in kindergarten. He likes school. A little too much, I fear. I don’t know if he’s completely into the learning aspect, but socially speaking, [...]
Jace turned two in August which makes him… just over two years old. Math was never my strong suit. But I do know cute when I see it!
Jace is getting really good at being two years old; the ladies at Fareway could attest to that today. When we first arrived, he [...]
Jude walked into the house after getting home from school yesterday and vomited all over the kitchen floor. To get caught up on our illness drama click here –> (but I wouldn’t do it without a face mask on).
It does worry me a little bit that all of this is happening after we move [...]
I’ve been thinking about this day for a long time. I’ve been eagerly anticipating it and it’s finally here! Yay Jude & Jett! Yay me!
Introducing Jude, the six-year-old FIRST grader:
And now, for the first time ever, please join me in congratulating our five-year-old KINDERGARTNER, Jett:
And not to be [...]
Happy birthday, Jace (Jacey, Jason, Toby, Vegetable Lasagna, et al.)!
Jace is best experienced, but if I had to describe him, I would say:
He is my blondie.
He is a mix of sweetheart and emerging independent.
He doesn’t speak much, but never fails in getting his point across.
He thinks he doesn’t [...]
