I STRONGLY dislike the process of cooking. For the first 22 years of marriage my husband did most of the cooking because he loves it and he is an amazing chef. We had a great thing going until he switched careers, which decreased his after work flexibility. That left me to cook. (Que the violin) Normally I look at a […]
This is how we do it. Dates with the g-babies are an event. We sang, danced, read books and I taught Kenna how to play Old Maid. I was so worried that Nomi would cry with her mama not being in sight but she did great and get big sister kept her entertained.
We made brunch for Tori’s birthday. The whole tribe (and a few adopted members) swarmed her home for a few hours. Ironically as I was thinking about what to say about my oldest I came across a draft in my blog that I had written for her birthday ten years ago. How crazy (and perfect) is time?! To my 16 […]
It is never going to make sense, seeing my little’s become adults. Jordan has officially joined the ranks! The transition from teen to adult appeared smooth to me although he may tell a different story. Jordan has always seemed like a young/old man to me. I remember holding him only a couple of hours after his birth and looking […]
Lead us to Wakanda! It was an event just walking in to the movie theaters to watch the film. So many people dressed in their Dashiki’s, others with shoulders layered in colorful Kente cloth. My favorite character… Okoye. A warrior after my heart. We were enamored. Wakanda Forever!
One challenge for us in the midst of all of our running to and fro between home-school coops and classes is finding consistent time for physical activity. We decided to add in a little gym time to the schedule. Kobe enjoyed lifting weights though I think the workout got the best of him in the end.
Whenever we have an opportunity to utilize a work trip for togetherness time we take it! The hubby had some visits to make in New York which was right up my alley. We stayed in the heart of Manhattan which added its own extra flavor to the excursion. Speaking of flavor, to all my fellow cheesecake junkies, I have one […]
Music is an integral part of our lives. Classical, jazz, country, hip hop, you name it. I do teach my tribe the importance of knowing what the music they are […]
Nat LOVES all things Broadway. Her play list is full of an eclectic mix of show tunes. When I told her we were going to see Newsies I thought she […]
We showed up to Kobe’s first flag football practice expecting to be spectators. Mo never stays in that role long when it comes to our kids participation in sports. He […]
Tori loves anchors. One of her favorite bible passages is: Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, […]
This super big cool aid grin is due to the fact that we thought we were returning to the hospital for yet another procedure but after the MD assessment we […]
I can’t believe G☆baby is 6 months old! Her little facial expressions crack me up. We never have to wonder about how Makena feels.
